Description

Product Description

Cage plays Seth, a restless angel on duty in Los Angeles, who encounters Dr. Maggie Rice (Ryan), a pragmatic heart surgeon whose sense of control is deeply shaken by losing a patient on her table for no apparent reason. Although Seth is there to aid the dying man, he is immediately drawn to Maggie and wants to help her overcome her crisis of confidence. In the process, he falls in love with her and longs for the sensory world he has observed but cannot experience.

Amazon.com

Some critics complained that City of Angels could never compare to Wim Wenders''s exquisite German film Wings of Desire, which served as the later film''s primary inspiration. The better argument to make is that any such comparisons are beside the point, because Wings of Desire was a much more deeply poetic, artfully contemplative film, whereas City of Angels is an enchanting product of mainstream Hollywood. Meg Ryan stars as Dr. Maggie Rice, a heart surgeon who is grieving over a lost patient when an angel named Seth (Nicolas Cage) appears to comfort her. She can see him despite the "rule" that angels are invisible, and Seth''s love for Maggie forces him to choose between angelic immortality and a normal human existence on earth with her. Featuring heavenly roles for TV veterans Andre Braugher and Dennis Franz, the film liberally borrows imagery from Wings of Desire, but it also creates its own charming identity. Cage and Ryan give fine performances as lovers convinced they are soul mates, and although the plot relies on a last-minute twist that doesn''t quite work, this earnest love story struck a chord with audiences and proved to be one of the surprise hits of 1998. --Jeff Shannon

Additional Features

The Special Edition widescreen DVD includes audio commentary by Nicolas Cage, producer Charles Roven, and director Brad Silberling in addition to deleted scenes, a behind-the-scenes documentary, a featurette about the film''s special effects, and the theatrical trailer. --Jeff Shannon

I grew up in a suburban Texas town where there wasn''t much to do other than go to the mall or the movies. Because of this, I saw some movies multiple times in the theater...and *not* always because they were good! After watching this for the first time in 15 years or so, I am reminded that this is one I saw so many times because I loved it. The story holds up and the acting is fantastic. Nic Cage masters the art of being mysterious and loving without any level of creepiness. Which is actually pretty mind-blowing considering this is a dude following a woman around/randomly showing up wherever she is. Being older, I also appreciate some of the deeper emotional "life" feels that we get throughout this movie. Not something I necessarily appreciated or was aware of at 14. Watch again if it''s been awhile. And watch for the first time if you never have.

Welcome to Amazon, a jungle in which one sometimes finds movie reviews that are better written than scripts. It is a re-make. But it''s not half bad.

Cage does the best he can with the script. He "falls" from grace for a mortal woman. In the course of so doing, he becomes mortal, but it is not a punishment, it is an experience he chose, exercising his free will. Cage''s character is not unlike that of Starman, he is essentially a light being in a holographic body that cannot experience any sensory perception, because there is nothing "in" the body, no blood, no hormones. It is an ascended soul wearing a "human" costume.

The angel then, is the watcher who is also the man in black. He can see everything, hear everything, but only as a watcher, he cannot interact, be seen, be heard, it is a one-way street. He is "big" brother but in the form of countless individual angels. Few humans notice angels at all, even though "there is one in every room." Yet no angel can interfere with free will. "Fallen angels" play by the same rules but have more of them and keep their angel memories.

Even those who can see angels and feel their touch might not care what the angel feels. "Maggie" does.
It is the mutuality of interaction that makes the experience meaningful for humans. Humans feel what they expect to feel. At the same time, "Maggie" is the human who wants to ascend. She is cherubic looking. She is selfless. She is ready to be rid of the messy bloody noisy smelly putrid business of sewing up broken hearts that refuse to mend. She is curious to see where they go, perhaps. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

Is a moment of love, a few hours of romance worth a dimension shift? Many have said it not only is, but that love is the driving force in the universe. Without love, nothing would move. So some go up, some go down. For each action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The funny thing about love being a driving force is that it has to keep moving. There is no tying it up to a tree, putting in a cage. Even one called Nicolas.

These two souls were attracted to one another not because they "fit" as romantic partners but because they were alike, both curious, both ready to sacrifice everything they know to learn everything they don''t know. True love is often a passing of like-souls in the hallway, so to speak. Seth does not get into the elevator, he waits for Maggie outside, a step ahead, during the courtship. Perhaps he does not want to see her choice of destinations.

The interesting difference here is the idea that angelic beings are incapable of feeling emotion, of tasting food, of enjoying sensual touch. That they hang around us in order to figure out what makes us tick. "Seth" asks "Maggie" what tears are, what makes the body cry. Is it a purely physical reaction? How does it work? He gets the technical explanation, he looks into the microscope, but some piece is missing. In the end, he becomes fully "human" by crying then grieving, then finding joy in renewal by loving little things, the pounding surf hitting the body swimming just in front of a wave.

