Storyline

The film is set in a house occupied by a collection of social misfits. The main storyline is that of a strange musician's relationship with a girl, their drug use and his band. These events are surrounded by a chaotic myriad of sub-plots. A homicidal chainsaw maniac's lust for his machine and a T.V station's offer of money in return for a piece of the Skylab satellite that has fallen to earth are just two. The film is composed of small fragments in the lives of its inhabitants, each following onto the next, sometimes overlapping and ending in tragedy. Written by Richard Moore <rick@zephyr.win-uk.net>

Trivia

After her fight with Sam, Anna goes to her mother's house and watches My Man Godfrey (1936) on television with her. See more »

Goofs

In Luchio's bedroom there is a sticker for the FM radio station Triple M. At time the film was set, MMM did not exist (it began as EON-FM at that time) and there were in fact no commercial FM radio stations broadcasting in Melbourne. The radio station the cast do listen to, 3XY, was an AM station that changed to FM and became Triple M; this may have been a bit of product placement. See more »

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat film!!
9 January 2007 | by christiangoreySee all my reviews

Do not be fooled by all of the naysayers out there.....this is one hell of a movie....especially if you are a fan of Michael Hutchence(inxs).

I own this movie on VHS and have been waiting a long time for a much deserved DVD release..the acting is superb and you really feel as though you are spending time with old friends every time you watch this masterpiece. Definitely one of the best Australian movies ever made.

This movie has it all, sex, drugs, rock n' roll, and laughs upon laughs upon laughs. I cannot emphasize enough that everyone who loves comedy/drama involving young hip 20 something outcasts should run out and rent/buy this film.Trust me. 10/10 *****
