Being Human

DVD - 2010

Rate this:
In five distinct yet cleverly interlocked roles, tells of a man who is a cave dweller, a Roman slave, a medieval wayfarer, a Portuguese nobleman shipwrecked in Africa and a modern Manhattanite whose homelife has hit the rocks. Each character reaches for survival, love, belonging; for all the things that made humankind draw together in the first place. Each is a human being faced with an unforgettable and universal challenge: Being Human.

I loved Robin Williams but this offering is mainly a disappointment. I think it tries to teach viewers philosophical lessons but it just never quite conveys the message in any meaningful enough way to make any real impact. Leaves you longing for the message that it ultimately failed to deliver. I would not want to watch this again as several of the stories just seem pointless, a movie adrift that rights itself somewhat with the last vignette. By then I was just glad it was over.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

Watched this a long time ago, couldn't remember it very well so borrowed it to watch again. Kinda wish I hadn't bothered - watching it a second time reminded me why I didn't remember much of it. It's kinda meh. Some segments reel you in (the first two), others are very bland and make you wonder why on earth they were included? (the next two) Still, nice to see the full circle idea: losing family, ultimately (after many centuries) getting them back. But what was all that about the shoes? Walking a mile in another man's moccasins or something?!
