New German Cinema pioneer Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire) brings his keen eye for landscape to the American Southwest in Paris, Texas, a profoundly moving character study written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Sam Shepard. Paris, Texas follows the mysterious, nearly mute drifter Travis (a magnificent Harry Dean Stanton, whose face is a landscape all its own) as he tries to reconnect with his young son, living with his brother (Dean Stockwell) in Los Angeles, and his missing wife (Nastassja Kinski). From this simple setup, Wenders and Shepard produce a powerful statement on codes of masculinity and the myth of the American family, as well as an exquisite visual exploration of a vast, crumbling world of canyons and neon

The story of Helga, a young German doctor, who is stationed at a field hospital in the Balkans during World War II. One day, she is kidnapped by Yugoslavian partisans, and though she first tries to escape, her duty as a doctor makes her stay. Then typhoid breaks out in the partisans' camp, and Helga smuggles the much-needed medication out of the German field hospital. The bridge which separates the enemy camps becomes a poignant symbol for the senselessness of the war. Maria Schell, an actress particularly well-known for her melodramatic roles, portrays with great sensitivity the conflicts of a doctor trapped 'between two fronts'

The first major antiwar film to come out of Germany after World War II, as well as the nation's first postwar film to be widely shown internationally, even securing an Oscar nomination. Set near the end of the war, it follows a group of teenage boys in a small town as they contend with everyday matters like school, girls, and parents, before enlisting as soldiers and being forced to defend their home turf in a confused, terrifying battle. This expressively shot, emotionally bruising drama dared to humanize young German soldiers at a historically tender moment in history

"This is the true saga of the anti-Hitler German Army officers' bomb plot of July 20, 1944 that almost killed Nazi Führer Adolf Hitler, and thus very nearly changed the course of World War II ... [In contrast to the reasons behind the plot given in the 2008 Hollywood feature Valkyrie, this film] reveals instead that it was to stop the loss of German lives and the destruction of Germany, and also not to continue the war to a successful conclusion. Thus, it is a more historically accurate film ... Much of the dialogue is lifted straight from historical records."--Container
