Jenny Agutter, Luc Roeg, David Gulpilil.
Two children find themselves lost in the Australian outback. They come across an Aborigine who has been ritualistically banished by his tribe - he is on a Walkabout. The children need saving and he saves them. This simple foundation, however, is only the carrier for a deeper and more profound message. It can be seen as a heart-warming tale of how people survive in the harshest of circumstances. On the other hand, it is a deeply haunting story of how people fail to communicate and in so doing lose so much: at the end, all the characters are even more lost than when they started.
Cannes 1971: Nominated for the Palme d'Or
An innocent family picnic turns existential in Nicolas Roeg's brilliant Walkabout.
