Reviews

Award-winning Australian drama. Opening with one man being hit by train as another is diagnosed with testicular cancer, what follows is actually a love story. Nick (William McInnes), who is trying to live a normal life after being told he has cancer, ends up meeting Meryl (Justine Clarke), the only witness to the to the tragic train accident. Instantly drawn to one another, the two share their experiences of life and death while their family and friends suffer their own personal crises. The film, which blends animation and live action, was selected for a Critic's Week Special Screening at Cannes Film Festival, and also won the Discovery Award at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival.

In the Australian film Look Both Ways, tragedy can be everywhere, even just around the corner. A devastating rail accident affects the lives of a random group of characters in surprising ways. Set in South Australia - probably on the rust-belt fringes of Adelaide, Look Both Ways is all about death, dying, fate and chance and falling in love.

Over a sweltering weekend, people play cricket and take their kids for a barbecue, while artist, Meryl (Justine Clarke) witnesses a man being hit by a train while chasing the dog. She reports it to the police, and at the scene meets a newspaper photographer, Nick (William McInnes), who has just been told he has an aggressive form of testicular cancer.

Also at the scene is Andy (Anthony Hayes), a journalist for the same newspaper as Nick who writes the cover story for the accident in the local paper. Nick has his own problems. He is confronted by health worker Anna (Lisa Flanagan) with the news that she's pregnant, her ultimatum is that he is to shape up or ship out of her life.

Nick already has two kids from a previous marriage and fatherhood sits unsteadily with him at best. But when he takes a devastating photograph of the victim's wife, Julia (Daniela Farinacci) that lands on the front page by his editor Phil (Andrew S. Gilbert), this snapshot of ordinary life triggers characters into groping with life's options rather than moping around contemplating death.

As the characters negotiate around each other, writer-director Sarah Watt uses animation to portray her protagonist's innermost thoughts. When characters imagine the worst - train crashes, cancer cells attacking - their thoughts are rendered in impressionistic, painterly swirls.

I somehow missed this 2005 Australian film. Our neighbour said watch this you may like it as it is quirky. And it is. It has some interesting oddball characters trying to get something out in the overall pastiche of life where meaning and meaningless frequently collide. And for me there were times in this movie, it made no sense at all. But that is not always a bad thing when you are being left as the viewer to form your own opinion, view or emotional response to what you are seeing. The urban setting (Adelaide) rarely makes pretty, exposed raw railway lines, overbridges and shabby interiors with clothing more retail store than boutique. More eighties than 2005. The overall feeling does compare with 'Magnolia' but without the sharp scripting of that film. The best part was the two protagonists internal world; one always imagining the worse case scenarios was about to descend on them, the other it had happened and they were imagining the internal changes this was inflicting in what ever action they took and how they got there. These sequences were portrayed through animation and worked well. Worth the watch.

One of those types of movies the Aussies do so well, ie feels like it has been made on a budget of $50 over a weekend - if only the world had more movies like this, and less of those multi-million dollar fizzers. The storyline is nicely realised, and what may have been a complete downer ends up making you feel good.
