This is an excellent film based on true experience in a harsh environment. So much better than most of the films of today. We need more of this type of film. It is not a feel good film only either as it is based on facts. True aborigines are fantastic people and it is a pity more and meaningful assistance wasn't provided way back then. They were a skillful and talented race from which we could have learned much and should have been treated with much more dignity. If only they had been incorporated in the decision making of how they would liked to have been treated things for them today might be different. The acting in the film is great and the casting excellent. The beginnings of some of the earlier acting careers of later familiar faces is great to witness. The comradeship and values (apart from those towards the aborigines) of the time is something that is not always evident today.
