If you're looking for a defining Wenders image, try starting with the gloomy angels in overcoats in Wings Of Desire.

Milla Jovovich and Mel Gibson in some weird back brace thingy. A quality independent film.

Very off beat. It was fun, and even though I hate Jeremy Davies, the rest of the cast checked out.
