That's Not Me strikes a perfect balance between silly and smart, accessible and fantastic, and local and global that make it in many ways one of the most promising and original Australian films in years
'That's Not Me' manages to remain as hopeful as it is grounded and as cheeky as it is awkward...
That's not such a bad way to describe That's Not Me - a $60,000 Trojan horse of a film, fairly bursting with comedy, humanity and interesting ideas.
Foulcher, meanwhile, conveys low self-esteem with the comedic flair of a Kristin Wiig.
This is a clever, funny, perceptive movie that pokes its nose into the bizarre business of filmmaking, and the sometimes wacky world of sibling rivalry.
It's starting to feel like the 1980s again, with too many Australian films looking and sounding like they needed more script development...This valiant attempt at a mainstream, feel-good comedy is the latest example. It's a lovely idea that falls flat.
The film profits from both the cosmic cruelty of someone physically the same being perceived so differently and the lead's note-perfect facial expressions of disbelief.
Smart, funny and perceptive... brimming with well-observed scenarios, characters and emotions.
That's Not Me itself is too modest to make any attempt at taking the world by storm...
While Australian comedies have, in recent times, proven a sad and sorry lot, That's Not Me is a now-rare exception, with a strain of genuine humour running throughout, even if it's often of a neurotic, even traumatic sort.
Its co-writer and lead actor, Alice Foulcher, is very, very funny, performing her own often wickedly witty lines with aplomb. It's a delightful feature debut.
Though the movie has some problems finding a satisfactory ending, its refreshingly relaxed feel and a wonderful performance by Foulcher in a deceptively demanding role ensures it never outstays its welcome.
