Strong Aussie film that presses big emotional buttons
12 November 1998 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This film really triggered an emotional button in me. Although I picked certain flaws with parts of the scripting, the basic tale of the child who refused to speak after the death of her father, and would only communicate by singing really moved me to tears. Rachel Griffith's performance was exceptionally strong. My entire family aged from 9 to 50 cried buckets at this one, yet I can't accuse the film of being manipulative; just a good strong theme supported by great actors. The Aussie film industry is really coming of age, and as more big studio casting agents snap up our actors it lets the world see just what we have to offer.
