The first to revive or review this film ,even two times due to slenderistic language and inputs that seemed to be inappopiate or whatever, but i try again, which'll be the 1100th review from the nearly blind and ten thumbed handed grumpy old man... and as curiosity killed the cat, was this a neat surprise for a blue monday evening at the start of a new year., lets just summarize shortly, its life and death, pregnancy and abortion, hallusinations and assassination and its coke and meth, mixed with redwine and other alcoholic ingredients, and for those with a hang towards a tingling underbelly there are nudity en masse, spiced with a mouthfull of cunning linguistics and a rip current of bed gymnastics, and on top of that a stern and grell undertow of guilt and other feelings thats hard to put aname on.
its an australian flick that is pretty close to fine art filmographically, its well acted and full of suspense, even though it could be written on the backside of your hand its so full of dirty realism that you just cant leave the screen, and if that wasnt enough you will be asphyxiated by the icecold greyish beachwaves making the opposite mass flux of water near the seashore drag you under ,down and down again till you need to ressucitate yourself.
its also a twisted psychological drama with a web of lies, ocd and a bit of teenage girls ad-hd behavioural issues, that are pretty well dramatized.
