Playing June 19 and 20, 2011
Wings of Desire
Dir. Wim Wenders Germany 1987
Wenders' story of angels who return to Earth is a poetic, metaphysical and spiritual journey, as well as an affirmation of romantic love. Bruno Ganz plays an angel who wants to become mortal after falling in love with a circus trapeze artist (played by the luminous Solveig Dommartin) in Berlin. Peter Falk plays himself in a revealing and delightful role. Co-written with Peter Handke, it was inspired by Wenders' love of Rilke. It contains sumptuous black and white photography, courtesy of the legendary cinematographer Henri Alekan. (subtitled;130m)
