Brilliant classic cinema
11 January 2004 | by (melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is such a classic. I saw it first as a child and then the other night as an adult and I just thought it was magnificent. The way the aboriginal is portrayed remains modern even after a few decades. It is brilliant stuff.
