    An angel in Berlin decides to become human after falling in love with a mortal. One of Wim Wenders' biggest commercial successes and arguably his most accessible film to date Wings of Desire (aka: Der Himmel uber Berlin) centres around two trench-coated angels Damiel (Bruno Ganz) and Cassiel (Otto Sander) wandering the streets of post-war pre-unification Berlin. Invisible to humans they listen to the tortured thoughts of the mortals occasionally dispensing heavenly solace to those in need. An encounter with a beautiful circus trapeze artist Marion (Solveig Dommartin) sees Damiel falling in love and longing to give up his immortal state in order to experience the simple joys of human experience. Damiel is assisted in his transformation by an American actor (Peter Falk) filming on location in the city himself a former angel who has traded in his wings for a mortal existence. Scripted by Wenders and respected German playwright and novelist Peter Handke the film is impeccably shot by legendary cinematographer Henri Alekan (Jean Cocteau's cameraman on La belle et la bete) blossoming from the monochrome perspective of the angels to colour following Damiel's eventual transmutation. As ever with Wenders music plays an important part and the film features rare on-screen performances by the bands Crime And The City Solution and Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds. Multi-award winning (including the Best Director prize at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival) and hugely acclaimed Wings Of Desire is a delightfully poetic celebration of the human condition. It famously inspired Brad Silberling's 1998 hit film City of Angels starring Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan. In 1993 Wenders reunited with Ganz Sander Dommartin and Falk along with Nastassja Kinski and Willem Dafoe for a sequel Faraway So Close!.

    Theo Angelopoulos is Greece's most celebrated filmmaker and has been acclaimed by British critics Derek Malcolm and David Thompson as one of the world s greatest living directors. His body of work examines the history of modern Greece from a social and political perspective. The Suspended Step of the Stork (1991) explores the ideology of borders and national identity. While visiting a refugee camp on the Greek-Albanian border, television reporter Alexandre (Gregory Patrikareas) becomes convinced that an old man he meets there (Marcello Mastroianni) is an eminent Greek politician who mysteriously disappeared several years before. But when he returns to Athens to report the news to the politician's 'widow' (Jeanne Moreau), Alexandre realises that the question of identity and belonging is not as straightforward as he believed.Harvey Keitel stars in Ulysses' Gaze (1995) as a Greek filmmaker journeying across the Balkans to return home after 35 years, confronting various demons from his past along the way.In Eternity and a Day (1998), ailing Greek poet Alexander (Bruno Ganz) is preparing to put his affairs in order, resigned to the fact that he is not long for this world. After a visit to his daughter, however, Alexander finds himself thinking of his late wife, remembering happier times. When he encounters a small boy (Ahellis Skevis) who has been abducted by an illegal adoption ring, Alexander determines to rescue the child and return him to his home. En route he rediscovers his zest both for writing and life itself, making an inspiring journey of self-discovery in which past and present are intertwined. The Weeping Meadow (2004) is the first film in Angelopoulos' loosely-connected 'Dust of Time' trilogy. The film traces the childhood love affair of Spyros (Vasilis Kolovos) and Eleni (Alexandra Aidini), two children from Odessa who grow up in a refugee encampment near Thessaloniki in the 1920 and 30s. As they grow up together, the two fall in love - but war is looming and difficult times lie ahead. The second film in the trilogy, The Dust of Time (2008), continues the love story of Spyros and Eleni (played in this instalment by Michel Piccoli and Irne Jacob). Willem Dafoe stars as A, the couple's son, an American-born filmmaker who sets out to make an autobiographical film charting his life story from the day he was born in 1953 until the present day. Sifting through long-buried memories, A drifts into a dream-like narrative that unfolds in the former Soviet Union, the Austrian-Hungarian borders, Italy and New York, and takes in historical events from Stalin's death to Nixon's resignation and the fall of the Greek junta.
