Wim Wenders' poetic masterpiece from 1980's Berlin, just before the fall of the wall.
Won the best director award for Wenders at Cannes in 1987 and remade into city of angels in 1998. Wenders's war scarred Berlin has a sky that was gentle, filled with angels who listen to the sorrows of mortals and help them. One angel, falling in love with a trapeze artist, wants to become mortal. Peter Falk stars as himself helping with the transformation.
