Critic Reviews for The Year My Voice Broke
The characters are memorable ones, and beautifully played by the three young newcomers, with Noah Taylor especially effective as the lovesick Danny.
A film to restore one's faith in films about the transition from adolescence to adulthood.
It is so pleasant and unpretentious that we can almost forget the total lack of surprise in this deftly acted Australian film.
This isn't an adolescent wish-fulfillment fantasy, so the impossible never happens, and it's a credit to the movie that it doesn't.
Although most of this is rather familiar stuff...the treatment is sufficiently sincere and nuanced to give it a touch of poignancy.
Audience Reviews for The Year My Voice Broke
A worthwhile trip to early Sixties, small town, Australia where burgeoning youth learns that even the most innocent of lives here on Planet Earth is fraught with difficulty. While American media seduced via music and movies about the possibility of a better life possibly somewhere else, the local populace of this rural outpost have to live with the apparent drabness of their own situation. The natural performances of the leads and the writer/director's sure knowledge of his source material quietly deliver this laid back home cooked meal designed to satisfy. A great suggestion by a dear friend.
(*** 1/2): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] A very good coming-of-age film. Touching and well-acted.
I love coming-of-age and both Noah Taylor and Loene Carmen's longing for people they can never truly have is something we can all identify with and feel their pain.
