In weiter Ferne, so nah!

Wim Wenders Germany, 1993

Wee Hunk's rating of the film Faraway, So Close!

You can't recreate the magic of the original. The original didn't have a lot of plot because it's a love story. This is filled with plot, with good guys and bad guys and guns and pointless kidnapping with some circus routines. All of it very contrived. And they throw in Lou Reed for some random reason. But it was sure nice seeing Nastassja Kinski.
