The English-language title of this film is perhaps a little unfortunate, since it must inevitably lead to confusion with the popular Star Trek spin-off series of the same name, something it has absolutely nothing to do with. In fact, this is the relatively little known and long-awaited adaptation of the Swiss-German bestseller novel Homo Faber, filmed by the German director Volker Schlöndorff, best known internationally for 1979's much acclaimed The Tin Drum.
After having made a name in the seventies and early eighties with a number of outstanding films, Schlöndorff has receded somewhat into the background of late. Nevertheless, his more recent films, including Voyager and 1997's The Ogre (starring John Malkovich), are still very much worthy of attention. The slowly but deliberately paced Voyager is arguably the better of these two, an engaging, absorbing drama set in 1957 and spanning several continents. Sam Shepard plays Walter Faber, a world-weary and somewhat cynical construction engineer in his forties, and also a constant traveler without any real roots, who has a chance encounter in Venezuela with the brother of an old friend from his prewar student days in Switzerland. His return to the United States delayed by unusual circumstances (depicted by Schlöndorff with more than a little irony), he then has a further encounter with the much younger Elisabeth ("Sabeth") Piper, played by Julie Delpy, while aboard ship en route to France. The two find themselves inextricably attracted to one another and a romance ensues - but one that leads to unforeseen complications and twists.

The film Homo Faber is based upon the classic bestseller book by the same name written by the Swiss writer Max Frisch and adapted for the screen by screenwriters Rudi Wurlitzer and Volker Schløndorff with Schløndorff as director. The story of Homo Faber, meaning "the man who creates his own destiny" begins in 1957 but make convincingly flashbacks in sepia tone to the war years in Zurich Switzerland where Faber meets the young Jewish girl Hannah and fall in love with her. Hannah gets pregnant with Faber, tells him about the good news and discovers to her disbelief that Faber sees the pregnancy as very inconvenient to him now that he has received a tempting business proposal to head the building of a hydro electric dam in one of the third world countries. Hannah gets an emotional chock and rejects Faber from the bottom of her heart. In anger and disappointment she now turns to Joachim (played by August Zirner) a common student friend of theirs for support and he marries the pregnant Hannah. (But Faber does not know this then)With a psychological thriller-like opening the story has set the tragic undercurrent which runs through the rest of the film like a dark river.

The role of Faber is genuinely well played by the American actor Sam Shepard. Faber is a man of sciences who believes only in what is calculable and rational, he distrusts emotions and those things happening by chance.

On a flight from Caracas, Venezuela to New York Faber's plane has to ditch down in the Mexican desert due to fire in two of the plane's four propeller engines. While in the Mexican desert Faber coolly opens his travel typewriter and sits down to write a letter of goodbye to his old New York girl friend Ivy (played with conviction by Deborah-Lee Furness).

I am a great fan of Julie Delpy, which was my main reason for purchasing this video. "Voyager" is a theatrical masterpiece, unlike any other that I have ever seen before. Ms. Delpy gave a stellar performance as Sabeth, in a very emotional and beautiful role.
I absolutely love this video, and I could not be more happier that I decided to purchase it. Yet, by the same token, I must admit I was not quite prepared for the ending... It struck me as sharply, as an unexpected bolt of lightning. Although it was heartbreaking, I must admit that you also are left with the profound feeling that it truly could not have any ended any other way.
A beautiful film, one to cherish for a lifetime. I am sure that, once you have watched "Voyager", one will never view their lives, in quite the same way, ever again. But be certain to have a box of tissues with you... By the time this movie has finished, you will need them.

Without going much further into detail about the storyline that was previously given by someone else, I'd like to comment on the overall concept of the movie and its main characters. Beautifully shot on location in various locales in Europe helped to give the characters more depth in their surroundings. Sam Shepard and Julie Delpy were very convincing as tender lovers in this haunting and thought provoking story.
In reality, this subject matter would naturally have herendous repercussions. Though its characters are gripped by what has happened, the film makes you FEEL for the two lovers and the girl's mother. Total escapism for the senses yet mind blowing!
I saw this film about 7 years ago on cable tv and later purchased the video. I am so
happy that it has finally been released on DVD! I have now purchased this format and
anticipate seeing the deleted scences, etc. It's near the top of my all time favorite films!
