Conceived as the ultimate road movie, this decades-in-the-making science-fiction epic from Wim Wenders follows the restless Claire Tourneur Solveig Dommartin across continents as she pursues a mysterious stranger William Hurt in possession of a device that can make the blind see and bring dream images to waking life. Wim Wenders's sprawling cyberpunk noir epic -- shot in no less than nine different countries -- is set in and stars Solveig Dommartin as Claire, a young Frenchwoman who comes into contact with a large sum of money stolen during a bank heist; in her travels she picks up a mysterious American hitchhiker William Hurt , who himself steals some of the money before parting from her company.
Upon discovering the theft, Claire sets out on his trail, with both a Hammett-styled German private eye Rudiger Vogler as well as her former lover, a novelist portrayed by Sam Neill, in tow. The hitchhiker is really Sam Farber, the son of an underground scientist Max Von Sydow , and his mission is to travel the globe in order to acquire the funding necessary to develop the technology which will allow his blind mother Jeanne Moreau to "see" visual recordings of her family members; the second half of the film takes place largely in the Farbers' compound in the Australian Outback, where Sam, Claire and the others take refuge while attempting to bring the sight project to its fruition, in the meantime pondering earth's future in the wake of a nuclear disaster in outer space.
The original cut ran 20 hours. Realizing that this would make theatrical screenings impossible, Wenders heavily edited the picture and wound up with a 5-hour cut with which he is reportedly satisfied known as the 'Director's Cut'. That version - which premiered theatrically in the U. Unsurprisingly, it confounded critics and lay viewers and infuriated its director, who all but disowned it.
Echoes of Once Upon a Time in America! As with the Leone film, though, the Director's Cut of World did evetually see the light of day. It's now widely available in a multi-disc collector's set throughout Europe, and the public response to that version has been far more favorable. Criterion - Region 'A' - Blu-ray.

Until the End of the World review – visionary techno-futurist nightmare
Aspect Ratio: Widescreen anamorphic - 1. Chapters 42 Release Information: Studio: Criterion. Edition Details:. Blu-ray One. A relatively small core team, working in 9 countries across 4 continents, was supported by large local crews in each new country. The zombie thing is not a problem more of the issues that are addressed. Thanks for any info and thoughts. Tricia This answer contains spoilers… view spoiler [ I think so.
As long as they are OK with the deaths that come with the zombie apocalypse. They weren't terribly gruesome or detailed IMHO.

Spoiler …more I think so. Some animals that don't make it. A couple of murders. See 1 question about Until the End of the World…. Lists with This Book. Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. I listened to the audiobook version of this and it was excellent.
Audiobooks are ruined for me if the reader tries to do a one-person performance as if the book is a stage play. This reader did enough to add value but without being annoying. And the overall story a realistic, everyday life version of the zombie apocalypse was a refreshing take on the genre.

I ended up really liking this book. I stumbled upon this series quite by accident while I was browsing Audible. I am a huge Walking Dead fan so I thought this looked promising and decided to give it a try. This was a story that I liked more and more as I continued to read. I listened to the audiobook for hours at a time and never tired of the story. I am so glad that I took a chance with this book. This book starts just as the trouble begins. Cassie and her friends live in New York City and there is a virus causing people to get sick.
Until the End of the World Series by Sarah Lyons Fleming
The group quickly figures out that things are a lot worse than they are being told and they make plans to get to Cassie's parents' home. Cassie's parents prepared for disasters and though they have both passed away the home is well stocked. I found that during the beginning stages of the book the focus was more on the drama between the characters than the zombie outbreak. I really wanted someone to smack a couple of Cassie's "friends" and move on to more zombie stuff. As the book progressed, I started seeing more and more of the zombie action that I had wanted. There is a rather large cast of characters to keep track of in this book but each of their personalities were well developed so it really wasn't too much of a problem.
The characters do grow over the course of the book and the same characters that I wanted to feed to the zombies did end up redeeming themselves. I did end up liking the characters and wanted to see the whole group remain safe. I thought that Julia Whelan did a great job with this story.
here She handled a large number of character voices very well. She put a lot of emotion into the reading of the story and made some of the scenes fell even more intense. She had a very pleasant reading voice and I look forward to listening to more of her work soon. I would recommend this book to others. This may not have been the most original story but it was a lot of fun. I can't wait to see what is in story for Cassie and her friends in the next installment.
Initial Thoughts I liked this one. At the beginning, I did have a few moments that I wanted more zombies and less drama but as things progressed that changed. I was very invested in the safety of these characters and wanted to see things work out. The narration in the audiobook was very well done and I am looking forward to listening to more of the series very soon.
Book source: Audible purchase This book is about so much more than zombies. It's about family, friends, love, breakups and beer. The author had a large cast of characters to deal with but she was able to make each one of them feel like an individual. Each one was believable and independent. Sure they had similarities, but they were a tight knit group of friends; naturally there is overlap in opinions, tastes and voice.
Even outside the topic of the world ending there were heavy subjects dealt with but it never felt like it w This book is about so much more than zombies. Even outside the topic of the world ending there were heavy subjects dealt with but it never felt like it weighed you down. It's an apocalyptic doom and gloom novel that keeps you grinning and cheering for the characters even after you finish reading it.
I can't wait for the sequel.

I cried like a wuss bag not just once I picked this book up yesterday and was done reading in less than 24 hours. We have a load of characters but each one seems to have their own personality which endears each one to the reader. Not one time did I get lost with who was who because the author did such a kick ass job of bringing these characters to life.
