John Hargreaves spends most of his time dumbfounded and `lacking `initiative'. Comical relief comes in the form of an impatient Chris Haywood, who plays the whingeing, bludging Cockney removalist - anxious to get onto his next job.
Filmed mostly in two locations - a police station and a flat - the story may sound dreary; anything but intriguing. It may also sound dark and violent. The truth is it is utterly compelling. This is an ensemble cast that plays their respective parts almost without fault. The screenplay makes an easy transfer to the silver screen and is a worthy addition the varied vaults of Australian cinema history.
