15 January 2006 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

For some strange reason, this little known Australian movie has lately been shown on several occasions on cable TV here in Argentina. It stars a young, redhead Miranda Otto (a decade before playing Eowyn in Lord of the Rings) as a weird but lovely woman who is a struggling actress, works in a strip joint (but does not get naked herself) and has some sort of undefined telepathic affinity with horses. She ends up meeting an uptight and wealthy polo player who is the owner of a horse stable (former Spandau Ballet singer Martin Kemp) and after helping him taming his horses love soon develops between them. It's far from being a great movie, but it's eminently watchable and even upbeat.
