Paris Texas

Paris Texas

Winner of the 1984 Palme d’Or Paris, Texas is Wim Wenders’ most critically acclaimed and successful films. 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 Wender’s long time friend Ry Cooder.
