a lost Australian epic
22 February 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

What a gorgeous EPIC film! This is one of the Australian Film Industry's most beautifully made really BIG films of the 70s...and also one of its almost completely forgotten. Made at a time when there were many period piece films THE IRISHMAN is actually the very best of them. Somewhere between Picnic At hanging Rock and Gallipoli Australia musty have produced 20 horsey movies set in the country. Sadly, in its day, it was just another film, but seen apart from the mob, this one is the most perfectly photographed, heartfelt, optimistic and realistic family features made in this country. Unrelentingly exquisite to watch, with engaging and genuine characters and a sensational cast, THE IRISHMAN is the one Australian film from the late 70s that deserves a major re discovery. A widescreen DVD of this film will be late entry masterpiece into everyone's collection. Apparently the archive in Australia is about to produce a new 35mm print and I can only say it will be one of their most satisfying parts of the collection possible. It may not be available internationally for a while, but collectors from the US and UK and European countries should track this down and buy a copy. One day.
