backtrack; Der amerikanische Freund (1977)


Tragic humanist Wim Wenders goes Krimi and – unsurprisingly – creates interesting psychological drama rather than hi-octane thrills in this many-layered study of doomed men.

Loosely based of Patricia Highsmith’s novel Ripley’s Game, making it an interesting companion to the more faithful 2002 adaptation. In my book of inter-atlantic relations.
