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.

Slowly, the movie drifts to questions of belief and I'm already sensing an agenda. Then the film drops its pretense and latches on to the only subject that it ever really wanted to address - you know his name. The remainder of the film is a thinly veiled excuse to express a perceived grievance. (sigh)
The Blu-Ray looks grainier than an old VHS tape. No special features. Currently not rated in USA but it's mainly talk with no profanity, maybe one tense scene involving a gun (not fired).

This is a pristine copy of a great thought provoking controvercial film. No car chases, explosions or violence just a group of people in a room.Published 18 days ago by Amazon Customer

This is a quite different movie with a twist ... venue of this could be a stage play ... it all takes place in one room pretty much .... love the story ... almost sci fi.Published 19 months ago by Ofay Cat
