Award-winning masterpiece 'Paris, Texas'
Winner of several major European
film awards including the prestigious Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1984
and a BAFTA for Best Direction in 1985, Wim Wenders's (Alice In
The Cities, The American Friend, Hammett, Wings Of Desire)
critically acclaimed PARIS, TEXAS resulted from a unique
collaboration between the director and actor and Pulitzer
Prize-winning playwright Sam Shepard. The pair first met in 1978
when Wenders was hoping to cast Shepard as the lead in Hammet. The
part eventually went to Frederic Forrest, but Wenders and Shepard
vowed to work together sometime in the future. Their plans were
finally realised in 1983, when the director and playwright cooked
up the story that would form the basis of PARIS, TEXAS while
playing pool in their favourite bar in San Francisco.
Travis (Harry Dean Stanton), a
seemingly mute, semi-catatonic, amnesiac man wanders out of the
desert and into a small, rural Texan town, his sole possession a
piece of paper bearing the Los Angeles telephone number of his
younger brother, Walt (Dean Stockwell). Returning to LA with Walt,
Travis's memory slowly returns as he begins to piece together the
details of his life, discovering the wife and young son he walked
out on four years previously.
Scripted by Sam Shepard and LM Kit
Carson (Breathless, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), PARIS TEXAS
stars Harry Dean Stanton (Repo Man, The Straight Story, The Green
Mile), Dean Stockwell (Blue Velvet), Nastassja Kinski (Tess,
Maria's Lovers, Your Friends And Neigbours), Aurure Clement (Apocalypse
Now Redux, Trouble Every Day), musician John Lurie (Down By Law,
Wild At Heart) and LM Kit Carson's son Hunter Carson (Invaders
From Mars, Perfume). Beautifully shot by longtime Wenders
cinematographer Robby Muller (winner of the German Camera Award in
1984 and the Bavarian Film Award for Best Cinematography in 1985
for his work on the film), and featuring a memorable, haunting
score by guitarist Ry Cooder, PARIS TEXAS is an unforgettable
study of human emotions, relationships and alienation.
Wim Wenders and Sam Shepard are
currently collaborating on a new film project (along with a mutual
friend, the musician T-Bone Burnett) under the working title,
In America, starring Mark Everett (aka E, leader of the rock band
Eels) and Robin Wright Penn.

VHS "Paris, Texas"
di Wim Wenders. "Paris Texas è il capolavoro di Wenders, almeno
così viene descritto dai media. Ed hanno ragione. Descrive
l'itinerario triste di un uomo che ha passato un esperienza dolorosa,
e sceglie di rifugiarsi, sia alla fine che all'inizio del film, nella
solitudine, alla ricerca di un luogo, (un luogo che ha "acquistato"
quando era felice), ove rifugiarsi. L'ambientazione del film ricalca
quella tipica dei film con paesaggi "on the road", ma la
storia è un qualcosa che si isola dal contesto scenografico, una
storia che potrebbe essere raccontata anche in altri modi. Wenders
sottolinea il carattere di quest'uomo, descrivendo in tutto il film la
sua fragilità d'animo, e la sua bontà. Una bontà che sembra
contrastare con la decisione di lasciare il figlio di lei con lei,
senza riportarlo indietro dai genitori adottivi. Ma in realtà, un
grande gesto d'amore e di comprensione verso l'ex compagna. Wenders
gira il film utilizzando la reale dimensione temporale, sia nel
volgere dell'intera storia, che nel mostrare singole scene. Un film
incredibilmente emozionante, e che alla fine stringe il cuore, per un
epilogo emozionante, quanto logico, nella sua fredda descrizione

"Travis (Harry Dean Stanton) is
wandering through the Texas desert, a bit shaky and in desperate need
of water, when he stumbles into a bar and collapses. A German doctor
of dubious credentials finds a phone number in Travis's wallet, which
belongs to his brother, Walt (Dean Stockwell). Walt is shocked to hear
about his brother's condition, since no one in the family has seen or
heard from Travis in four years; Walt flies to Texas to bring him
home, only to find Travis wandering by the side of the road, and they
begin the long drive back to Los Angeles, where Walt lives with his
wife Anne (Aurore Clement) and Hunter (Hunter Carson), Travis's
seven-year-old son. At first, Travis refuses to speak and is oddly
distant, but in time he begins to talk again, and when he arrives in
California, he begins the painful process of reacquainting himself
with his son and trying to reconcile with his wife Jane (Nastassia
Kinski). Paris, Texas may be the finest of Wim Wenders's "road
movies," a deliberately paced but deeply moving story of a man at
the end of his emotional rope who is given an unexpected chance to
heal both his scars and those he has inflicted on others. Harry Dean
Stanton gives perhaps his finest performance -- few actors could pull
off a scene like the long monologue he shares with Kinski near the
film's conclusion -- and he is ably supported by Stockwell and by the
young Carson, son of L.M. Kit Carson, who adapted the screenplay from
Sam Shepard's Motel Stories. Robby Muller's photography and Ry
Cooder's score add immeasurably to the impact of this superlative mood

PARIS, TEXAS (VHS)
Ein anrührender Film von Wim Wenders
Wim Wenders (In weiter Ferne, so nah, Der Himmel über Berlin) lässt sich bei dieser Familientragödie viel Zeit. Paris, Texas ist ein ruhiger Film mit viel Tiefgang. Auf die sensible Darstellung der Charaktere legt Wenders seinen Schwerpunkt. Der Film sucht nach den Wurzeln der Kommunikationsprobleme zwischen Mann und Frau, ohne das Ziel zu verfolgen, einfache Lösungen zu liefern. Die Tragödie nimmt ihren Lauf, allein die Erkenntnis sich selbst besser zu verstehen, verspricht Hoffung. Die Stilmittel des Deutschen Autorenfilms passend in einem amerikanischen Roadmovie zu verwenden, ist Wenders geglückt. Das Panorama der nordamerikanischen Wüste und die vielen stillen Momente verleihen der glaubhaft menschlichen Geschichte eine beeindruckende mythische Dimension.

Ry Cooder has done some of the best soundtracks in the last 20 years
His lonesome, steel-guitar music for Wim Wenders' Paris, Texas is one of those cases where the movie and its music are equally
great. I can't imagine one without the other. Every time I hear Cooder's opening
theme, I see those wide western spaces and Travis (Harry Dean
Stanton) wandering through them; and every time I see a still from the
movie, I can hear Cooder's music playing in my head. --Jim Emerson
