I am looking for the title of a movie most likely made in the 80s -- I watched it in the 80s -- about a group of people looking for one of the last fertile women, or escorting one of the last fertile women to a place of safety. Film is set in post-apocalyptic New York. One of the characters, possibly a cyborg, has a map of New York memorized.

Could this be 2019, After the Fall of New York?

It is set in 2019, after a nuclear apocalypse, and stars a mercenary out to rescue the last fertile woman on Earth.

    For the record, this film is awful. Rather than watching it, I'd recommend you use the 1hr 36 minutes to practice cooking the perfect omelette or organise your sock drawer

    Or watch Children of Men(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Children_of_Men) instead, better yet read [the book. I'd misremembered, in that it's male fertility (and it's set in the UK, and was written too late to have been to fit the title of this question - but it's good)

  • And the film I stuffed up the link to, being a little shorter, would still allow time to make a couple of omelettes.

  • @ChrisH: Children of Men also depicts loss of female fertility.

  • @Make42 that's how I remembered it, but Wikipedia didn't say so. I must admit it's years since I read it and I'm more into books than films, but it's got good reviews and I'd watch it. I was reading a lot of detective stuff at the time, and picked up a PD James without looking at the back - a good surprise. My local library has a copy, and I'm passing tomorrow, except it's out and overdue.
