The whole thing came over as the worst kind of middle-aged fantasy.

Only bearable for throwing out a number of alluring literary ideas, otherwise it's bogged down by an overload of symbolism.

Audience Reviews for Homo Faber (Voyager)


This was actually a pretty good movie, even though it had a pretty gross twist towards the end. The acting wasn't great, but the story was interesting enough to allow me to overlook it.
