The Wrong Move (UK) or Wrong Movement (USA video title) (Template:Lang-de) is a 1975 German road movie directed by Wim Wenders. This was the second part of Wenders' "Road Movie Trilogy" which included Alice in the Cities (1974) and Kings of the Road (1976). The Wrong Move stars Rüdiger Vogler and Hanna Schygulla and notably was the film debut of Nastassja Kinski, who later played one of the leading roles in Wenders' film Paris, Texas (1984), as well as appearing in his Faraway, So Close (1993) (not a road movie). Kinski was thirteen years old at the time of filming.

The film is largely plot-less, with long carefully composed shots characteristic of Wenders' work. The story follows the wanderings of an aspiring young writer, Wilhelm Meister (Rüdiger Vogler), who begins his journey by leaving his oppressive mother and hometown, traveling about West Germany gathering an odd cast of friends, and winds up alone in Zugspitze. His thoughts are occasionally presented in voice-over. The movie is a rough adaption of Goethe's Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship - generally considered to be the first Bildungsroman ("novel of formation"). Cinematography by long-time Wenders collaborator Robby Müller. German with English subtitles. Color.
