The late, great Harry Dean Stanton stars in Wim Wenders’ drama about a missing man who suddenly re-appears.
USA-UK-France-West Germany 1984
Dir Wim Wenders
With Harry Dean Stanton, Nastassja Kinski, Dean Stockwell
A long-missing man unexpectedly resurfaces with no apparent memory of who he is and what he’s been doing all this time. His presence unsettles his family and so he and his son set out on a road trip to find his estranged wife. The unforgettable twang of Ry Cooder’s bottleneck guitar haunts the picture and provides another example of music and film working in perfect harmony.
