The Wrong Move

Friday September 29
Director: Wim Wenders
1975 / 103min / DCP

Long-time Wenders collaborator Peter Handke drew inspiration from Goethe’s novel Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship for the screenplay of this, the second film in Wenders’s “Road Trilogy,” which tracks aspirational writer Wilhelm (Rüdiger Vogler) as he seeks inspiration in a trek across the German countryside, and finds it in encounters with an aging chanteuse, a depressed industrial baron, a preteen juggler (Nastassja Kinski, in her first film), and other eccentrics. Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich was among Müller’s inspirations in shooting the film, a physical voyage that doubles as a trip through Germany’s past, which concludes on the peak of the country’s highest mountain, the Zugspitze.
