5.0 out of 5 stars Get the tissues ready!, 30 Jan 2002
This review is from: City Of Angels [VHS] [1998] (VHS Tape)
I'm usually against remakes of old films, but this is an exception. The original movie was in German and the remake was based loosely on the original. Just when I thought Nicolas Cage has played every type of character possible, he plays an angel. There are many angels roaming the city without people knowing it. They are there to console people or to pick them up when they die. The movie opens with Seth (Nicolas Cage) watching over a sick little girl. He follows her all the way to the hospital where she dies, then he takes her hand and walks her to the "light". He later watches over another patient being operated on by Maggie (Meg Ryan) and during the operation, she stares right at him. He instantly falls in love with her and wishes he could be human to be with her. It turns out the patient she was working on, Messinger (Dennis Franz), was once an angel and knows the secret for an angel to become human. This movie is an excellent romantic movie and Cage is absolutely amazing.
