Movie Info

In the tradition of such psychologically-charged sci-fi outings as The Next One (1982) and K-PAX (2001) comes the cerebral science fiction opus The Man From Earth (2007). The story concerns Professor John Oldman, a scientist who summons a group of associates to a cabin one freezing night, and strikes them with a fantastic revelation: he is not a traditional human, but a 14,000 year-old immortal, who has survived centuries of evolution from the Cro-Magnon Era to the present. In the hours to follow, Professor Oldman's earth-shaking assertion about himself challenges the men on spiritual, scientific and historical levels. But the most incredible is yet to come - an even more astonishing truth in which the men's discussions culminate.

    A man departing the company of his friends reveals something unexpected before going: "I'm 14,000 years old." The friends all just so happen to be professors at a university ... and yet none of them seriously delve into this wild claim. They all sit down and have a nice, calm talk about it and he's allowed to simply make the assertion. No hard questions, no, none at all, and the story gets even wilder from there. An interesting proposition let go.
