Movie Reviews

Incredibly moving and challenging
K. Rule | 12/09/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I find the other reviews about this movie sad and frustrating. Especially the reviewer who did not even finish the movie. The story is about two teenage girls told in reverse-highlighting the points where there lives take positive and negative directions. It is one of the most realistic teenage movies I have ever seen. The movie can be confusing because time is jumping backwards, but that is exactly what makes the experience so emotional.
You actually see where a life went wrong.

Go watch most major american movies if you want predictable unrealisticly dramatic, LINEAR. Otherwise, give this movie a try.
Appeals to Australian audiences

"Two Friends is a must for anyone who grew up in Australia in the 1980's. I think a lot of other people may find the film tedious and hard to follow. A great movie to show in schools too. :)"
