Once again, REBECCA GILLING.
5 February 1999 | by (Berlin, Deutschland.) – See all my reviews

Well, once again, an excellent performance from the brilliant actress, Rebecca Gilling. Leading an all-star cast, this hilarious satire is a must for all extreme Right Wing-Australians.

This story of love, hate and Nazism is perhaps one of the best films from Australia in a long time.

An 8/10 for Number 96.
