In weiter Ferne, so nah! (Faraway, so close!) is the sequel to Wim Wender’s Der Himmel über Berlin, which we screened last quarter.  Six years after the events of the first film, Damiel a “fallen” angel is living with his French wife and their daughter in a reunified Berlin. Cassiel, the former companion angel to Damiel, now contemplates a mortal existence for himself but he will have to overcome time itself to secure his mortality. Bruno Ganz, Otto Sander and Peter Falk, who reprise their roles, are joined by Nastassja Kinski, Willem Defoe and a very special guest, Mikhail Gorbachev.
