After a while, however, the depressed driver, Robert, instinctively accepts an offer for a lift in Bruno’s repair van, and just like that, an impromptu relationship begins. Now, against the backdrop of the German countryside, the new companions find themselves sharing the same need for freedom, visiting dilapidated movie theatres for maintenance, and getting to know each other one small town after another. But, no one knows, or cares, how long is the road that stretches out ahead of them. After all, the only thing that matters is one’s commitment to a precious ideal. Have the kings of the road found life’s true meaning?
Plot: Itinerant projection-equipment repairman Bruno Winter and depressed hitchhiker Robert Lander–a doctor who has just been through a break-up with his wife and a half-hearted suicide attempt–travel along the Western side of the East-German border in a repair truck, visiting worn-out movie theaters, learning to communicate across their differences.

And the road goes on
Im Lauf der Zeit is a three hours long film but if you follow the journey of the two main characters, it never gets dull. On the contrary, when we are close to the end of their story, there is a sad feeling that their journey is going to be continued separately now. Wenders in one of his interviews has said that this film along with Summer in the City , Alice in the Cities, Kings of the Road and the State of Things are a group of more personal, subjective films. Each one of these films are about people that travel and they are exposed to unfamiliar situations. Each one of the protagonists are sometime obliged, through observation, to see things with a different way. With the King of the Road, Wenders had the opportunity to explore Germany and he worked completely free when it comes to the script and the construction of the story. He used to write the scene, the night before the shooting and he was exploring the possible ends of the film. The characters, the scenary and the context in which he created the narration, led him to the end of the film. This film is about a route and the relationship between two men that are strangers to each other. What could possible happen between them? One of them is occupied with fixing cinema equipment, travelling nearby the borders of Germany, in small towns or villages. The other, has broke up with his wife, and has left behind a bad relationship with his father, too. According to Wim Wenders this is a film dedicated to male friendship. This story brings together two strangers, lost in the swiftness of the world, that are meant to be travel companions as the time goes by. There is also a difficulty from their side to create relationships or to be with women. That, of course, does not display a homosexual side, rather a difficulty of creating a love bond with someone, to be with someone, to give, to stand in one location, to not escape time. After all, this relationship between Bruno (Rüdiger Vogler) and Lander (Hanns Zischler) might comes to an end but it is based on absolute freedom and true companionship, without labels, names or past being a factor in it. I loved the soundtrack of the film in combination with the wide black and white scenery shots of roads and countryside, because it reflects these feelings of being a travelling soul, without plan, without expectations, able to capture the beauty of unexpected situations.
