city of angels

Wings of Desire is, by far, one of my favorite films ever. The inspiration for the Nicolas Cage/Meg Ryan hit, City of Angels, it is infinitely better. The concept of longing for life and love is the same, but other than that, it hardly bears any resemblance to the original. Wings of Desire is a more visually stunning film, alternating between black & white and color. It's quieter, subtler, deeper. I don't think I can recommend it enough...

Anyway. Back on track. I recently came across this gorgeous purple-tinged Wings of Desire/City of Angels-inspired photo spread.
