Thomas Tsalapatis recommends this movie:

tsalapatis‘“‘I have lost the ability to hear and see.’ And behind a black and white screen, Wim Wenders narrates chance’s journey  in an aging continent, in a Germany  younger than its culpabilities; people’s bonds with the simplicity of a gesture and how a person is able to reinvent himself from scratch through innocence. The narration of a tough tenderness, which in the long run, substantiates your existence.”
