| One for Bryce Courtenay fans...
The Potato Factory is definitely true in style if not completely in content to the novel.

It gives the typical Courtenay piecemeal character development, in stuttered episodic fashion, telling the same old story, with slight variations on locations, period characters etc. As I said, if you're a fan of Courtenay's work, you'll will no doubt love it.

For me, I wish I watched the Graham Kennedy special which aired on the same night. 4 out of 10.
