Corey Pierce’s review:
Completely blown away, even as I suspect if it was completely in English language I might have rejected it, since it's overflowing with poetic elements which are not usually my thing. As it is though, the German (and French) language reflects an appropriate romantic intensity as I read along, Peter Falk serves as a nice accent to everything, and it can be dark and awkward along the way. Overall hits my sweet spot when it comes to artsy fartsy filmmaking, and Wenders really has his pacing dead-on, and knows how to gracefully move his camera around beautiful scenery.
All this and some weird club dancing that makes Elaine Benes' moves look superb.
