Wenders talks about the circumstances of the movie. He and Ray had a very loose concept in the beginning. They planned a sequel to The American Friend. The movie chanced during the shoot because of Ray’s health. Wenders had a lot of recollections about Ray. He admires him. Some parts of the movie are directed by Ray himself. This movie was also imported for Ray after being an outlaw for Hollywood.

At the time Wenders was forced to make Hammett in L.A. So this move was made in between. The use of video is discussed.

Like always Wenders speaks a little bit dry but he has always a lot of additional information about the movie. 7 out of 10.
