Joyce Julianne Auer,
Drama about a young Dane (Allan Olsen) who has traveled to America to find the father he can hardly remember. In New Mexico he gets to know the daughter of a political-religious fanatic who runs a "survival school". The young Dane is interested in the girl and admits to school. Later, however, there will be a violent showdown with the fanatic. But was this man, in fact, his father?
I just saw this great movie about a man who travels to the US. Whereas some reviewers here says that it fails as a travel-movie, I don't think so. It does convey the mystery and beauty of America just as well as, say, David Lynch. It just does it in its own way. I have some trouble understanding why anyone would think this is a bad movie. Moreover, seen from a 2009 perspective it also gives a good impression of how the 1980s were like. I am not very familiar with the movies of Wim Wenders but I find it hard to believe that his movies should be better than "Time-Out". They are just different. Moreover, the ending of this movie is very spooky and surprising. It is, perhaps, true that the movie seems a bit tedious in the beginning before it gets started but all the time we have this feeling of being in the US which keeps giving value and meaning to the film.
