Critic Reviews for The Wrong Move

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (2)

  • Everything in Wrong Move happens as if by magic-or as if previously written in the pages of another book. While situated in a mundanely real modern Germany, the narrative is entirely anti-realistic.

    April 15, 2016 | Full Review…
  • A bitter, deadpan parody of all things Romantic, Wenders's film is also so ironic about its own emptiness that it ends up being something pure: a pop dirge about how never sitting still may be the only answer to meaninglessness.

    April 14, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Wenders looks at young rockers through a lens of high culture and applies the theatrical fervor of the Enlightenment to the rumpled rounds of modern buskers.

    April 11, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Angsty and languorous, time has granted the film a rather potent mixture of melancholy and historical significance, which enhances a seemingly glacial pace of continuous walking and talking about poetry, dreams, and loneliness.

    October 8, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The cast and Robby Müller's color cinematography give the film a strange feeling that sets it apart from Wenders's other road movies.

    May 1, 2018 | Full Review…
  • arch and self-consciously arty in its depiction of alienated characters, none of whom feel like flesh-and-blood human beings
