INTERSTING & ENGAGING FOLLOW UP FROM SERHAT CARADEE
Serhats first film Cedar Boys was a great film out of Western Sydney. His follow up his very different but worth the watch. This film although slow, it has an engaging topic about a Muslim Australian returning from fighting in Syria. The characters are interesting and the conversations are heavy. If you don't like dialogue heavy films - this film is NOt for you. Its a slow unfolding drama that's worth the watch if you want to watch a basic story about a family torn by one mans actions. Excellent performance by Tyler DeNawi and supporting actors Jaqui Pervis and Buddy Danoun. Special mention to Helen Chabatte and Maha Wilson does a fine job. Its a one location film that will keep your attention. If your looking for action this film is not for you. Overall its a better Aussie film then those with bigger budgets. Well done to the cast and crew.
