Trivia

This picture's director Tom Cowan has said of this film: "As a male director making a feminist film I was threatened and challenged all the time. I remember one day we had a real showdown around the campfire with shouting, recriminations, crying . . . Just surviving the whole experience had stood me in good stead for the future. On the other hand, there were times of euphoria, of close friendships. I'm sure it's easy to underestimate the power of the bush itself. Living and working there for five weeks, it had a big effect on all of us. I always knew it would be a volatile situation, and I hoped to get that into the film". See more »

A fun romp of a film.
7 November 2001 | by (State College PA) – See all my reviews

It's been years since I saw this film. BRAVO network used to show it fairly regularly back in the early 80's. Yes, it is somewhat silly at times, but it held my attention from start to "Weekend"-style finish. Basically good fun. A 6 or 7 out of 10.
