One of five theatrical feature films that were first released in Australia in 2002 which were major movies about indigenous Australian Aboriginality. They were: Rolf de Heer's 'The Tracker', Paul Goldman's 'Australian Rules', Ivan Sens's 'Beneath Clouds', Phillip Noyce's 'Rabbit- Proof Fence', and Craig Lahiff's 'Black and White'. Four of these pictures were filmed in South Australia. See more »

Only Australian movie I've seen... and it was great!
For a foreign, the language is pretty hard to understand, because they use lot of slangwords.. Well. I liked this film. The aggregate is beautiful and harmony and I think it's categorized as an art film... I'm not sure, but that's what I was told to. The movie is about white girl and black guy, their sad stories and hate which becames to friendship and then love.
