Other places surprise with their comeback-kid status. The important and replanted avenue of poplars along Peel Street leading to Queen Victoria Market is thriving. After less than 10 years the trees look much more mature than they are, and they hold their own in comparison to the 90-year-old giants they replaced. Yes, European trees in a continent of drought. We just can’t do without them. Unfortunately, it is also clear that many trees simply haven’t survived the tough times, and of course all tree lifespans must come to an end. There has been considerable removal of dead and suffering trees around the Shrine and the Royal Botanic Gardens: stand by for more of the usual heated arguments about which species should replace what in these post-colonial times. I have the same challenge in my garden, yet it turns out that even the flowering eucalypt is as much threatened by lack of water as is the Japanese maple. I just have to be even smarter with what falls from the sky – and once that stops being those wretched spiky plane tree seeds, I think this is going to be a most glorious spring. \

Meet the Downsizers For Brian Stacey and Rodney Smith there are no surprises in the current market trend to downsized homes. Long-time Fasham designer Brian (pictured—striped shirt) and industry veteran Rodney have not just seen this coming, they have for two decades been front and centre in the push for smaller, smarter homes as a wise, environmentally sustainable alternative to the MacMansions of the 90’s and early 2000’s. Fasham design and build individual homes for individual clients. We’ve been doing this for four decades for people at all stages of life, but our core client base has always been the baby boomer generation. And now the baby-boomers are downsizing in droves. If you are about to downsize too, you could do a lot worse than talk to Brian or Rodney. Here’s how it works. First, we suggest, you visit our website (address below) to learn something of our design beliefs. Secondly, visit our current display home (address also below). Whilst this display is a ‘grown-up family’ home we can talk to you about our next display (opening early 2013), which is very definitely a downsizers’ property. If you’re comfortable with what you’ve seen and learned then give us a call, asking for either Brian or Rodney. (At Fasham you talk direct to a designer.) Rodney or Brian will get a sense of what you’re looking for and canvass the possibilities of your land. They’ll discuss your budget too. Rodney and Brian function as a design studio embedded within a building company, which means they’re not guessing at figures—they have a very strong knowledge of construction methodology and costs. They’ll be able to tell you whether your needs can likely be met within your nominated budget or whether some reconsideration—of your brief or your budget—might be required. Depending on your site and your requirements it may be that $380,000 is sufficient, or that $650,000 is not enough. Perhaps you are in the fortunate position of living on land that could be subdivided, giving you the prospect of a new home to sell, and a new home for you. We’re presently designing and building for a number of clients in this position. Why wait another day? If you’re ready to make a move to a smaller, smarter home, why not talk directly to Brian or Rodney, designers for whom downsizing is second nature.

cover story

this acting. At rehearsals in Sydney for the ABC’s new Dangerous thing, series of Rake, an actor has walked out into the darkness, miscalculated the edge of the stage, fallen off and broken his shoulder. Rehearsals stop while an ambulance is called.

Richard Roxburgh, the show’s star and co-creator, is sympathetic to his colleague and remembers his involvement in a slightly similar incident. “It was the last-ever rehearsal of an MTC production for The Three Musketeers,” Roxburgh says. “It kind of pre-dated OH&S (occupational health and safety). We had some guy come around and mumbled something about how they’d removed the railing up the top so don’t try and lean on it. I backed all the way up the stairs and fell three metres off on to my back.” Happily, he survived, and here he is sitting in an empty auditorium at Sydney’s National Institute of Dramatic Arts during a break. It’s a homecoming of sorts. Roxburgh studied economics at the Australian National University before deciding to study acting at NIDA. So amid the photos on the wall of the young hopefuls, Roxburgh returns as an established name, at the top of his craft. He looks in pretty good shape, too; good enough for the rigours of saddling up again to play the louche, dissolute barrister Cleaver Greene. “How we wish we could write that, since we last met our hero, he has found the road to Damascus instead of the road to perdition,” the series liner notes colourfully muse, “that he has learnt to love wisely instead of too often, and that going another 25 grand into debt to back a ‘sure thing’ at Moonee Valley paid off. The nag didn’t even finish the race.” Sadly, the notes lament, Cleaver Greene “has learnt nothing in this time and hasn’t changed one whit. If anything, he’s a little worse.” Which is how we like him. Roxburgh explains how Cleaver Greene came about. “(Co-creator) Peter Duncan and I had been talking about doing something. Or mainly I’d been talking at him … We wanted to create a character that would play to both of our strong suits. I’d pester him. We’d been mates ever since film school.” Roxburgh suggested to Duncan that he would write it with him. “He said, ‘As if I’d want to write something with you’.” But of course he did, and Roxburgh’s perseverence paid off. “There were various strands of characters I’ve always been attracted to, and one was this really brilliant, very mercurial, very self-destructive figure,” Roxburgh says. “There was a guy who I was at university with who was the model really for that. And I’d talk a lot to Peter about that. He was somebody who was always being beaten up by bouncers and landing on his feet and

