Wings of Desire - Der Himmel Über Berlin

Wings of Desire (1987)

The humour is fairly broad and the film studiously avoids the more unpleasant realities of living in a foreign country, but one of its most intriguing aspects is the way it encompasses the history of guest workers through a judicious use of archive footage.

KRAFTWERK ("power station") are a German electronic music band, whose signature sound combines driving, repetitive rhythms with catchy melodies, mainly following a Western Classical style of harmony, with a minimalistic and strictly electronic instrumentation. The group's simplified lyrics are at times sung through a vocoder or generated by computer-speech software. Kraftwerk were one of the first groups to popularize electronic music and are considered pioneers in the field.
