Film description

Another road movie by the German master. The main character is a popular photographer, who leads a hedonist life in a big city. He has everything he wants, but apparently misses something and he is emotionally burnt-out. When he miraculously avoids a serious accident, he decides to change everything and, inspired by the name of a passing barge, he leaves for Palermo of title. There, he confronts death once again and meets an extraordinary woman.

Summarising films by Wenders, including Palermo Shooting, is pointless - the important things are set outside the plot: in dialogues, often touching on the most important issues, as in Kieślowski's works; in carefully selected music (e.g. Nick Cave, Beirut, Tom Waits, Portishead) which is a commentary to the plot and sets atmosphere;in impressive cinematography; and finally in the atmosphere of lazy wandering through a chaotic city, searching for views to be photographed, enjoying each moment. Palermo Shooting reminds one of Lisbon Story, being a sort of variation on issues dealt with in that film. But here there are eschatological motifs, which had never been present in so literal a form in Wenders's films before, including the unusual scene of conversation with... Death.

The machine which is the main character of the film Flicker, screened within the Films about Art competition, will be presented for a few nights after midnight in a quiet corner at the Arsenal as a spectacular attraction and psychedelic assistance.
