Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I am not a theoretician of the cinema. If you ask me what directing is, the first answer that comes into my head is that I don't know. The second, all my opinions on the subject are in my films. See more »

Trivia:

In 1985 he suffered a stroke that left him paralyzed on his right side and virtually unable to speak. He communicated through drawings (learning with his left hand), a few words and body language. He was unable to finish any film project until 1995, when he released Beyond the Clouds (1995), co-directed by German director Wim Wenders. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently his films are centered around an attractive, damaged (and often adulterous) man and woman who go on a talky journey together which ends ambiguously yet grimly. See more »
