Adelaide looks like an ugly place... and the film itself is just us ugly
27 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Fences of rusted corrugated iron, dead lawn, overgrown gardens, decaying palm trees... is this film trying to portray the poverty of Adelaide or is it just really this ugly and low class? As an Australian (from Melbourne), who has lived in the US for over a decade, I'm tired of seeing my former home country portrayed so terribly trashy and unattractive in film (Animal Kingdom?), but at the same time I feel the suburbs and cities themselves, particularly those portrayed in this film, are need of some dire landscaping. Or are they trying to paint the landscape as a backdrop for the plot?

However, the aesthetics of this film are not essential to a good film and aside from the way it looks, The Marriage of Figaro was certainly still not a good film. It's still poorly made, with some weak performances, and terrible editing. Nothing really redeemed this.

Don't bother with this one... it only re-enforces that crone-worthy "ocker" Aussie-ness that needs to become a part of our very distant history and stay there.
