"Visually Magnificent"

"Beautiful photography from Robby Muller"

"worth every hour on Video or DVD"

"Ry Cooder's perfect award-winning music has spawned countless imitations"

Paris, Texas - by Wim Wenders with Harry Dean Stanton and Natassja Kinski

Winner of the grand prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1984, the haunting story of an amnesiac's struggle to rebuild his shattered life.


The performances of Harry Dean Stanton, Natassja Kinski, Dean Stockwell, Hunter Carson and Aurore Clement are faultless.

The script, from Sam Shephard and L M Kit Carson, is a meandering journey through cities and landscapes and lives. But above all, it is the faultless direction from Wim Wenders that makes this film so special. We find here a director at the height of his powers, creating a film specific in its time and place, yet universal in its resonance.

This film was awarded the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 1984. Watch it, and see why.


"What an impressive film! Every frame is a carefully positioned artwork! The colours are unearthly and fantastic! Ry Cooders haunting score rolls around in your head, like a tumbleweed, for days after you see this movie... "
