Movie Info

Television-honed Aussie director Shawn Seet helms this contemporary domestic drama about the events that befall a family of Sicilian immigrants in their adopted home of Perth, Western Australia. Though the son of the Argo clan, twentysomething Anthony (Daniel Amalm), enjoys his life as a top-tiered boxer and a nightclub doorman, he harbors disturbing ingrained attitudes toward life - notably the idea that violence is the most acceptable and effective way to resolve conflict. Anthony soon meets

Seet wraps up all the story elements with an economy that suggests a natural story-telling talent has been discovered.

The screenwriter, Rai Fazio, of Sicilian background, was a boxer from the age of four, trained by his father. So he knows what he's talking about.

Boxer turned screenwriter Rai Fazio tries hard to create a father-son boxing drama based on his own experiences, but instead turns out a clichéd genre piece nicely shot with an edgy hand-held style

It's a familiar tale, but the performances are strong, particularly that of Fantastichini, and it's directed with real confidence by Shawn Seet. The film delivers.

Two Fists, One Heart is an audacious, big-hearted genre piece; it punches above its weight at times, but by the final rounds of its inevitable denouement, it's firing on all cylinders.

With his deftly applied yet unassuming sense of style, Seet has given us one of the most polished Australian films to come along in some time.

Brandishes the type of confidence, commercial appeal and clarity of vision all too seldom seen in Australian cinema. We should be producing movies like this 10 times a year, not once in a blue moon.

An admirable achievement, really impressive on all levels.

The themes are universal, and the simple (but not simplistic) story is delivered with considerable verve by debuting director Shawn Street and an ensemble cast that makes it zing.

Audience Reviews for Two Fists, One Heart

This story should be called an Australian Rocky. Daniel Amalm and Jessica Marais were all good in their roles, however Rai Fazio and some of his mates could do with more acting lessons. And the boxing scenes are fantastic that reminded me of the past boxing movies.
