Film Review

Little Fish, the 2005 film from Australian director Rowan Woods is an intimate drama that follows the life of Tracy Heart portrayed by Cate Blanchett and her family and close friends. Each character in this drama are each trying to cope with a shattered past and still keep going in the present. Blanchett puts in another strong performance as Tracy, once again transforming into the character and letting the audience join her to the film's conclusion. All of the actors do a solid job. This film's plot is not one that is easy to follow with varying implied details, however the overall themes of family, love, regret, and dreams come through with the performances. Overall a very well paced, well directed and acted film. The DVD contains a 20 minute behind the scenes that explains the character motivations and storyline further.Grade: A-

I gave this movie 4 out of 10…and it only got that because it is an Australian film and I am very patriotic. OI OI OI!This movie should have been released with a warning…. will cause drowsiness!!! What can I say about the plot?? Well to begin with, it didn't have much of one. The beginning is much the same as the ending….the story doesn't go anywhere and it doesn't go anywhere extremely slowly. That hour and a half felt like a week. This story could have been expanded, more could have been done with the characters. Instead, the characters were left to wallow, no growth or purpose at all. And by the time I was halfway through, I was praying for a door to door salesman to ring my doorbell to get away from it. I even started daydreaming about the housework I could have been doing instead of wasting time watching this movie. I admit to watching it right through to the end, only because I had hoped to see some kind of improvement in characters and script…and was not sur…

I was drawn into the movie because of the cast, a powerhouse trio in Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving and Sam Neill. Other than that, the story took a while before it became interesting, and the pace was somewhat too slow for me.Telling the story of an ex-dug addict Tracy Heart (Blanchett), it brings to mind the Yellow Ribbon project. It hammers home the reality that despite talk of the giving of second chances, in the world of today, just how many would offer that helping hand? Seeking a bank loan itself to finance a business proposition, is an Everest to climb.The story dwells on the conflicts within her family, the present situation that looks so bleak without opportunities, the disgraceful past, and how the characters have to live with the skeletons in the closet. It was a little dry in presentation, and dragged with a number of scenes. What made it interesting was the ending itself, somewhat tense and not knowing which way it will result in.And that locking of lips between Weaving an…
