Ad angel

Anyone spotted the new Vision Express – you’re eyes need to be watched over – advert shamelessly cribbing from Wim Wender’s beautiful Wings of Desire and Faraway, So Close? Complete with opticians as the invisible angels. Hmmm. Well, it’s not as bad as the awful Hollywood remake with Nicholas Cage, City of Angels. Take my word for it – ignore that version, but if you haven’t seen it you really have to see Wings of Desire, a charming, magical tale, beautifully composed and shot.
