1998 Certificate: 12


Romantic fantasy in which Nicolas Cage's maverick angel Seth spots heart surgeon Maggie (Meg Ryan) as he hovers over Los Angeles. Taking the highly unconventional step of making himself visible, he finds himself falling in love and considers renouncing his immortality to be with her - an angel's ultimate act of love. A rose-tinted, up-tempo take on Wim Wenders' far darker original, the Berlin-set Wings of Desire in 1987.
