Wings of Desire is a 1987 West German/French film directed by Wim Wenders. Peter Falk is part of the cast. I looked for this film for a long time but never saw it free on anything I had access to and never wanted to pay the going rate for a DVD. I watched it on HBO Max.
Roger Ebert has it on his Great Movies list. Rotten Tomatoes has a critics consensus score of 98%.
