Alice In The Cities Blu-Ray + DVD

Alice In The Cities Blu-Ray + DVD
One of the key films of the New German Cinema, Alice In The Cities marked the emergence of Wim Wenders as one of the most distinctive European filmmakers of the 1970s. The first in Wenders' Road Movie Trilogy (followed by Wrong Move and Kings Of The Road) it is also widely accepted to be one of the director's most poignant films. Philip Winter, a journalist with writers' block, becomes the guardian of eight year-old Alice (Yella Rottlander) when her mother leaves the girl with him briefly at an American airport, only never to return. Back in Germany, an unlikely friendship develops between the two as they embark on a journey to find Alice's grandmother. Through Rudiger Vogler's portrayal of the embittered Winter, Wenders presents a stark but witty account of the changing face of Europe, the onset of global consumerism and the influences of American pop culture.
