Bran Nue Dae

This was a fun film. I had people dancing on the back of utes. In fact I don’t think i’ve ever seen the crowd interect with a film so much. Everybody loved it. Even the people who came to watch the other film, “The Blind Side” enjoyed “Bran Nue Dae” more.

It’s a fast paced, colourful typically Aussie film. It’s what we do best.  Aussie cinema is not Hollywood, and will never be. We make quirky, colourful films about Australia and Australian subjects. And this is a very good example of that.

Admittedly it may be a bit over edited and short at 88 mins, some of the characters could have been expanded on a little. Some may say it is over acted. BUT ITS A MUSICAL! – It’s supposed to be overacted.  magda Szubanski and Deborah Mailman overact brilliantly. They take the stereotypical and throw it back in your face as comedy.

A brilliant Aussie Film, support Aussie film making and see this one at least a couple of times. 9/10
