Personal Quote:

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 »
