Honest and intelligent Australian film
11 October 1999 | by frbrSee all my reviews

Secret Men's Business is very much like the US movie "The Big Chill". A group of school friends are re-united after a death. They begin to deal with certain truths which have been ignored for some time. The characters are very Australian. Not the outback Australia kind (no big knives). Or even the suburban Australia kind (no car revving). Just real people. It's honest and intelligent. One of Australia's better productions.
