Although Jindabyne's cinematography features sweeping scenes of the Australian countryside as stunning as any of those opening shots from Brokeback Mountain, it ultimately has some bigger issues.

Less a moral dilemma than a meditation on the differences between men and women in matters of social decorum.
October 22, 2007
Intense relationship drama for adults only.

While it's most certainly not light viewing, and it's entirely devoid of 'Hollywood moments', this is a fine, intelligent, troubling film.
September 14, 2007
A whole lot of padding turns a fine enough story into a dour, wordy slog.
August 3, 2007
The film is novelistic in its nuance, in the patience of its storytelling and in the complexity of its mostly unhappy characters.

There is some great acting here, and some scenes do have an undercurrent of elemental power in them that tugs at your ankles. But the film never pulls you in.

"I do just what I want to do/ I want everything and I want you, too/I wish I could explain to you/But the things men without women do/You just don't understand."

The filmmakers do not feel the need to fill in every single blank for viewers by the time the credits roll. Just as in reality, these characters' problems are not going to be solved with the wave of a magic wand; there are no short cuts to happiness.

The movie's remaining revelations build slowly into a set of surprisingly powerful emotional beats.
June 19, 2007
Impressively directed, thoroughly engaging drama with terrific performances and a superb script. This is one of the best films of the year.

For all the pains it takes to establish mood and character, Jindabyne hides under its own uneasy surfaces; it never allows enough sense of what this community really is, of what's to be grieved when it comes apart.
June 14, 2007
Jindabyne is not about just one murder but about the death by a thousand cuts that happens in its aftermath.
June 12, 2007
Apart from a contrived ending, Jindabyne comes as close as can be to a perfect drama.
June 8, 2007
A fish tale worth telling and worth hearing.
June 8, 2007
It's safe to describe Jindabyne as a haunted movie.
