If your not Australian and you have never seen any of Ken G. Hall's movies, do yourself a favor and start with this one. If your under 40 and your Australian and you keep hearing your grandparents going on about life in the bush when they were young. Then you need to watch this film.
Dad and Dave are a father and son team that run a small farm (Selection). Ken G. Hall adapted this movie from the author Steel Rudd. This movie gives a time capsule of life in the Australian Bush between 1890's to the 1930's, lost now forever. The movie is about how Dad and Dave take on the towns folk in there own style.
One could say they are pair of country bumpkins but they always get their own way in the end and give us all a good belly laugh on the way.
On the negative side I remember the sound-track having few problems and unless it has been undated to DVD, you may have some difficulty with this side.
Ken G. Hall was great Australian director of 1930's & 1940's and this is one of great offering.
Not to be missed.
