Australian cinema at its best. A great story. Great acting. Ammoral in its intentbut a much nicer feel than modern amorality such as Weeds.
Unusual, well done. Good to see a local setting.
It's very cute, and it's kind of the granddaddy of the Australian "quirky" genre.
I thought it would be great for my train obsessed son, but there's some language, misogyny and sex themes that stop it from being really suitable for kids. I'd forgotten about them. And adults might find it a tad childish. Pity really.
Great Australian film like the way they used to make them. Great walk down memory lane for Melbournians in the 70's
An early Tass-Parker collaboration- 1986. Hard to
believe Aussie movies were once this good. Cheap
as chips, but quirky
A uniquely Australian comedy classic. A must-see if you like the genre.
I liked both Colin Friels and John Hargraves in this film, they were both really funny. The best bits for me were mechanical ashtrays manoeuvering around the bank, avoiding being detected by the security guard. A very enjoyable Aussie film,. An oldie, but a goodie!!
A good Colin Friels movie.
this is one of my favourite australian movies of all time.
an absolute gem and more people need to see it.
it's very funny and the characters are wonderful.
Surprise hit with critics and audiences alike, "Malcolm" was a deserving winner of the AFI Best Film award. Friels is in arguably his best role as the teddy bear-like Malcolm, and director Tass's handling of the character scenes is near-brilliant. But it's the incredible mechanical contraptions that Malcolm has built to help himself through daily chores that steals the show. It's difficult to find much wrong with this film, for pure entertainment. Incredibly, the film won all eight awards for which it was nominated in a disappointing year for Australian film.
Good old Aussie drama that the whole family enjoyed.
A great, enjoyable, 80's Australian Movie. How can you not like this. Colin Friels is great. The movie is sad, funny, scary (because I can't believe we all dressed like that in the 80's!) But many people will like this movie. An Aussie "Feel Good" movie.
Loved it (Melbourne based).
Love this movie, but hadn't seen it for years, and so forgot all the swearing & nudity- thought it could do without that
Very inventive,funny and touching.
Malcolm is a Movie for people who like Trams and Melbourne. Even after 20 years ( I think? ) It's still a great movie with all the gadgets that Malcolm is able to build. Well recommended...
