One of the users whose review I have just read wrote that he/she really wanted to like the movie... I had the same problem... Hugo Weaving whose amazing performance in V For Vendetta I saw just before,Cate Blanchett who is always worth watching and admiring, Sam Neill... And a trailer that intrigued me, promising an interesting story... Yes, yes, I know, I am naive... never judge a movie by a trailer... But I just couldn't help it... it reminded me of Me and You and Everyone we know, a movie that I really really liked... But, after watching Little fish, I felt nothing... Maybe a bit of confusion, because I wasn't sure what to think, after a movie that gives you nothing to think about... I felt empty, and sorry for the time I spent watching it... A movie with no story... I felt sorry for those great actors... They deserve better, cause they always give their best. So I have no objections to their job, brilliant as always... But that is definitely not enough to make me say this is a good movie...

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.
This film is closer to defining an inexplicable cinematic logic than previous glossy efforts Lantana and Sommersault, but the treatment of subject still lacks authentic voice or original vision.
All the performances are outstanding -- but the casting (particularly of Cate Blanchett as an x-junkie) feel reminiscent of masterworks theatre version of kitchen sink working class drama. Add Sam Neill and Noni -- and there is definitely something theatrical about the casting choices. However -- all actors do their stellar best to invoke/convey appropriate emotions. Hugo, however, manages to rise above the script's tawdry dialogue to find some truth and humour in the material.
On the subject of scenario / dialogue: Australian film of late has been obsessed by external plot and this one film DOES suffer also from this problem. The writer / script-editors have overfed this monster with too many allusions to drama, hitches and heists without any real internal conflict.
There is one sequence that almost works cinematically -- Blanchett's character entering the theatre undecided about what to do with the drugs. This is the one time the director trusts the audience to be intelligent enough to make their own opinions about the motivation of the characters internal world. It is also the one time we see her character feel a bit dirty and human....not the do-gooding martyr we so often see on the Australian screen.
All the stuff with the pool (underwater et al) and the references to the title "Little Fish" feel horribly forced/sentimental and bear no real emotional or intellectual impact for this audience member. However -- much of this fault can be blamed on the overly graphic/advertising cinema style. Funky colourisation, dutch tilts, unnecessary cutting for adrenalin/pace issues create a montage effect that is both dull and heartless.
And while the final sequence is more reminiscent of a private medical health fund commercial than something of great truth or cinematic originality...a bold untainted heart still manages to rise from the material. For this -- the film should be congratulated.
The second film from the director of The Boys is a slight disappointment but not altogether terrible. Perhaps he was missing the genius and guiding influence of Wenham on set.
