An Indonesian fishing boat abandons a group of Iraqi and Cambodian men on a remote part of the Western Australian coast. Told there is a bus over the dunes, the men are abandoned to a desert the size of Poland. While most are quickly rounded up, three men with little in common but their history of misfortune elude capture and begin an epic but confused journey drawn on by their hopes amplified by the empty desert. Pursued by an army reservist unit more concerned with playing ball sports and music, our three protagonists wander deeper into trouble, searching desperately among the harsh beauty of the Pilbara for evidence of a western, liberal democracy. Or the promised bus. Written by ex Wikipedia

Arid brilliant black comedy
26 August 2007 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

This film is for thinkers. The contrast and interaction between the 2 main characters alone, is priceless! Kind of a cowboy story where everyone is on their own selfish little trip, all a little lost in one way or another.

Just when we think something terrible is going to happen, WHAM, a clever, witty remark or something unexpected happens. What a hilarious send-up of the Australian army.

As The Sydney Morning Herald puts it, it's a bit like The Wizard of Oz minus Dorothy and the dog.

The dessert, is so beautiful, and the music, well, I sure hope the soundtrack is available soon.

Yes, the 'birds aren't very musical in Australia'. ;-D Lisa McIntosh
