Wim Wenders Bundesrepublik Deutschland, 1977

Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film Der amerikanische Freund

'I'm on the roof with a gun but I don't wanna use it 'cause of the neighbours.' Brilliant. Love the choice and use of music. Draws you in from the start. Gives the film tension, suspension, humour and edge. That red Beetle. Awesome subtle attention to detail. So much style. A lamb seemingly led to the slaughter gets the last laugh.
