Waterfall

Australia, 1986 (MIFF 1986)

Director: Fiona Eagger

A bored middle-aged housewife and mother rebels against the banality of her life by going for a swim at the local baths. Life briefly assumes the glamour of an Esther Williams movie. This film has a nicely judged ironic lone and very good dialogue especially in the exchanges between members of the household.
