The last movie I saw was "Oyster Farmer". As it involved the area that I visited as a child and was passing through on a daily basis I found it visually enjoyable.


Hmm, I was planning to see that one soon. But if the sex is not up to scratch, well .....? :wink:

I've read interesting reviews of The Magician. Anyone seen it?




Olga, petal, I would see it. The photography of the Hawkesbury is just magic....

Just -- there is this bit where the leads do a bit of horizontal folk-dancing. Fine, but it doesn't really add much to the movie as such...

I checked out Oyster Farmer online & it looks very promising! Check out those rave reviews in the link! :

http://www.dendyfilms.com.au/images/keyart/oysterfarmer.jpg
23 year old Jack Flange (Alex O'Lachlan), moves from Sydney to a small oyster-farming community to work for Brownie (David Field) and his old man Mumbles (Jim Norton), one of the founding families of the river who are now almost bankrupt.
Jack has moved to the river to be closer to his sister Nikki who is recovering from a car accident in a private hospital nearby. In a desperate bid to find money for her hospital bills, Jack robs the Sydney Fish Markets and posts the proceeds to himself upriver where he waits for the package to arrive.

Set in the beautiful environs of the Hawkesbury River and also starring Jack Thompson, Oyster Farmer is the anticipated first feature from award-winning short filmmaker Anna Reeves.

I don't understand. I mean, Oyster Farmeris a fairly new film, right? I thought I'd see it this weekend but it's not playing anywhere in central Melbourne. Surely it couldn't have been & gone already? Confused

I was really impressed with how she (Watt) used animations to show how the characters were feeling or responding to particular situations. A couple of episodes really startled me & made me jump. And I loved how the they showed that the two main characters had relaxed after their first sexual experience. (I think his cancer went into remission while her dreadful forebodings eased considerably. Nice touch! Very Happy)

Lol.

Nah, he had chemo and the lot.


He seemed to go into remission after that, but I am not sure.


There were certainly nice things happening, then the camera stopped taking shots, so I do not think the remission necessarily lasted...

I don't think it actually happened, either. Very Happy Just took him (mentally) back to how he was feeling before he discovered he had cancer. Momentarily stopped his panic. The bad cells sort of receded in the animation. A really nice moment in the film. Very Happy

Oh. I'm wondering how she responded to that character's situation?

Thought it very accurately portrayed, in terms of emotional reactions etc.

Surprised What a strange reaction. I don't think it was a chick-flick at all.
