The Turning Reviews

Cate Blanchett and Rose Byrne desperate housewives down under. And as much an ordeal for admittedly clueless audiences unfamiliar with the source material as for the characters. But for those with patience, the periodic pleasures of these bracing yarns.

Who knew that the next great Australian film would actually be a constellation of 17 smaller ones? It's not easy viewing but it is beautiful viewing.

The work creates its own rhythms and moods, and weaves a rich tapestry of human experience that keeps us engaged. That is the film's achievement

The film's striking landscape is like a winding road that links the thoughts, ideas and senses evoked by Tim Winton's stories as themes of regret, guilt and renewal wind their way through the diverse narratives

A bold and visionary cinema project, that evokes the Australian landscape with a collection of nostalgic haunted and very real characters.

The Popcorn Junkie

A sumptuous film that encapsulates a broad emotional spectrum within the Australian experience

October 1, 2013

Disjointed and unsatisfying. While some stories soar - the titular vignette is stirring and beautiful - too many others fall flat or get lost in the search for profundity as characters spend an inordinate amount of time staring into the middle distance.

A work that maintains a remarkably consistent tone throughout - one of melancholy, regret, and longing.

While The Turning didn't fully satisfy my cinematic appetite, at least it's bold enough to be different. I'm glad to have seen it.

FILMINK (Australia)

An admirably ambitious endeavour, which shines with talent on both sides of the camera, but may prove testing due to its sprawling length.

A tighter adaptation of Winton's book, helmed by one, possibly two filmmakers, would have sufficed. As a collective, it feels weighed down by its own remit.

The magical thing about Tim Winton's The Turning is how consistently good it is. That it occasionally touches greatness makes it miraculous.
