Wim Wenders captures the atmosphere of the times magnificently. Without too much explanation it becomes clear how everybody manipulates everybody. And things do not always go as you plan them to go. Working with amateurs always is risky. They do not behave like professionals, but that is the beauty. It is a moody film, like the classic French film noir cinema. No Hollywood car chases, but believable action and mistakes and emotions. I saw it many years ago, but it was always on my dvd wish list. Now that I watched it again, it did not disappoint!
