This is a nice little surprise that I found through a google referral while browsing movie sites one night. I’d never heard of it, and I’ll bet you haven’t either. It’s a story of a teacher who invites some friends to his going away party at a lodge. He tells them he’s 14,000 years old and was once a caveman. As you can imagine, no one believes him. But, as they try to get him to admit it’s not true, they draw him into giving accounts of his relationships of historical figures, and describing his personal observances of famous events.
The story is simple, but the acting is superb, and his explanations stand up to all the attempts to trip him up. Soon, he actually has his friends convinced that his story is true. However, one or two of them, are so shaken by the realization, that he has to lie to them to get them to calm down.
There’s a real stunner in this story, but you’ll have to watch the movie to experience it. It will be worth it.
