Summary: A man comes stumbling over the Mexican border and into the Texan desert, mute, bowed but driven by an obsessive quest. When his brother (Dean Stockwell) drives him (Harry Dean Stanton) home to LA, the shards of his broken life are painfully pieced together. Four years ago he ‘lost’ his family; now he has returned to fi nd them. Reunited with his 7-year-old son, he travels to Houston, where he fi nds his wife (Nastassja Kinski) working in a peep-show. Director, Wim Wenders, and writer, Sam Shepard, present us with a film filled with the extremes of love, pain, and loss with such immediacy and ruthless candour.

Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes, 1984
