Movie Reviews

Lawyeraau | Balmoral Castle | 08/29/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

This is a gem of a film, starring the underrated Piper Laurie in the role of Mary Horton, a well-to-do, but lonely, business woman, who befriends Tim Melville, a very nice, good looking day laborer, earnestly played by a very young Mel Gibson. Tim happens to be a little simple. His family describes him as being "a few short of a full quid".

While he does work around her house, Mary gets to know Tim, as well as his working class family. As time goes on, a deep fondness that ripens into love develops between the two. He brings her out of her shell, and she teaches him to read and explains concepts that will enable him to function better in the world around him. Based upon Colleen McCollough's book of the same name, this is a very well acted-film, with fine performances by the supporting cast, as well as the leads.

The quality of the DVD, however, is bargain basement with no additional features. Moreover, the DVD picture is best described as grainy. This is unfortunate for such an excellent film. A better transfer from print to DVD should have been executed, as this film certainly merits it, as does the viewer."
An unknown gem

"I have owned Tim for many years in VHS. I found it by accident and have never regretted following my impulse to buy it out of a bargin bin. It is not the best sound quality but the story is a heart catcher. In short, because I don't want to blow the movie, Tim is a "slow" young man whose parents are getting older and worry about his future. While working at a gardening job, Tim meets a woman who takes an interest in him. From there I leave it to the movie. It was filmed in Australia and I think anyone who likes Mel Gibson should see this movie. It really shows you a side of the actor that just isn't seen anymore. The part is played wonderfully and I promise those who cry at movies you will cry at least once with this one. The reason I gave it a four rating is because of the sound quality. I don't know if it has been improved in the DVD version, but I will soon find out. Give this movie a chance and I promise you won't regret it."
Moving and Beautiful

I will start by saying that this is very much a woman's movie.
First you have a young gorgeous Mel Gibson running around shirtless and in hot pants throughout the film.
And it's a love story that involves a simple minded man "Gibson" some think retarded that falls in love with a much older woman named Mary beautifully played by Piper Laurie.
Tim "Gibson's character" starts to do odd jobs for Mary and he starts to have feelings that are foreign and confusing to him.
Meanwhile Mary is feeling the same way about him but because of the age difference and his simple mindedness she think it taboo to love him.
What follows is a beautiful and almost fantasy like love story that will melt your heart and make you wish you yourself could find a "Tim".
