This in my opinion, is undoubtedly one of the best films I have ever seen. With no special effects and what I imagine was a very low budget, this film is one of those gems that makes you think for weeks, months and years after seeing it. Filmed in a single location, the dialouge between the characters keeps you captivated for the entire movie. If you like a film that gets you thinking, then I would highly recommend. I just wish more movies were like this !

Nice idea and well acted, simple and engaging a really enjoyable watch made a nice change from films that rely on CGI and have no story

What sounds like a rather uninteresting premise for a film turns into a fantastic dialogue between friends.
The trust, lack of trust, fear and kindness that is in good friendships comes though in the movie.

I have not looked into it, but it would not surprise me if this was an adaptation from a play.
I found it to be a very moving film.

It's a 'nice', quiet film with a couple of little twists, I would have liked it to have gone on for longer. The story did draw me in even though they didn't do a lot with it.

Enjoyed it on a level, but a bit dull and predictable. Interesting facts, which I presume are true, came out.

Simple, unpretentious and sensitive. A far-reaching exploration of some very profound themes. A handful of actors conjure up stories and ideas from prehistory to the present day. It asks a lot of questions and doesn't pretend to know the answers.
Lovely performances.

I have always loved this movie, it's a good mind stretcher and if you see it as it is... A Story, then you'll love it. My Mrs watched it with me for the first time today and she thought it was very boring. So all I can say is watch it once and make your own decision.
