Legendary director Francis Ford Coppola returns to the director's chair after a ten-year hiatus with this adaptation of Romanian author Mircea Eliade's tome detailing the arduous journey of a professor whose life is thrown into chaos as World War II looms ominously on the horizon. When the 70-year-old scholar is struck by lightning, his age begins to reverse as his mind grows infinitely more brilliant. Now determined to understand the origins of language and consciousness, the fugitive professor leads authorities on a wild chase through Romania, Switzerland, Malta, and India. Tim Roth, Bruno Ganz, Alexandra Maria Lara, and Marcel Iures star in an ambitious low-budget drama trumpeted by Zoetrope as a "return to personal filmmaking" for the revered Godfather director. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Powerful!March 1, 2009
This is one of the best movies I've seen recently. My wife and I are movie buffs, who currently own about 2,000 DVDs. So, when I say a movie is as incredible as this one is, it's not to be taken lightly. This movie was extremely artistic,as you would expect from Coppola, and Tim Roth gives a dynamic performance. If you are looking for that one "Wow!" movie, that will leave you in awe, wanting to turn around and watch it again, and talking about it for days afterwards; then I highly recommend this movie!
I would recommend this to a friend
