Until the End of the World

One of cinema's most audacious directors, Wim Wenders, the visionary creator of 'Paris, Texas' and 'Wing Of Desire', brings us the ultimate road movie. Set in an alternate 1999 it presents a world living under the threat of quiet annihilation as a nuclear satellite spirals out of its orbit and back to Earth. As human beings seem to put their lives on hold, a young woman is chased across the globe with a mysterious fugitive who has absconded with a secret government project that might perhaps alter the fate of mankind itself. Starring William Hurt, Max Von Sydow and Jeanne Moreau, the film was shot in 15 cities in seven countries on four continents, and feature truly spellbinding cinematography by Robby Muller ('Breaking The Waves', 'To Live And Die In LA') making Wenders' and acclaimed author Peter Carey's creation a modern day Odyssey.
