Palermo Shooting

de Wim Wenders



Finn is a successful photographer permanently connected to his cell phone and a lover of music, his constant companion. Hustle and bustle is a norm in his life. One day he leaves it all behind and sets out on a trip from Düsseldorf to Palermo. On the way, he has two encounters: with death, pursuing him in the shape of a shooter with a vengeance, and a woman, who becomes the love of the main character’s life. First film by Wim Wenders in Germany after more than a decade, a reencounter with Dennis Hopper and a new tribute to music, with a cameo appearance by Lou Reed included.
