I haven't seen this movie (yet -- I plan to this weekend). I just read in the IMdB pages, though, that Wenders borrowed the entire cast and crew of Raoul Ruiz's "The Territory" to make this movie; and that the leftover film stock from Wenders' production was given to Jim Jarmusch, so he could make the short that eventually became the feature "Stranger Than Paradise." How neat is that!?
I should warn you -- he's a Fourierist.