quoting Shakespeare at them and launching into I’m Getting Married in the Morning. “If I think about it now he was almost certainly bipolar. But he was incredibly gifted, brilliant, beautiful and the funniest man you could poke a stick at. “He’d turn up at a fashion event and get absolutely wildly drunk. He’d find a piano in the room and start playing it. So I was trying to tease Pete with that and didn’t quite get there until we finally started talking about the idea of him being a lawyer, and in particular a barrister, so he was a wordsmith as well.” Did Roxburgh desperately want to be this man but was terrified? “Oh yeah, I think that’s really quite right. I would look at him and think, ‘If I could be him’.” Did he wow the women? “He did, but he’d be so drunk by the end of the night that he ended up sleeping between two sewerage pipes across a bridge. His fall was slow and ungainly and ugly.” Is he alive? “I actually don’t know. Last I heard he was living in Melbourne.” Roxburgh was born in Albury, New South Wales, and grew up in a large – six children – and fun household. His father was an accountant and his mother stayed home to raise the family. “It was great. You accepted it as perfectly normal that you had all of these siblings around you. It was a doting family; good bunch of siblings to have. I was lucky.” There was “not a skerrick” of acting blood in the family. “I always had an inkling that I liked it,” he says. “I remember doing a primary-school production of Mary Poppins and I auditioned for it and they said, ‘You can take your pick of roles’. I thought, ‘Wow, bonanza!’ “At high school we did a production of Death of a Salesman where I played Willy (Loman). I had a real moment with myself where I thought, ‘Wow, I can feel things shifting’. I liked it.” In 1995 Roxburgh shot to national fame with a superb

picture \ JOhn DOnegan

performance playing corrupt NSW detective Roger Rogerson in the television mini-series Blue Murder. The role made him, and the offers started pouring in. “It probably meant there were more things sent my way, which is what you want,” he says. “The thing that you have to ward off is the natural tendency for all of those things to be dark and dangerous, so you have to kind of fight against that shift towards putting you in a particular category.” He made his directorial debut with a filmed version of Raimond Gaita’s moving childhood memoir Romulus, My Father, released in 2007 and starring Eric Bana. It was a fine piece but, when asked about it, Roxburgh reveals some insecurities and even fears of bringing such a powerful story – or any true story – to the screen. “It was so full of things that I both loved and hated in such extreme equal measure that I was left with my head spinning at the end of it,” he says. “I still can’t quite process what that experience was, in a way. I want to do it again so I can have a clearer sense of reason about what it was.” What were the good bits? “The good bits were being there in that beautiful landscape, that beautiful part of the world. Working with a story that I loved and which moved me so much. Working with the actors, I loved that. Just trying to carve out what that story was. That was the thing I was really so determined to do. “The bad bits were the timing and money conundrum that faces every director that no amount of talk can prepare you for in your first directorial effort. And the kind of horrible sense that I had every day, at every moment, that I was committing (that story) to film … it was like you were carving something out of stone and every stroke you took with a chisel meant that the stone could never be changed back; you could never get it back.” The tyranny of permanency? “That’s right. That’s a very good way of putting it. I found that almost unbearable at times because I had the thing in my head so strongly and I wanted it to be that. But of course it’s not. Film has to change and evolve with what you get on each day and you have

“I would hesitate to spend too much time talking about the efficacy of the film itself ... but I got a very wonderful wife out of it.”

