A forgotten gem of Australian bizareness
31 July 2003 | by VSandsSee all my reviews

Beautifully photographed b&w surreal black comedy is set in an Australian Public Service office in the early 70s where hierarchy and gender divisions quiver portentously, prematurely climaxing in disaster in the yearly swillathon. Real human beings emerge from public service straightjackets. A forgotten gem of Australian bizarreness. Director Cowan went on to make rampaging-female-convicts-return-to-nature pic Journey Among Women and film Winter of Our Dreams.
