Nothing has pleased me more than Michelle Williams' move into somewhat more independent dramatic films and this is one where I can say she was one of the highlights. This is a simple and pure and quite affectations film about life post twin-towers. The flaws are perhaps in the bluntness of some of the images and the low-budget draw backs. But Wenders is commendable for doing just what he pleases.
