Bis Ans Ende Der Welt (1991)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Sometimes-muddled road movie-turns-sci fi. Hurt plays a man who is traveling the world taking pictures with a special camera that will enable the blind to see (specifically, his blind mother). He meets up with Dommartin on the way, and they predictably hit it off. Set in 1999, a subplot about a nuclear satellite that has fallen to earth and presumably destroyed civilization only adds to the confusion.
It's 1999. The government will kill for his invention. One woman will do anything for his love. Together they share an adventure that circles the globe

- Eugene Fitzpatrick: 1999 was the year that the Indian nuclear satellite went out of control.
Claire Tourneur: I don't know where he is. If I knew that, I would be with him; I would be making love to him! I can't believe I just said that. Burt: It's the sodium pentathol I put in your drink. It's a truth drug. Claire Tourneur: That's all right. I put sleeping pills in your drink. Burt: Waiter! Coffee! [slumps]
- It took 14 years and $23 million for Wim Wenders to bring his vision to the screen, shooting in 15 different cities in seven different countries on four different continents.
Wenders pitched his story idea to Australian author Peter Carey, hoping that Carey would write the screenplay. It took him six hours to tell Carey the story.
It was only after "Wings of Desire" turned out to be a sleeper hit, that Wim Wenders was able to get funding for this film.
Wenders' original cut for the film came in at eight hours long.
'Wim Wender''s original rough cut for this film was twenty hours long ("It will never be seen!").
