  2. caro's rating of the film Wings of Hope

    Although the story of survival is very interesting to explore, and you cannot be but impressed by Juliane, I was a bit disappointed by this Herzog documentary. I think it's mainly due to this distance that the main character keeps towards her experience, and that she inevitably creates with the viewers. NB: If you plan on traveling to Peru or South America, I have an advice for you: stay away from this movie ;)

  3. fearraigh's rating of the film Wings of Hope

    Where "TV movie" is often a slight when talking about other directors, with Herzog, it is the vehicle for some of his most fascinating work. There is a palpably eerie pall hanging over Wings of Hope and Juliane Koepcke's strangely matter-of-fact recounting of her ordeal makes it all the more haunting. A further example of how Herzog's oeuvre richly propagates itself.

  4. Ma-rewind's rating of the film Wings of Hope

    Parce que Herzog sera toujours Herzog, avec son style inimitable, sa direction d'acteurs à la limite de l'acceptable et son goût pour les destins singuliers...

  6. philippe.malapert's rating of the film Wings of Hope

    Quelle femme ! Que d’espoir, quand tout semble perdu. Que la langue allemande est belle

  7. Fred Gasimov's rating of the film Wings of Hope

    Incredible as always. The last shot with her at the end of the film is just a master piece. Great Herzog!

  8. Lex Lucas's rating of the film Wings of Hope

    A similar story of survival told through testimony as Little Dieter needs to fly. Nothing new under Herzog's sun. Pilgrimage, survival, legacy, nature and going back in horrifying memories.

  9. Rafael Zen's rating of the film Wings of Hope

    Juliane and Herzog are so stiff it's almost impossible to care. Besides that, it's an intriguing film about the almost death of Herzog. What a shame it didn't go deep enough on the psychological mess the crash must have caused. A ok doc to spend an hour with, but if the director have gone far inside Juliane as he did inside the jungle, we - the viewers - would have been taken somewhere else.

  10. Nachtreich's rating of the film Wings of Hope

  11. cabrapreta's rating of the film Wings of Hope

    Somewhat disappointing for such a great story, but hey, it's Herzog.

  12. Jim Pan Z's rating of the film Wings of Hope

    Sort of a side product of Fitzcarraldo. Adds to the myth of the movie and very good on its own terms.

  13. Jason Callen's rating of the film Wings of Hope

    Short but solid doc from Herzog. The fact that he could have been on the flight makes it particularly compelling.
