Harry Dean Stanton stars as Travis Clay Henderson, an errant husband who reappears in the middle of an American desert after an absence of four years. His brother (Dean Stockwell) picks him up and Travis slowly begins to retrace the paths of his old life, getting to know his seven-year-old son Hunter, and going in search of his ex-wife Jane (Nastassja Kinski), who is now working in a peepshow. Directed by Wim Wenders from a screenplay by Sam Shepard, and featuring a soundtrack by Ry Cooder.
Something like a perfect artistic union is achieved in the major components of Paris, Texas: the twang of Ry Cooder's guitar, the lonely light of Robbie Muller's camera, the craggy landscape of Harry Dean Stanton's face. In his greatest role, longtime character actor Stanton plays a man brought back to his old life after wandering in the desert (or somewhere) for four years. He has a 7-year-old son to get to know, and his wife has gone missing. The material is much in the wanderlust spirit of director Wim Wenders, working from a script by Sam Shepard and L.M. Kit Carson. If the long climactic conversation between Stanton and Nastassja Kinski renders the movie uneven and slightly inscrutable, it's hard to think of a more fitting ending--and besides, the achingly empty American spaces stick longer in the memory than the dialogue. Winner of the top prize at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival. --Robert Horton

Loved the performances, loved the photography; It's a very human, gorgeous gorgeous film!
DVD is superb - great film-like appearance with grain, lovely reproduction of colour plus great sound and some worthwhile extras.
Anyone reading btw - are their any recommendations for other Wim Wenders films? I'm becoming a bit of a fan!x
I think everything has been said about the film. It is an absolute masterpiece and is one of my top five films of all time. Ry Cooder's music perfectly matches the atmosphere and slow pace of the film. This is a must see, must have film.
