I found the previous comment rather harsh. Australia produced many wonderful films in the 70s and 80s..many of them to do with adolescence..'The Getting of Wisdom', 'The Year My Voice Broke'etc and 'Emmas War' to me is a little gem! A sensitive tale of innocence in a time of war,beautifully acted by Lee Remick and Miranda Otto and Mel Gibsons brother Donal. The music by John Williams was very moving and I keep humming it to myself. I thought the art direction was particularly good and captured the feel of the period very well in a naturalistic way.A slow moving film,yes..but that added to its charm.A welcome change from bullets and screeching cars!
