An angel (Ganz) who spends his time invisibly observing humanity falls in love with a beautiful trapeze artist (Dommartin) and, in one of cinema’s most significant romantic gestures, gives up his wings to descend to Earth and pursue her. Not a Christmas film per se but it’s been a staple of Brattle holiday program for thirty years.
