Genre: Drama. Dir: Richard Lowenstein. Country: Australia.
Set against the backdrop of Melbourne’s late ’70s punk rock scene and chronicling life in a chaotic, squalid share-house. Hippies, addicts, students and radicals fill their days and nights with sex, drugs, parties and television. Writer/director Richard Lowenstein balances a series of chaotic vignettes with the central story of the romance between housemates Sam (Michael Hutchence) and his lover Anna (Saskia Post) as it spirals out of control. Hutchence is a brilliant symbol of reckless youth in this, his first dramatic screen role, giving the film instant cult status upon its release.
