The sky over Wenders' war-scarred Berlin is full of gentle, trenchcoated angels who listen to the tortured thoughts of mortals and try to comfort them. One, Damiel, (Bruno Ganz) wishes to become mortal after falling in love with a beautiful trapeze artist, Marian. Peter Falk, as himself, assists in the transformation by explaining the simple joys of a human experience.
Maybe best director in a golden globe (biggest bribe) way. 2 angels hang around unfortunate individuals during the second world war. Some scenes shot in colour most in black and white. Feels like an arty film to be watched having taken industrial amounts of mood altering drugs. Watched sober it is very boring and totally pointless.
