| froth and depth in pretty much equal measure. An underrated future classic from down under.
A truly entertaining road movie from the early 80's, recently launched on DVD. From beginning to end, Goodbye P P is full of moments that charm and make you feel good, blended with those episodes of genuine depth that are (I think) hard to achieve in a film that sells itself for it's frothy facade. The acting is pretty good, the camera work very well done and overall a throughly enjoyable dash through beautiful New Zealand. There are certain sections of the flick that can seem rather dull but then again, I haven't seen a film that lacks these entirely.

Despite some dubious scenes (a mini out running an Oz V8 being one of them), the action sequences are believable, helped by the film and editing crews' skills.

Watch it and enjoy a surely to be cult classic.

What I found most intriguing about the whole thing was how dated everything appeared compared to early 80's UK. For those car buffs out there, check them out and you'll see what I mean but don't let that distract your attention from the subtle camera moves and as I said earlier, the quality of the acting.
