In weiter Ferne, so nah!

Wim Wenders Germany, 1993

Salem Kapsaski's rating of the film Faraway, So Close!

I’m saddened to see all the low ratings for this poetic, funny and truly beautiful film. I know I’m in the minority with this one but I actually prefer it to Wings of Desire and could easily compile a list of 100 favourite moments. The late Heinz Rühmann gives a wonderful and heart-breaking performance. (5/5)
