This was odd. It wasn’t exactly a murder mystery either.
It is set in Australia. An Australian Aboriginal man dies under mysterious circumstances. A rather cut and dried lawyer is asked to defend him. He does and begins questioning the witnesses and his client. The stories don’t make sense, and he probes further.
There is much more going on than meets the eye going on here. The developing mood builds with lots of quiet – very effective. All of the actors and non-actors are convincing and the story-line is ambitious. The ending was unsatisfying but interesting.
I don’t exactly recommend it, unless you enjoy cinematic oddities.
