Richard B. Shull,
Five bittersweet vignettes that span the entire human history about five different men, all called Hector and played by the same actor (Robin Williams), who find themselves at a critical juncture in their lives. In prehistoric times, Hector lives in peace with his wife and their little son and daughter in a cave on a quite uninhabited island somewhere in the north. His world is shattered when a group of foreign pagan raiders led by a young chieftain and a somewhat pacifistic priest arrive there. In Ancient Rome, Hector is a loyal well-treated slave of Lucinnius, a somewhat naive big trader with political connections. When his latest shipment fails to arrive and the local corrupt governor Cyprion refuses to lend him money for his further endeavors due to bad omen that a professional soothsayer saw while reading the future from a chicken liver, he is ruined.

Now here we have one of those movies that started out with a great but very-nearly-impossible-to-film idea, and then just ran out of budget and steam. Very ambitious and unusual, and Robin Williams' performance is pretty solid, but it just doesn't work. Worth watching if you're looking for something really off the beaten path. If you watch carefully, you can catch a glimpse of Ewan McGregor in his first ever movie role, as one of the crusaders.
