113 mins - Germany 1974 - Subtitles - Dir: Wim Wenders
Starring: Rüdiger Vogler, Yella Rottländer and Lisa Kreuzer

Philip Winter (Wenders regular Rüdiger Vogler) is at a New York airport when he encounters a young mother. Before he knows it, he is stuck with the woman’s nine-year-old daughter (Yella Rottländer), with no information regarding where in Germany she lives. Arriving home, the photographer and his young charge make their way around the country in an attempt to return her to her family. Philip and Alice’s bond grows stronger as he documents the way the German landscape has changed, emerging from the decades-long impact of the Second World War.

“Captivating performances from both Vogler and Rottlander whose on-screen chemistry provides the beating heart of ALICE OF THE CITIES”
