Man to Man is a 2005 historical drama film directed by Régis Wargnier and starring Joseph Fiennes, Kristin Scott Thomas and Iain Glen. One man in a team of Victorian scientists conducting research in Africa begins to have doubts about the human cost of their mission. It was scripted by William Boyd.


In 1860, Victorian scientists capture a pygmy couple during an expedition in Central Africa. They are transported back to the United Kingdom for further study as part of research involving the theory of the evolution of man. However, the primitive outlook of the pygmies and the sophisticated methods used by the scientists, as well as the complications of an adapting to a foreign environment, make their anthropological study all the more difficult. Ultimately, as the pygmies become more absorbed to the public, major disagreements erupt culminating in a bloody and tragic confrontation.
