Trivia

The scene with the submerged plane in the river was based on a real life experience the director had in North Queensland. While on a tourist crocodile watching tour he witnessed a crocodile playing with a bloated, dead pig around the boat. See more »

Goofs

As the couple arrives at the town and the camera travels across the town and over the evacuation sign, right after the goof with the pickup-truck seen at the distance, they look at the town and a person can be seen walking away from the white car in the distance. Another result of shooting in open locations. See more »

A beautiful, quiet, poetic movie more about places, than monsters.
17 May 2011 | by (London) – See all my reviews

A beautiful, quiet, poetic movie more about places, than monsters. The film starts off a bit gimmicky - with some Cloverfield like action sequence, then it settles into the main storyline, and slowly builds on the characters, and places, the emotional landscape they experienced. It almost reminded me of "Motorcycle Diary" but with occasional monsters. Actings were superb, very natural, not forced with main characters undeniable likeness to Skeet Ulrich & Cameron Diaz.

The pacing of the movie is quite slow at times, definitely not for people looking for action. The special effects are sprinkled sparingly throughout the movie, where its needed to great effect. All in all, an engrossing, quiet movie to enjoy.
