Storyline

The approach of a solar eclipse draws various people to Alice Springs, an Australian town surrounded by primitive tribal outback, where it can be best observed. Constable Hugh Delaney's son, Toby, and his partners expect a bus-load of Germans, but a crazy truck driver destroys their hotel, so he improvises an 'adventurous bush trip'. Future Med student Matt Marione takes the train searching for lost medicinal treasures from the aborigines and finds a mysterious lover aboard. 'Pellican' jogs all the way to Ayers Rock, accompanied by his wife and her grumpy friend who wants him out of the way. Former rock lead singer Jack Jaffers, who deserted his band's reunion to revisit the desert where they had their first success, joins them. Written by KGF Vissers

Wonderful views of Central Australia
5 August 2004 | by (Melbourne) – See all my reviews

The Alice outdoor scenes certainly were filmed in and around the real Alice Springs, and I enjoyed seeing some familiar places (Todd Mall, Anzac Hill, the John Flynn Memorial Church, the mural on the wall of Kmart, the Gap, the Macdonnell Ranges, Alice Springs railway station), as well as some great shots of the Central Australian scenery.

The railway scenes appeared to be shot north of Alice Springs, on the new line to Darwin - an anomaly, since the character on (and off, LOL) the train was traveling from Adelaide to Alice Springs and these events should have taken place to the south of the town. The passenger lounge on board The Ghan looked authentic, as did the exterior shots of the train.

The Adelaide station scenes were apparently shot somewhere other than at the station The Ghan uses, and the hotel into which the truck was driven was just a facade built for the film.

Yes, it was a bit quirky, but I enjoyed it a lot.
