I totally understand why others find this film so powerful and moving. Unfortunately, it doesn't do the same for me.

I can't say I loved this film, but I can't say I disliked it either... It's difficult to categorize. It's difficult to put in a box. Very unique film. Unlike anything I've ever seen. Very lyrical and poetic. I would call it artwork.

Liked it so much!

Especially (non-)color effect and acting of main character.
And some quotes really boomed the mind.

"Boy, girl, man, woman? Man? Yeah . . ." Columbo was amazing in this movie. Truly astonishing.

Wings of Desire reminded me a lot of Tarkovsky's Andrei Rublev (1966) and Bergman's The Seventh Seal (1957) but, mostly, it reminded me of A Matter of Life and Death (1946).

It's an absolutely incredible film. I can see why it's on the Spiritually Significant list.

Amazing movie. Great use of the black and white camara. Almost like some religious experience. Even for an nog religious person like me.

I saw Wim Wenders' Wings of Desire (or Les ailes du désir, as we called it) in a film history course at university, and it blew my mind, especially its maverick use of Peter Falk as himself, and it still blows my mind today. Wenders creates an unseen world of angels, some of them tired of an eternal existence and wishing for a human life, and in that premise is a celebration of all that is human, from rubbing your hands to warm them up to realizing something is the color red to loving a woman. The angels are here to give hope, and their own perspective can only revel in the big and small things that make life worth living, even when we think it is not. Oh did I say loving a woman? Yes, there's a woman played by Solveig Dommartin who learned the trapeze and did all her own routines, no doubles (impressive), for the movie, but while Bruno Ganz' Damiel is drawn to her, it's only as part of a whole. Part of a complete life, not the be-all and end-all. He would have been content just to hold an apple in his hand and be hit by a truck. Life for its own sake as something precious. Obviously, the American version, City of Angels, is just gonna turn this into a Meg Ryan romcom, but the original is more meditative, more universal, and more shocking. And it kind of has to take place in Berlin in the 80s, y'know? It's not just that Wenders is German, but the Wall is a perfect location to set that transition between one existence and another.

Beautiful, but definitely not for viewers with short attention spans.
