The Goalie's Anxiety At The Penalty Kick (DVD) DVD


After being sent off for committing a foul during an away game, goalkeeper Josef Bloch (Arthur Brauss) wanders aimlessly through the unfamiliar town, spends the night with the box-office attendant of a movie theatre and commits a murder. But instead of turning himself in or fleeing, Bloch goes to his ex-girlfriend s place in the country and passively waits for the police to come and arrest him. As Wenders himself has stated, the visual idiom of Hitchcock s films provided the model for his debut film. He adheres minutely to the thoroughly cinematic source, a novella... by Peter Handke. With his cameraman Robby Müller, and his editor Peter Przygodda - both of whom had already worked with him on his film thesis at the HFF (Munich University of Television and Film) - in THE GOALIE S ANXIETY AT THE PENALTY KICK Wenders set forth a collaboration that would weld this team together for years.
