The movies are different. Someone give a "popcorn-movie", to someone like action movies or science fiction but anyone no crazy romantic comedies. And there are films that just make the viewer to think and think a question: "and believe you?" "The man with the Earth" — definitely one of them.

In that sense, this film is very similar to "the Planet K-pax" with Kevin spacey. Here only "the man with the Earth" — the film chamber. No you special effects, just the Story of the protagonist in the friendly company of his peers. The story itself in itself, is rather trivial and not new, it might seem like fiction or a mental disorder the character of David Lee Smith, Yes here in terms of the film you like and the other characters, not able to confirm nor to refute, after all, you can read books... Not going into the details of the plot, you will notice that the film addresses quite a number of problems that makes it is closer to the psychological sphere than to the genre of science fiction. Here to unfortunately, raised more than reveals that wasn't make the film bad. Main the disadvantage of "the man with the Earth", on my humble opinion, is closing a definite ending (unlike the same "the Planet of Ka-peks"). In General, the film very much and deserves a solid eight.

In the film there is nothing but talk, but how are all made exciting! The action takes place in one house, even in a living for the entire film. The man tells his story before it is possible to leave their listeners and this also amazing how impossible. In General — like tale told at night. And this music,

This is one of those movies about people know, but that when the view sink in the soul. It is not the film which you can go to the cinema movie for viewing homely atmosphere, preferably in the evening, after work, study and etc. there is special effects, there is not even the usual change of scenery, the whole movie takes place in one house, actually in the same room. The narrative was divided in different panels, then the movers came, then came a Professor at this spirit, so as not to get bored. But not required, the atmosphere on the screen evokes the feeling that you do not watch movies, but you're in this room, fireplace and listen to a story. Incredibly warm, kind and the same time causing a storm of thoughts and feelings of the film. In fact, this is a parable, a fairy tale that we so loved to hear in my childhood sitting by fire.

Perhaps in all of the matter. But, strangely, I would never thought movie the minimum number of actions and any distinct events can stop me from the screen. Not just to keep, but not to let go until the last. History does not allow it, as and actors who perfectly embodied the story in life. Many of them, I never saw only added to its charm. Play here Brad pitt, George Clooney, the film is not would as it happened in the end. I watched the tape is probably just five every time fascinated. In there are so many hidden meanings, the whole film, as one big meditation on the entire history of mankind. Respectively, and about all the mistakes, wars, religion, feelings and all those things that we all seem so important, because we live only a moment. In that time, as for all eternity it's only a trifle, and all our fears are imaginary. For the person who lived 10 000 years and saw the entire human life with your own eyes, all we all like that. children. Children that are so not have learned how to learn on their mistakes. Referring to religion here shows how people earnestly believe and don't want to accept the truth, and like this the true, really is never like we own it imagined. And people are not able to accept her because they already built a kind of representation that is convenient to them. Talking about time, here very properly shown, first, that even the Millennium fleeting, if you live forever. And, secondly, how little we know that was so never-ending a long time ago. Not even though all archaeological finds, for all the historical data, our understanding of ancient times more than trying to think out and thinking — present. This is a very philosophical movie many secret thoughts, and personally I couldn't go to sleep after the first viewing, all thinking about the universe of things. I would say this film stimulates the brain in a global sense. After all really, if there was a man, no matter how it was for it all our ideals. How would have been stupid for him our ideas about past, even the future.

But despite all, it would seem interesting, closer to the finals are starting to get tired of the flow of information and imagination. And here happens to be the most "shit-kicking", the ending is totally unexpected — she makes you believe. All was to the hype, a bad joke, but... every joke has some truth.

For me it is one of favorite movies I periodically review and enjoy.
