Great Film
9 March 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"On My Own" is a great film that far too few people have seen. Judy Davis gave an excellent performance, which rightfully earned her an Australian Film Institute Award and Franco Piersanti's score is beautiful. This is a great movie which needs to be released on DVD!
