REVIEWS

Bursting with off-beat humour, this brilliantly cast short film manages to highlight the ways in which parents routinely squash their children’s confidence whilst also revealing suburban Australia’s usually hidden fear of the growing Asian populace.

– Interfilm Berlin, on Bruce Lee Played Badminton Too.

Happy Country is warm and funny and the voice is original and clear…it explores the fact that humour is often the last thing to travel across cultures. This is subtle and nuanced story telling well handled.

– Sue Brookes, Director of Japanese Story

Wonder Boy beautifully captures a child caught between two cultures, two worlds. It entertained me, made me laugh out loud several times, educated, informed me as to migrants’ difficulties and experiences in moving to and growing up here in Australia…A clever script is perfectly realised by its writer-director. The narrative has layers, meanings to it and that’s hard to achieve in a short film.

– John Ruane, Director of Death in Brunswick

Wonder boy is sweet, engaging, and assured…it is told with wit, intelligence, and a minimum of didacticism. It is warm without being saccharine and carefully and confidently structured.

– Joel Anderson, Director of Lake Mungo

Bruce Lee Played Badminton Too was so funny. But we think you can make more money if you made horror films.
