The River Yarra takes the garbage out of the city, Melbourne, and into the ocean.
18 April 1999 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It's the river our two teenage boys want to sail on for their ticket out of a restless hot summer where their naivety is abused by a local gang of red necks out to change the world with their right wing views. The gang offer the boys a trip to an African island where white supremacists will rule and gain wealth. The only catch is that they need to come up with $500 to join the boat load of ignorant bastards. The film chronicles their hopeless search for the money and their final desperate act to be part of the dreams. The boys know no better, racial issues has never entered their conscience and they only want a fair go in life. The film has important issues to deal with but does so in a clumsy manner. The dialogue is stilted along with the unconvincing performances. There are a few brilliance in direction but the image loses power once the mouths are opened.
