The first-ever movie in an Australian Aboriginal language is lushly filmed and cleverly framed by an English-language narration (voiced by David Gulpilil, Australia's best-known Aboriginal actor). True to oral tradition, Ten Canoes weaves stories within stories to create a hugely enjoyable comedy-drama.
