A really good movie

Nowadays, Wim Wenders doesn't do anything really amazing anymore but, back in the 90's, I was a huge fan and tried to watch as many of his movies as possible.

To start with, the music was just downright amazing (eventually, a couple of years later, I had the privilege to see Omara Portuondo in a concert in my hometown in France. Good times!).
