(aka "Until the End of the World (UK) (USA)" or "Jusqu'au bout du monde (France)")

 

directed by Wim Wenders
Germany / France / Australia 1991

 

"The Reader's Digest version I was forced to release at the time would have broken my heart if I had left it at that. I knew that. And I felt I owed it to my actors, to my crew and to the musicians who had worked on that fabulous score, to finish the real work we had done. It had epic proportions, that was for sure. Together with my editor, Peter Przygodda, we added another full year after the delivery of the commercial version at the time, at our own expense, and finished what I considered "the real film." Of five hours. Which exists since then and which hopefully will see not only the light of day in the form of DVD releases, but also a few theatrical screenings here or there. I have shown it four or five times already, and EVERYBODY who saw it had the same reaction. "Wow! Now we get it. That's a whole different ballgame!" At the time we had to condense the film so much that all the fun had gone out of it. The "message" had become very heavy, if not to say heavy-handed. The very narrator had become more or less a side character, for instance."

Comments The Director's Cut is presented as a trilogy. It is spread out over on three single layered DVD's, each part with its own opening credit sequence. Wenders claims that that he used the original Super-35mm negative for this version and that the theatrical cut was actually struck from a dupe of the original. As you can see from the stills the image looks very, very good. But, since each disc only holds around an hour and a half of material it is a shame coming from such a high quality source that the transfer's bitrate isn't higher.

Since the transfer is from a 1.33:1 Super-35 source not used for the theatrical release, it is not entirely inappropriate that the anamorphic image is presented at a full screen ratio of 1.78:1 instead of the theatrical ratio of 1.85:1.

I have only scanned through the supplements but I found the 40 minute interview with the director to be concise and highly informative. This is obviously the version Wim Wenders is most attached to. For fans of the original release it is a must-have.
