"Until the End of the World"
Directed by Wim Wenders
Wim Wenders filmed this
epic, futuristic drama in fifteen cities in eight countries around the
world. The year is 1999. Solveig Dommartin, the enchanting trapeze artist
from Wings of Desire, pursues William Hurt, who helped himself to
stolen money she was guarding for some very nice criminals. She also just
might be in love with the mysterious Hurt who is on a secret mission for
Max Von Sydow, his even more mysterious father who lives in an underground
laboratory in the middle of Australia. Also along for the global chase are
boyfriend Sam Neill, and detectives Rudiger Vogler and Ernie Dingo. This
ambitious work explores the potential end of the world and the incredible
power of our dreams. 158 minutes.
