Summer coda - a film set in Mildura
« on: October 25, 2010, 06:59:20 PM »
This is a just-released film which has great local atmosphere, but which moves at a crawling pace to a predictable conclusion.
Clearly formulaic: If you can't include a USA connection, you don't get world distribution or box office.
What is uncertain: do the scenes and backdrops include the river and paddleboats?
The film is set in modern times, so the only paddleboats would have to be tourist ones.

This Australian movie explores in detail the relationship between a young woman...who arrives in Australia from USA to begin a journey to recover memories of her childhood and dead father...she meets Michael...who is grieving about the tragic loss of his wife and only son. On the road, Michael picks Heidi up in his truck while travelling to his orange farm in Victoria...the relationship between her and Michael develops slowly...This is a visual film, rather than one that relies on dialog, and the scenery in the movie is wonderfully captured...The visuals are Australian to the core, and captured intensely by de Marigny’s outstanding camera-work...
