The Tracker

This afternoon I went to see the new Australian film The Tracker, starring David Gulpilil, at the Rivoli. It is beautifully shot, and takes on a dark and important part of Australia’s history – the persecution of the Aboriginal people. The story is at times a bit thin I think, and some of the scenes are too drawn out, but I enjoyed it.

Too bad I missed another Australian film on the same theme, Rabbit Proof Fence, when it was showing earlier this year, but I hope I’ll get a chance to see it soon.
