My Views:

Today, I am going to introduce you, one of my all time favourite movie...

Yeah.. I know we all are from the Earth... But this Hero of this film admits being witnessed a growth and development of Human race.. by living 14000 years on THE EARTH...


You need to imagine a movie, with only one location throughout. Only 07 characters. Discussing and revealing life's secret of one of them. In a room with very low light and no any lust. Everyone will think these are not the ingredients of "One of the favourites of all times."

Off course Not.

Until, it's written by Jerome Biskby, Directed by Richard Schenkman and played by 7 Brilliant actors.

Film released in 2007, Story starts with goodbye party for Professor John Oldman, hardly in mid thirties, Who is retiring early from teaching profession. Six professors and Girl student joins the party. All six professors are highly knowledgeable in there respective fields. And all of sudden professor John Oldman put forward a theory, that he is working on some book and why won't they discuss a topic, considering He has voyaged his life on the earth for about 14000 years after he stopped aging at certain age.

Bingo..

All fellow professors engage deeply in this mysterious and ever new theory or story. They start interrogating him with based on various Scientific, Historical, Social scenarios trying to prove that this theory is wrong. And simultaneously Prof. Oldman reveals his great life by answering their questions and points.

The discussion gets heated, but no one gets to succeed in proving his life as the wrong theory. He also reveals that he had lived in greatest histories of Human being. And the biggest revelation opens, when he admits he had been one of the greatest Person in history (I won't spoil the mystery by telling who he was.) That point takes the discussion to the peak of story pulling viewers along with it.


Is this just a game of wits?  Is he pulling a prank?  Has a lost his mind?  Is he telling the truth?

Just watch the movie for Breathtaking End.

Cinematography is simple, but incredible. As, discussion between characters goes to next level, light changes from evening to dark. One of them lights fireplace and discussion heats up along with heat of Fire place. All of the actors have played their part with devotion. I haven't seen their roles in other movies. Even actor, David Smith Lee who has played role of Prof. Oldman is not so popular either.

But you know, for creating something great, U need not use Extra ordinary or difficult things. U just need to creatively use simple things.

Note: This was the last screenplay written by Jerome Biskby before his death. He just took from The Earth, after being Godfather of "The Man From The Earth".

My suggestion is to just watch before u Die..

Thanks a lot for reading this.
