SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
“a dreamy philosophical travelogue… Wenders has called this his most entertaining film.”
NEW YORK TIMES
"As a beguiling game of sound and picture, Lisbon Story shines. It catches Wenders in a relaxed, reflective mood..."
"Wenders has concocted a lovely little postcard of a movie that is at once a poetic travelogue and a philosophical meditation on the art and trials of filmmaking"
CHICAGO SUN TIMES
Internationally acclaimed director Wim Wenders (PARIS, TEXAS, WINGS OF DESIRE) presents an affectionate portrait of Portugal’s capital city in this engaging and beguiling drama.
Rüdiger Vogler once again returns to the role of Phillip Winter (ALICE IN THE CITIES, KINGS OF THE ROAD), a sound recordist who travels to Lisbon to help a friend (Patrick Bauchau, THE STATE OF THINGS) on the making of his film, only to discover he has disappeared without a trace. As he continues his search, Winter finds himself fascinated by the sounds of everyday life, capturing the city and its people with his recording equipment.
A sly homage to The Third Man, with a nod to Joseph Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’, LISBON STORY is one of Wim Wenders’ most entertaining and intriguing films.
