My backbrain went "Aha."

From The Onion AV Club review of the Wings of Desire DVD:
Henri Alekan, cinematographer on Jean Cocteau's Beauty And The Beast, came out of retirement to give Wenders' film a luminescence that recalls early silents and German expressionism, with otherworldly shifts from fine-grain black-and-white to deep color...
Yeah! They are similar that way1

Yaaayyy! Wings of Desire is out on DVD!! (Rushing off to find my credit card.)

That film, to me, has the worst German-to-English title translation I've ever heard. A very thoughtful pun in the German (the sky over Berlin / heaven over Berlin) ended up sounding like a bad romance novel in English. Which is odd, because most of the bad title translations I know actually go the other way.

I agree! But the English subtitles don't seem so bad, overall (then again, my knowledge of German is fairly sketchy).

Ahh, yes, that does explain a few things. Wonder how soon Netflix will have this?

*clicks over to Netflix cue*

Thanks!

Ooooooooooh! Everyone who would watch it with me lives halfway around the world. It's good to know it's now on DVD though!

Well, I'm not halfway around the world, but, well, yeah. And if we watched it at the same time in our separate living-rooms, that wouldn't be quite the same as watching it together.
