Overview
David Bowie plays an alien disguised as a human who is put on earth to find a way to ship water back to his dying planet.
From the same production team as the Academy Award-winning film, 'The Deer Hunter', comes Nicolas Roeg's 'The Man Who Fell To Earth', the cult science fiction classic that made David Bowie a movie star. Bowie is accompanied by a star-studded cast that includes Academy Award nominees Rip Torn ('Men In Black', 'Cross Creek'), Candy Clark ('American Graffiti') and Buck Henry ('Heaven Can Wait', 'To Die For').
