In his road movies Wim Wendes borrows from the utopian thinking of previous centuries, New Age thought, and Christian religion and thus creates a postmodern utopian bricolage. Exploring the redemptive potential of traditional concepts of utopia, Wenders is most strongly indebted to Modernist writers with whom he shares the notion of a utopia reduced to an intensified moment of empathetic perception.
