Writer Jacqueline Perske and Director Rowan Woods chalk up anothersuccessful Australian film in LITTLE FISH, an intense, very personaldrama about how illegal drugs affect communities, families andindividuals. The story begs patience from the viewer as it isgratefully one that does not spell everything out for the viewer, butinstead introduces the characters slowly and with hints of backgroundsthat bring them to the moments of crisis the time-frame of the filmuses.

Taking place in the Little Saigon area of Sydney, Tracy Heart (CateBlanchett) is a recovered junkie who lives with her mother Janelle(Noni Hazlehurst) and partial amputee brother Ray (Martin Henderson),each trying to make ends meet in a life previously destroyed by drugaddiction. Tracy has been clean for four years, works in a video storebut has dreams of owning her own business, dreams that are thwarted bybanks refusing to give her business loans solely on the basis of herprevious addiction. Ray, his amputated leg the result of a car accidentsomehow connected with drugs, still sells heroin in 'little fish'containers, occasionally calling upon Tracy to make pickups anddeliveries. The now absent stepfather Lionel (Hugo Weaving) fights hisown addiction both to drugs and to his dealer Brad (Sam Neill) withwhom he has been in a gay relationship since his divorce from Janelle.Tracy tries to support Lionel's attempts to kick his habit, but theattempts are failures. Everything comes to a head when 1) Tracy isdesperate without her needed bank loan, 2) Tracy's Vietnamese ex-loverJonny (Dustin Nguyen) returns from Vancouver where his family sent himto avoid the persecution of rehab in Sydney, 3) Brad retires leavingLionel without a source of drugs or love and Lionel is replaced by aquasi-normal Steven (Joel Tobeck) who kicks the last part of the filminto a spin. There are no solutions to anyone's problems: things justhappen and the characters respond in the best way they can with theominous cloud of drug addiction shading their lives and futures.

The script is terse and smart and the direction is relentlesslyrealistic and well paced. Cate Blanchett gives a sterling portrayal ofthe very complex Tracy, and Hugo Weaving, Noni Hazelhurst, Sam Neill,Dustin Nguyen, and Martin Henderson are superb. This is a tough littlefilm that does not fear to examine the truth about the effect of drugson people's lives and spirits. It is a very fine film. Recommended.Grady Harp

crap about a bunch of losersReviewed bybrianoh2Vote: 1/10

Crap about a bunch of losers. Depressing, uninteresting, and boring.

Set in Sydney, Australia.

It beats me why Sam Neill and Cate Blanchet would participate in such dribble.

Cate's boyfriend, another junkie, returns from Canada to work as a stockbroker.

Her brother, another junkie, was injured badly in a car accident. It appears that the car was driven by the boyfriend.

Nothing interesting or original or entertaining.

In addition, it appears that Cate was a former junkie and who appears to be her old man wants help getting drugs because he also is badly hooked.

Just crap and more crap.

Good actors don't make a bad screenplay a good movie.

excellent actingReviewed bygsygsyVote: 7/10

This is an interesting movie, well worth seeing, even though it has substantial failings. Evenness of pace is probably its most debilitating aspect: the slow, steady plod to the climax prevents that climax from being quite as climactic as it should be. Also, the director and his DOP are too in love with the hand-held camera for their own good: too much of it really is irritating, and there is much too much of it in this film. Having said that, there are some wonderful shots and juxtaposition of shots, moving us from warm reds to cool blues and back again. As far as the plot is concerned, the characters are all too neatly slotted into it, emphasising the story's artificiality, which plays against naturalism of the acting, just as the snappy editing plays against the hand-held camera-work. .Compare and contrast THE USUAL SUSPECTS, which is so wonderfully artificial throughout that its story's twists, turns and games, and the theatrical turns from most of its cast add up to something very entertaining. LITTLE FISH, in the end, perhaps takes itself a little too seriously.

That's the carping out of the way. The good news is that the acting is terrific. Blanchett is a rare leading actress, capable of convincing us she's an ordinary working girl - one simply can't imagine, for example, Kidman taking this role on and making it so real and touching. Sam Neill, cast against type, is wonderfully loathsome. Martin Henderson, Dustin Nguyen, Joel Tobeck - all give top-class support. But the revelation is Hugo Weaving, who is magnificent as the drug-addicted former star-sportsman. Can this be the same actor who has been marking his time in THE MATRIX and LORD OF THE RINGS? Amazingly, it is. A totally convincing transformation. All in all, an only just better-than-average thriller, greatly enhanced by its actors.
