Plays Directory : Wings of Desire

The information below is intended to give you a brief guide to the show and highlight some of the other The Mandy Network members who have also been involved in this show.

  • Author
    Wim Wenders
  • Overview
    A German romantic fantasy film. Its original German title is Der Himmel über Berlin, which can be translated as The Sky over Berlin or Heaven over Berlin because in German the same word "Himmel" is used for both "heaven" and "sky". Rainer Maria Rilke's poetry partially inspired the movie; Wenders claimed angels seemed to dwell in Rilke's poetry. The director also employed Peter Handke, who wrote much of the dialogue, the poetic narrations, and the film's recurring poem "Song of Childhood." The film was followed by a sequel, Faraway, So Close! In 1998, an American remake called City of Angels was made.
