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

Slightly strange comedy / drama set in the Oz outback.
1 August 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Beautifully filmed in what looks like the real Alice Springs, the use of colour and light is quite exquisite and, in my opinion, the high point of the film. In fact I would go so far as to say that I believe that even Claude Monet would have pursed his lips in approval at some of the takes.

Four groups of individuals are going to meet in Alice Springs. Some are going there for the eclipse, some other reasons, some passing through, some are going home. But all of them are going to interact with each other in a "six degrees of separation" kind of way. And when the eclipse is over, not all of them will live to see the Sun emerge from behind the moon....

Bit of a bizarre movie, this one. Has a bit of a Peter Wier feel to it when, in fact, the production crew seem to be only the Nine Network regulars who are behind "McLeod's Daughters".

The story is slightly improbable, in fact somewhat fantastic in some places. The characters are reasonably believable, only slightly exaggerated. But as an entertaining two house of adventure in the outback, it seems to work fine.
