New restoration. Wim Wender’s fourth film. The German journalist Winter wants to write a story about America but is unable to accomplish anything but a series of Polaroids before beginning his journey home. In New York, he reluctantly agrees to take little Alice (Yella Rottländer) with him, because her mother (Lisa Kreuzer) – whom he meets on the day before his departure – has urgent business. In Amsterdam, the mother fails to appear as they agreed, so Winter and Alice set out to try to find Alice’s grandmother. During their search, their initial mutual dislike gradually transforms into a heartfelt affection. In German with subtitles. 1974. 1h53m.
