I can't see anyone under 50 even being remotely interested in this"Patrick White In Drag" type film (to quote another IMDb user). The 2hours reminded me of those hours spent in non air- conditioned portableclassrooms (for me, in the late 60's) wading through arcane Englishliterature classes wherein Patrick White was regarded as "worthy"...or"significant".

"Storm" has all the features we have come to expect from "quality"Australian film-making - a great cast, polished direction, impeccableproduction values etc etc ... but it's as dull and disconnected as theworld White writes about. Who really gives a stuff about an implodinggrazing family presided over by a a dying monster ... nominally set inthe 1970s, but really (as in most of White's writing) set in the 1930s?

On a $15m budget ... it probably needs a world wide gross of $100m tobreak even. Ye Gods - who green-lit this? How much Government fundingwent into it? (Its $1.6m domestic gross should just about pay for thePrints and Advertising" budget & little more).

We have a bustling new generation - make that two generations - offilm-makers pushing the envelope and making "Animal Kingdom","Daybreakers", "Red Dog" etc who seem to be at least aware of theiraudience and their responsibility for getting a return for theirinvestors. Film-making is an expensive business ... and "Storm" is justa sad old melodrama, outdated, over-priced and isolated from the realworld, doomed to fail financially. I can understand why audiencescongratulate themselves for having sat through it ("splendid andintelligent" - another IMDb post), but it's just an Anglo middle classstatement from people who are longing for the days of "Careful He MightHear You" or "The Devil's Playground".

At least the English Class in those old portables only lasted 50minutes...

I bought this DVD on a whim and last night sat down to watch it. I'velong been a fan of the three main actors, so knew it would beworthwhile, and could be stunning. I was not disappointed. CharlotteRampling has always excelled in playing the really nasty person youcan't imagine ever meeting, and in this she does not disappoint. It'sunfortunate that she is not in her eighties or even seventies, becauseas one reviewer has noted, she's only a few years older than her'children' in this. Geoffrey Rush is like chocolate, smooth andirresistible, and he uses this charm, but also reveals himself as aloser (we're talking character here)and with vulnerabilities. JudyDavis tries to be a hard-bitten bitch but until the end wants hermother to love her. True, the carers of the old woman love her morethan her children - as is so often the case - and the lawyer and hiswife straddle the divide between the two attitudes. It's a fascinatinghuman story, with the flashbacks being non-intrusive and essential tothe story. I loved it, but I've not read the book or know any of thebackground aspects. I don't enjoy the cinema so much nowadays, so towatch a good quality drama on the appliance in the corner is a joy.

THE EYE OF THE STORM has so much going for it that it seems a shamethat it likely will not draw audiences in the theaters now that it hasbeen released in this country. Thanks to Amazon's Video on Demand itcan be watched in the home without the usual distractions of thetheater audience more interested in texting and eating than in beingwilling to follow a strong story for two hours. It is another jewel ofa film from Australia and perhaps in art houses it will be appreciated.

The story is adapted by Judy Morris from the Nobel Prize winning novelby Patrick White (1912 -1990), an Australian author who is widelyregarded as one of the most important English-language novelists of the20th century. White's fiction employs humor, florid prose, shiftingnarrative vantage points and a stream of consciousness technique. In1973, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, the only Australianto have been awarded the prize. 'The Eye of the Storm' is the ninthpublished novel by Patrick White and it is regarded as one of his bestnovels.

The elderly Elizabeth Hunter (Charlotte Rampling), widow of a wealthygrazier, is nearing the end of her days in some splendor in her mansionin Sydney, Australia, and her two children have been summoned to herbedside. Her son Basil (Geoffrey Rush), once a leading actor on theLondon stage whose career is now in decline and her daughter Dorothy(Judy Davis), the ex-wife of a minor French aristocrat whose fracturedmarriage has ended with her only asset being the retention of her titleof Princess, are motivated more by their possible inheritance thanaffection for the old lady. In fact Elizabeth inspires more affectionin her nurses (Alexandra Schepisi, Maria Theodorakis), her solicitor(John Gaden) and her tragic cabaret- entertaining housekeeper (HelenMorse) than she does in her children. Dorothy in particular has causeto hate her mother for secrets not immediately revealed ('Dorothy wasbreathless with resentment for what she herself could no more thanhalf-remember, had perhaps only half discovered - on the banks of theocean'), yet it is she who gets closer to her mother as the filmprogresses. Elizabeth is a shrewishly controlling woman and her descentinto dementia only reminds everyone involved with her of the damagedchildhood, marriage and life she has led. The manner in which the storycome sot an end is somewhat surprising and in many ways rewards theviewer for the attention it takes.

The film is laid out in flashback scenes to manage the histories of allinvolved and the interior monologues that slowly build the full imagesof each f the characters and their inherent flaws. The acting isexcellent, the cinematography is gorgeous, and the story isfascinating. If it doesn't exactly match the density of the novel byWhite then the ones who seem to be responsible of that are the directorFred Schepisi and the screenwriter Judy Morris. It is a tough story andif the viewer can maintain the level of concentration the film demands,then this is a most satisfying experience.
