Set in northern Australia before World War II, an English aristocrat who inherits a sprawling ranch reluctantly pacts with a stock-man in order to protect her new property from a takeover plot. As the pair drive 2,000 head of cattle over unforgiving landscape, they experience the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by Japanese forces firsthand.
What a delight! Something different and enjoyable. The characters, setting, music and direction. Really, really enjoyed this film. No violence, no extreme aggro and even no sex. Yet, I was thoroughly entertained. An older friend of mine thought there were too many characters and got confused. But I didn't find this at all. From the opening credits you could tell this was going to be a classy movie. Unfortunately, not too many people watched this show. Which is a pity. There should be more movies like this one. I would class this as one of the great telemovies on food and love. Full credit to the cast and crew for a job well done. There has to be an audience out there for this type of entertainment.
