cloudy with a chance of fear
12 March 2010 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

There's something deeply real about this film, a next to totally forgotten Australian drama. Judy Davis (in her first feature role since "My Brilliant Career") creates a character with so much depth and straight reality, she'd have to work against it not to draw you in. Writer/director John Duigan creates a world populated by very real individuals, though not certainly likable ones. He goes for a slow-drawn, realist approach that - while leaving the visual appearance a little flat - places you quite exactly in these lives.

I went along with these characters, let them take me wherever they cared to. "Winter of Our Dreams" has this quality of it, this 60s/70s hangover quality of not knowing what really matters anymore. And if that's not something you've been feeling for as long as I have, you'll have a lot of trouble understanding the character of Lou. But let it sink in. It'll get to you.
