A micro budget movie with characters that comes through.
1 February 2018 | by zolizolidus-35734See all my reviews

Strange Colours refer to the color of the opals and this movie takes place out on the Australian outback in a opal mining community.

A young woman come and visit her not to well father. We get to see the mining community from daughters perspective. She get to meet her fathers friends, socialize with them at the pub and other places. We head down the mines and we get to see the countryside.

This is a debute movie by Alena Lodkina that earlier have done short documentarys, one of them about opal mining so I guess it came natural for her to go deeper into this.

When I watched it I felt like the speaking sound was a bit to loud. I dont know if it was the cinemas fault or if its the sound mixing error. Aside of that I think the relations between the characters feel very genuine and I dont know if that have to do with these people actually just being themself on screen and they are opal miners.

In the end it doesnt matter. I like the feel that this movie gives aside of the flaws I mentioned. I really like what Kate Cheel add to this movie.
