"The American Friend"

Using Patricia Highsmith's novel Ripley's Game, Wim
Wenders made this spellbinding existential thriller, which moves from the
docks of Hamburg to the streets of New York. Dennis Hopper plays Ripley, an
art forger and sociopath who lures desperate family man Bruno Ganz deeper
and deeper into international intrigue and murder. With appearances by Sam
Fuller, Nicholas Ray, Jean Eustache, Gerard Blain and Daniel Schmid. German
