THE GOALIE'S ANXIETY AT THE PENALTY KICK

part of

Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road

Double Feature with Wim Wenders Shorts Program

(1972) dir Wim Wenders w/Arthur Brauss, Kai Fischer, Erika Pluhar [100 min; DCP]
The goalkeeper Josef Bloch (Brauss) is sent off after committing a foul during an away game. This causes him to completely lose his bearings. He wanders aimlessly through the unfamiliar town, spends the night with the box office attendant of a movie theater (Pluhar), and strangles her the next morning. Bloch then goes to the country place of his ex-girlfriend (Fischer) and passively waits there for the police to arrive. Inspired by the visual style of Hitchcock’s films, Wenders’ debut film adheres minutely to the thoroughly “cinematic” source, a novel by Peter Handke.
