Product Description

From Oscar®-nominated* writer/director Wim Wenders (Buena Vista Social Club) comes this "exhilarating" (Vanity Fair) and life-affirming tale that won him the 1987 Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival and inspired City of Angels. Co-written with Peter Handke, this "enchanting" (The New York Times) film about the joy of life is "that rare thing a work of true originality" (Newsweek)! Damiel (Bruno Ganz) is a lonely angel who roams the streets of Berlin providing comfort to mortals in need. But when he is drawn into the life of a beautifuland troubledtrapeze artist, he experiences love for the first time and does everything in his power to be seen, heard and felt by her. Jeopardizing his divine position, Damiel is faced with a most difficult decision: either give up love or lose his eternal wings forever! *1999: Documentary Feature, Buena Vista Social Club

Additional Features

This Special Edition illustrates how time to reflect can create better DVD extras. Looking back 16 years after his film debuted in 1987, director Wim Wenders examines it with new eyes. The movie--largely unscripted, we learn--is a love letter to Berlin, a town in flux (it was shot before "the Wall" fell). Wender's dry, insightful commentary takes us through the genesis of the film and the importance of the real-world settings, many of which no longer exist. Peter Falk is also on the commentary track and, like his presence in the film, offers a punch of earnest emotion and humor. Much of the 45-minute featurette repeats Wenders's commentary points. Many of the key talents are interviewed and director Brad Silverberg takes on a role as the film's fan (he later made the Americanization, City of Angels). There's some 20 minutes of deleted scenes (polished and unpolished) including material that was reshot for the sequel. The packed disc includes an offbeat trailer or two along with a gorgeous transfer of the remarkable film. --Doug Thomas
