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.

Brilliant movie - Great cast as well.....................
14 November 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I have just finished watching the informant and what can i say other than great movie. From the casting of colin friels to the well thought out plot of the undercover world. The characters were very believable,the actors playing there roles were brought there a game and a director who gave us a very in depth view of the special police undercover world based in sydney. The little side plots were good as well regarding the informant's daughter and son and also the other two police officers monitoring the operation, i was also surprised that there was no course language normally for an Australian film the script is covered in that stuff but even if it did it doesn't bother me anyway. This year i have noticed also that channel 10 has been making the quality programs likes of rush and now the informant as normally its the other stations making quality but change is good. One other thing i will add to my review is that at the end of the movie they sort of left it open for more story. maybe we might see another movie or even a TV series, who knows. I hope they bring this movie out on DVD.
