Wings of Desire

Wings of Desire Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Damiel is an angel perched atop buildings high over Berlin who can hear the thoughts—fears, hopes, and dreams—of all the people living below. But when he falls in love with a beautiful trapeze artist, he is willing to give up his immortality to come back to earth to be with her.

For more about Wings of Desire and the Wings of Desire Blu-ray release, see Wings of Desire Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Wings of Desire Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.67:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Wim Wenders' Wings of Desire arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Axiom Films.

This is a very strong high-definition transfer, likely sourced from the same element Criterion used for their North American Blu-ray release of Wim Wenders' award-winning film. There are, however, some minor differences between the two releases, which I would like to quickly address.

Both releases look very strong when blown through a digital projector and certainly represent enormous upgrades over previous SDVD releases of the film. Fine object detail is pleasing, clarity very good and contrast levels convincing on both. Similar to the Criterion release, the Axiom release is also free of large flecks, debris, cuts, or splices. Here, edge-enhancement and macroblocking are again not a serious issue of concern.

There are certain scenes, however, that look slightly more convincing on the Criterion release. For example, at 1h.10min., where we see the dancer contemplating life, contrast is just a tiny bit better on the Criterion release. On the UK release, the right upper corner is darker, even softer looking. Another good example is at 1h.20min. - at the night club (see capture #4) - where the face of the man standing next to the dancer is almost impossible to see. On the Criterion release, you could clearly see his face. With other words, even though both distributors obviously had access to the same element, it appears that Criterion actually did some very careful fine-tuning, which as far as I am concerned gives their release an edge over Axiom's release. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray release. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Wings of Desire Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and LPCM 2.0. For the record, Axiom have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

There are no serious technical flaws with the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. The dialog is clean and easy to follow and the lovely soundtrack very effective. I also did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings. Additionally, the Criterion Blu-ray release of Wings of Desire did not include a second audio track. This one does, but I don't think that it actually adds anything of substance when compared to the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. Finally, I actually found the white English subtitles to be a tad too big, particularly when viewing the film projected on a large screen.
