A little gem from the Aussies
25 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I don't know where this film comes from. I mean if it is from a taping off or a simple 16mm print. One thing for sure, it is rare. A pretty effective adventure yarn that has nothing to envy to the US productions. Good settings, actual ones, I guess, not studios. Action paced, good characterization too, good score all long this little film. The story of a sunken treasure is nevertheless quite predictable, the usual stuff. You can't avoid that. Only the atmosphere is worth, and above all, in the late thirties, from Australia. I have never heard of the director and the actors too.

I also guess that many more films from this part of the world remain to be purchased, for sure. Let's be patient. They will emerge one day or another.
