An insight into the early life and work of one of cinema's most iconic and enigmatic directors. Marcel Wehn's film, made over a period of two years, explores Wim Wenders' post-war education and his time at the Munich Film School, before moving on to the films of the 1970s that brought him international recognition. As well as examining the themes featured in many of his best known films, the documentary also features contributions from those that have known him both professionally and privately throughout his career.

Unsurprisingly Wenders comes across as somewhat taciturn, a big bear of a man, driven to make films beyond any particular need for close relationships. The bulk of the film is in his own words, or those of collaborators, and it is a surprisingly balanced approach, Robby Muller has clearly fallen out with Wenders big time.
It is also a rather Wenders-esque experience, with snatches of cryptic, possibly profound, dialogue, and banal, possibly evocative, footage.
I found it quite emotional and thought-provoking, and would recommend it to any Wenders fans. As with his films, it is slow, but rewarding.
Unusually for this run of discs from Axiom there are no extras included.
Whilst a lot that is said by Wenders or those who were close to him does, to an extent, explain number of motives in his films, for me it almost deprived them of their charm; it did in no way helped me to understand them better or perceive them in a different light. Unfortunately, I also failed to find the powerful persona that Wenders is meant to be in the character featured in this documentary.
I almost wish I hadn't seen it and wouldn't recommend it unless you are writing a piece of Wenders as he discloses rather a lot in this documentary but whether it is the real him... I would hope not. As they say, sometimes it is best not to know about the persons we know as authors.
