Festival audience just sat holding breath
11 October 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

So beautiful every way. Apparent simpatico between director and cinematographer (lovely!), director and editor (graceful!), director and composer (subtle!), a wonderful example of the collective spirit in film. Strange that IMDb lists so few contributors to this high quality production. From Adelaide, South Australia, I'd like to write to congratulate the funding bodies: your film will be appreciated for years to come. When it comes to release time, be sure to take it slowly and let the word spread. Thanks to all involved!
