I second this. Tell us your thoughts on it, and :welcome: again, 295. :)

The basic concept that has been explored in this movie is about a guy who has walked the earth for 14,000 years. Currently he is a proffesor under the name of John Oldman.  The whole setting of this movie is his goodbye party being given by his colleagues i.e fellow college professors and this is where it gets interesting. There is a biologist, an anthropologist, a faithful christian,an archeologist and a psychologist. And so, this amazing concept is investigated through all these angles.

What i personally felt was this concept had a LOT of potential which was somehow not achieved. The dialogues are good. The cast has also done a great job.

So overall, though i was a tad bit disappointed the movie still is WORTH giving a watch!
