Faraway, So Close!

The film opens with the angel Cassiel (Otto Sander) standing on the statue of the Angel of Victory overlooking post-Cold War Berlin. Growing ever more despondent over his fate as a mere observer of human life, rather than a vital part of it, Cassiel dreams of “crossing over” to the human world.And he does, as Karl Engel, a man who perhaps knows too much, perhaps like in many of Hitchcock’s films, some harmless citizen who gets involved in an affair to which he is not up to. In fact, there is no one as kind and harmless as this newborn citizen of the Earth.We will follow Cassiels’s adventures into a “thriller.” This story which gets mangled with his own life is about weapons, more precisely about a weapon deal where the weapons – or INSTRUMENTS of violence — are traded for IMAGES of violence.(Text from Wim Wenders site)

FMovies Review:

Really fantastic movie, my favorite in fantasy genre. I accept that my expectations are very low before I see this movie. I was so impressed of Faraway, So Close! that I ended up watching it eleven times in cinema and few times watch online.

I’m the huge fan of movies like this I never expected anything from this animated before and I blew my mind. The action, special effects, characters and score are all perfect to me.

The soundtrack, the atmosphere and the characters. The fact it still holds up so well is a testament to what a work of art it is. There is no better place in web for movies than FMovies so I added full movie Faraway, So Close! here :), so everyone now can see it online for free.
