Before, one left the theater befuddled; one now leaves the theater equally befuddled but also moved, even genuinely disturbed.

What appears to be a cosmopolitan picaresque moves from moment to moment to momentousness,.. Wenders' dream is only just now released in an integral, near-5-hour walkabout... A great and poetic and caring film has arrived at last.

Watching it now, even with its dull patches, it seems like a miracle.

Much of Wenders' sprawling saga is absurd, and some of it pretentious, yet set in 199, this film, like all of his previous work, raises interesting questions about the role of modern technology and its impact on identity and interpersonal communication.

Thought-provoking romp by German film director Wim Wenders, a global hopping cinematic philisopher.

Contains a few spectacular moments, but feels misguided overall.

Audience Reviews for Jusqu'au bout du monde

Normally I prefer a 'director's cut' of a film but this time I'll take the edited down version gladly. Four and a half hours is just too damn long for a road trip drama even if some of the ideas in it are akin to great films like Brainstorm. So 4 stars for the two and a half hour version and barely 3 for the 'test of endurance' version.
