a very interesting different film
27 January 2007 | by jaybobSee all my reviews

This review is based on Memory, We saw it somewhere in the 1990's Mainly because of Colin Friels & Wendy Hughes. We had seen both in other films & came across this one in a Blockbuster type store.

The basic story is intriguing to say the least.

I do not know if this ever had a US theatrical or TV release, it sure should have, The story was interesting & with an unusual plot. The acting was first rate.

With this film & a few other Australian made movies has made the land down under recognizable. There film Industry is to be commended on the fine films they have made over the years. This was just one of them

I highly recommend searching for it the next time you are in a video store. You will not be disappointed.
