    • Synopsis
    • Paris, Texas is probably Wim Wenders’ most well known, critically acclaimed, and successful movie, winning a number of international prizes including the Cannes Palme D’Or for Best Film in 1984.
      This unusual road movie, with screenplay by acclaimed playwright Sam Shepard, tells the tale of Travis, a man lost in his own private hell. Presumed dead for four years, he reappears from the desert on the Mexico border, world-weary and an amnesiac. With extraordinary performances from Harry Dean Stanton as Travis and Natassja Kinski as Jane, the film also boasts a soundtrack by Ry Cooder.
