Wim Wenders returns to Germany with a sublimely beautiful, deeply romantic film for our times. (Review of Original Release) Full Review

Wings is a soaring vision that appeals to the senses and the spirit. (Review of Original Release) Full Review

The New York Times
Startlingly original at first, Wings of Desir' is in the end damagingly overloaded. The excesses of language, the ceaseless camera movement, the unyielding whimsy have the ultimate effect of wearing the audience down. (Review of Original Release) Full Review
Jonathan Rosenbaum
Chicago Reader
The conceit gets a little out of hand after one of the angels falls in love with the trapeze artist and decides to become human; but prior to this, Wings of Desire is one of Wenders's most stunning achievements. Full Review

The Onion A.V. Club
Though Wings Of Desire has a classic look, its mood and style is New Wave in every sense of the term. The synthesis of deep thought, leisurely pacing, and stunning visuals is in the spirit of work by the young European filmmakers of the '60s and '70s. (Reviewed in 2003 for DVD Release) Full Review
