Few films are so rich, so intriguing, or so ambitious - a romantic delight
Trenchcoated angels Damiel and Cassiel watch over a divided Berlin, as they have done for centuries. Every day Damiel, (Bruno Ganz) listens silently to the thoughts of mortals who play out their lives on the streets of West Berlin. Then he finds himself entranced by a young trapeze artist (Solveig Dommartin) whose eloquent expression of her doubts and fears makes him yearn for a human life where he too can feel happiness and love.
