A good little Aussie film that below the surface quite a metaphorical film.
I thought this was a great film. If your looking for car chases, shoot outs, cops and robbers then you won't like it but I think there are enough of those out there.
The movie is set around the killing of local livestock by a mysterious 'black' creature. What makes the movie a little unusual but well worth watching is that the characters are used as the backdrop to the livestock deaths and not the other way round. Over the course of the movie we learn some of the peoples past while they are trying to find what is killing their animals. In a nutshell the the events in the movie are quite metaphorical.
Watch and you will enjoy it. Don't expect a blockbuster but still a good movie.
