Trivia: When Meg Ryan is looking in the mirror and Cage is not reflected, this was shot twice with motion control: once with Ryan and Cage, once without the actors, and mixed together. also, if you look closely enough, you can see a few strands of Ryan’s hair morphing in and out where Cage’s face was erased.
Seth: Hello Maggie! It’s nice to see you again.
Maggie Rice: It’s weird to see you again.
Seth: Weird is nice.
Ann: Never date a guy who knows more about your vagina than you do.
Maggie: Something happened in that room. I got this jolt that… something bigger is out there. Something bigger than me, bigger than you. Does that sound crazy?
Seth: I would rather have had one breath of her hair, one kiss from her mouth, one touch of her hand, than eternity without it. One.
City of Angels is a very memorable, beautiful story – I loved it from beginning to end, well. I’d have preferred a DIFFERENT ending, and of course, if you’ve watched it already, you’d understand what I meant. It starts slow but eventually picks up and really turns out to be an affecting romantic film. On the spiritual level it fails until the final scenes of the film, where spirituality is all that remains in the film. In the romance, it works to a good level. Cage and Ryan possess enough chemistry to make the romance between them believable and both actors give impressive performances. This was a totally magical ride and A movie to see for everyone.
The soundtrack from Goo Goo Dolls ‘Iris’ stands out. One of my favorite songs from 90s era!
