DER HIMMEL ÜBER BERLIN

Wings of Desire is one of cinema’s loveliest city symphonies. Damiel, an angel perched atop buildings high over Berlin who can hear the thoughts, fears, hopes and dreams 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 and come back to earth 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, is movie poetry. And it forever made the name Wim Wenders synonymous with film art.

Bruno Ganz, Otto Sander, Solveig Dommartin
