Seventies' nostalgia - as opposed to entertainment!
16 June 2002 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Aussie movie-making in the seventies, except for the odd gem such as PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK was in recess and this non-event of a film was typical of the period.

Wendy Hughes, an actress I rather admire, plays magazine editor Melanie Hilton, emmeshed in a web of her own making. However, watching her running the emotional gauntlet as she attempts to deal with her lover, her former lover and her pregnancy - in no particular order, does not make for scintillating entertainment, HOWEVER competent the acting levels.

The one redeeming feature, it had a mercifully short run-time, just 78 minutes in Australia!
