Watch this do big things!
8 September 1999 | by aNON-12See all my reviews

I saw this at the Noosa Film Festival. Strange Fits of Passion is a quirky, black coming of age comedy drama. It twists and turns and takes you on a trip of self realisation. Michela Noona gives a powerful perfomance as She, who comes to grips with her self absorbtion.

The secondary story line, of her best friend is heart wrenching, yet this film combines humour with 20 something angst. Not one for the over 35 market but anyone between 16 and 35 will love it.
