Aroview: Simply one of the best Australian films ever, this elegant mystery, based on the novel by Joan Lindsay, centres around the disappearance of several schoolgirls in the turn of the century outback. Psychologically suggestive, with supernatural overtones, all contained in a rich, poetic visual style.

5 stars (Exceptional) Extraordinarily beautiful and haunting, somehow using lace-light to swathe everything. Delicate and charming Victorian beauty and manners pervade everything, including pain and the rocks and grasses of the fateful picnic.~rakau
