He was also great as the angel in Wim Wender's fascinating Wings of Desire (Der Himmel über Berlin).

Yes - I hadn't realised he was in that as well (though it's been ages since I saw it - was the original the one with Peter Falk, or was that the english-language remake?)

He's in the German original and it's semi-sequel. The Hollywood version is a very different thing with Meg Ryan and Nic Cage. I didn't think it was as bad as many critics suggested, but it took nothing other than the idea of angels living among us from the Wenders film.

It also doesn't have the benefit of featuring a performance by Crime & the City Solution, as Wings of Desire does!
