Perched up on some ledge somewhere was Bruno Ganz, who director Wim Wenders truly believed in. It is touching to see that faith in action throughout Wings of Desire, a fine collaboration between two fine artists. Wings of Desire marks itself as a loosely structured piece, filing away the lives encountered in glimmers at the most. Ganz portrays the great observer, an angel known as Damiel, some entity that can feel, but only for others. It seems a far cry away from the world of worries when life and death pass through it all, and it’s both terrifying and mystifying as Ganz makes his way through those lives, desiring it all the more.
