My brief review of the film
30 November 2005 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

A downbeat and joyless drama, the film's politics are dull, but there some strong themes running throughout, and there is also a strong central drama concerning a marriage between persons with opposite views of life and the world. It is a shame that there is not more time dedicated to Finch and Ure's interactions, because the side of the film dealing with politics and the lives of locals just is not handled too well. The lack of background and setting detail is no help, but this side of the film simply fails to do more than what merely is adequate, and it is done in a manner so dreary that it is hard to swallow. Overall the film is okay viewing, but it had the potential to be more. Finch and Ure have some strong moments together but definitely not enough.
