***1/2. A pretty rare Michael Powell of the last period of the British director. It's a plea for an harmonious integration of immigrants in Australia and also an hilarious comedy. I don't know Australia but it's good advertising. After all, 1966 is not so far away. Yes? OK, I'm old. Recommended.
This came highly recommended by my Australian friend who is also first generation Italian. Hilarious to see the culture clash, but how harmoniously the Italian character in the film is eventually able to assimilate into Australian culture and make a life for himself there. A definite must see if you are or know any Australians/Italians.
