Yeah I know what your saying.
I just did an essay on Australian Identity for english, an I acturally believe that it depends on who you are and what expericences you have. The people in the finshed people come from low-income families in western Sydney alright.
But they would be brought up differently to the people living in a middle-class fmaily in Morisset NSW (like me), even though the area is poor, we are not full of crime and drugs, but we are not the sterotype outback crocodiles hunters either. Is there such thing as NORMAL in Australian film?
Becasue its either depressing 'The finshed People', A bunch of surfing preteen minded idiots 'Home and away' or sterotype crocodile outback, 'g'day mate' (like crocodile dundee)
So yes, kalit-1 I agree.
My top Aussie films that i like are:
One Perfect Day
The Hard Word
Rage In Placid Lake
