The story of a woman who begins to lose her sight following an accident.
13 November 2001 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a brilliant work about sensory deprivation. Cox portrays the fear and uncertainty of loss of sight throughout his visual style. The Australians, notably Peter Weir, Bruce Beresford and Fred Schepisi have an astounding control and use of cinematic language to portray the senses and emotions of their characters.

I recommend other Aussie picks such as Picnic at Hanging Rock, Gallipoli, The year of living dangerously, Breaker Morant, Devil's Playground, The chant of Jimmy Blacksmith.
