Paris, Texas is Wim Wenders’s best-known and internationally most successful film. Celebrated by audiences and critics alike, it won a series of important international awards, including the Palme d’Or at Cannes. The unconventional road movie, based on a script by Pulitzer Prize-winner Sam Shepard, tells the story of Travis (Harry Dean Stanton), a man who wanders out of Mexico and into the blazing heat of Texas’s Big Bend one day. Missing for four years, Travis does not speak a word. He also seems to have largely lost his memory. But he is driven by his wish to find his family again: his young wife, Jane (Nastassja Kinski), whose life he seems to have placed in danger through his pathological jealousy, and his seven-year-old son, Hunter (Hunter Carson). In addition to impressive performances by Stanton and Kinski, a unique soundtrack by Ry Cooder has made Paris, Texas a cult favorite.
