I loved it too, Pris. It didn't get good reviews here or (according to a friend who lives there) in Australia. But I thought it had everything: good story, spectacular scenery, a dose of history (I looked up the history of Northern Australia in WW II at Wikipedia and the movie was very accurate), and find acting.
I saw the trailer for this and was drawn in by the scenery...I must rent it out. x
Looks quite epic!I wonder about the fit to the Australian demeanor, though.Looks great for Canada, and in the right season for the US (summer vaca).Someone pointed me to the youtube"Hercules Returns" clips. Themovie was a smash in Aus. in the90's. Far, far from this though..heh.
Hi Jim, there's a mythic quality to this movie even though there's the bit about the war in there based on historical fact. It really worked for me on that basis, rather than 'this is Australia'.Ellen, yes, do.
Toni, Missed you there. Glad you saw it.
