[7Movie-Review] 5/1 *revised*

"City of Angels" is a Hollywood remake of Wim Wender's classic "Wings of Desire". In this one, in place of Berlin, two angles Nicolas Cage and Andre Braugher haunt Los Angeles, listening to people's conversation, hanging out in the public library and waiting in hospital rooms to accompany the dead to Heaven.
On an assignment in an operating room, Nicolas Cage's Seth falls in love with Maggie, a young surgeon played by Meg Ryan. After she looses a patient he tries to comfort her and materializes so she can see him. Dennis Frantz, once an angel himself, explains to Seth that he can become human, but it means loosing his immortality to do it. Will he?
City of Angels is an unusual movie. The pace is slow; sometimes very slow, almost a mood piece. There are some interesting visuals, but over all the movie gets a B- for thin characterization and sentimentality. [cutopen]
