A movie about karma, written by a Buddhist but having nothing overtly to do with Buddhism. The actors all play their roles well and the intensity of their emotions simply leaves one breathless. Having watched this movie about 10 times, I learn something new about myself every single time I watch it. This is one of the most traggic love stories ever written. It might leave you in tears but there is something about it that is undenyable true and real. The girl's character is uplifting and her realism is inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars A review of the film HOMO FABER Aug. 25 2009
By Harald Jan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The film Homo Faber is based upon the classic bestseller book by the same name written by the Swiss writer Max Frisch and adapted for the screen by screenwriters Rudi Wurlitzer and Volker Schløndorff with Schløndorff as director. The story of Homo Faber, meaning "the man who creates his own destiny" begins in 1957 but make convincingly flashbacks in sepia tone to the war years in Zurich Switzerland where Faber meets the young Jewish girl Hannah and fall in love with her. Hannah gets pregnant with Faber, tells him about the good news and discovers to her disbelief that Faber sees the pregnancy as very inconvenient to him now that he has received a tempting business proposal to head the building of a hydro electric dam in one of the third world countries. Hannah gets an emotional chock and rejects Faber from the bottom of her heart. In anger and disappointment she now turns to Joachim (played by August Zirner) a common student friend of theirs for support and he marries the pregnant Hannah. (But Faber does not know this then)With a psychological thriller-like opening the story has set the tragic undercurrent which runs through the rest of the film like a dark river.

The role of Faber is genuinely well played by the American actor Sam Shepard. Faber is a man of sciences who believes only in what is calculable and rational, he distrusts emotions and those things happening by chance.

On a flight from Caracas, Venezuela to New York Faber's plane has to ditch down in the Mexican desert due to fire in two of the plane's four propeller engines. While in the Mexican desert Faber coolly opens his travel typewriter and sits down to write a letter of goodbye to his old New York girl friend Ivy (played with conviction by Deborah-Lee Furness). One of the fellow (and surviving) passengers is Herbert Henche (played by Dieter Kirchlechner) who happens to be the brother of Joachim from the student days in Zurich. Henche tells Faber that Joachim now owns a tobacco plantation in Central America and Faber decides to join him. Together they travel back to Central America to find Joachim. On arrival they sadly discover that Joachim has taken his own life. Upon returning to New York Faber is surprised to know that his old flame Ivy has created a special welcoming dinner for two in his apartment (she had a spear key) and she pushes Faber to make a commitment to her. This however is Faber's worst nightmare and he flees. He instantly books a ticket on a passenger ship headed for France. On board Faber meets the young and exciting woman Sabeth (played charmingly by Julie Delpy) and is instantly attracted to her. They fall in love and Faber offers to drive her to Rome where she will study art. In Italy they live out their romance among beautiful buildings and art. But now the dark undercurrent in the theme forces its way through and in a chocking revelation Faber now discovers that Sabeth is actually his daughter with Hannah, the unborn child he once, according to Hannah, "found inconvenient" to have and rejected. With an ugly twist of faith Faber takes Sabeth with him to Greece for a hollyday; it will prove to be their last together. Sabeth dies abruptly; Faber by chance meets Hannah again, also in Greece. There is a brief, but dark reunion between them as Hanna learn about Faber's involvement with Sabeth, their common child.

The film Homo Faber is a fiest for the eyes, beautifully shot in many countries on three continents. With stunning sceneries like the ones of the four engine air plane, the wide fields in Italy and inside the Louvre Museum in Paris, just to mention a few. With his book Homo Faber, Max Frisch re-created a universal theme; the filmed version of the book extends this best seller to an even wider audience. Five shiny stars for a great tallent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful... but heartbreaking! Oct. 24 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
I am a great fan of Julie Delpy, which was my main reason for purchasing this video. "Voyager" is a theatrical masterpiece, unlike any other that I have ever seen before. Ms. Delpy gave a stellar performance as Sabeth, in a very emotional and beautiful role.
I absolutely love this video, and I could not be more happier that I decided to purchase it. Yet, by the same token, I must admit I was not quite prepared for the ending... It struck me as sharply, as an unexpected bolt of lightning. Although it was heartbreaking, I must admit that you also are left with the profound feeling that it truly could not have any ended any other way.
A beautiful film, one to cherish for a lifetime. I am sure that, once you have watched "Voyager", one will never view their lives, in quite the same way, ever again. But be certain to have a box of tissues with you... By the time this movie has finished, you will need them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mindsweepingly beautiful--A keeper Aug. 20 2010
By By n By - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Without going much further into detail about the storyline that was previously given by someone else, I'd like to comment on the overall concept of the movie and its main characters. Beautifully shot on location in various locales in Europe helped to give the characters more depth in their surroundings. Sam Shepard and Julie Delpy were very convincing as tender lovers in this haunting and thought provoking story.
In reality, this subject matter would naturally have herendous repercussions. Though its characters are gripped by what has happened, the film makes you FEEL for the two lovers and the girl's mother. Total escapism for the senses yet mind blowing!
I saw this film about 7 years ago on cable tv and later purchased the video. I am so
happy that it has finally been released on DVD! I have now purchased this format and
anticipate seeing the deleted scences, etc. It's near the top of my all time favorite films!

4.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking film Aug. 6 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
"Voyager" has the look and feel of a foreign film, yet its dialogue is in English (chiefly because of Sam Shepard's lead role). All the more to make it accessible to viewers of very though-provoking cinema. It starts out as a look at the 1950s man-of-science, played by Shepard. An engineer of dams on a UNESCO project, he quickly steps into a series of coincidences that circle tighter and tighter into his past. Along the way he meets a beautiful, innocent young girl (Julie Delpy) and a love story develops, neatly but deftly, aboard a steamer to France and a car trip through Europe to Greece. The film's themes are coincidence and the final reckoning of life's events, be they random or chosen. The sometimes dizzying effects of what we call "destiny" ring out loudly in "Voyager", perhaps too harshly at times, but with skillful scene cutting and casting, it manages to offer a sobering ending without being maudlin. As with most non-blockbuster films, the score is understated yet touching. Delpy is just right for her role as Sabeth, the fresh girl away on adventures, yet adds a touch of melancholy that some of today's Hollywood actresses lack. I wish she'd have skipped things like "American Werewolf in Paris". And Shepard plays Walter Faber with expert detachment. He's the older man, devoted to all things proven by technology, whose world comes apart as he tries to find love with Sabeth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Production with Perfect Casting Jan. 3 2000
By Allen H. Sinsheimer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
I think that this movie is so good that it almost defies meaningful description. Sam Shepherd plays the disemotional professional Faber, seemingly childless and the detached manner of the Charles Aznavor role in "Shoot the Piano Player". Yet, he is forced into an emotional involvment (even prior to the realization that Julie Delpy is his daughter) by his need to protect such a delicate creature from the dangers of life, hitchiking across Europe and from less-pure young men. Every nuance seems thought out carefully, such as his picking the name of Sabet, which is close to Sabbath or the day of rest in several religions. The story, which is retold in other places in the reviews at this site, is simply amazing and reflects on the most personal basis how one person's strong will can affect the lives of so many.
Like Aznavor in "Shoot the Piano Player", Faber cannot remain aloof and the sadness cannot be alieviated by any human actions of which he could have taken to remain uninvolved. Yet, this is not an ultimately sad story, in my view. There is something so strong and uplifting in the short experience of Faber with his daughter, one believes he will go on to become more into life's experiences after the movie ends.
One final note, I don't think the movie really has a 1950's feel, the time that it takes place ; it is much more of a late 60's to 70's movie in how the characters act.
