just wonderful and well-watched!!,
This review is from: The Dish [DVD] (DVD)
Our copy of this has been doing the rounds now for ages, it's that good. I never tire of this lovely film. I have a bit of a phobia of large satellite dishes (I know...) so first watched this on TV with some trepidation!! But, I'm so glad I did. I love Sam Neill and Aussie films, so the combination proved too much to resist. The soundtrack is great, lots of wonderful contemporary tracks to enjoy, and the gentle humour is fab - watch it a few times and little extra bits pop out at you that you don't notice at first. There's some nice little sub-plots going on to keep things moving, and the characters are all superb - individuals you come to care about and root for during what is actually not a long film at all. Quite moving in parts (if you're that way inclined), this is a gem that will entertain you whenever you like ("there's nothing on TV tonight!"). Same goes for "Strictly Ballroom", by the way - brill!
