Description: A desert town in Australia. Children play around the school during recess. The sun is out and the sky is cloudless. Suddenly the sound of thunder. A few kids look up to the sky, confused. Then a heavy downpour followed by a violent hailstorm. In Sydney, the rains cause traffic jams. The strange occurrence in the desert town is reported as a quirk of nature. David Burton, a tax lawyer, returns to his suburban home outside the city. That night he is troubled by a dream in which he sees the apparition of a man. The malevolent weather continues for days. At one point the rain turns into a shower of black blobs. David Burton is ...

"18.1 Weir/Australia Peter Weirin läpimurtotyössä David Bowien näköinen Richard Chamberlain sotkeentuu aboroginaalien touhuihin. Cityboy-aboriginaalit ovat myllyttäneet erään heimolakeja rikkoneen eli pyhiä kaluja syyhkineen toverinsa hengiltä. Valkoisella eliitillä ei ole harmainta aavistustakaan abojen sosiologiasta, mitä elokuvassa toistuvasti alleviivataan. Oudot tapahtumat ja häiritsevät unet sekoittavat Richard Chamberlainin pääkopan. Elokuva pyrkii kiristämään jännitet"

A thematically intriguing, haunting Aussie mystery

“Director Peter Weir's follow-up to the critically acclaimed Picnic at Hanging Rock, 1977's The Last Wave is a seminal motion picture from the Australian New Wave era of the '70s and '80s, during which Australian cinema saw a resurgence in worldwide popularity. Instead of a generic or simplistic apocalyptic drama, The Last Wave is steeped in Australia's Indigenous culture, with unique Dreamtime themes that are seldom represented in mainstream motion pictures. With a screenplay by Weir, Tony Morphett and Petru Popescu, this is a thematically intriguing and haunting mystery, buoyed by a top-notch cast and a consistently engaging, ethereal visual style.

A mysterious wild weather event hits Australia, bringing heavy rain and hail to both rural towns and metropolitan areas, and the Ind” read more
