The premise is simple by itself, a man who was born 12 000 years ago is still alive to this day and tells a group of friend. It is the way it's brought to us, and how clever the conversations are that sucks you in.
Although it's a low budget film and only use one location to film in, it doesn't feel cheap. The acting is also pretty decent.
I'm usually not a fan of independant films but this one shouldn't be missed. Especially if your tired of the dumbing down of hollywood to appeal to the masses.
The whole movie takes place in a small room of a simple house. However, it is anything but a simple tale.
A little added plus was having `Moonlight Sonata" (Beethoven, 7th Symphony, 2nd Movement) in the background until someone tells John to turn it off.
This was the last work from Screenwriter Jerome Bixby.
I saw the Blu-ray DVD however it is a very poor transfer it is vary grainy and I am sure it was not for art's sake.
After watching the Blu-Ray for a few times, I was curious to find out why the standard DVD costs almost twice as much.
I played them back to back in the same player and they are exactly the same on the main feature on a 46" screen. There is not even the hint of better resolution or sound.
The standard DVD comes with some coming attractions but lets you know that you can go directly to the main menu if you like
There is an audio setup Dolby Surround 5.1 or 2.0. Two different voice-over commentaries.
