the amorous adventures of God-knows-who
16 December 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Look, viewed today this is probably a masterpiece or a travesty depending on your affection for TV level 19th century antics in Australia (see NED KELLY) however, this one is a marriage between MOLL FLANDERS and TOM JONES Aussie britches style. Visually on a big screen ELIZA FRASER is great fun and with a big amused audience it plays well....but...at 130 minutes it needed and still does 40 minutes chopped out of it. Read that cast! Every actor not on TV in the 70s in Oz, and a few rounded up in the UK each merrily wined dined dressed and "thesped" at each other for well paid weeks on end of production time. Shot at a rural colonial gold rush theme park called Sovereign Hill, a PAINT YOUR WAGON looking tourist destination (like the Griswolds would accidentally go to) ELIZA FRASER is a 'bawdy romp' which depicts a few too many hairy rumps among the wenches, tankards and buggies. A lot of it is filmed at night, apparently adding to its atmosphere. It's fun, but so is rum for about an hour. Then....
