Until the End of the World

Until the End of the World (GermanBis ans Ende der WeltFrenchJusqu’au bout du monde) is a 1991 science fiction drama film directed by German filmmaker Wim Wenders. Set at the turn of the millennium in the shadow of a world-changing catastrophe, the film follows a man and woman, played by William Hurt and Solveig Dommartin, as they are pursued across the globe, in a plot involving a device that can record visual experiences and visualize dreams. An initial draft of the screenplay was written by American filmmaker Michael Almereyda, but the final screenplay is credited to Wenders and Peter Carey, from a story by Wenders and Dommartin. Wenders, whose career had been distinguished by his mastery of the road movie, intended this as the ultimate example of the genre.

The film has been released in several editions, ranging in length from 158 to 287 minutes.
