Critic Reviews for Unfinished Sky
McInnes and Hendrickx spark off each other beautifully as lost souls who slowly form a bond.
A solid adult drama which holds quite a bit of depth for a 90 min production.
Anchored by two outstanding performances, Unfinished Sky is an engaging and intriguing drama.
Peter Duncan's remake of Dutch hit The Polish Bride is a small film with a big story to tell.
Audience Reviews for Unfinished Sky
I enjoyed this. The characters are compelling and the actors relate well to each other. The blackouts to show the passage of time annoyed me as did the quick resolution after the resolution (two endings really.) When McInnes shaves 3/4 way through the movie, I'm not sure I paid attention to the story much after. Both actors carry the movie on sheer beauty alone.
Between a 6/10 and 7/10, there are a couple of credibility gaps with the film's thriller resolution which prove mildly distracting but it's the delicate love story that lingers.
This Australian drama is written and directed by Peter Duncan but it is actually kind of a remake of the 1998 Dutch film "De Poolse bruid". I am recommending it if you are not familiar with the Australian cinematography because somehow manages to gather everything important from it... The story about an outback farmer (William McInnes) who takes in an Afghani woman (Monic Hendrickx) after she escapes from a brothel is very touching one. The film takes on many themes - from human trafficking and the sex trade, hard life in the outback, to the corruption in police. Nominated for 10 Australian Film Institute Awards at its 2008 ceremony, it won three, including Best Screenplay, Best Actress (Monic Hendrickx) and Best Actor (William McInnes). Very smooth performance from one of my favourite actors made this film exceptional. I hope you'll have a chance to enjoy watching it, too!
