I saw this movie when I was a student in Perth and it's one of the films that I'd like to add to my collection. I've searched various places and never had any luck finding it (even on VHS).

I've found it available on Dstore and have ordered it. This company can now deliver DVDs (and other items) to the UK and other European countries, USA and Canada as well as Japan.

The web site is http://dstore.com.au/ I have used them personally on about six or seven previous occasions and can now be used for a useful source of Australian movies (some of which can be hard to find). Previously I've had some delivered to my parents address in Perth and they've sent them onto me.
