Wings of Desire at 20



It's hard to believe that Wim Wenders' masterpiece is 20 years old. The film still moves me like no other, mainly because it's pure poetry. From the script to the visuals of a still-divided Berlin, Wenders created a love poem to his city. If you have never seen Der Himmel Uber Berlin, as it's titled in Germany, do yourself a favor and put it at the top of your list. For more about the film, visit Wenders' site at this link.

Its a great movie. I cannot believe they remade this as that horrible shitty terrible horrible shitty City of Angels with Meg Ryan.

This is one of Annie's and Brenda's favorite films. They introduced it to me.

I remember when I first saw this back in 1987. I can't believe it's been 20 years either. My high school reunion is next year, which boggles my mind.
