A riotous rollercoaster of murder and mayhem set in multicultural inner Melbourne. Sam Neill is Carl, a fortyish no-hoper who takes a job as a cook in a seedy nightclub to escape his cantankerous mother. A flirtation with fetching barmaid Sophie (Zoe Carides) – who is engaged to the nightclub owner – lands Carl on the wrong side of a vicious bouncer, but when attacked by his drug-dealing Turkish kitchenhand, Carl inflicts a grievous form of self-defence that sparks a deepening gangland feud. Best mate Dave (John Clarke) is soon employed as Carl’s protector – and gravedigger – as a band of cutthroats block Carl’s path to his bartending sweetheart.
Five 1991 AFI nominations including Best Film and Best Director.
