“Die Toten Hosen front-man Campino headlines iconic German filmmaker Wim Wenders’ drama about a world-renowned photographer who finds a new life and a new love while being targeted by a tenacious trigger-man. Finn (Campino) is a successful shutterbug who leads a hectic life, gets precious little sleep, and doesn’t go anywhere without his trusty headphones. One day, when Finn’s life begins to unravel, he leaves D├╝sseldorf behind to find peace in Palermo. Just as the seeds for a new life are planted, however, a mysterious assassin comes gunning for Finn with a vengeance. Inga Busch, Dennis Hopper, and Lou Reed co-star.” – Rovi
