This is an uncanny film which shows a side to Australia most Australians would prefer not to know. First Time Director Thornton presents a series of small tragedies without preaching, moralising and mostly without words, in a similar way to Cronenberg’s masterpiece Spider. He creates an uncomfortable atmosphere, which is confronting but wholly realistic.
The main characters rarely speak. Delilah speaks only in an aboriginal tongue. Samson says one word in the whole movie, and that is a laboured attempt to say his own name. Other characters speak English freely, creating a point of difference between Samson and Delilah and the world they encounter. It also alienates them further.
This film gives a snapshot of the effects of substance abuse, extreme poverty, the violence within aboriginal society as well as the violence directed at it and worse of all the general apathy of the white population to these issues. The acting is unpretentious, the soundtrack sparse and conversation is absent.
The tragedies experienced by aboriginal people have no simple solutions. The first step toward a solution is to be aware that there is a problem. This film does that in spades. The sparse non-verbal presentation makes the viewer have to work to interpret the images shown. In the process one may glean an intuitive understanding, which is often the role of art.
Not art-house…..not really anything
There are two ageing “movie critics” in Australia who always wet there pants when an Aussie movie is good. (a rare occurrence). They gave this “different” film top marks. When the two leads don’t say a single word to each other , and only have half a dozen facial expressions…..acting can be very easy !!! (both performances were only average) The strange thing is…when any of the small cast DO actually talk…they don’t do it very well. This is one of those very annoying movies that screams at the viewer “I am an art–house movie, like me”. This is not a piece of work that you would want to watch more than once. It does not represent the Aboriginal peoples drastic existence in outback Australia. (its a lot worse than this). The ridiculous happy ending was a pure cop out.
