WINGS OF DESIRE

part of

Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road

(1987) dir Wim Wenders w/Bruno Ganz, Solveig Dommartin, Otto Sander, Peter Falk [128 min; DCP]
WINGS OF DESIRE is one of cinema’s loveliest city symphonies. Bruno Ganz is Damiel, an angel perched atop buildings high over Berlin who can hear the thoughts of all the people living below. But when he falls in love with a beautiful trapeze artist, he is willing to give up his immortality to be with her. Made not long before the fall of the Berlin wall, this stunning tapestry of sounds and images, shot in black and white and color by the legendary Henri Alekan, is movie poetry. – The Criterion Collection

“Evokes a mood of reverie, elegy and meditation.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Wings of Desire is one of Wenders’s most stunning achievements.” – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

“A sublimely beautiful, deeply romantic film for our times.” – David Stratton, Variety
