Der Himmel über Berlin

Wim Wenders / DE, FR, 1987 / 128 min.

Two angels descend into the streets of Berlin to observe the population. When one of them falls in love with a girl, the monochrome film shifts to colour. Wenders touched the hearts of many cinema goers with this magical, spiritual tale.

There is a striking similarity with the British film A Matter of Life and Death, shown later this month at Eye. Screened in a new digital restoration (4K).

Made possible with participation from the Goethe Institut.
