Ginger Meggs
2 January 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is an absolute Australian classic. It's up there with Fortress (Rachael Ward).

I had this on video tape when I was just a girl about 15 years ago. I LOVED it so much and so did my entire family and any friends who stopped by and viewed it.

It's such a tragedy that this is not available on DVD.

It is definitely bright (but not too bright), and a little weird and wonderful but that's why I loved it.

It's rare to see a family friendly movie these days that's full of innocence and adventure. This is a must see!..............But, good luck finding a copy of it.
