But turning out something like this after a pretty much flawless track record? Ridiculous drop in quality.

Although mute, the alien possesses empathetic and healing abilities that quickly endear him to the locals. The movie does have an overarching storyline involving a pair of intergalactic bounty hunters that are pursuing our hero, but much of the running time is spent on vignettes where the alien interacts with various people. These encounters give the story a great deal of humanism and no small amount of socio-political observation. I wouldn't call Brother From Another Planet an outstanding masterwork, but it's an interesting art house production that should pique the interest of sci-fi buffs.
