4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Film For Thinking Adults, 26 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Man From Earth [2007] [DVD] (DVD)
The Man From Earth is classic Sci-Fi made into a film. It's all about the idea of a man who never dies, living 14,000 years and finally telling his friends who he is before he moves on to his next fake life. During the film many aspects of being ancient are explored; memories, relationships, religion, meeting great people, being somewhere else when big events happen.

The whole thing takes place in a one room cabin and it's just a bunch of people talking - but is the main character just making it all up or telling the truth, at least as he sees it?

Not only does Christianity feature large in this film, but the concept of watching your children die of old age in front of you makes for compelling viewing. All the mysteries that man is drawn too are examined.

It's a simple storyline, with believable acting, and it hangs together brilliantly, with the film dealing with all the objections that people would make to the idea of one man living forever.

This is a film for all adults, a cold night with a real fire, a mug of hot chocolate and you've got 90 minutes of enjoyment to look forward to.

I agree with you that this film is for 'thinking adults',
but I have to disagree that it's a film for 'all adults'.
Given that very many people want to only watch Hollywood
blockbuster/shoot-em-up films, I'd say this gem is an offbeat flick for the minority.
