    • Synopsis
    • Set in Berlin, guardian angels in long overcoats watch over human beings, not able to change the course of events but to influence, bring hope.
      We follow two angels: Damiel (Bruno Ganz) and Cassiel (Otto Sander). They serenely listen to the thoughts of an old Holocaust victim, and of parents worried about their son, and of the passengers on trams and the people in the streets… then Damiel falls in love with a trapeze artist and decides he wants to become human, with all the sensuality and emotional pain that goes with it.
