Rough Diamond
3 September 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film may not be everyone, but for lovers of Australian cinema this film is well worth the effort. Yes the acting is a little stilted and the sound quality can be poor but it was made in the middle of winter in one of the most isolated spots on earth. The claustrophobia of the first half of the film is not easy to watch but it is completely genuine and makes complete sense in terms of the story and in terms of the conditions the makers of the film Similarly the hand held camera-work is not a stylistic tic but an absolute necessity of location and budget. The story is simple and unfolds slowly, but the harsh and beautiful location brings an intensity and a poetry that is quietly moving. This is not spectacular film making in the ordinary but it is nonetheless a courageous and beautiful film.
