Movie Info

While traveling his route along the border between East and West Germany, projector repairman Bruno (Rüdiger Vogler) meets pediatrician Robert (Hanns Zischler) when the latter attempts suicide by driving his car into a shallow lake. From such off beginnings, the two form a genuine friendship as Robert accompanies Bruno on the road. They discuss the decline of German film, the hegemony of America culture and their challenging relationships with women before ultimately parting ways.

    a wonderful road movie, a form that's become an american institution, but as one character says here: 'the americans have colonized our subconscious!' beautifully shot in black and white with every scene perfectly framed; if it was a lil bit shorter i could give it 5 stars :) as is, it took me 2 nights to get through, and i'm glad i took my time with it. earthy and ethereal, a tough combination to get right, but wenders manages it here
