Crikey! What a bloody great Australian film!

"Welcome to Australia!"

Epic in the truest sense, Baz Luhrmann's much-hyped Australia is a film that exhilarates with its grand themes and physical grandeur. Fundamentally the Australian response to classic war epics like Gone with the Wind and Lawrence of Arabia, Luhrmann's majestic motion picture is to date the most expensive Australian production in the country's history (with th... read more

''Just because it is, doesn't mean it should be.''

Set in northern Australia before World War II, an English aristocrat who inherits a sprawling ranch reluctantly pacts with a stock-man in order to protect her new property from a takeover plot. As the pair drive 2,000 head of cattle over unforgiving landscape, they experience the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by Japanese forces firs... read more

I kept hearing that this movie was supposed to be an Australian version of 'Gone with the wind' but, in my opinion, it is more an Australian version of 'Out of Africa' but well. I must say it took them some time to find the right tone since, at the beginning the movie, the whole thing was really over-the-top and rather comical to watch. But, slowly, it gets more and more dramatic and quite epic. A... read more

A romantic action-adventure set in northern Australia prior to World War II, AUSTRALIA centers on an English aristocrat who inherits a ranch the size of Maryland. When English cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn cattle driver to drive 2000 head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the country’s most unforgiving land, only to still face the bombing of Darwin, Australia by the Japanese forces that had attacked Pearl Harbor only months earlier.

November Movie Journal - Xanadon't (27 movies items)

" It's a big, roaming, goofy movie that's lovable in its "bright eyed, bushy tailed" kind of way. Director Baz Luhrmann seems to have an infectious (well, to me anyway) and simple love for cinema, and it's rare that he does anything without huge, equal measures of joy and gusto. There's also a sort of time-less or "classic" feel to this movie. It's presented in a way that calls to mind old Hollywood stars, scripts, and productions. Everyone seems to be running around with a sort of twinkle in th"

"14.11. Baz Luhrmanin postmodernismi ei ole aiemminkaan uponnut itseeni, ja tällaisen megaeepoksen katsastaminen aamuyöllä oli kyllä sellaista koomailua, että hyvä kun muistaa mitä tapahtui. Yllättävästi teoksen jaksaa kuin jaksaakin katsoa, ja välillä maisemat ovat ihan komeita. Silti homage vanhoille, hyville ja eeppisille seikkailuille ei jaksa kantaa, koska hahmojen todellisen kehittämisen sijaan heidät vain tyypitellään käveleviksi kliseiksi. Nyyhkyvasaralla viuhtominen ei "
