Movie Info

A beautiful summer day. A garden. A terrace. A woman and a man sit at a table beneath the trees, with a soft summer wind. In the distance, in the vast plain, the silhouette of Paris. A conversation begins: questions and answers between the woman and the man. It deals with sexual experiences, childhood, memories, the essence of summer and the difference between men and women. It illustrates both, feminine perspective and masculine perception. In the background, inside the house that opens onto the terrace, on the woman and the man: the writer, in the process of imagining this dialogue and typing it down. Or is it the other way around? Might it be that those two characters over there tell him what he's putting down on paper: a long, final dialogue between a man and a woman?

I have walked out of better films.

Wim Wenders is gone with the windbags in a dully verbose 3D talkfest that says very little of substance.

A beautifully shot, disappointing, boring and sexist justification of the male artist ego without momentum or point.

Two characters seek an author, a director does not remember his talent. [Full review in Spanish]

The Beautiful Days of Aranjuez speaks of the lost and its reflections do not lead to any revealing conclusions. [Full Review in Spanish]

It seems that Wim Wenders has found his special medium, and, for better or worse, he will keep experimenting with it.
