14.30 / TCM

Paris, Texas

USA, 1984 (144 minutes). Director: Wim Wenders. Performers: Harry Dean Stanton, Dean Stockwell, Nastassja Kinski.

In the eighties, Wim Wenders established himself as one of the main references of modern cinema. It is attested by films such as Paris, Texas, in which the director immersed himself in an existential and tragic road story. A story so close to the limit that it could only be resolved as a bitter, silent, subtle love story, in which the characters speak with their eyes, since they are orphaned of words, and in which Wenders expresses himself with grim images, as dry as the landscapes that surround the protagonists.
