Set in northern Australia before World War II, an English aristocrat who inherits a sprawling ranch reluctantly pacts with a stock-man in order to protect her new property from a takeover plot. As the pair drive 2,000 head of cattle over unforgiving landscape, they experience the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by Japanese forces firsthand.
The story of former Hollywood star Grace Kelly's crisis of marriage and identity, during a political dispute between Monaco's Prince Rainier III and France's Charles De Gaulle, and a looming French invasion of Monaco in the early 1960s.
In northern Australia at the beginning of World War II, an English aristocrat inherits a cattle station the size of Maryland. When English cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn stock-man to drive 2,000 head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the country's most unforgiving land, only to still face the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by the Japanese forces that had attacked Pearl Harbor only months earlier.Written by

I watch Australia movie when it was first release. I have opportunity to watch again. Hollywood happy ending stereotypes in different subjects. This is not my favorite part.
But I liked the movies cinematography. Demostratively light blowing up. Always bright picture. It's nice when it's not mistake it's made for purpose. Tempetura in the place of life. Colorful and shining light on camera has done the comedy element. Although some of the images in which artificial're pretty terrible.
Mandy Walker has done a really nice job. We have to remember that director Baz Luhrmann. You can watch that movie without time consuming.
