Since 1906, a dozen or so westerns have told the story of the Kelly Gang and its leader, an Australian Robin Hood and British-Empire freedom fighter, who was known to launch his attacks disguised as a woman and even in knight’s armour. Although a 1970 film saw Mick Jagger play the outback legend, no other film can beat the epic quality of this adaptation of the Peter Carey novel. Our Australian gem for 2020.

Special FIFF screening on 11th December at ARENA Cinéma in Fribourg at 20:30: tickets
