2022-04-08 08:01
At the end of the 1999 century, an Indian nuclear satellite was about to fall, and the earth was in a panic, which was regarded as the end of the world. Claire (Solveig Dommartin), who lives in Paris, meets and becomes fascinated by a suspected industrial spy, Trevor (William Hurt), while she is away from her boyfriend Eugene (Sam Neill). In a car accident, Claire knew two robbers and was entrusted with transporting a large amount of stolen money. Claire set out to find Trevor, a mysterious character. Their footprints have spread across four continents: from Nice, Paris, Berlin, Lisbon, Moscow, Beijing, Tokyo, Chase to San Francisco, Sydney, and finally to the aboriginal living area of ​​​​the deserted Cooper Petri in central Australia. In the process, Claire finally learns that Trevor's real name is Sam Farber. He is not an industrial spy, but the son of a scientist. The reason many private investigators chase him is that Faber Sr. (Max von Sydow) built a camera that the blind could see. So that Sam's blind mother (Jeanne Moreau) can see her relatives. Just when a group of people gathered in the Australian canyon, the nuclear satellite was shot down by the United States, and the nuclear magnetic wave interfered with the electrical equipment of the institute, and everything returned to its original state. The outside world does not know whether to live or die? This group of people started a series of experiments that surpassed human technology in the underground laboratory. The experiments of converting digital photography into brain waves and then into images were successful, finally allowing Sam's mother to see her family, and soon died of physical exhaustion. Before he died, his mother said, "It's better to not see, the world has become so ugly." Wenders's subtle words and righteousness are deeply presented here. After that, including old Faber, Sam and Claire all fell into the obsession with dreams. They turned dreams into visuals, allowing people to read dreams (Old Faber always wanted to win the Nobel Prize for this), the conflict between Sam and his father, and Claire's paranoia about childhood dreams. They netted tightly. Let everyone fall into paranoid lost. Only Eugene, who stated the incident, was sober. He knows that the world is not destroyed (it is only affected by the nuclear magnetic pulse), but this group of people is caught in the pursuit of an inextricable dream. So everything like Ulysses' roaming has reflections and answers   .

    Five hours is like experiencing the entire human history. Wenders had the idea in the 1970s, when the millennium seemed far away. After the shooting was completed, it was already in the 1990s, and everything became too fast - so the settings of the computer and the network inside looked a little weird. But the film gives too much imagination beyond the five hours, from urban crime films to desert humanities films, it is all-encompassing and unique in originality
