Cactus is a film that you walk away from thinking you would like to see it again; I think because it ends so abruptly. The film moves rather slow and throughout I wanted more. More dialogue more emotion I wanted more of the main characters Colo and Robert. I really liked Robert Menzies performance he could say so much in his expressions and did not have to talk much and there is little talking in this film. The landscapes and sceneries are filmed beautifully; it makes you want to head to Australia it is gorgeous. The love scenes between Robert and Colo were very dark you could not see anything I think that should have been filmed differently because the love scenes add very little to the movie. Also, there are others around friends they add little I guess in some ways they are there for narrative. I have not really decided if I liked this film or not because it is just there like many of the cactus sitting around in Robert's green house. Cactus expressed a lot of emotion in scenes but rating the movie as a whole it loses a lot of it appeal.
