In this film written and directed by Wim Wenders, Bruno Ganz plays Daniel, one of two angels who watch over the citizens of Berlin, listening to their thoughts. When he falls in love with a trapeze artist (Solvieg Dommartin), he dreams of becoming human. With the help of an American actor (Peter Falk, playing himself), in Berlin to make a film about the war, Daniel achieves his desire. The film was remade in 1998 as ’City of Angels’ starring Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan.

"What is it, what is it Peter, why does your mind stray?"

This is a wonderful and spellbinding film in which two angels move invisibly around Berlin, listening to the thoughts and fears of ordinary mortals and offering their comfort. In the midst of this beautiful odyssey is Peter Falk, who gives a heroic performance as himself, a Hollywood star, in Berlin for a film based on the city's Nazi past. He is of particular interest to the watching angels, being an ex-angel who has traded his immortality to become a human actor - as is Marion, a circus trapeze artist whom one of the angels falls in love with. Wings Of Desire is a mythical and joyful experience whose transcendent beauty will uplift your heart.
