Session Times



On the streets of West Berlin, two immortal angels named Damiel (Bruno Ganz) and Cassiel (Otto Sander) wander the city unseen by humans, listening to the thoughts of its inhabitants and comforting those who need it. Damiel comes across a profoundly lonely circus trapeze artist named Marion and begins to fall in love with her. He longs for the authenticity and finite nature of human experience; for the taste of food and the touch of a loved one. If he decides to become a human mortal however, there is no guarantee that Marion will return his affections. And there's no turning back.

Why You Should See This Film

Wistfully poetic and deeply philosophical, Wings of Desire is a cinematic experience like no other. Beautifully shot by 77-year-old cinematographer Henri Alekan (Jean Cocteau's La Belle et la Bête), this film is a deeply emotional reflection on Berlin’s past, present and uncertain future. It's little wonder that director Wim Wenders thanks filmmakers Yasujiro Ozu, François Truffaut and Andrej Tarkovsky in the film's closing credits.
