Twitter Capsule: A favor to Lisbon's tourism bureau. A tender elegy to Wenders' pal Federico. Also a movie, but that's third priority.

VOR:   My friend Tim singles out the film's ambition, but I must admit I reacted oppositely. Fond, breezy, brightly lit, free-floatingly affectionate, but pretty riskless?
