"Seldom has any tale so patronized its subject; D.H. Lawrence and Fellini barely compete. This work is likely to be studies in discussion groups in 30 years' time - not, unhappily, for its place in Australian filmmaking but as a locus classicus of the quaint, benighted assumptions about female psychology (indeed, about psychology) held by the most articulate young MCPs in their day." - Sylvia Lawson, 'The Australian', May 25, 1972.

2. Balmain 26min
An enquiry, at once lyrical and tragic, into the reality of (the inner Sydney suburb of) Balmain in 1969 - an historical, beautiful and ideally located residential suburb threatened with partial extinction by lack of government planning and foresight, and by indifferent to residents' interests. Peter King, 'The Australian'
