Wings of Desire

I can't believe I waited this long to see this perfectly constructed, meditative, poetic film, and on the other hand, I'm afraid I might not have had the generousity and patience to appreciate it if I had seen it too early. Two angels understand what's best about being human profoundly more than humans can, but through the eyes of the film and the poetry of the dialogue, we're invited to experience some of the transcendence that comes from recognizing the NOW that surrounds us.
