synopsis


Meryl imagines disaster coming from every direction—train crashes, man-eating sharks, baby-eating killer whales...and then there's Nick. An innovative mix of animation and live action, set over a scorchingly hot weekend, when people dealing with unexpected events find their lives intersecting. Nick (William McInnes) visits a doctor for a routine medical and is given a devastating diagnosis but has to wait until Monday for specialist advice. Meryl (Justine Clarke), returning from a funeral, has until Monday to finish her project or lose her job. Andy (Anthony Hayes) is thrown by his girlfriend's ultimatum and has to consider the news of her unplanned pregnancy. The convergence of their paths creates an intriguing picture, intimate, universal and uplifting.

I liked this film a lot. It's a simple story yet the characters seemed very real to me. Stylistically I loved the use of photography, and didn't mind the animation at all. It really worked to help visualise the main characters' inner worlds. Looking forward to seeing Sarah Watt's next film My Year Without Sex.

I am always excited at the prospect of an Australian film I've not yet seen. With no expectations, I found this one confronting from the beginning. The animations were quite 'in your face', but very well done. Although I found the main characters endearing, I reached the end of the movie with little resolution or satisfaction. I'm not convinced that seeing it again would help matters - but maybe...
