Among its residents are a group of friends who socialize together: married Stewart and Claire, a service station owner/former race car driver and a pharmacist respectively, and their school age son Tommy; married Carl and Jude, who have been guardians to their granddaughter Caylin-Calandria, Tommy’s friend and disruptive classmate, ever since her mother’s passing; Rocco and his new aborigine girlfriend, Carmel, a teacher at Tommy and Caylin-Calandria’s school; and young parents Billy and Elissa, Billy who works casually as a mechanic for Stewart. Despite Stewart and Claire loving each other, there has long been disharmony in their household. Claire left for eighteen months following Tommy’s birth due to post-partum depression. Then, Stewart’s mother moved to Jindabyne to look after Tommy, but still undermines Claire as a parent. And Claire doesn’t like Stewart’s closed emotional state, she who just wants them all to connect as human beings. As they do every year, the four men embark on a multi-day fly fishing trip to a remote section of the river. Shortly upon their arrival, Stewart discovers the dead body of a young aborigine woman in the river. What the men decide to do, or not to do, ends up receiving the wrath of general populace, but especially that of the aborigine community. It also has the potential to tear the friendship among this group, as well as Stewart and Claire’s marriage, apart. Through it all, Claire, in that want for human connection, does what she believes is the right thing, which is not always met with what is her intent.
Plot: Stewart Kane, an Irishman living in the Australian town of Jindabyne, is on a fishing trip in isolated hill country with three other men when they discover the body of a murdered girl in the river. Rather than return to the town immediately, they continue fishing and report their gruesome find days later. The story of a murder and a marriage – a film about the things that haunt us.

A dark, sinister view
This is a ‘typical’ Ray Lawrence film. Similar in its dark view of the world, to his earlier ‘Lantana’. The same slow, deliberate, menacing pace, drawing out evil in every corner (“shades of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks” here). Our good ol’ boy Aussies (one a transplanted Irish), on a weekend trout fishing trip away from their wives, ‘park’ the corpse of a murdered woman they discover floating in their stream. They continue with their fishing, not reporting the find until leaving the site – for which they are intensively and unremittingly attacked by all and sundry on their return. The fact that the dead woman is an Australian Aboriginal person adds to the ‘political’ impact of their offense. Through all this, the real serial killer (who we see from the first scene) hovers menacingly nearby.
An interesting, if somewhat cynical, view of the highly charged inter-racial atmosphere in the Australian community: white guilt and ‘political correctness’. Who are the real villains here? Our ‘politically incorrect’ (and morally vacuous) protagonists? Or the murderer? Accoring to Lawrence, the former, apparently.
Taught and tense throughout, the film lacks a real resolution, opting instead for a rather ‘weak’ ending through the redemption of the fishers.
Dangerous and hard drama
The movie begins with a man, obviously creepy and disturbed, running down an Aborigine woman near Jindabyne, Australia, with intent to rape and kill. Of course, any description of this movie makes it as clear as possible: this is not a thriller, and the goal is not to find the perpetrator. Rather, the action is set around the town of Jindabyne after a group of fishermen (led by Gabriel Byrne) find the body, leave it for a day longer to go fishing, and then set off a scandal that threatens to tear their families, and even the town, apart.
The fact that this movie even manages to keep that dramatic tension as high as it is supposed to be is indication of the powerful directing of Ray Lawrence. From the get-go, it feels as if every piece of dialog and every minutia of the mise-en-scene matters–even when it doesn’t. The film is packed with symbolism, but the symbolism is not shown in close-up or importance-lighting… it’s just there.
The film is, in fact, very hard to watch because from the detached perspective of the viewer, a lot of what the people do is absolutely hateful and disturbing. However, it’s real, and takes the most limited amount of putting one’s self into the shoes of the characters to understand completely why they do the things they do. It may be frustrating to watch all these people hurt each other with their misperceptions and their anger, yet the characters are so well drawn that it’s easy to see where they’re coming from. This movie builds itself around their personalities, which is hard enough to do in any medium, but also does it with the full promise that the murder-mystery aspect will never be resolved for the viewer–a dangerous proposition in a world where people require the tidy.
