Fantastic Sweet film experience
24 November 2012 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

saw this on TV back then. Luckily I recorded it...For sure somebody should do a quality DVD. Seems to me it would be a hit. Also read comment that =David Gulpilil made his movie debut as 'fingerbone' Bill." really, did not realize that. Have a good time. See my list for similar movies. BT NOT want to spoil the experience but seems IMDb requires 10 lines so I might mention the Pelicans. Truly amazing how they got them to grow and preform. Really really cool. . Yeah it is slow paced but what a nice pace. Pretty much a family movie. Got some good points, actually can be interpreted with some moral / spiritual issues . phew got the 10 lines........
