Storyline

Viktor Kahdem is a man who has almost given up on life, sentenced to a low-security prison farm, a completely non-threatening environment where it is still felt that some individuals can be reformed. At Won Wron, Case Worker Matt Perry has established a unique program to rehabilitate broken men through giving them the responsibility for the rehabilitation of injured raptors - beautiful, fearsome proud eagles, falcons and owls. Against all odds, Matt takes on Viktor as his number one test case, introducing him to Yasmine, the majestic wedge tailed eagle with a 2 metre wingspan. If these two can tame each other, anything is possible. Written by Craig Monahan

Trivia

Actors Don Hany and Justine Clarke were also in a television drama series called Tangle a few years earlier. However, their characters had no direct involvement on camera in Tangle, unlike the regular contact their Healing characters had. See more »

Goofs

When Viktor is travelling into the city on the train, the internal shots show he is on a diesel powered V/Line train. However, as his train pulls into Southern Cross station, the external shots of the train show he is now on an electric "Metro" train. The internal shots continue to show him on a V/Line train, then the final external shot shows him stepping off the electric train and (even though in real life, it is plausible to switch between the two trains on that line). at no point in the story is there an explanation or logical reason to why he may have switched trains.

The best movie I've seen in a long long time.
25 August 2014 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Being a member of Wingspan Birds of Prey Trust in New Zealand and having visited Healsville Raptor Sanctuary in Melbourne Australia, I was always going to be a avid fan of the movie. What I was not expecting was the great story that went with the amazing photography and incredible acting. It's been a long time since a story based on real events has been brought to the big screen with such sensitivity. The Birds and the incredible photography were a credit to their handlers and trainers and the photographers. A must see movie for anyone with a love of birds of prey and for anybody who enjoys a movie without all the fancy stuff that still leaves you feeling great when you leave the theater

Well done to all concerned.
