The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick

Duration: 98 min

Director: Wim Wenders. Austria/West Germany 1972. 101 mins. German with English subtitles.

After being sent off in an away game, a goalkeeper wanders through an unfamiliar town, commits an arbitrary murder and then boards a coach to visit an old flame. Wim Wenders’s second feature is a simmering depiction of a man coming unhinged.

Having remained unavailable for three decades, the film (formerly released as The Goalkeeper's Fear of the Penalty) returns to UK cinemas in January 2018, restored and remastered in stunning 4K, commissioned by the Wim Wenders Foundation under the direct supervision of Wenders himself.
