Faraway, So Close!

In weiter Ferne, so nah!

Directed by Wim Wenders
Germany, 1993
Drama, Fantasy


This sequel to Wenders’ Wings of Desire follows again a group of angels who look longingly upon the life of humans. Made six years later, the Berlin of the sequel is a very different place: unified in name but overrun with crime, corruption, and—in what turns out to be a key theme here—Americans.
