Travelling North (1987)
17 June 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

David Williamson's Travelling North directed by Carl Scultz (Careful He Might Hear You)Is a very good Australian film it stars the late Leo Mckern as Frank + Julia Blake as Frances, Frank suffers a heart attack and moves up to Port Douglas they move next door to nosy Neighbour Freddie played by none other than Graham Kennedy who says funny lines like "Don't try the estuary the last fish was so lonely he gave himself up" Henri Szeps plays Saul a doctor who advises Frank on his condition. in the end Frank + his Mistress Marry + then they go to a art exhibition. You'll enjoy it if you watch a lot of Australian Films like myself.
