Plot:A man wakes up to find himself literally alone in the world, and goes about trying to find other survivors, as well as to find out what happened. He suspects that a government research project he was involved in had something to do with the disappearance of everyone. Eventually he finds several other people, and once they begin to trust each other they try to figure out why they were left on earth.

Very good film. Unexpected gem.

I have seen many good sci-fi films. Since the late 60's I've read a lot of hard-core sci-fi (not the fantasy genre) as well. Most, if not all, of the sci-fi classics.

"The Quiet Earth" amazed me with it's highly effective compact story rendering. No big budget sets or stars needed - the actors did a fine job. The directorial and photographic artistry of the production really shines through. Very appropriate sound track as well.

The main character's emotions and situation are turned upside down in more ways than one. I won't spoil it for you but the ending was awesome, in a cosmologically contemplative way. Students of high-energy physics will view this as a cautionary tale.

If you liked "Contact", "2001: A Space Odyssey", "Childhood's End", or "Stranger in a Strange Land" you'll enjoy this production.

To put things in perspective I thought "Demon Seed", "Forbidden Planet", and "Colossus: The Forbin Project", to name a few, were also wonderful but under-rated films.
