Sent off during a match in Vienna, a German goalkeeper (Brauss) leaves the stadium, wanders around the city, visits a cinema and ends up committing a wholly unexpected murder... Wenders – a Bresson admirer with a particular love of Mouchette – follows the Frenchman in refusing to offer psychological explanations for his protagonist’s actions, instead allowing Robbie Müller’s typically eloquent images to work their magic.
