Wenders' international break-out film – a loose adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel “Ripley’s Game” – is a loving homage to film noir that stars a quirky yet menacing Dennis Hopper as an amoral American art dealer who exploits a terminally ill German man (Bruno Ganz), immersing them both in an ever-deepening criminal underworld.
