The inspiration for City of Angels and the film which earned Wim Wenders the Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival, Wings of Desire is a life-affirming hymn to a divided Berlin. Bruno Ganz stars as Damiel, a lonely, trenchcoated angel who watches over the city, silently comforting its citizens in their hour of need. But when he is captivated by a beautiful French trapeze artist, Damiel decides to trade his gentle, angelic life for the torturous emotions of the secular world. With his divine position in jeopardy, he must choose to either give up love, or lose his eternal wings forever.
