With his outsider's view of America, Wim Wenders transforms PARIS, TEXAS into a haunting tale of loss, redemption and the ties that bind families together, and is arguably Wenders' greatest achievement. Travis Henderson (Harry Dean Stanton) walks out of the desert after four years, to the amazement of his brother, Walt (Dean Stockwell). Reunited with Hunter (Hunter Carson), his seven-year-old son, Travis decides that they should search for his ex-wife (Nastassja Kinski) so that they can be a family once again. Beautifully shot by Robbie Müller, Sam Shepard's beguilingly simple story is stunningly realised by Wenders, whose stark imagery is accompanied by Ry Cooder's acclaimed score. Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival and the Best Director prize at BAFTA in 1985, PARIS, TEXAS is rightly regarded as one of the artistic triumphs of contemporary world cinema.
