Den tyske instruktør Wim Wenders har sat 16 filmfolk stævne på et hotelværelse under Cannes filmfestivalen i 1982, hvor de direkte til kameraet fortæller om deres syn på filmkunstens fremtid i en tid, hvor tv-formatets popularitet er i stigning og de digitale medier er på vej frem.

The idea of making a (nearly) non-influenced interview is very good and shows some very interesting, different results. I like the answers of Godard and Antonioni, the latter one seems to have some of the most prolific thoughts on the subject. It would be interesting to make a similar film again, more than 35 years after this documentary and after all the changes we had after digitalization and streaming.
I think this is brilliant. These directors are like prophets. So much that they said in 1982 has come true. Fassbinder died not long after this film...so that's pretty special to see him here. I must have been born about a month later. So I find it especially fascinating to hear these experienced directors still trying to work it all out and we now know all the great films they were then to go on to make.
Perhaps the only ones with worthwhile answers are Godard, Fassbinder and Antonioni, yet Spielberg's was rather revealing of his own personality and the modern state of moviemaking in Hollywood (just scratch that idealistic notion of "films for everyone" and realize what it really means - films for everyone to buy).
