The chant of the underdog
Based on a novel by Thomas Keneally, which was in turn inspired by actual events, this Australian classic is the shocking tale of an oppressed indigenous man driven to madness and revenge. Jimmie (Tommy Lewis) is a half-caste young Aboriginal man raised by a Methodist minister in central-western NSW. Finding low-paid work with white farmers, Jimmy marries a white servant girl who is believed to be carrying his child. Discovering that the child is not his, Jimmy is forbidden from seeing his wife and fired without pay and finally explodes in a fury of violent revenge. His flight across NSW, and his ultimate capture months later, is exquisitely portrayed in this Australian cinema masterpiece.
