ALICE IN THE CITIES

part of

Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road

Double Feature with WRONG MOVE

(1974) dir Wim Wenders w/Rüdiger Vogler, Yella Rottländer [112 min; DCP]
Technically, ALICE IN THE CITIES is Wenders’ fourth film, but he often refers to it as his first, because it was during this film that he discovered the genre of the road movie. The German journalist Winter (Vogler) – traveling home after a failed attempt to write a story about America – finds himself saddled with little Alice (Rottländer), when he meets her mother the day before his departure. When the mother doesn’t show up to meet them in Amsterdam as promised, Winter and Alice set out to try to find Alice’s grandmother on their own. During their search together, their initial mutual dislike gradually transforms into a heartfelt affection.

“With this film, Wenders crystallized his style of existential sentimentality.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker
