Movie Info

From Australia's most acclaimed playwright, David Williamson, a moving and powerful new film about lies, betrayal, sex and bullying in the workplace. A young construction worker rams into the back of his boss's Jaguar in a fit of anger at being sacked. Rather than fronting court, he's given the chance to explain his actions in a community conference. This face-to-face confrontation between the young man, his boss, his boss's wife, co-workers, best mate and mother lifts the lid not only on his

Face to Face will never be mistaken for the most exciting film of the year, but it's a bold one nonetheless that rewards viewers with spiky wordplay and tart performances.

With the ensemble cast all instinctively attuned to Williamson's clever contrasting of the realities on the factory floor with the delusions of head office, Face to Face stares down doubters with pure intent.

The strengths of Face to Face far outweigh its shortcomings. A smart blend of social satire and moral think piece, it's resonant Australian movie-making best suited to a mature audience.

Initial distracting staginess aside, Face to Face is compelling cinema that showcases a marvellous group of performers.

Rymer's adaptation is a mixed bag. The film is well cast and played and it eventually achieves a compelling emotional power, but it's laborious.

But, apart from an excess of hugging, which Hakim objects to too, this is a really riveting piece of drama which barely tests the talents of Michael Rymer as director, but my goodness he does a good job here.

Despite being unable to break free of its theatrical origins, the film is never dull.

For a film that is still mostly just people in a room talking -- and more importantly, for a low-budget Australian drama, a category that often rings alarm bells -- Face to Face impresses in just about every way.

Thematically rich and brilliantly performed, this is compelling and entertaining viewing, and also has something worth saying.

What appeared simple (an angry young man lashing out against his boss for firing him) grows in complexity and intensity as the characters are made to reveal motives and grudges, weaknesses and ambitions that have festered beneath the surface

With its endless stream of dramatic revelations, Michael Rymer's Face to Face is gripping cinema
