whither


Explanation:
The word comes from whither - to what place or state, what is the likely future of. I believe it's also associated with the wind as in *the wuther of the wind amongst trees.
In general I think the title is meant to remind the reader of such words as weather, wind, withered (dry).

Stürmische Leidenschaft


Explanation:
Falls es um den deutschen Filmtitel für "Wuthering Heights" geht, der ist "Stürmische Leidenschaft".

Sollte es sich hingegen um den Song-Titel von Kate Bush (z.B. auf der Millenimum-CD: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00002MHR0/globalsupp... handeln, so würde dieser normalerweise im Orginal ins Deutsche übernommen.
