A Tightly Wrought Tale of Greed and Revenge,
This review is from: The Bank (DVD)
THE BANK is another Australian movie that demonstrates how sophisticated 'foreign' films can be. Robert Connolly directs this tale of corruption with breakneck speed, leaving little time for catching a breath much less understanding the heavily accented dialogue (no English subtitles available on this DVD and many conversations are lost because of the thick Aussie accents by some of the actors). Anthony LaPaglia is the devil incarnate and David Wenham as the new PhD in mathematics who can drive LaPaglia's scheming to disastrous ends. Both are excellent as are the other cast members. The music score by Alan Jones is superb (listen carefully to the boys choral writing) and the graphics are top notch. Not a great movie but a thoroughly entertaining, edge of your seat, wizardlike video game - one in which you as viewer can surmise all the moves.

How "sophisticated" Australian films are ? Perhaps you could learn from our banking system, which doesn't allow "cowboys" to destroy the economy and put millions out of their homes, and lose their jobs! As for the accent - awfully sorry, it is an Australian film made in Australia with an Aussie cast. When our actors come to the USA to work they adapt - I suggest you do the same.
PS Next time I see a USA movie or watch an American TV series, eg The Wire, do they speak English ? The rest of the English speaking WORLD can't understand them.
