In college, I took a film studies class, and we watched the beautiful German film "Wings of Desire" by Wim Wenders. There was a bad American remake called “CIty of Angels.” Watch the German. Much better. Set at the height of the Cold War just before the fall of the Berlin Wall, “Wings of Desire” was all about division and barriers. It was a beautiful and fantastical story of an angel who falls in love with a woman in Berlin, and must choose what he wants most. Eternity or mortality. When he chooses to love that one he has become smitten with, he stops being an angel.
