Storyline

1870. Dr. Jamie Dodd is elated : he has finally succeeded in capturing not one, but two pygmies. He brings them to Scotland with the help of Elena Van den Ende, an adventurous woman who sells wild animals to the zoos of Europe. His two anthropologist friends, Alexander and Fraser, and himself are certain they have discovered the missing link, which will make them famous. They start examining the pygmy couple from every angle and Jamie gradually discovers that Toko and Likola are just as sensitive and intelligent as any other homo sapiens. His two colleagues strongly reject this idea as it is glory they are after not the truth. Will Jamie be able to prove the two short people are genuine human beings and not freaks to be shown in a zoo? Written by Guy Bellinger

Goofs

When Likola shoots Douglas in the cage trap/fight scene, she is using a model 1873 Colt Single Action Army revolver (a.k.a. "The Peacemaker"), an evident mistake since the action is clearly stated to be set in the year 1870. See more »

A wonderful film to have been a part of...xx-xx
27 May 2007 | by georgecavanaghSee all my reviews

Although I have never seen the completed Man to Man film, only the trailer, I know, hand on heart, for me, this was one of the greatest films ever written. Why? because I was there! Every picture tells a story and behind the scenes some stories never get told. I only joined the "Man to Man" crew at the later stages of filming in Scotland but living the life of a nomad on the road was a fantastic, once in a lifetime experience and comes highly recommended to any mere mortal who gets the slightest chance. Circus comes to town, Circus leaves town, all the locals get back to normal and the actors take their leave to go away, or do they? One day we found a secret rock pool not far from a film location. (I say we, I suppose it was one of the actors who first discovered it.)I thought later of burying some treasure there, it just had some magic about it. Anyway it cleansed my thoughts and all those who sailed through it I guess. One day perhaps I'll get to see the whole film and take myself back to the scene where the rock pool began. xx-xx Excert from the script..."I wanted to go into the forest with her and continue to protect her... but she made me understand that our journey together had come to an end, there, at the border of her land, the very frontier of her world... adieu, adieu, adieu!
