Wim Wenders directs Harry Dean Stanton in this much-loved road-movie.
USA-West Germany-France-UK 1984
Dir Wim Wenders
With Harry Dean Stanton, Nastassja Kinski, Dean Stockwell
A missing man (Stanton) unexpectedly resurfaces with no apparent memory of who he is and what he’s been doing the past four years. His presence unsettles his family, so he and his son set out on a road trip to find his long-estranged wife. The unforgettable twang of Ry Cooder’s bottleneck guitar seems to haunt the picture – Stanton’s favourite film of his career.
