The Man from Earth (2007)

Movie Info :

In the tradition of such psychologically-charged sci-fi outings as The Next One (1982) and K-PAX (2001) comes the cerebral science fiction opus The Man From Earth (2007). The story concerns Professor John Oldman, a scientist who summons a group of associates to a cabin one freezing night, and strikes them with a fantastic revelation: he is not a traditional human, but a 14,000 year-old immortal, who has survived centuries of evolution from the Cro-Magnon Era to the present. In the hours to follow, Professor Oldman's earth-shaking assertion about himself challenges the men on spiritual, scientific and historical levels. But the most incredible is yet to come - an even more astonishing truth in which the men's discussions culminate.

My Review :

The Man from Earth is one of the smartest films I've seen in quite some time. It is a sci-fi drama that consists of just one giant discussion between a man who claims that he is 14.000 years old and his friends. The arguments are simply fascinating, thought-provoking and sometimes the movie was even very intense emotionally and the twist is well handled with the ending also being highly satisfactory. It is the example of a hugely successful indie sci-fi film and undoubtedly one of the most shamefully underappreciated and unknown films.

My Rating :

rating 5

Must own. A classic.
