    Thanks for posting this film, I never knew it existed. I lived in boarding houses in St Kilda where this was shot and worked as a taxi driver in Melbourne at the time this film was made so it was very familiar, I even knew one of the cast. A terrific little independent movie that caught the time and place of Melbourne in the late 80’s. A downbeat, gritty, intelligent little film eschewing the tendency of most Australian films of this time to make caricatures and cliches of its characters or to glamorise their surroundings.
