About the program

Presented by: Palace of Arts

„The heroes of my story are angels. Unemployed guardian angels, hanging around Berlin since the end of the war, left behind there by God. Then one fine day, one of the angels falls in love. He meets a trapeze artist who performs in the circus with angel wings on her costume. The angel finds this extremely funny, and is very attracted to the girl. But in order to be able to fall in love with her, he must become mortal like every earthly creature. He faces a serious decision…” (Wim Wenders)

Set in the still divided Berlin of the mid-1980s, this German-French film won the Best Director award in Cannes and would become a trend-setting work of the decade.

The screening (with Hungarian subtitles) is made possible with the support of the Goethe Institute.
