    Default The Man from Earth




    In short: Intellectual, Philosophical and Down-to-Earth.

    Description: The story about a mysterious man who is about to make a sudden departure from a group of friends he has had the past decade. While a few friends manage to make him stay for a while, they begin to unravel his alleged past. Is he who he claims to be (a man with perfect cell-degradation/build up, and thus able to live for thousands of years)? Is he pulling a joke? Is he mentally unstable?

    Comments: Not my usual brand of whiskey, but absolutely worth watching!

    I loved it even though there's a bit of "naivety" involved. I mean, a whole movie in one room, running on dialogue alone? That's a winner in my book.

    It's exceptionally bad, if judging it alongside other films. Contains a cute story, but if it were a high budget major movie with scenes of the past instead of narrative, it would've been 10x better.

    Yah, that screams a low budget. Still, I am amazed at what they pulled off with so little.
