The Heavens Over Berlin

This week on Someone Else’s Movie, my guest is actor Torri Higginson, an actor who’s been in everything from The English Patient to Stargate Atlantis, and who’s currently starring on the CBC series This Life.  She spent most of the recording scratching Dexter’s ear, because she’s a good person.

Torri picked Wim Wenders’ Wings of Desire, a movie of quiet compassion and endless beauty, and let me tell you: It’s exactly the movie we need to be thinking about right now. We recorded this episode a few weeks back and Trump’s name doesn’t even come up (which should be a nice break for most listeners) but its images of a divided Berlin on the verge of recovery after decades of ideological separation seem awfully relevant once again.

You know the drill: Find it on iTunesGoogle Play and Stitcher, or get it straight from the site. And be kind to each other. It’s literally all we have.
