New 4K Restoration!

1987, Janus Films, 127 min, West Germany, Dir: Wim Wenders

Wim Wenders’ most fully realized cinematic vision follows Damiel (Bruno Ganz), an angel having pangs of longing as he observes the lives of mortals in Berlin, specifically the beautiful, ethereal trapeze artist Marion (Solveig Dommartin). Peter Falk essentially plays himself, a philosophical film and TV star (often addressed as "Columbo" by other characters!), who is making a movie in Germany and is one of the few people who can sense the presence of the invisible celestial spirits. An achingly beautiful and poetic meditation on life and what it means to be a human being, WINGS OF DESIRE won the 1987 Best Director award at Cannes. In German with English subtitles.

In German, English and French with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP. New 4K restoration with 5.1 sound mix provided by the Wim Wenders Foundation and supervised by Wim and Donata Wenders. Funding provided by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and the FFA, and by the French CNC.
