Makes one want to explore the outback.

I'm sorry, but I didn't like the movie. I thought it was overrated.

I also LOVED the movie...loved seeing the outback any yes the storyline was a tad predictable....but who cares....All the scenery (& HJ) made up for that.

The young aboriginal boy Brandon Walters was just brilliant.

I could have sat and watched it for another hour.....

We watched the movie for the first time at the moonlight cinema in Kings Park with the sounds of the bush in the back-ground and thought it was great. It is a highly entertaining film, set in amazing scenery.

We saw it again on a flight from Sydney to Perth on one of those tiny airplane screens and unusually the kept the movie running as we landed because it hadn't finished - the final gun-shot was timed perfectly with the wheels hitting the ground. The crew got a round of applause for keeping it on 'til the end.

We now have the DVD!

I did find it pretty confronting though.

I guess you mean because of the stolen generation - Rabbit Proof Fence is a true story based on 3 kids experience of the stolen generation and also very confronting, it is also another good Aussie movie with some spectacular imagery.

We thought it was great movie too, despite any historical inaccuracies etc & the scenery very inspirational. we saw it at the movies & now have the dvd.

Never seen the Man From Snowy river, but have had a movie Sampson and Delilah recommended to me.
I do understand tastes are different, thank whoever for that.
