Wings of Desire The movie is about two angels, Damiel and Cassiel, who come from heaven to watch over people and can hear the inner voices of them. As they see them in their apartments, moving on the streets, subways and in a library. The two angels are dressed like normal people and are only seen by the camera and children. Damiel and Cassiel's world ...view middle of the document...

But as the audience watches how Damiel moves about, you notice a couple of color scenes. At first, I never thought about it. But the more I saw short colored scenes, I wondered why? The first scene that stuck out in my mind was when Damiel was watching and listening to Marion in her trailer. As he watched her undress and put on a robe she was in color. I interpreted this as Damiel having a desire to feel how she feels or be there with her. Only Damiel sees the color. He wants to know what it feels like to smell, taste, and be apart of the world. He wants to be apart of history. So, seeing colors is opening his eyes to the real world. You figure that out because he becomes mortal and he no longer sees black and white. As Damiel learns the different colors, it is during the day. Every time you see colors they are very distinct and bright. To me, Damiel is very happy living in and being apart of history, with Marion. It's like he's living in a fairy tale that lives happily ever after in a colorful world.
