Dunera Boys is an excellent story.
25 July 2016 | by rosemarykerrisonSee all my reviews

This is a very well used DVD but the story of these men caught up in a very unjust situation celebrates the resilience and wonderful spirit of these refugees. It would be wonderful if this story was revisited and replayed or remade to the present day audience of Australians. Its a wonderful story of hope and hints at the wonderful talents locked in the internment camp. It was heartening to see a very down to earth interaction towards one another {captive and captor }and the thoroughly human and decent way respect for one another grew as the story progressed, The movie was a delightful surprise and makes one think what talents we may have locked away in our present day detention centres.
