Available for the first time in three decades, Wim Wenders' 1972 classic debut film 'The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick' has been restored and remastered under Wenders' direct supervision. Winner of the Critic's Prize at Venice Film Festival 1972.
The goalkeeper Josef Bloch (Arthur Brauss) is sent off after committing a foul during an away game. Losing his bearings, he wanders aimlessly through the unfamiliar town, spends the night with the box-office attendant of a movie theatre and commits a crime. 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 catch him.
With his cameraman Robby Müller and his editor Peter Przygodda, 'The Goalie's Anxiety' set forth a collaboration that would weld this team together for years.
