Synopsis:
The goalkeeper Josef Bloch is sent off after committing a foul during an away game. Losing his bearings, he wanders aimlessly through the unfamiliar town, spends the night with the box-office attendant of a movie theatre and commits a crime. But instead of turning himself in or fleeing, Bloch goes to his exgirlfriend's place in the country and passively waits for the police to catch him. The visual idiom of Hitchcock's films provided the model for Wenders' debut feature and he adheres minutely to the thoroughly "cinematic"' source, a novella by Peter Handke.
With his cameraman Robby Muller and his editor Peter Przygodda, in 'The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick' Wenders set forth a collaboration that would weld this team together for years.
