Nice Sand Castles!
27 February 1999 | by (Cairns Australia) – See all my reviews

I'll cross many a crab infested tropical island stream to support Australian film but I can't find much to recommend Dear Claudia which somehow got a recent release in our multiplexes.

In spite of starring two favourites Bryan Brown and in a much smaller role Derborah Mailman, Dear Claudia is a sunny but fundamentally forgettable flick in the old geyser gets young bird on tropical island category.

Walter (Bryan Brown) has had the hots for local bar tender Claudia for years. He's the local postman in a small Queensland town; a frustrated nice guy postman who flys the local mail run. Claudia (Aleksandra Vujcic) has a troubled past it seems and together they are stranded on a deserted island when the plane is downed in a storm.

They do the palm tree, love in paradise thing similar to Anne Heche and Harrison Ford in the recently released Six Days Seven Nights but a weak script and a wooden, sometimes strange performance from Vujcic leave this one permanently stranded between high and low tide.

There are some very nice sand castles though and Bramston Island looks pretty nice.
