This film is what real cinema should be. A great script, great direction, great photography and great acting. Although the story is simple the character studies from the superb cast keep you glued to the screen.
I recently put this in a competition for a personal top 10 movies of all time. I also included that other Aussie masterpiece "Newsfront".
