Quotes

Wim Wenders: It is really amazing when I think of how pessimistic was our prediction, in that year of 1982. It is amazing how the cinema was maintained that well. It hasn't just surpassed our higher expectations in the prior moment, the 90s and today, the XXI Century, but in fact saved itself from the whole it was in. The cinema is more alive than ever.
