Director Tim Burstall once said of this film: "Stork was the first of the so-called "ocker" comedies...Its social milieu is the Carlton counter-culture of the 60s. The targets of its humor are the social goals and values of the middle-classes - conformity, ambition, marriage, the pretensions of the corporate world or the academic and art establishments. To everyone's amazement, Stork turned out to be the first Australian commercial feature success since the 50s." See more »
An interesting Australian film made in the early 70's mode
This is an interesting comedy produced during the resurgence of the Australian film industry in the early 70's. Although the film maybe hard to understand to those from other nations due to local slang and references, the film which by todays standards may seem a little corney, is a genuine comedy about a the very tall Stork who is a communist, a dreamer and a virgin who spends his time worrying about catching every type of illness imaginable. The storyline is fair and the acting acceptable. A good way to waste a hour and a half if you don't take it too seriously.
