Trivia

In one scene Peto is singing along to Rose Tattoo's song 'We Can't Be Beaten' which wasn't released until 1983 yet the movie takes place in the 1970's so it is not possible for Peto to be listening to and singing along to this song. See more »

Goofs

All the trains in the movies were hauled by either GE Dash 9 or GE Evolution Series locomotives, but these locomotives were only introduced to Pilbara region between mid 90s and 2011. In between 1971 and 1979, Hamersley Iron railroad mostly used Alco, and the livery back in 70s was yellow and blue. See more »

I was lucky to see this film at the Australian Film Festival at the Barbican in London. It sounded like a heart wrencher - and it was! OK, so the performances can tend towards the clichéd or perhaps wooden and the story is a little slow in spots BUT I loved it. A really touching film, shot beautifully with some great Aussie scenery! A world that few get to experience. And Koko is amazing as Red Dog! I haven't read Louis de Bernieres story that is based on, or even heard of the "folk tale" that the movie is based on, but the story is compelling. Oh, and some great Aussie music forms the soundtrack. And of course a bit of crazy Aussie dancing (and fashion) that goes along with it!
