An outstanding Australian drama
11 November 1998 | by (NZ) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie once about 17 years ago, and have been wanting to buy a copy of the video ever since. Judy Davis & Bryan Brown give outstanding performances. In summary, a drama about a man's search for a woman he thinks he loves and wants to help.
