“Wings of Desire”
(Wim Wenders, W. Germany/France, 1987)
Damiel and Cassiel are two angels who have existed before humankind, wandering around West Berlin, observing and preserving life, and sometimes trying to provide comfort to the troubled, though not always successfully. Among those observed are: the cast and crew of a movie–a detective story set in WWII Nazi Germany–which include a sensitive and perceptive Peter Falk; an elderly man named Homer looking for eternal peace; and the troupe of a financially failing circus.
