Goofs

The train carriage in which the massacre occurs is halfway down the train. One of the victims is a man in an electric wheelchair. Because there is a gap between train and platform on Melbourne's train system people in electric wheelchairs must board the train in the front carriage, where the driver can assist by placing a ramp between the train and platform.

Quotes

Constable Graham McGahan: I got this theory about that. You know, what I read was, heaven or hell, is whatever you're thinking that second between your body dying and your brain dying. Your regrets, who you loved, who loved you. What you remember of your life, that's the eternity everyone's talking about. So, if you are a fuckwit, then... when you die, in that ten seconds between your brain and your body dying, your brain remembers all the time you were a fuckwit - over and over again... until it feels like this ...

A very well crafted and subtle film
4 May 2007 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I loved this film. It's a subtle, layered and measured work with good performances and a wonderful use of music and sound design. The story is well paced and again I see it in musical terms with the crescendos and diminuendos carefully crafted and motifs re-occurring throughout. I also found it a visual pleasure - well lit and photographed.

For a lot of the time, the soundscape echoes the tinnitus of the lead character. Constable McGann is a man isolated in several senses and the film hovers for the most part, like he does, on the periphery of a horrendous and senseless crime. This isn't really a police procedural, but an exploration of the lives affected by the event - the locals sitting just outside the event horizon and in danger of getting sucked into the vortex.

There's knowledge hidden from us, the audience, and also events and motivations that are hidden from the protagonists - even those directly affected by them and involving them. To that extent, this movie reminds me a lot of Memento.Meaning unfolds and understanding grows as the film progresses, but at the end, you are deliberately left with pieces missing from the jigsaw puzzle. It seems to me that you are meant to be left with a sense of the fragility of society; a sense that there will always be gaps in the way we understand our relationships to others and in the way our lives play out.

I love the way that the movie ends with austere credits rolling over a couple of minutes of silence, before sound in the form of an orchestra creeps back into our perception, instrument by instrument. We share the hero's aural affliction throughout the movie and the silence and re-introduction of sound offers a sense of change and resolution - and maybe hope.