And so do we all, moving in cycles from observer to participant and back again in the seasons of life and of lifetimes.

The film is definitely a tear- jerker, but it''s well worth watching.

Meg Ryan - that should tell you enough right there. There are very few BAD Meg Ryan movies. Even fewer BAD romantic comedies that star Meg Ryan.

Then add Nicolas Cage - who is not one of my favorite people in the world - but is a TERRIFIC leading man. He''s not devastatingly handsome. He''s just interesting enough to draw you in. And this is his best work.

Meg plays Maggie - a doctor who takes it very hard when she loses a patient on the table when she did EVERYTHING right and he should have lived, but did not.

Nicolas plays Seth - an Angel who develops a strong attachment to Maggie and wants to help her and ends up falling in love with her. So much so that he allows her to see him - which he''s not really supposed to do.

Dennis Franz plays Nathaniel Messenger - a former angel who decided to take the plunge (literally) and become human. Maggie is his doctor and he guides Seth to understand more about what''s going on and explain to him he can fall to Earth should he choose - and become human.

The movie follows their path to claim each other. The most sensual and yet innocently sweet scene of any movie - a rainstorm and Maggie can''t sleep - and she asks Seth to stay with her - although he won''t let her see him. The music enhances that scene immensely - Sarah McLachlan''s Angel - a more perfect song, I couldn''t imagine.

If you''ve never watched the movie - the ending is actually perfect. It''s not what you''d expect, but it is perfect. And beautiful. It''s filmed beautifully, acted deliberately and wonderfully, and embedded as a fantastic memory.

It would be a sin - literally - to never see this movie.

Weird plot, but maybe that''s why it was a hit? Highlight is soundtrack, with Peter Gabriel''s "I Grieve" being amazing.

Plot came across as self important and hammy.

I don''t want to give away anything and I won''t.

I hate when people don''t warn you first and then offer a movie SPOILER.

I will say that ,I usually cry over animal movies- war movies- anything that has some powerful theme or message to it.

I never cry over romance movies for the most part. Something pretty profound has to happen or be said to move me.

For some reason though, this movie in all its simplicity- got to me.

In the dark, in my den, watching this with my sister, my face had tears- ranging from happy to sad tears and back again.

This movie for me, was heart stirring right from the beginning.

Seeing Nicolas Cage''s face, so wide with innocence and wonder, versus Meg Ryan''s tired appearance and jaded outlook on life, was a good contrast.

The operating room scene(very early in the movie) sets the stage for the storyline and explains the immediate connection Cage begins to feel toward Ryan, a heart surgeon.

Most of the emotions conveyed in this movie are done with looks between each of them.

The dialog does not carry the entire story.

There is a German version of this movie, I believe, and it also has a sequel to it.

You would have to go to Wikipedia to get the name of it.
Problem is- when you look anything up online, regarding a movie, you have to worry you will see a spoiler.

I just may see the German version and if it is as good as it has been touted, I probably will see the sequel as well.

But I know already, not to compare it to the USA''s CITY OF ANGELS.

I had the soundtrack to the movie before the film and after discussing with a friend how much I loved the CD I thought I need to see the film. It is a beautiful love story, without becoming over sentimental but the ending was in someways predictable but that does not take away how good the movie is. Well acted (even for Nicholas Cage who can be hit and miss in his movies at times) by all the actors and Meg Ryan shows she isn''t just a rom/com actress here. I would have to say that most men would put it as a chick flick but actually it has a lot of depth and thought provoking elements which they may enjoy if they did watch this movie. Do recommend the OST which is excellent

I had heard about "City of Angels" but never managed to watch it. Recently it was shown on television and I was excited to finally see it. After the first half hour it started breaking up.But what I had seen was enough to make me want to watch the whole film.So I ordered it ,it arrived a few days later and my husband and I watched it the same night. I have always liked Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan,and the combination of both worked well. What if heaven exists and angels are all around us to guide us, protect us and finally lead us home ? The idea is well thought through ,sad in places but also with the assuring hope that death may not be the last place for us to go. And also the thought that it''s better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all. The film brings home the question what makes us human, with all of our imperfections and limits . Would you swap an eternal life for a life that is final ? Would you leave the security of heaven behind for the chance to experience love ? City of Angels is a highly moving film. Romantic, deep, emotional,and spiritual. We both loved it ,and if you like this genre of film,you will love it too.

As I saw this film on a friend''s wish list, I bought it for her along with "Meet Joe Black" as a Christmas present in 2014 and she loves it. Starring Nicolas Cage (one of her absolute favourite actors) and Meg Ryan, "City of Angels" focuses on an angelic guardian come to earth, named Seth. A highly observant and rather silent character, he dares you to think again on whether you believe in angels or not. His challenging personality has an effect on Maggie, a young surgeon, which soon triggers the start of a gripping relationship. For a film that is charged by Cage scrutinizing everyone around him including Maggie, it is perfect for die hard fans of this fantastic actor.
