Set during the aftermath of the Cronulla riots in Australia, it is thestory of how two carloads of adversaries seeking revenge accidentallymeet. It is described as black comedy but technically that is incorrectbecause, by definition, a comedy has to be funny and the laughs in themovie are not only sparse but not very funny. The fact that the storyis slow and quite boring doesn't help. The film has received somecritical praise in Australia, but I'm of the opinion that it's onlybecause Australian cinema is currently in a severe lull.
Perhaps it's aimed at a young audience, who may even enjoy it. I'm inmy fifties and found it dull. Seriously consider waiting until a TVrelease and be disappointed then. At least you can change channels.
