Starring Harry Dean Stanton, Nastassja Kinski, Dean Stockwell, Aurore Clément and Hunter Carson, Wenders' Paris, Texas is a compelling and stirring portrait of a man in search of his roots.

With its iconic images of the American desert and neon-lit cities, Ry Cooder’s sparse slide guitar score, and Harry Dean Stanton’s haggard figure, Wim Wender’s Palme d’Or winning road movie about a man searching for his family and lost past has become a modern classic.

Wim Wenders dedicated his film to the great film critic Lotte Eisner who fled from the Nazis and settled in Paris where she worked as archivist for the Cinémathèque Française for many decades. In her film reviews she was very supportive of the New German Cinema.
