Samson andDelilahBy a customer from Johnstone , 23 Jun 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a really sad and depressing film about aborigines in Australia. Only watch if you like films without dialogue and long lingering shots.

OK Social DramaBy GaryI (785 reviews) from March, Cambs , 30 Dec 2012An interesting observation of life for native Australians in the 21st century, and its not pretty! The film lacks some heart which , for the first half at least, makes it slow and tedious. However it does pick up in the 2nd half. An interesting film albeit somewhat mundane.
Not quite Rabbit Proof Fence.By gingerspike (432 reviews) from Grimsby , 01 Mar 2012A slow burner of a movie about two aborigines in the Australian desert. There is very little dialogue throughout the film, a fact that seems to have rather annoyed many reviewers on here. However, the film is quite a moving, and at times rather funny, drama with added romance. To be honest, I was expecting a little more from the film but it was quite an interesting film that deserves to be watched.
Not as good as I was hopingBy angecm (35 reviews) from London , 28 Jan 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Rabbit Proof Fence is an excellent movie, I was hoping this movie would be of the same standard, sadly it isn't. It is honest and hard hitting about the problems in remote Aboriginal communities, but it is a very slow pace. The 2 lead actors and very good.
Excellently actedBy a customer , 04 Dec 2011Really sad but beautifully acted movie. Wish there were more in a similar vein by the stars of the film.
Tragic taleBy Mdj (14 reviews) , 04 Nov 2011Grim and relentless story that grinds you into the dust with its two hapless, but delicately portrayed, central characters. Worth a look but you'll need something jolly to lift your spirits afterwards.
