Wings of Desire

In Wings of Desire, director Wim Wenders’ most metaphysical work, a guardian angel desires nothing more than to be human.

Every day, Dammiel listens to the thoughts of mortals who play their lives out on the streets of West Berlin. He finds himself entranced by a trapeze artist whose eloquent expression of her doubts and fears makes him yearn for a life where he can feel happiness and love.
