The Man from Earth (2007)
9/10 first of all, sorry for my mediocre English. this my first review.
When the idea behind a story is this simple and effective, there's no need for great cinematography. The movie reminds me a bit of this Jewish tradition where students gather to argumentate (argue? discuss?) the writings. Or more humbly the conversations we used to have younger, sometimes after smoking funny looking cigarettes. Of course, there are flaws. But doesn't every story, no matter how great, contain flaws? Keep in mind that our whole intellectual evolution has been based on what if's, sometimes for the worst, sometimes for the best.
The movie is more about storytelling than it is about dialectic and reasoning. about the creation of myths.
So, don't take it too seriously, it's just a mind-challenging and entertaining story, quiet well executed.
Its main flaw in my opinion is that it could have been longer and richer in historical references.
BTW, the concept is as old as Christianity as it is very similar to the biblical myth of the errant (wandering) jew.
I hope you enjoy it as I did =)
