It's still a WONDERFUL movie...more comments, please!
...especially from Aussies who know this film well; it'd be great if we could somehow attract more attention to this beautiful little classic- and if we could somehow convince a decent DVD distributor to get their hands on the original negative and give it the treatment it deserves: properly framed, NOT faded or damaged-looking, MAYBE even a commentary- if the likes of 'Long Weekend' and 'Careful He Might Hear You' (admittedly both Panavision films, which SB was NOT, so with more incentive to get them out for fans to see them in the correct ratio) can get careful transfers with extras added, there should be no reason why 'Storm Boy' is treated with less seriousness or respect!
