One of Wenders’ most beloved and enduring films, this visually striking fantasy explores one of the big mythological what-ifs: can an angel become human? Watching over West Berlin, Otto Sander and Bruno Ganz edge closer to reality, with the latter entranced by trapeze artist Solveig Dommartin and befriended by the star of a movie unit—Peter Falk, gifted by Wenders with added dimensions for a self-portrait.
