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   .

    I prefer the first half, the aimless following, the ubiquitous music, and the weird retro urbanized decoration. The second half begins to become profound, and finally finds its own meaning at the end of the world. It is neither following nor a certain purpose, but inadvertently spreading music, spreading words, spreading civilization and wisdom. I really like the rough mosaic DV lens, and recalling that my dreams are so blurry, real and dreamy. I also like the various soundtracks in the film, especially the chorus at the end. Black people are really racially gifted in this regard. I love it. The ending is quite interesting. I watched on the screen and the people inside watched the screen, and the landscape society was broadcasting live. Btw, watching this kind of movie for nearly five hours in 21c20s is still a bit tortured. 4.5

    9.4/10 Donno said that Proust's Reminiscence is the kind of novel that is enough to read once, because it is just writing all the possibilities of the novel. Roland Barthes said in "Death of the Author" that Proust did not write life into fiction, but made life into fiction. So in my opinion, as is the five-hour-long film, Wenders has an epic answer to writing and writing. The end of the century is just a cover, the end of the world is in the center of the soul. The fear of images and "seeing", the worship of writing. The relative Claire looked at with a special camera, wearing a yellow coat and a blue ribbon, was like Vermeer looking at a girl with a pearl earring through a camera obscura hundreds of years ago, walking out of the alleys of Tokyo to pay homage to Ozu? Airplanes and deserts are brilliant West Hollywood. The image of the final dispute is not a Space Odyssey 2001. Painting, digital imaging, from physical vision to dream vision, this is the guide and hymn to the future visual art and art history, it is the reconciliation of all images and all expressions, and the most conscious dream of the artist. Not science fiction, but Borges-like authorism.
