An understated masterpiece that wonderfully engages with its warm and loving human interactions. It doesn't need any overblown dramatics to tell its deeply affecting story of a family re-unification. Great performances from everyone involved.
Dennis Cord is terrific as the returning brother, whilst Micki Cammilerri is probably the standout as the compassionate and sympathetic wife and mother. The script is extremely well written and is all the more effective for not being overly dramatic or overblown. The film evokes an Adelaide suburb in transition at a particular point in time that could be anywhere in Australian suburbia at that time.
Absolutely recommended for anyone seeking a REAL film experience.
