Goofs

Emily rides her bicycle everywhere but does not wear a bicycle helmet. Australian states had all introduced legislation requiring bicycle riders to wear helmets by 1992. As this film appears to be set after then, Emily should be wearing one. It is most noticeable as a goof when Carl Roberts (the police officer) sees her riding without a helmet and does nothing about it. See more »

A real gem
24 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies I have seen all year. I loved the raw and un-contrived characters seeking to resolve (consciously or unconsciously) issues of 'identity'. The actors played their parts to perfection with that winning blend of introspection and underplay. The location of Robe in South Australia was a good choice visually and provided variety in weather conditions which added to the film's mysterious quality. There is a certain feeling of mystery to the film, helped not least by the soulful soundtrack and location, but also by the expert use of pause during the film. This film is another example of the talent Australia can boast for film-makers and actors alike.
