German director Wim Wenders turns his lens on the city streets for this early short film. Shot from windows of the actual apartments he lived in at the time (he claims to have moved around quite a bit in his younger years), the audience bares witness to eight shots lasting three minutes apiece and filmed from the third, fourth, and fifth floors of the building. Beginning with shots of the empty streets at 3 a.m., the film gradually shifts perspectives as day fades into evening and the city workers pack into the streets to make their way home.
