What is the movie Paris, Texas about?
“Paris, Texas” is a 1984 drama directed by Wim Wenders and written by Sam Sheppard and L.M. Kit Carson. It stars Harry Dean Stanton as Travis Henderson, an amnesiac who stumbles out of a Texas desert after a four years absence. The film opens with Travis walking through a desert. When he enters a saloon, he collapses from heat and exhaustion. After he is unresponsive to doctor’s questions, the doctor finds a phone number on him and reaches Walt (Dean Stockwell), his brother in California, who agrees to come pick him up. Walt comes to Texas and finds Travis wandering alone. He decides to take him to his Los Angeles home. As they are traveling to LA, Walt tries to break Travis’ silence, and the pieces of Travis’ past are revealed. Travis has disappeared four years ago, leaving his young son Hunter behind. Hunter is living with Walt and his wife Anne, who have taken care of him for the past four years. Visibly shaken Travis begins to open up. In LA, he gradually forms a bond with his son. He also learns that his estranged wife Jane (Nastassja Kinski) is living in Houston, Texas, and that she is still putting money on Hunter’s bank account on the same day every month. Travis decides to go and find her, and he is accompanied by Hunter. In fairly unusual circumstances, Travis confesses to Jane how his drinking and his jealousy suffocated their marriage, and how his feeling of guilt and shame drew him to distance himself from all humanity. He arranges a meeting between Jane and Hunter, and we see him driving out of Houston, alone.

In my opinion this film is classic. The film is not for everyone. Wim Wenders paces the storyline accordingly to the psyche and struggle of the main character, and the concept of searching for answers to his natural state of mind by returning to the place of his conception is a well thought out and intriguing premise for this film.
I have seen this film more than seven times, and love the slow pace because it allows me to be drawn into that world completely and really have the chance to get to know each character. Recommended to anyone with an interest in psychology, cinematography, Sam Shepard's style of story-telling, and movies that walk to their own beat. Natascha Kinski and Stanton are excellent.I give it eight stars, it would have been nine if it was released on DVD.
