Number 96 encapsulates the best of the 1970s TV series of the same name
which has been a major influence on more recent comedy shows like Kath
& Kim. Number 96 also captures the flavour of the 1970s in Australia
which was a transitional time from the values of the 195os represented
by Dorry Evans to the coming of age of the baby boomers most strongly
portrayed by Don Finlayson. The different values are not, however,
placed in conflict, but are presented as a continuum comically sharing
the same world.
As the movie is about the lives of the occupants of a block of flats in Paddington, the film is fast paced and holds your attention as you jump from a snippet of the life of one character to another which are all finally connected through various events at the flats. Apparently some viewers became so engrossed in the TV series that the makers received requests from viewers for a a flat at Number 96.
Number 96 is without doubt the most pathetic film ever made in Australia. It is so pathetic that it is brilliant. Although the film makers did not intend to do it, they have created a messterpiece ? (masterpiece).
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.
