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.

Patrick White earned a Nobel Prize for literature. Having read only oneof his novels and found it 'heavy', I was keen to see what someonecould do to The Eye of the Storm. Given the director was Fred Schepisi,I knew it would be 'different'. First find a screenwriter. Judy Morrisis an accomplished actor. I expected to see an 'actor's' film, withgreat lines and self-evident visuals. Yes, Judy Morris can write, andrather more clearly than Patrick White. Look for her in one of thescenes! Next find a cast. "Storm' has brilliant people. To nominatejust one, Helen Morse proves that she can sing and dance, skills thatI'd not seen before. Rush and Rampling carry the action, withAlexandra, Schepisi's daughter, a clever foil. Judy Davis has a facethat seems to accommodate any role.

No, I won't be reading this novel. What we see here is a great motionpicture. We've become accustomed to Australian films depicting poverty,isolation, and mayhem. This has an air of opulence and connectedness.

A slow burner but repays the effortReviewed bypercyporcelainVote: 8/10

Alright so it's a little 'literary' and the 70s it is ostensibly set in are a little wobbly (it's like you have to remind yourself periodically it's not contemporary), but this unusual family drama is full of surprises and twists as well as a rich and rewarding script that exposes and confronts all the petty squabbles and festering resentments of many a family, and which typically come to a head when a patriarch or matriarch (in this case, Charlotte Rampling) is on the way out. She is serene and strangely humorous, as if she's made her peace and has new insight, while children Basil (Geoffrey Rush) and Dorothy (Judy Davis) continue to clash egos, because both of them have them in spades! The kind of film you can revisit and probably find more each time.
