Wings of Desire 4K 06/03/23
Ethereal creatures walk among us! Wim Wenders’ contemplative utopia proposes other-dimensional Angels that comfort and watch over the insecure and fearful. Angel First Class Bruno Ganz envies living humans and falls in love with the aerial ballerina Solveig Dommartin. To experience life and love firsthand he opts to cast off his exalted status and become mortal. Gloomy Berlin is the locale for unseen miracles amid ordinary human drama; Wenders’ inspired direction and the expressionist camera of Henri Alekan create a world of magic in a city divided by an oppressive wall. With Otto Sander and Peter Falk, the modern masterpiece is even more mesmerizing in 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