to be an accomplished enough filmmaker to change and evolve with it. And I still don’t know if I was. “And to make sure it wasn’t just a work of reverence, because that is the death of art in a way. In art you have to release something. You can’t sort of hammer its shoes to the ground. We had to navigate a way of getting it up on the screen replete with the things that we loved about it but to not turn it into a kind of museum or altar piece.” Bob Hawke was RoxbuRgh’s memorable in the 2010 mini-series Hawke. He says he didn’t meet Hawke

to prepare for the role. “I often kind of recoil from it (meeting the person an actor is portraying). I didn’t have a violently negative reaction to the idea of meeting Bob. The Bob that we were describing is a different Bob to the way that he is now. The world changes and people move and change utterly.” He mentions watching former Greens leader Bob Brown on the ABC’s Q&A just after Brown had retired. “The man seems like a totally different man, so relaxed. His face was different. He couldn’t stop smiling. I thought, ‘Wow, as soon as you quit that horrific game, everything changes’. “(With Hawke) that real larrikin complexity that he had as a man, and the darkness, has probably been smoothed over and polished over and I didn’t want to be charmed or moved by that so that I wouldn’t then be able to see what it was we were really doing.” But what an opportunity, to inhabit such a colourful character. “Frightening as well,” Roxburgh says, “because of the threat of the pastiche or the cartoon. He was not only famous for being such a visible and such an identifiable presence but also because of the cartoonery that had been done of him and the versions that existed of him, which in themselves were quite famous. Everybody’s got a Bob Hawke voice. That famous crow voice.” Roxburgh got Hawke down, but didn’t overplay the famous tics, characteristics that were so strongly identified with Hawke. “I’d get extras coming up and doing that (crow voice). I’d be getting a coffee and I’d be getting a guy coming up going, ‘Aaaaerrrghh” and pulling their cuff.” Roxburgh met his wife, Italian actress Silvia Colloca, on the Prague set of the 2004 American action horror film Van Helsing, which starred Hugh Jackman as a vigilante monster hunter and Roxburgh as Count Vladislaus “Dracula” Dragulia. The film wasn’t one he’s proud of, but it had its uses. “I would hesitate to spend too much time talking about the efficacy of the film itself,” he says, “but I got a very wonderful wife out of it.” Roxburgh and Colloca have two sons, aged five and nearly two. I ask if he is enjoying fatherhood. “It’s the best thing in the whole wide world. There’s nothing that can hold a candle to it. It answers so many things that had always been questions. It’s sort of unalloyed pleasure.” Roxburgh, 50, was 45 when his first son was born. He talks about the joys of late fatherhood, including the pleasure of introducing his sons to the American wild-man musician Iggy Pop. “The good aspects are I could never be more ready. I have a degree of wisdom I can bring to the table. And I just delight in it. When you’re changing nappies at my age you do, though, start to think, ‘For Chrissakes … if we go again am I going to be doing this when I’m 60?” The Iggy Pop album Roxburgh played his son was Lust for Life. Luckily, Roxburgh’s got that. \ pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au we welcome your feedback @

T

he two middle-aged fellows are engaged in an earnest discussion – and one is determined to drive his point home, somewhat loudly. But it’s not just in volume that the men outdo the women at this upmarket café. There are a half-dozen solo male patrons – on phones, laptops or reading newspapers – scattered at indoor tables, along the padded bench seat or tucked into corners in the courtyard. A group of six blokes arrives and readjusts furniture to accommodate their number. It’s lunchtime in the middle of the week. The staff in the kitchen, at the espresso machine and tending the tables, are all men too. A few women wander in for takeaway coffee, a pair of schoolgirls sits in the courtyard, but it seems chaps are the dominant creatures of habit. This 10-month-old café is masculine in design, too, from its rusted-iron welded-metal gates that open to a paved and timber-lined courtyard to its interior, which features hard surfaces and minimal embellishment. There are glossy black-painted plywood tables, set with dark-timber bistro chairs and a large rustic timber-panelled wall. Cylinder-shaped lightshades are wrapped with recycled coffee sacks. Overall the look has a modern, edgy appeal that’s unfussy, but instantly welcoming. First-time café owner Sandro Costabile comes from a chemical engineering background and most recently ran his own environmental management consultancy. But he has long harboured a desire to run his own café. “I have a lot of friends who have been in the industry and many of them have given me guidance. There are times when I’ve thought I must be bonkers,” he says.

