Very generous movie
29 September 2004 | by TVPUBSee all my reviews

It starts like a soap opera, or like one of those moralistic movies we see on Lifetime Channel... It promises to be just a little family movie.

However - it soon becomes an enriching experience, created with lots of generosity. True, without the setting in the Australian outback, and without the isolated family of farmers dealing with unique hardships, probably the movie would have been just a well-done small drama.

But the Australian charm and directness make all the difference. Definitely a "must see"!
