Based on poems by Rilke and cowritten by longtime Wenders’ collaborator Peter Handke, Wings of Desire is set in a shimmering, otherworldly Berlin. An angel (Ganz) grown tired of his abstract, weightless existence, wishes to experience earthly pleasures in this intensely romantic love story, city symphony, and philosophical tone poem.
“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. And it forever made the name Wim Wenders synonymous with film art.” (Janus Films)
