Wim Wenders: “I am fed up and desperate about the state of the world”

For Wim Wenders, cinema is more than just a profession. He sees himself as a craftsman, as someone who builds something with his hands to try to change things, even a little. Even in his most unsuccessful films – which unfortunately have been several lately – you can see that care taken in each story he decides to tell. There is always that passion in Wenders with which he dazzled in auteur cinema thanks to masterpieces such as The Sky Over Berlin or, above all, Paris, Texas . There is also in him a filmmaker who never tires of trying, playing and discovering. There are his documentaries with overwhelming 3D where, for example, he gave us a new (three-dimensional) perspective on Pina Bausch's dance.

That Wim Wenders continues making films is good news for everyone. Cinema is a little better with authors like him, committed and humble. If he also returns to his best moment with a film like Perfect Days, the good news is even better. The film, which won Best Actor at Cannes for Koji Yakusho, follows a public toilet cleaner in Tokyo who is clear that his work improves the lives of others. A slow, exciting film that breathes Ozu through all its pores and is accompanied by a soundtrack full of classics by Lou Reed, Nina Simone and Patti Smith.
