    Liked it so much!

    Especially (non-)color effect and acting of main character.
    And some quotes really boomed the mind.

    Wings of Desire reminded me a lot of Tarkovsky's Andrei Rublev (1966) and Bergman's The Seventh Seal (1957) but, mostly, it reminded me of A Matter of Life and Death (1946).

    It's an absolutely incredible film. I can see why it's on the Spiritually Significant list.
