While it is true that many great movies are created in Hollywood, there are dozens of wonderful movies produced around the world that do not receive nearly enough attention or accolades. One such region that has been under-represented for years is Australia. Several of the world’s greatest films are Australian movies. The five movies described below are merely a sampling of some of these esteemed films. 1. The Interview Famous Australian actor Hugo Weaving stars alongside Tony Martin in this exciting thriller. This 1998 film won the Australian Film Institute Award for best original screenplay and best film. In addition, Hugo Weaving captured the 1998 award for best actor. The movie revolves around a petty criminal (Hugo Weaving) who is suspected of .mitting a more serious crime, and questioned thoroughly by a top investigator (Tony Martin). Plot twists keep the audience constantly guessing as to what, exactly, Hugo Weaving’s character is guilty of. 2. The Year My Voice Broke This movie has often been hailed as the best Australian film in the last 25 years. The 1987 Australian Film Institute’s choice for Best Film stars Noah Taylor and Loene Carmen, and was based on director John Duigan’s childhood.

It explores racial tension, Nazi concepts of "genetic purity", life on the fringe, kinship and friendship against a backdrop of violence, fear and pressure to conform. 4. Strictly Ballroom Few romantic .edies from Australia have received the notoriety of Strictly Ballroom. The brainchild of director Baz Lurhmann and based on a 1986 stage play, this film is about an Australian ballroom dancer named Scott, played by Paul Mercurio. Scott’s family has an extensive ballroom history, and as such, are angered when Scott attempts to use his own style of dance that is not "strictly ballroom." Similarly, the ballroom .munity resists Scott"s attempts to innovate and his passion for self-expression alienates him from his long term partner and leads to personal crisis. The dancing is a joy to watch and for ballroom insiders and voyeurs is both a delight to watch as well as hitting very close to home. 5. Harvie Krumpet Although only 23 minutes long, the Harvie Krumpet movie is considered one of the best animations of all time. The claymation movie film won the Academy Award for Animate Short Film in 2003, among other prestigious awards. It tells the story of Harvek Milos Krumpetzki, a World War II refugee who escapes to Australia, where he shortens his name to simply Harvie Krumpet. The movie demonstrates the importance of optimism, despite seemingly awful circumstances. Australian films may not be as well known as more famous movies from America (with huge marketing budgets behind them), but so many of them are nevertheless worth seeing. These five great Australian films represent merely the tip of the large iceberg that is output of the Australian film industry. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
