There is not a lot wrong with this movie. The entire thing seems authentic
meaning you feel like you're in Australia in 1915. You are living on a
farm, running in a race and ultimately in a war.
What is also very extraordinary is that there is not really a lot that happens, there is barely a plot. But it doesn't matter, because Peter Weir is a master storyteller. The actors are all superb and your heart may hurt at the climax - mine did.
Unforgettable, like all great movies.
