Australia's official submission into this year's Greatest Foreign Language genre at the Academy Awards, famed director Rolf de Heer's raw, uncompromising and impressively pretty movie is easy the most accomplished and necessary tale to come from our shores in quite some time and acts as a very private adventure for one of our country's most recognisable actors, David Gulpilil.To understand the power of Charlie's Country and the saying nature of its tale, one gotta look into how the movie eventuated and what it harboured for Gulpilil in particular. Despite his success as an actor that started off in Nic Roeg's Walkabout in 1971, Gulpilil had found himself on difficult times, the victim as sadly many indigenous folks face in the country of alcohol abuse that saw him incarcerated in a federal penitentiary. Mates for many years after their collaborations in 2002's The Tracker and 2006's Ten Canoes (Australian film's worthy of being tracked down) de Heer visited Gulpilil in jail where the seeds of Charlies Country were formed when Gulpilil expressed a nice desire to once more work with his mate and director. From there a storyline that was close to Gulpilil's heart began to be formed and it's where the quiet understated power of de Heer's work stems from.With a mere look, or with the camera following his each transport through the vast beauty of the Australian outback or the more scary surrounds of Darwin, Gulpilil commands the screen and de Heer controls this wonderfully, not at all scared to allow Gulpilil's face say us all we need to know. In what is undoubtedly a match between the actor and the true man, Gulpilil inhabits this boy Charlie with a grace and understanding as he struggles to come to grips with his mother country slowly but surely coming under more influence from the white man. This tiny scale storyline of one man's trials and tribulations masks a much larger overall trouble Australia has at its core regarding the treatment of our indigenousness folks and a failure to properly combine the old and the fresh without losing the connection to the land and customs that for thousands of years have been integral to the culture of these people. All these elements within Charlie's Country enjoy out in such a manner that never becomes overbearing, for there is subtle humour here (water buffalo anyone?) and grace from all involved that gives Charlie's Country not only a heart but a recognisable humanity.It shouldn't be surprising that Charlie's Country is a finely crafted and effective movie, for de Heer has long shown his ability to make memorably moving movies and his previous collaborations with Gulpilil are some of the finest ever made in this country concerning indigenous culture. From Gulpilil's award worthy turn (which was rewarded with a Greatest Actor victory at this year's Cannes Un Certain Regard festival), Graham Tardif's pretty piano score and de Heers professional direction, this is Australian filmmaking and storytelling at its greatest and a moving portrait of modern day life in the harsh realities of the outback and the lives our indigenous folks live in particular.4 and a half hand crafted spears out of 5 For more film reviews and opinions check out - www.jordanandeddie.wordpress.com
This film provides an insight into a globe that is hard for many folks to see or understand. The movie is beautifully shot, and the scenes and sounds of Australia are magical. The acting is first rate, and the script is very clever. Many of the things Charlie tells to European Australians don't create much sense, but in this film we are able to understand what Charlie is thinking when he tells these things, and so we understand perfectly what is meant by each sentence he utters. The sense of longing, and of loneliness is palpable, as is the passionate love of country. The dance scenes with the kids are uplifting and lovely. This is a moving and pretty film, and a large bridge for building understanding and empathy for a various and valuable culture.
I saw this film with no true concept what I will discover. It presents the struggle of the aboriginal communities and what they face each day. Turned in South Australia mainly it is supposed to represent the Northern zone at its worst in a way... Humidity, Rain, Harsh sunny day and so on. Oh well except that part the movie itself is a nice drama about two culture in contradiction and the struggle that goes with as a result. It has some sense of humor (some wink to crocodile Dundee too) but also some hidden message if you can analyze every stage presented to you. Charlies's country will create you laugh, cry (my girlfriend did), revolt you sometimes. It will certainly not allow you out of emotions. For some it might be a bit slow to start, but hang on to your seat it is just the method it is supposed to be and if you create it to the end you will end up with lots of material to debate with. A true marvel, a real jewel of simplicity. I really enjoyed this film and cannot suggest this one enough. If you are Australian or living in Australia go watch this movie. For the rest of the globe it might be other storyline but as a storyline it still a nice one.
