Wenders have succeeded in turning an assignment he got by the Pompidou centre into a work that's actually rather fascinating. It's a really fresh essay film. It doesn't tell so much about it's subject the fashion designer, but reflects on more abstract issues like art and fashion, and time and timelessness, and subjectivity and objectivity.

Although I felt it was very beautiful and fascinating, I thought that it maybe lacked in urgency somewhat - the fashion designer and all the persons in the film remained really distant. But at the same time I found it fresher and not so over-elaborated as some of Wenders movies. For friends of essay-movies and the late movies of Godard it's highly recommended.
