News & Interviews for Little Fish
Critic Reviews for Little Fish
It's a sober, sensitive film ... about degrees of dependency, grief, guilt, recrimination and recuperation.
A small film with a big cast, Little Fish is notable for its performances.
If you say you'd watch Cate Blanchett in anything, here's your chance to prove it.
Cate Blanchett sinks into the role of a recovering drug addict in a thorny, compelling drama from Australia.
The actors are terrific, especially Weaving, who plays bottoming out as a tragedy spiked with gallows humor, and Blanchett, who digs deep into the booby-trapped nature of recovery. The revelation, however, is Rowan Woods, a major filmmaker in the making.
While Little Fish takes a turn for the generic in its final act, solid acting, an atmospheric soundtrack, and flare-filled cinematography more beautiful than an Apple screensaver are enough to keep the film afloat.
Audience Reviews for Little Fish
A very gritty Australian film, with of plenty of natural performers. Slow moving at times, but a story that was kind of unavoidable, in your face and was told with a lot of reality.
I recognize Little Fish's failures, but for some reason I found it utterly heartbreaking.
An all-star Australian cast work this wonderfully scripted drama to its full extent. What starts of as a complex drama soon turns into that of a crime drama. It is to the films credit that the evolution of genres is handled rather well and goes mostly unnoticed. The film relies more on subtle hints to the past of the characters, and even leaves us with an ending that needs some thinking about. This may not be to everyone's liking but it really does make it a more involving piece. It's gorgeously shot, with lighting used coming off as something other-worldly with great beams shining down from street lights and headlights. A great drama that doesn't quite have a conclusion that the film hints towards earlier on.
