He remembers a promise his dad had made to him when he was a nipper. That was to go fishing on the Northern most tip of Australia at Cape York. So he packs Charlie into his car and they start on a three thousand mile road trip. On the way they rekindle their flagging relationship and get to meet some great characters and have some very amusing adventures. They also get to visit some cultural high spots, like the Giant Koala Tourist Complex and stay in a period Georgian Motor Lodge true class there methinks.
This is a heart warming tale which is funny, but not side splitting, it has one foot firmly in reality and does not shy away from the real issues that face families at a time of crisis but it does so in a really caring and understanding way. I really enjoyed it and all praise to Screen Australia for putting up the cash, it is great to see some more brilliant antipodean cinema and if you want a real treat check out `The Castle', one of my favourite films ever.
The Australian landscape photography (Roger Lanser) is as stunning as the simplicity of screenplay, with the humour and emotional wallops delivered with great skill by Hogan and Jacobson. The message of it all is not heavily handled by director Dean Murphy, he and his team take us on a journey that rings true, one that brings hope to the many who need a prompt, a push in the right direction. Because it's true you know, life really is too short.
A lovely and heart warming movie that's also very funny as well. It deserves to be better known. 8/10
The story is good too. The way a grieving widower is reconciled to an estranged son, who is determined to get his father out of the misery of grief that has overtaken him, is brilliantly told . I loved this film , one I will watch many times.
