Adapted from the Austrian novella by Peter Handke, Wim Wenders begins his cinematic career with this contemplative, pseudo-detective film that explores the monotony of existence. Tonally and visually inspired by Alfred Hitchcock, the film follows a goalkeeper ejected from his soccer match who ends up wandering the streets of Vienna and commits an absurd, meaningless murder. Newly restored, THE GOALIE’S ANXIETY AT THE PENALTY KICK takes an honest, straightforward look at the moral disintegration of its main character. Part of the AFS Wim Wenders series.
