Description

An eagle swoops down onto a rock outcrop as a gaunt , sunburnt man wearing a blue suit and a red baseball cap emerges from the desert; he finds a tap but fails to draw water, then enters a bar and grabs a handful of ice before collapsing on the floor in a crumbled heap.

Thus the enigmatic opening to Wim Wenders outstanding award winning film "PARIS,TEXAS". At once a road movie, a voyage of self discovery and an essay on cultural differences, the film has become a landmark in European Cinema history . From the extraordinary cinematography of Robby Muller, capturing the taste of grit and dust in the Texas Badlands, to the emotive lyricism of Ry Cooder's exceptional score, "PARIS,TEXAS" is a truly brilliant film.

"PARIS,TEXAS" has a deserved reputation as a modern day classic, and has stood for 14 years as a unique landmark in film making. A distinctly European look at the United States, the film is at once a look at the cultural tension between Europe and the USA, the conflicts of new and old worlds, a road movie and the story of a family thrown far apart. Over a decade after its original release, the film still provokes reactions that speak volumes of its sheer cinematic majesty and power.
