So don't be fooled. Buy it on VHS.
This is a story of another time, where the pace people lived at was different than now. That fact needs to be apparent from the beginning of the film. The Pachelbel Canon is a beautiful choice for flying music when you don't have a big budget.
I liked these characters. I felt for their situations and understood how you could get there. Top of my list of scenes: Russell Crowe reciting "High Flight" it was done beautifully. I'd like to see and hear him do Shakespeare.
One of the other reviewers said they felt the character of Lill was "wooden". Was she? Or was it her character trying to resist Lachlan? I felt like she knew, from the beginning, she could never give in totally to him . In just a few weeks he'd be gone, like her husband, who she had loved too. So, was she "wooden" or was she just saving a part of herself so she could survive sending these people she loved off to war?
I did enjoy "Waltzing Matilda".
On the whole it was a sweet movie more of what you would have expected from the 1940's... and wasn't that the idea. They threw in more current concerns as homosexuality and racism which makes it more 1990's. Nice film.

A look at an early Russell Crowe. An interesting look at at people who are swept up in the events of WWII and try to make the best of it.Published 15 months ago by Janet E Quistberg
