If you are interested in knowing more about australian history, and the tragic consequences of white settlement for the aboriginal people, this is a good film to start with.
The moral complexities of the tragedy are reminicent of the recent film "dead heart". I would also recommend the film "walkabout".
There is something about the way the lead aboriginal character holds a certain kind of quiet dignity that is heartbreaking to watch. I do not agree with leonard maltin that this film fails to pack a dramatic punch. This is a beautiful and emotional film, and i would recommend it as part of any film studies course that is dealing with the australian genre.
