Goofs

Emily rides her bicycle everywhere but does not wear a bicycle helmet. Australian states had all introduced legislation requiring bicycle riders to wear helmets by 1992. As this film appears to be set after then, Emily should be wearing one. It is most noticeable as a goof when Carl Roberts (the police officer) sees her riding without a helmet and does nothing about it. See more »

A superb film in all respects.
12 June 2006 | by (Fremantle, Australia) – See all my reviews

I am and always have been a huge fan of our films and this South Australian production that my wife and I just watched in Fremantle added another superb example to this wonderful collection. Without stretching the metaphor too tightly, I would compare our films like Oyster Farmer, Danny Deckchair, Peaches and others to name only a few, to the difference between a French wine to an Argentine wine or any wine from another country. They are all different but to judge one superior to another is a fool's game. The Caterpillar Wish was as superb an Australian film as I have seen: the acting by all the principals was perfect; the direction by Sciberras was masterful and the cinematography by Fraser completed the beauty of the film.

As I have commented in the past, I am particularly moved by the images of a film; I am particularly sensitive to the visuals on the screen and in that sense, a director's shot selection and the cinematography for those shots constitute another major acting role in a film. Diane and I were impressed with the remarkable visuals in Caterpillar Wish because Sciberras used big closeups throughout the film and that shot technique matched well the drama of the script as well as the seaside location of much of the film.

If you think that Diane and I loved this film, you would be right. The visuals of the location, the casting of the characters, their acting, the direction and the cinematography all contributed to an unforgettable film. If you like our film genre then you owe it to yourself to see this excellent film.
