Movie Info

Melina is making the 18-hour bus journey to be with her estranged, ailing father. He's one of the lost, lonely men who hunt for black opals, deep in the Australian outback. She's not entirely sure why she's there, or why she stays, but as Melina is drawn ever further into the community, she discovers that there's more to these men than she first assumed -- and perhaps even more to herself.

Critic Reviews for Strange Colours

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6)

  • Watch [Strange Colours] in a double bill with Wake in Fright to see just how different the outback can seem - charmingly eccentric one day, utterly terrifying the next - just by tilting your head in a certain way.

  • It is tantalising to consider what the director might come up with working with a more pronounced narrative. But subsequent films made in the style of Strange Colours are also an exciting proposition.

    November 23, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A very specific sense of place comes across strongly in Lodkina's minimalist yet striking film.

    November 26, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A remarkable first feature from Alena Lodkina [but] as with too many Australian films, it has dropped into cinemas suddenly and with almost no fanfare. Regrettably, it is likely to drop out in much the same manner.

    November 25, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • From the quietly exhilarating first cut - the pristine night sky above to an otherworldly mechanical excavation below ground - Strange Colours reveals a natural filmmaker who brings her own vision to the Australian landscape.

    November 21, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The plot as a whole is less like a conventional story and more akin to the plot of land on which Max's home sits, waiting for the tales of the characters to grow on it organically."
