"The Quiet Earth is not your utopian, sterile, futuristic sci-fi, it's not your used-future, action and adventure space opera, it's not your interstellar military space exploration show, nor is it even your dusty, sandy, post-apocalyptic renegade adventure. But for those of you who can handle the cerebral drama that marks some of the best sci-fi, The Quiet Earth is for you. There are very few films like it."
