This is a beautiful poetic film, with exquisite cinematography in both black-and-white and color. The performances by Ganz, Sander and Dommartin are amazing. The best performance, however, comes from Peter Falk, as an American actor in Berlin, who knows of the angel's existence and befriends Ganz, when Ganz becomes human. Wenders has dedicated this film to famed directors (and "Fallen Angels") Yasujiro Ozu, Andrei Tarkovsky and Francois Truffaut. It's an affectionate homage to these directors and the art of filmaking. You could say it's Wenders' 8 1/2.
