Review of the Romantic Movie: City of Angels


City of Angels is a Romantic movie:

I have always had a fascination for Angels and watched this movie again recently. The first time I watched it, was a few years ago. It’s about Meg Ryan (a beautiful surgeon) and Nicholas Cage (An Angel).

In the beginning, he could see her but she couldn’t see him, even though he was around her. There was a time she sat on the stairs in hospital crying because she had lost a patient on the operating table and he was just by her, looking at her tenderly and probably feeling her pain, but she didn’t see him.

It got to a point where she was able to see him and talk to him, then he fell in love with her. I won’t reveal much more. It’s a beautiful, touching movie with a twist that you would definitely not expect and one you would most likely watch again.


On a personal note, I feel that in life, as we go about our days, there are beings all around that we can’t see. Some are Angels, some are not. (don’t ask me about those ones. Lol). Also, I would have liked that the Angels in the movie wore white, instead of all black.

To have a feel or glimpse into this movie, watch the 4 minute video of the Soundtrack below. The song is called “In the Arms of the Angels” by Sarah Mclachlan and it shows clips of the movie.

I remember that movie. It was very moving. I like the idea that angels are among us and that we sometimes act as angels to others.

@Imkarn23 - Hi, Ghost is an awesome movie but sad. Whoopy Goldberg makes it hilarious in some parts though. lol. Thanks for stopping.

Sounds like a movie I would like to watch. Nicholas Cage acting as an angel! Well, that is something, I am so used to seeing him act mean or something else weird. I will seek it out. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Lady E. If you liked this, then I strongly recommend you see the film this movie was based on. The original version was a German film called "Wings of Desire" (1988) Its a lyrical and fascinating fairy tale/romance. I thinks its better than the American remake.

@Robwrite - Thanks - I didn't know it was based on an original version. I will see if i can get a peek of it's trailer on youtube. I look forward to seeing it.

I loved this movie. Needless to say, I have not been able to watch it recently and I don't think I will be able to for just a bit longer. You made me realize that I have an unpublished hub poem that goes with this movie really well. I will have to let you know when I publish it.

It is one of my favorites.Nicola Cage is my favorite movie star.I like to watch his movies.He is awesome and great person in real life.

The very touching of the movie scenes for me is when he takes Meg Ryan s palm and moves one of his fingers on it. I like that kind of touches.Thanks for reminding us of that sweet romantic movie.I voted up.
