Black and White (2002) Review

No spoilers!

Went in knowing the film had Robert Carlyle. Thought to myself how can this be an Australian film with Robert Carlyle. Robert's one of the greatest actors of our times.
Then the opening credits begin and I see another name, Charles Dance. My doubts went up and I said to myself, "no way can this be an Australian film."

The movie would seem to begin with innocence but immediately turns out to be a very dark drama. The title of this movie is one of the most perfectly named movie titles of all time. Such is the content in this film and played perfectly by perfect cast. Simply, brilliant performances. Charles Dance is an A class actor, unbeatable. But Robert Carlyle, my goodness is one of the greatest actors of our times. David Ngoombujarra delivers natural performance. And I didn't know Kerry Fox was in this film. She is very beautiful, stunning in some scenes and gave subtle performance. With such talent you will forget that you are even watching a movie.

In the end, I was wrong. The music, the right feel, the perfect atmosphere all brought together a great Australian film. A film that is deeply rooted in "solid rock sacred ground" (Australia). Definitely must watch.
