An excellent Australian film
30 March 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I just watched this last night and it is a very heartfelt, interesting Australian movie.

It's a fantastic break from some recent Australian slop like 'Deck Dogz', 'Hating Alison Ashley', 'Strange Bedfellows' and 'Thunderstruck', to name just a few of the recent Australian failures.

I cried during the film, and that doesn't happen to me very often. Vince Colosimo does a fantastic performance, and the strength of the ensemble is amazing.

I highly recommend this movie to others who enjoy excellent Australian cinema, and to those who have been disappointed by a lot of recent films that have underwhelmed.
