With the likes of The Proposition and Little Fish, Australian cinema is making a real impact and Sarah Watt's Look Both Ways proves no exception. Opening with one man being hit by train whilst another is diagnosed with testicular cancer, you'd be surprised to find that what follows is actually a love story. Nick, who is trying to live a normal life after being told he has cancer, ends up meeting Meryl, the only witness to the tragic train accident. Instantly drawn to one another the two share their experiences of life and death whilst their family and friends suffer their own personal crises. Look Both Ways is a commanding debut feature that successfully blends animation and live action whilst bringing a wry humor to a difficult subject matter.
