Two Hands (1999) is an "Australian gangster comedy" (as Heath describes it [1]). Heath plays Jimmy, a hot, tender and simple guy mixed up with the Sydney mafia. Heath describes Jimmy as "a young guy that ... is growing up all his life in The Cross. His mum maybe was a prostitute ... his father is dead maybe ... basically he is in a world where he believes that this is his only path in life ... he meets a lovely young lady, Alex, and she opens his eyes and let's him see that there's another light at the end of the tunnel" [2]. Two Hands, a film alla Tarantino and, for some moments, alla Jim Jarmusch, was the first movie filmed and based on Kings Cross (Sydney's red-light district): "It's something that we haven't really seen in Australia ... the gangster side of Sydney ... we see it on the Godfather, we see them driving around in their Rolls-Royces, but we don't see the Australian godfathers in their stubby shorts and singlets [3], drinking VBs [4] ..."[5]. The film is funny, strong and cool (without counting the "zombie scenes", which I didn't like at all), and the director (Gregor Jordan) and cast surrounding the amazing, wonderful and talented Heath (Bryan Brown, David Field and Rose Byrne) are amazing / Antonia Tejeda Barros

Unfortunately, the DVD does not have ENGLISH subtitles for the hearing impaired, and, if English is not your native language (like it happens to be in my case), sometimes there are words that are difficult to understand, due to the Aussie accent and slang.

Australia has a good pedigree for crime thrillers and this early appearance as leading man by the much lamented Heath Ledger does not disappoint. He is in no way overshadowed by Aussie movie regular Bryan Brown who is in full scenery-chewing mode as a loving family man cum murderous gangster. Ledger plays a young layabout, charming but not the sharpest knife in the box, whom Brown chooses to deliver $10,000 to an address the other side of town, which sum Ledger promptly loses. The plot, which I will not give away, hinges upon Brown's attempts to reclaim his missing money, and Ledger's efforts to raise an equivalent amount before Brown finds him and blows him away. There is not just edge-of-seat excitement a-plenty, but some glorious laugh-out-loud comedy as well. Some of the plotting relies a little too heavily on coincidence, and it's a pity the film has not been released in 16:9 ratio; you'll have to put up with 4:3, but I heartily recommend it all the same.

I love this film. I watched it a few years ago on late night TV and remember laughing a lot, but I forgot the name of it. I recently found it again and bought the DVD.

It tells the story of Jimmy who gets in trouble with local gangsters. The goodies drive Holdens, the baddies drive Fords. It's a good story, will Jimmy be killed, will he get the girl and who's the dead guy who looks like him?

Most of all though, you'll be laughing when the bank robber knocks himself unconscious during the job and when the baby pulls the trigger on the shot gun and the guy who left his bullets in his jeans when they went through the wash.

Definitely worth watching.

When I first came across this one I was quite sceptical as to its credentials but on viewing it turned out to be a very good crime thriller with a splash of comedy and a hint of horror. Ledger is as good in Two Hands as he is in anything but there's a good supporting cast too, not least of which is Aussie stalwart Bryan Brown (Cocktail,F/X, Austrailia) who plays the evil villain and owner of $10,000 that Jimmy (Ledger) manages to loose. Jimmy must find the money or face the violent wrath of Pando(Brown). Kick back with some popcorn and enjoy this super little movie for what it is. An overlooked gem.

One of the funniest films I've ever seen, and a very true representation of Sydney, where I used to live.
