Goofs

The film is set in Sydney and the Button family are residents of Sydney. However, the conversation between wife Christine Button (Anita Hegh) and Doug Lamont (Colin Friels) was shot in Canberra on the south bank of Lake Burley Griffin, probably the park near the National Library, with the High Court of Australia and the Carillon clearly visible in the background.

Excellent undercover movie
2 February 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Brilliant Australian movie, far exceeded my expectations. Quality cast give exceptional performances, particularly MacInnes in the title role. There are also some thought-provoking moments with well-chosen musical pieces. The story, allegedly based on a true story, is about an innocuous outdoor furniture salesmen who comes out of the woodwork, to alert authorities about an international criminal in Australia. The federal police, while appreciative of the information, are somewhat suspicious of the informant and his background. Taking a chance, they realise that he could be a "new methodology" in their fight against crime, and employ the informant for an important case they have had trouble with. This is a unassuming movie, well written, which does everything right. Probably the best Australian movie I've seen.
