Tonight we had an opportunity to see an Australian film from 1966. It was somewhat of a revelation to see the film, “They’re a Weird Mob” which was released 50 years ago.
Here is the Wikipedia entry about it. Take a look. It is certainly like nothing I have seen before and had a very predictable plot, if you could call it that.
However, it was funny, sad and frustrating as well as rather topical in the way that Australians deal with large-scale immigration. While we generally think that we have progressed as a society in the last 50 years, I felt that we have actually regressed in some ways.
I remember watching this movie in New Zealand about 35 years ago – loved it.
I enjoyed it, too. 🙂
