I squirmed as I watched this movie as it reminded me of my past. I belonged to a small town Fire Brigade that was more than a tad unprofessional especially in the way we wore (or not wore) our uniforms to a fire. If you come or have come from a small town you will love this movie. The deliberate lack of pace is it's strength. The stellar cast of well known Australian actors do a wonderful job of portraying characters in a small town. The deliberate use of brown in the movie colouring adds to the atmosphere. Using Phillip Adams ( a well known atheist) as God added an ironic touch.Be prepared to let the movie develop at it's own pace. It you are in a hurry don't watch it as you will miss the point.Enjoy!!
