Kings of the Road (aka In The Course of Time) - The final part of Wim Wenders’ loose trilogy of road movies (following on from Alice in the Cities and Wrong Move), Kings of the Road is an acute study of life in post-war Germany.

  • German DD2.0 Stereo and DD5.1 Surround with optional English subtitles

Wings of Desire - Described as Wim Wenders’ most metaphysical work, Wings of Desire tells the story of a guardian angel who desires nothing more than to be human.
