Storyline

Black comedy about a blind man, Martin, who takes photographs as "proof" that the world really is as others describe it to him. The film explores his antagonistic relationships with Celia, who cleans and cooks for him and habitually rearranges the furniture in the house, and with Andy, a mate he thinks he can trust.

Goofs

The first time Martin enters his house, he gets surprised by Celia sitting and making a noise. However, since she is smoking, he could have smelled the smoke as soon as he had opened the door. Later in the movie, he is suggested to have a pretty sensitive nose for a perfume a lady is wearing in the veterinarian's office. See more »

Yes, Russell Crowe Is In This Movie
3 December 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Having noticed a film crew shooting in the gardens at the end of my street, I eventually realized the film was "Proof". I thought I better check it out, and was pleasantly surprised with the result.

I knew little about either Hugo Weaving or Russell Crowe at the time and thought they were both very good in it, especially Weaving. Like most Australian movies it was filmed on a low budget, and on this occasion produced very good results.

If you enjoyed this for reasons other than the "Crowe Factor", you should try some other Aussie films.

Eg. Malcolm (It's An Unreal Movie)
