A good movie

It is definitely one of the movies that I absolutely need to re-watch at some point. Still, I remember very well the first time I saw the damned thing. Indeed, at some point, I saw ‘Paris, Texas’, I was completely blown away by the whole thing and it immediately became one of the best movies I had ever seen.  With this in mind, I was really eager to check Wim Wenders’s follow-up and since i... read more

I saw this film a few years ago and at the time hadn't seen any Wenders films. But right from the start I knew it was going to be something totally different. The reason I wanted to see it in the first place was my interest in the history of the Berlin Wall.

This Wim Wenders film centers around the story of two angels wandering in a mixture of post-war and modern Berlin. Invisible to humans, they nevertheless give their help and comfort to all the lonely and depressed souls they meet. Finally, after many centuries, one of the angels becomes unhappy with his immortal state and wishes to become human in order to experience the joys of everyday life. He meets a circus acrobat and finds in her the fufillment of all his mortal desires. He also discovers that he is not alone in making this cross over, and that a purely spiritual experience is not enough to satisfy anyone.

" Date: 3/31/2019 Viewed: Blu-Ray First viewing Note: This movie is fantastic and I love every bit of this movie. I never fully saw this movie until now. The characters, the story, and the camera work are really good. The movie has a slow start, but it starts to kick off after 15 minutes into the movie. I would love to see this movie again soon. I highly recommend this movie! "

Miika's Movie Diary - 2018 (222 movies items)

"22.1, Yle Areena Ihmisiä tarkkailevat enkelit huomaavat elämän merkityksellisyyden ja sen pienet ilot, joita me helposti pidetään itsestäänselvyyksinä. Ajaton, runollisesti kerrottu kaunis ja ajatuksia herättävä elokuva, jonka pariin tulen varmasti palaamaan vielä uudestaan."
