enjoyable, realistic little film, great scenic photography
12 October 1999 | by (Hobart, Tasmania) – See all my reviews

This film- of -the -book was directed by the book's author, local wunderkind [in his own lunchtime] Richard Flanagan. It was a big hit here in Tasmania, where it's set, and it's a good little story of a postwar migrant woman and her father's struggles in "pioneer" conditions in a work camp on Tasmania's rugged West Coast, and later in Hobart. Great photography and scenery. Anyone interested in this part of the world will enjoy it. A worthy addition to the handful of feature films made in Tasmania. N.B. ATTENTION: Location scouts.....
