Trivia

Director Ken Hannam once said of the bad weather that affected this film's shoot: "It was incredible! We just had to chuck the schedule out of the window. The thing that hurt most was that it was a film about heat and somehow we had to retain that feeling. The twenty-minute drive to the shearing shed would take two hours there and two hours back. We were always covered in mud. It was particularly hard on Matt Carroll, the production manager who was really acting as field producer...The dry, parched areas we'd seen during the recces were muddy lakes. So much of the film was improvised around what we had at our disposal. It's a big tribute to cast and crew that it worked out at all". See more »

A truely great film

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".
