Now traveling under its original, more accurate title - In The Course of Time - this is the King of the Road Movies, a wistful, hypnotic story of two men meandering through the end-of-the-road towns on the East German border. One of the great films about men, about travelling, about cinema (one of the central characters repairs projectors in run-down cinemas), and about the baleful impact of American culture, Wenders' intimate epic is marked by its emotional honesty and stunning black-and-white cinematography.

"a subtle, honest film about the male psyche" Geoff Andrew
