Paris Texas (1984) dir. Wim Wenders

“I was hoping to show you that I was your father. You showed me I was. But the biggest thing I hoped for, can’t come true. I know that now. You belong together with your mother. It was me that tore you apart. And I owe it to you to bring you back together. But I can’t stay with you. I can never heal up what happened. That’s just the way it is. I can’t even hardly remember what happened. It’s like a gap. But it left me alone in a way that I haven’t gotten over. And right now, I’m afraid. I’m afraid of walking away again. I’m afraid of what I might find. But I’m even more afraid of not facing this fear. I love you, Hunter. I love you more than my life.”

“I used to make long speeches to you after you left. I used to talk to you all the time, even though I was alone. I walked around for months talking to you. Now I don’t know what to say. It was easier when I just imagined you.”

Paris, Texas (1984) dir. Wim Wenders
