Captivating translation of text to movie
13 February 2020 | by msdanioneillSee all my reviews

I have really enjoyed the visual translation of this wonderful Tim Winton epic story. The mixed fortune plot lines are are poignantly offset by an attention to detail and endearing characterisations. The folklorish details of the original novel are imaginatively presented with beautiful cinematography and a well balanced sense of timing with the narrators Australian accent another aspect of the drama. I too was a little confused by the first episode but stuck with it an the story did reveal itself quite quickly into the second episode. I watched a version which was three episodes of about an hour and forty minutes each which was perfect for viewing on three almost consecutive domestics flights.
