What a treat
26 November 2018 | by cielmartSee all my reviews

Captured the emptiness of the inhabitants and menace of Lightning Ridge and every place like in Australia - and there are many. Nothing happens but everything happens. At times intense levels of expectation that something is about to happen, then ....... It sums up the lives of the denizens in these places. They live in the constant expectation that something will happen, but nothing ever does. And it it does, it's not always what you expected.

The relationships are beautifully realised as is the atmosphere of the outback.
