Trivia

Director Tom Jeffrey adjusted the film's script to the film's Macclesfield, Adelaide Hills shooting location which was selected as the main filming location for the movie. The film's source novel 'The Reckoning' by Hugh Atkinson actually featured a quarry in the country town where the book was set. The Macclesfield town had an old brick-works so Jeffrey adjusted the film script accordingly. See more »

Great sleeper
28 October 2001 | by (melbourne, australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the top films of the late seventies. It is a real sleeper, as not many people will have had the opportunity to witness its charms in an actual cinema. I believe it shows great insight into character and the human condition. John Waters gives a finely restrained performance and the balance of tragedy to comedy is deftly worked. A terrific piece along the possible lines of Whistle Down the Wind - Bryan Forbes film starring Alan Bates. Well worth the effort. Enjoy your cinema. Andy
