Wim Wenders’ masterpiece? Wings of Desire is one of cinema’s loveliest symphonies, a poignant fantasy and a tapestry of sounds and images (mixing color with black & white) that forever made Wenders’ name synonymous with film art.

Der Himmel über Berlin Regie Wim Wenders
Once upon a time, half the city of Berlin was a land-locked island. Wim Wenders’s most enduring and atmospheric film, Wings of Desire, first released here 30 years ago, may be the movie that most powerfully evokes the mood of Cold War Berlin (at least on the western side of the Wall).

In the film’s second half, its aesthetic switches from black-and-white contemplation to color fantasy as one angel (again Wenders’ majestically lumpen leading man Ganz) gives up his wings to come to earth and find love with a beautiful trapeze artist. Has a movie ever offered a plainer, more joyous affirmation of earthly wonder than Peter Falk and a cup of hot coffee on a cold day?

With two poignant and enjoyable cameos—Peter Falk and Nick Cave both portray themselves—Wenders’s ethereal masterpiece dazzles along the lines of fantasy and reality.
