Der Stand der Dinge

Wim Wenders West Germany, 1982

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.
