In the Course of Time

Im Lauf der Zeit

In a bold yet subtle way, Wim Wenders' film captures Germany's recent history as well as the history of film through this story of two men. Life, memory and film intermingle in this three-hour adventure. With one timid and brief exception, women do not appear in the story, and yet they become ever more present: as a reminiscence or hope, as a promise and a life-changing possibility.
