Movie Info

After history Professor John Oldman unexpectedly resigns from the University, his startled colleagues impulsively invite themselves to his home, pressing him for an explanation. But they're shocked to hear his reason for premature retirement: John claims he must move on because he is immortal, and cannot stay in one place for more than ten years without his secret being discovered. Tempers rise and emotions flow as John's fellow professors attempt to poke holes in his story, but it soon becomes clear that his tale is as impossible to disprove as it is to verify. What starts out as a friendly gathering soon builds to an unexpected and shattering climax.

Unfortunately, it spends little time on the ideas and debate that made the original film so captivating for audiences who discovered it.

Unnecessary sequel in which its post-credit sequence confirms it as a kind of bad joke. [Full Review in Spanish]

The Man From Earth: Holocene is a sequel that is quite enjoyable, but admittedly not as strong as the first classic film.

It's hard not to wish The Man From Earth well, if only for being guided so firmly by its own star.
