We all want something in this life, a burning desire for more or what we cannot have. Even someone who has everything still longs for more. Much like, in the movie “Wings of Desire”. Therefore it came as no surprise when the main character Damiel, an angel, longs to be human, in order to be with the mortal women he falls in love with. Though this movie sounds like it has great potential, do not be conned into thinking it’s something worth seeing. The story line is amusing, but overall it is two and a half hours of confusion and disappointment.

A beautiful film that uses visual imagery and symbolism to tell the story of an angel fallen from heaven. There are a lot of literary allusions, creative film-making devices, and dealings with spiritual themes. I would call it a film purely for a thinking audience, as the barebones plot and slow pace might be frustrating, but if you look deeper into the nuances of the film and take time to think about it, I think you will be more satisfied.

If you liked City of Angels, you probably won't like this movie, because this was the original film and was done well, unlike City of Angels. This film floats about leaving things unexplained that don't need explanation. Bruno Ganz is not in enough movies, or at least not in enough that get shown in America.

I know this is supposed to be a masterpiece, but it really didn't do anything for me until the last 45 minutes. But, oh, those 45 minutes! So if you get bogged down watching this and wonder whether to quit, keep going. It's worth it.

This film is a breath-taking work of art. The acting (and the chemistry between Ganz & Dommartin, two angels/friends who have seen it all from Earth's beginning), the cinematography - the use of black and white in the Angel's "realm", and color in ours (symbolizing the richness and beauty we get to experience as humans) - Amazing. The poetic writing revealing the thoughts of Berlin's citizens is fascinating...as is the main character's conflict. Instantly made my list of all time favorites, and pushed me to explore all of Wim Wender's work.

Unfortunately, I didn't really "get" this movie.
