Who Directed Wings Of Desire? (SOLVED!)

This film is filled with elegy, reverie and meditation. It doesn’t rush headlong into plot, but has the patience of its angels. This suggests what it might be like to not only see all of it, but also participate in its creation. We follow two angels: Damiel (Bruno Ganz) and Cassiel (Otto Sander) 😊 They listen to the thoughts of an old Holocaust victim, and of parents worried about their son, and of the passengers on trams and the people in the streets; it’s like turning the dial and hearing snatches of many radio programs 😎 They take notes on the hooker hoping to get enough money for a trip south and the circus aerialist fearing she will be crushed because it’s the night before the full moon 😎
Don’t forget that the film’s original title is Der Himmel über Berlin – The Sky or Heavens over Berlin – and that the’s having project begun as an investigation into Germany’s then-divided city. It is true that the angels of Berlin were brought in only as an afterthought. Perhaps acknowledging the tradition of early ‘city symphony’ silent films like Dziga Vertov’s Man with a Movie Camera (1929) or even Walter Ruttmann’s Berlin, Symphony of a City (1927), Wings of Desire is also in part a wonderful time capsule of wintery, pre-unification Berlin. You will be amazed at the wide shots and the roving aerial footage. City’s desolate no-man’s-land expanses bound by the ever-present Wall.

An analysis by criterionchannel.com Additional information is available. WINGS OF DESIRE is one of cinema’s loveliest city symphonies. Bruno Ganz is Damiel, an angel perched atop buildings high over Berlin who can hear the thoughts—fears, hopes, dreams—of all the people living below. He falls for a trapeze artist and is ready to sacrifice his immortality to return to the earth with her. The stunning, layered tapestry of images and sounds, created in black and white by Henri Alekan and colorized by him, was made just before the Berlin wall fell. This film has made Wim Wenders’ name synonymous with movie art for a long time. Modified by Donna Ruiz, Changshu (China), June 23, 2021

While the angels can move around freely, their participation in human life is restricted. They can’t be seen and cannot smell, taste, or feel anything. Bruno Ganz played Damiel. After feeling disconnected, Damiel falls for Marion, the struggling circus trapeze performer, and craves human interaction. It is amazing to see how Wenders portrays human feelings. Wenders switches from black and white to colors inspired by Powell and Pressburger’s A Matter of Life and Death, which was clearly an influence on the film.
