Description
Wings of Desire (Der Himmel über Berlin) 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—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 to come back to earth to be with her. Made not long before the fall of the Berlin Wall, this stunning tapestry of sounds and image… More >>

  1. Save your $3.50 DVD rental fee. If you’re looking for a movie that will make you feel like City of Angels made you feel, look elsewhere! Sorry, my vote is for Hollywood. The director of Wings admits that there was no script before shooting began. The extras that came with the Wings DVD, interviews and info on Berlin, were more entertaining than the movie.

  2. Perhaps because I had been so entranced by “City of Angels,” the remake of this film, my disappointment is great. This is a somber, dreary film with subtitles that don’t seem to make sense in colloquial English. But, then, maybe my disappointment is really over the ending of “City of Angels,” because the heroine in “Wings of Desire” was not killed. Why did this happen to Meg Ryan’s character in “City of Angels?”

  3. Mr Herzog would have us belive in ANGELS, and that, if they actualy wanted to “do it” in sleazy lounges in Berlin, or to consort within, they would. That they would ever feel such a thing as SEXUAL DESIRE is to mention an UNCHRISTIAN (Invert Pentagram ) thing. Up in the HEAVEN place where all the washed-up types gather to confer, said HOLY GUARDIAN ANGELS’ LUST for Columbo is snickered at, considered embarrising, and is never, ever mentioned in polite society. Our father, GOD THE FATHER would never allow us to have knowledge of such an angle’s feeling such base emotions as WANTING TO BE MAKING BABIES with other human beings while hanging around with JESUS CHRIST THE LORD’S SON in HIS parents’ basement complex, getting high on sniffing-glue and smoking-dope. Nor would HE ever allow us to have knowledge of such a creature getting cought MAKING LOVE in sleazy dives, waiting in the V.I.P. lines all day long just to “do it” with tv stars in the first place. Neither one as this could ever be considered an ANGEL if they CONSENTED to be condemned to torment by FREEDOM-FRIES (Frylock Plush With Meatwad) like nearly every other one of the SINNERS in these sad times. Mr. Herzog needs to go down to his BIBLE more, the instant he hears of such. Such as he and Mr. Wenders should get out their iphones and do a Google search for HELL-AMERICAN, before they get up in the morning and start “doing it” together in the back of their CHURCH again while reading HIS impure thoughts, in order to be finding out what the TRUTH IS. This is a typical Hollywood bloodslaughter BLASPHEMY (The Teachings of Emanuel Swedenborg: Vol III: Last Judgment).

  4. This is one of the most overestimated films I have ever seen. It is so slow and uncertain that directors such as Tarkovskij and Bergman feels almost obvious in their filmmaking. Avoid this unless you have a hard time time sleeping.

  5. This movie is laughable bad. Folks, it’s a German fantasy, wow, doesn’t get any better than that!! This is a film for Americans who long to be a European. Oh, the angst, oh the longing for my love. Why are we alive, why do I (Wim Winders) exist?—– to make dull films I suppose, what does mankind mean, what is it all about, what is nirvana——oh, grabbing a beer and watching the NFL for most of us poor Amis. Or thinking about lesbian sex! This type film is for the Woody Allen crowd, you know, the eurotrash lovers who hate all American films. Go see a good foreign film, like Seven Samauri, The Hidden Fortress, or Manon of the Spring.

    Be honest now. What Angel film would you rather watch: ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ with Jimmy Stuart, or ‘Wings of Desire.’ Come on now, be honest.——-There I thought so.
