The Man from Earth is a 2007 science fiction film written by Jerome Bixby and directed by Richard Schenkman. The film stars David Lee Smith as John Oldman, the protagonist of the story. The screenplay for this movie was conceived by Jerome Bixby in the early 1960s and was completed on his death bed in April 1998, making it his final piece of work.[2] The movie gained recognition in part for being widely distributed through Internetpeer-to-peer networks and its producer publicly thanked users of these networks for this. The film was later adapted by Schenkman into a stage play of the same name.

The plot focuses on John Oldman, a departing university professor who claims to be aCro-Magnon (or Magdalenian caveman) who has somehow survived for over 14,000 years. The only setting is in and around Oldman's house during his farewell party, with the plot advancing through intellectual arguments between Oldman and his fellow faculty members. The movie is comprised almost entirely of dialogue.

Dünyalı ismiyle bilinen 2007 yapımı bu film taşınmak üzere son kalan eşyalarını toplamakta olan john oldman, kendisini ziyarete gelen arkadaşlarına bir şekilde laf arasında 14.000 yaşında olduğunu söyler. Odada bulunan antropolog, teolog, biyolog ve psikiyatrist arkadaşları çeşitli sorularla bu iddiayı çürütmeye çalışırlar. tek mekanda geçip, diyalog üzerine bu kadar yaratıcı ve sürükleyici bir film daha izlemedim.  Filme dair çok derin analizlere girmek istemiyorum, sadece izleyin.  Sonunu da Mencken'in çok güzel sözüne atfederek bağlayayım yorumumu; "a philosopher is a blind man in a dark room looking for a black cat which isn't there. a theologian is the one who finds it.."


meali de şöyledir,

"filozof, karanlık bir odada, olmayan bir kara kediyi arayan kör bir adamdır; teolog ise o kediyi bulan adamdır.."

sevgiyle kalın.
