“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 Düsseldorf 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
