Synopsis

Following their successful collaboration on The Goalkeeper's Fear of the Penalty Kick, Wim Wenders and playwright Peter Handke reunite for WRONG MOVE - the second instalment of Wenders's acclaimed road movie trilogy (bookended by Alice and the Cities and Kings of the Road).

Wilhelm (Rüdiger Vogler) embarks on a journey across Germany in order to find his voice as a writer. Introspective and seemingly without personality, he encounters a series of eccentric characters, including a beautiful and enigmatic actress (Hanna Schygulla) and a mute girl (Nastassja Kinski), who draw Wilhelm into their worlds.

Loosely based on Goethe's landmark novel, Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship, Wim Wenders once again shows his mastery over the road movie genre and creates a brilliant character study of one man's alienation from the world around him.
