Almost perfect. Why I haven't heard of this film before is anybody's guess? Anyone else seen it?
was pleased with the amount of Nick Cave
I didn't like it as much as other Wenders films. I think I thought it was going to be really ethereal and poetic, but it's actually got it's feet in the city rather than head in the clouds.
It is the film i love the most.
My No 1 favourate film.
I would say it has stretched to have both its head in the clouds and its feet on earth.....just as it is stretched between the fantasy on the film and the reality of songs, and the reality of the identity of the other 'fallen angel'.
...the sequel 'Faraway So Close' is worth checking out too.
.. but If I was pushed to make an answer I would say Wings of Desire is it.
but it wouldn't have been half as beautiful without the hour and a half before which exhibits the longing and the want without one ounce of overstatement
