  1. Mohammad Hassan Movasagh's rating of the film The State of Things

  2. Edgar Matozo's rating of the film The State of Things

    Loved almost everything about this movie: the agonizing and melancholic mood, the good acting, the desolate Portugal locations, the score and especially the striking black and white photography. The ending was a bit annoying, though.

  3. Ethan's rating of the film The State of Things

    This is an interesting document on the stress of making films that feels like Beware of a Holy Whore meets Contempt. Wenders presents a very delicately harsh film here.

  4. Juliana Senra's rating of the film The State of Things

    Imagine if people were ducks!

  5. Joana China's rating of the film The State of Things

    A life without stories isn't worth living.

  6. Luca Angelini's rating of the film The State of Things

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film The State of Things

    Tourné durant l'arrêt de tournage temporaire de "Hammett", une oeuvre excellente, d'un large foisonnement thématique, superbement réalisé, à une époque où Wim Wenders avait encore bien des choses à nous dire... www.cinefiches.com

  10. Mariana Basílio's rating of the film The State of Things

    PRECIOSO WENDERS A ADORAR A COSTA

  11. Marta Donati's rating of the film The State of Things

    (4.5) Absolute gem of a film stemming from a moment of crisis, which makes it even more meaningful and moving. It revolves around the tragedy of waiting, it materialises the feeling of being stuck, the disillusion with stories and the honesty of storytellers. The ending is chilling, yet subtle and disturbingly symbolic. watch it plz you will not regret it.

  16. Vicky Portauger's rating of the film The State of Things

    When I began to watch it, I thought it would be a deception because veen though it was good, it didn't seem very special but the end definitely makes it a wonderful work of art !
