Short and dramatic story of conflicting brothers
1 July 2001 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

Wheel of Fate is a different to the majority of films make the Rank during this period. It comes from a different studio. It comes across as a shorter, more direct film with less stage-setting and plot development and a focus on getting the story across.

The story is about two very different brothers, who run a small garage, owned by their eccentric and bed ridden father. They fall into conflict over a nightclub singer.

The film is a bit like reading a short story - expect it to happen quickly.
