Interesting. Is it a comedy or a drama or both?

Sounds pretty cool! Of course, you might lose (not attract?) the large portion of the population that doesn't know who Nietzche is...even though they might actually like it if they saw it.
Can you make it slightly less specific?

How about this one Mara:

"Tricked and stranded on a third-world island by a business rival, a prudish businessman fights his way back to civilization after learning the meaning of life by screwball, philosophy quoting natives."

Director: yeah, I think that's good. With either logline, it's definitely something I would watch.

[at]Mara: Thanks for saying so. You know, the art of writing log lines is tough, but doing it for comedy is even tougher.

Thanks Jimmy, and I hope you will get the opportunity to see it, because I just sent the script off to a producer that promised to read it tomorrow. I'll keep you informed.
