VOYAGER
Homo Faber
1991, Westchester Films, 117 min, Dir: Volker Schlöndorff

Walter Faber (Sam Shepard) is a man of logic buffeted by coincidences - a plane crash, a chance meeting of a friend’s brother … and a young woman (Julie Delpy, wonderful here) with a connection to his life that he doesn’t suspect. While the politics of Max Frisch’s source novel are muted in this beautiful 1950s-set adaptation, its focus on mysterious fate and tragic love remains powerful.
