| ahhh, the sweet paradox of male bonding
I would just like to echo the first 2 comments made about this beautiful Australian drama. This movie was shown on the ABC channel here in Australia about a month ago and I didn't see the beginning. I wasn't really paying attention but flicking channels while doing some paperwork at my desk. As I left the TV on ABC for a while I found myself noticing that this was not your average TV drama show or indeed Australian movie. I was quickly drawn into the story and performances and before long I had abandoned my desk and was sitting like a child in front of the TV screen utterly engrossed. It beautifully portrays the lives of a group of men desperately trying to reconcile their seemingly successful outer world with their very weak and disconnected inner selves. In this male bonding scenario, while they put on the act of machismo and bravado as dictated by social expectation, they reveal just what fragile and scared individuals they really are. At the same time however, the story is beautifully measured, not judging or making a villain of any of them but merely peeling away the layers to reveal what lies beneath the surface. A must see for all seeking an honest insight into the male psyche... I am a male by the way, so would know! ;-)
