Liquid Bridge - A delight
28 February 2005 | by leanne-17See all my reviews

Absolutely shocked to read the review by one commenter, whose 'extra-ordinary' vocabulary seems limited to the word "Bad". Obviously, by his comments, he has some vendetta against the makers of this exceptional Australian film - which only makes one wonder, why? Reading the other comments far outweigh this obnoxious report. I challenge all readers who have not seen the film to do so, and then comment. The story in Liquid Bridge is truly inspirational, the beautifully depicted scenes capture the essence of surfing, wonderful on the big and small screen. Some outstanding directorial moments shine throughout and the characterization (and acting) is moving and very sympathetic. In fact it is one of the few Australian films to succeed on these levels, whilst executing a universal story. And what extra-ordinary ocean footage! This film is fast becoming a house-hold name amongst surfers and others, because the characters portrayed appeal to a wide audience. Everyone I know who has seen it, loved it! As for the comments on the Director, do a little research, this man deserves acclaim and respect. Not only did he put the likes of Mel Gibson and Julian McMahon in their first roles that ultimately led to their stardom, follow Simone Kessell (now in LA) and Ryan Kwanten - both from Liquid Bridge. Ryan is now a huge success via "Summerland" - their quality performances in Liquid Bridge led to these successes. Director/writer/Producer Phil Avalon has a knack for recognizing star talent, particularly 'up and coming' - and provides vehicles for careers to be launched. I would like to hear from anyone not moved by Liquid Bridge, it's almost 'tribal' resonance in parts has stayed with me since my first viewing. A great film on the big screen, and a perfectly fulfilling DVD! Thanks
