wings of desire, libraries, nick cave & angels
One of my favorite films from the 80s is Wim Wender's Wings of Desire (for many reasons), but one of them is because part of the movie takes place in the Staatsbiblioteck (State Library) in Berlin. I loved the premise of angels in black & white wandering around listening to our thoughts.
Another reason I love this movie is that Nick Cave performs "Eternity" in it and did you know that while he was in Berlin he was inspired to write his own novel that he stayed in germany for three years to complete and that it too has angels in it's title...
