This movie charms with its spontanety and crisp dialogue.
4 August 2007 | by jloftus-1See all my reviews

Great to a film with some freshness and vitality after the laborious mindless stuff that seems to dim our senses. Look forward to whatever this talented crew come up with in the future. Australia makes few films now days and good to see a slice of the underbelly of the Australia, the inner city, vagrant who could be anything, we've all known one and most often they disappear without realising anything of worth. Adolf Hitler was an example of the homeless man with potential waiting for his moment. No doubt an evil man but with vast resources of will. Eric is much more ordinary but is dynamic and quick thinking, he has heart and in the best Australian tradition willing to have a go.
