Until the End of the World is one of the most picturesque, powerful and moving pieces of film work I've ever seen. The way it manages to seemlessly transform itself continually throughout the film, the way it crosses genres, the film's obsession (well, Wenders' obsession...) with visual dominance and the way we perceive our world through sight.

Further, I can think of very few films that manage to cram the emotional range the movie has into one single sitting. Granted, it's a long sitting - but you don't notice.

It's a funny thing when a movie's soundtrack to become vastly more popular than the movie itself. The music really is that good. I have met several people who immediately recognize the soundtrack, and who have neither heard of nor contemplated seeing the movie...
