Lisbon Story 1994
In this 1994 Wim Wenders film, Wenders veteran Rudiger Vogler plays a movie soundman who receives a letter from a director friend (Patrick Bauchau) asking him to come to Lisbon. Once there, Vogler finds that his friend has disappeared, but he proceeds to take up residence in the director's abandoned apartment, adding sound effects to Bauchau's unfinished project, which consists of scenes of everyday life in the Portugese capital.
Wenders has shot a visual gem with rich sound and music, whose story-line and entire raison-d'etre is a tribute to film-making itself. Essentially a meditation on what it means to make films 100 years after their invention, Lisbon Story plays like a cross between Lumiere And Company—the first-rate tribute to the movies' centennial in which Wenders also participated—and The Third Man. It's a small, slight movie, but it's worth watching, and best appreciated by those who already admire the director.
