The Turning Reviews:

Ambition shines through each frame of The Turning, a long, spectacularly photographed happening that appropriates novelist Tim Winton's ebook of the same game into a brilliantly layered, thematic pastiche. It's one of the biggest and most epic Australian movies ever made. At three hours long, there are seventeen different, overlapping short films, by eighteen various directors, on display. There are episodes directed by the likes of Warick Thorton (Samson and Delilah), Robert Connolly (Balibo), Mia Wasikowska and David Wenham. Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne, Richard Roxburgh and Hugo Weaving, detail amongst the cast. Some of these stories follow the same hero at various stages of their lives but are played by various actors. It is not as confusing as it might sound as there is utter clarity in how these stories are told. It's entirely possible to play many of the short movies as separate tales without concern for the continuity of the characters. Tim Winton is an creator whose writing is primarily visual and dedicated to enriching the setting of the story. Here is an extract from his short storyline "The Turning": "It was now a brilliant autumn day. Sunshine felt pure and silky on her skin; it took her mind off the chipped tooth and her throbbing lip." The accuracy of the imagery in Winton's writing has invited an adaptation that is purely cinematic. The camera substitutes the author, hunting the same lvl of specificity in the photos so that the themes and the feelings of the characters often unfold without words. This is an enormously pretty film. Wide angles are used strikingly to heighten the scale and the atmosphere of the naturalistic environments. The camera draws in closer to frame key moments and images. There are slow-motion shots of beaches, water, dirt and sand. An AFL user stands in the middle of an oval, with a bow and arrow ready, thinking about his final goal. Water droplets fall from the skin of a person's back and waves threaten to strangle a boy as he clings to his surfboard. The technique of capturing these particular photos and then infusing them with dramatic narrative tension is nice and vivid. One of the another pleasures of the movie is the consistence in which many of the stories search thematic coherency. Beneath the highly stylised exteriors of the imagery are understated social comments and metaphorical observations. In one episode Cate Blanchett's hero and her mother in-law sneak into a backyard. They're not sure if they're at the right house but they jump in the swimming pool totally clothed anyway. Undercutting this funny moment is a glimpse into an alternative, frivolous life, where one gets along happily with their in-laws. Nostalgia and wonder are a huge part of Tim Winton's own writing. His short stories are like fragments of childhood memories, reproduced on paper. Likewise, these movie vignettes echo the sentiments of growing up so that the narratives feel dreamlike, providing distorted memories and reflections on adolescence and friendships. As the setting alternates between the sunburnt outback and the quiet banality of suburbia, both landscapes are subjected to hard themes, like alcoholism, domestic abuse, jealousy and self-satisfaction through religion. Despite the differing contexts, these themes are everytime visible and compelling, adjoining the stories through meaning, style and character. One of the greatest episodes is named "The Turning" and details Rose Byrne giving a terrific performance as a tattooed girl living in a trailer park, who is beat-up by her husband but finds solace in her fresh neighbours. Rose Byrne has been at the heart of a number of Hollywood comedies and her hero here is sometimes very funny too. Physically and verbally though, it is unlike anything she has ever played before. She's sadder and more tragic. Other nice entry is named "Fog" where a policeman gotta escort a young female journalist to locate a body in the bushland covered by a hazy fog. The atmosphere is utterly haunting, cold and desolate. The setting becomes a strong metaphor for the policeman beginning to lose sight of his moral bearings. It's other example of the movie balancing its sympathetic characters and the ambiguity of its subtext too. Despite the long running time, I hope that audiences will give the movie a possibility because although not all the episodes will be appealing, and there are some strange additions, many are beautifully crafted, forging subtle meanings from some highly special images. Very several movies are this epic in scope and ambition, while still able to sustain a cohesive series of thematic targets of universal and cultural appeal. It's a striking achievement in cinematic storytelling.


Overlong, overwrought and overly depressing The Turning is other example of an Australian movie or in this particular situation 18 mini-films existing for seemingly the sole reason to showcase just how sad and miserably us Aussie's can be and how life here is obviously just far too tough. With much talent and much promise behind this project it is therefore sad to admit that this 3 hour wannabe opus developed by Balibo director Robert Connolly is just such a miserable and tough watch.Based upon a collection of creator Tim Winton's short stories The Turning's ties that bind are all participants are alive and going through the motions, motions that rarely if ever detour from a soul hurting ambiance of depression that tinges the whole movie with such a sour taste it's difficult to see why it exists another than to test and be realistic and haunting but what we end up with is a movie that should act as some form of torture for those asked to sit down with it for 3 hours. This raggedly assembled collages of pain go from trailer trash domestic abuse cases, boy named "Bonar", cops caught up in corruption and creepy ginger children who like to enjoy with loaded rifles. These mini-episodes of grief and depravity are all so short and uninvolving that you forget that not only in front of the camera is talent but behind it also.Featuring a varied collection of some of Australia's favorite and greatest actors including Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Rose Byrne and Richard Roxburgh the movie promises to be a fine showcase to strut the acting ability of our nation but in the end product it would be suffice to tell that only Rose Byrne and Hugo Weaving create any sort of go at material that gotta of been difficult to work with. behind the camera also we have many fine Australian based directors in Justin Kurzel, Warwick Thornton and Tony Ayres along with actors David Wenham and Mia Wasikowska trying their hands at developing some great tiny tales of difficult lives. Many of the pieces are fine looking and detail a well constructed score but its difficult to suggest them on this alone.The Turning is a missed occasion that offered to gather together some of the finest movie centric folks Australia has to offer but thanks to a disjointed feel to the material, a reliance of being emotional rather than entertaining and a bunch of truly unneeded episodes the movie is just a finished train wreck that at 3 hours is a particular adventure you don't need to or could wish to take. All on screen and behind screen have done better and will do better in the future making The Turning a movie you can avoid without a second doubt.1 and a half depressing life snapshots out of 5 For more film reviews and opinions check out - www.jordanandeddie.wordpress.com


This is an Australian art-house movie or rather films. It is the concept of Robert Connelly who brought us the perfect 'Balibo' in 2009. He has brought together seventeen directors and writers to create a ver of the ebook 'The Turning' by Tim Winton. This is essentially a collection of short stories that all have the theme of 'turning' or changing and to tell it is a mixed bag is a heavy understatement.Each segment or 'chapter' has been made as a separate movie and that can be a bit confusing as you lose the flow of the overall piece; but that is highly intentional. The acting is all well above average with some notable performances. There are some themes that seem to be recurring, such as disfigurement, poetry, narration, regret and more over loss. The topics vary as much as anything else, including first love, hidden childhood memories, trailer parks, Jesus and Volks Wagens. We also have some modern interpretative dance - just to prove how art-house the entire ensemble is.Now as I told this is ambitious and in most respects that ambition is realised. However, this is 173 mins long and, as such, needed some commitment to stay the course. It could be the sum of all its parts but that too is a 'big ask' as is the colloquial these days. The parts are so various that I felt some were fully out of kilter with the rest and others almost stand alone stories. And I think that is the intention here, after all they are all short stories and so would wish to be both various and stand alone. But that is also the low mission as you will inevitably like some an terrible lot more than others.I am a fanatic of alternative and art-house cinema but this did require bearing with as I told it is nearly three hours long, but it is still a commendable effort but I would not be able to sit through it twice.
