How to fall in love
I heard the movie way before I ever saw it. An unusual approach for such a visual medium. I was an art student at the time and listened to the soundtrack when I painted. The opening cello just drew me in. Then I got the chance to see it! There is such a connection between the music and the action of the movie that I had an immediate connection. The angels were portrayed with such real sympathy that you understood their sadness with the despair that the humans they watch endure daily. then there is the love story between the angel and the trapeze artist. He watches her and falls in love. He looses her when he gives up his wings. the there is one of the best romantic scenes in cinema when he finds her and tells her of his feelings. It is as if she already knew. I never knew how romantic the german language was. This scene will change minds. All this and Peter Falk too! What more can a movie do? The black and white aspect to movie just adds a lot of atmosphere and reminds you of the ever presence of the wall. While I have not watched the movie many times it is one of the movies that I can recall scenes at a moments thought. It just stays with you like Blade Runner or the Red Balloon. You never forget.
