The 2014 film 'Lucy' written/directed by Luc Besson, used many images sequences from 'Home' with permission. They appear early in the film, during the university lecture given by Morgan Freeman, and in some later sequences. See more »


In the facts section, the text for the 7th fact reads "Every year, 13 millions hectares of forest disappear." It should read million, not millions. See more »


Narrator: The cost of our actions is high. Others pay the price without having been actively involved. I have seen refugee camps as big as cities,sprawling in the desert. How many men, women and children will be left by the wayside tomorrow? Must we always build walls to break the chain of human solidarity, separate peoples and protect the happiness of some from the misery of others?
Narrator: It's too late to be a pessimist. I know that a single human can knock down every wall. It's too late to be a pessimist. ...

27 October 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I have never been so affected by a movie as this one. It makes me sad and angry. So much stupidity.

Even though I knew most of the facts in the movie before I saw it, it was truly an awakening for me. I have just realized that there is a realistic outcome that this system we live in wont last. Its no joke.

I think that the strengths of this movie is that it shows the whole picture and that everything is linked with everything else. Its HD picture is almost as good as "Planet Earth". Personally I thought the beginning was at bit slow, but It gets better...

I highly recommend this movie. It both very educational and the you will enjoy the HD picture/sound. Its also totally free so there is no reason not to watch it. Google for "home movie 2009" or if you want it in HD, download it using Vuze HD network