“It’s incredibly hard work but it’s also very rewarding.” He worked with a design team to create the fit-out and says his wife, Paula, who takes care of the café’s bookwork, respectfully “stayed right out of it”. Creatures of Habit uses Veneziano coffee, which until recently has been made mostly by Costabile, but he’s training a team of baristas to give him more time on the café floor. “If I am behind the espresso machine I can’t interact with the customers and see what’s going on in the same way,” he says. There’s an elegant Italian-made GB5 La Marzocco espresso machine on the counter that he proudly sourced from Italy. Coffee is made with care, and a rather large piccolo latte will arrive in a glossy black tulip-shaped cup, with good body, well-textured milk and bearing a nicely etched rosetta. The menu features panini, burgers, a steak sandwich, chicken parmigiana, pastas, risottos, lamb shanks and an appealing-sounding dukkah-spiced chicken with a chickpea ragu. Three pieces of chicken fillet, coated in an aromatic walnut-brown crumb, arrive atop a generous dish of the pulses that have been cooked in russet-toned tomato, carrot and onion sauce. The chicken pieces are topped with a scattering of rocket leaves and a creamy tzatziki. It’s a warming wintry dish, but could easily be altered for summer. It’s good enough to become habit-forming – whether you are male or female. \

\ JANE ROCCA SPEAKS TO SARAH DE BONO ABOUT HER STYLE

S

arah De Bono was a finalist in The Voice this season. The fire-engine redhead who made friends with her team coach, Joel Madden, and his wife, Nicole Richie, started singing at a young age and belts out rhythm and blues and soul music like someone three times her age. What’s more, the charismatic young starlet will be touring with American pop sensation Kelly Clarkson this month to push her own career along. Now, with The Voice over and done with (until next year), De Bono says moving from her home town of Melbourne to Sydney is next. “It’s where it’s at,” she says down the phone line. Considering she spends most of her time in Sydney, it’s inevitable she will move there – to maintain her connections in the music and fashion business, that is. With Madden “only an email away”, she says the US punk rocker, who is now back in Los Angeles, often checks in via text and sees how she’s faring after the hoopla of the reality-TV show. It’s so hip to become an ambassador these days, and brands love associating with some of TV’s favourite stars. Since finishing on The Voice, De Bono has put her name to various brands, including Betts Shoes and Kiehl’s (a flagship New York label that’s been around for decades and has the Scissor Sisters and actress Julianne Moore as global ambassadors). Her bold and bright personal style – which is what helped her get noticed in the first place (OK, and her voice as well) – is what her message is all about. “Beauty is all about inner confidence,” says the 19-year-old. “When you get dressed in the morning the way you feel and your personality should be in your style. I have always been one to dress in bright colour and I love nothing more than clashing colour. I also like bold prints and patterns. Fashion is about taking risks.”

Last month De Bono was styled and photographed for the latest spring/summer 2012-13 Betts campaign. She is wearing metallic shoes and bright colours in a bid to encourage other young women to do the same – her neatly coiffed red hair might be her trademark, but she’s got the world staring at her feet now. “It’s a brand I love to wear and always wore before I became an ambassador,” says De Bono. “When it comes to footwear you can wear a bright statement shoe, but you need to know how to pair the look with your outfit. I would say try bold pants but a plainer top or vice versa,” she says. “You can break up your look with a great pair of bright shoes. It’s a great way to embrace fashion.” De Bono says she didn’t really care for designer labels growing up. “I didn’t grow up in a wealthy family so fashion for me was about finding things I could afford and making my own style – it could be vintage or something simple tricked up.” These days, she’s cosy with Australian designers such as Romance Was Born, Ginger & Smart, Sass & Bide and Bec & Bridge. “I am really drawn to those designers who take the extra bold step to embrace colour, offer something edgy and really let me make the most of colour blocking,” she says. \ jrocca@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.betts.com.au

TiTle This \dirty fairytale has inspired a lot of excited industry gossip Details andmonths. lcase Certainly, Benh Zeitlin’s low-budget in theUpper past few » www.website.com debut is a remarkable film. It’s also enigmatic enough to alienate

as many audiences as it wows. I didn’t have quite the Descript \ transcendental experience shared by other reviewers, but Zeitlin leaves so much room for interpretation that any response has to be acutely personal. Hushpuppy and her father live in the Bathtub, a forgotten swampland shantytown in America’s deep south. From his boat, carved from the back end of a ute, they peer up over the concrete levees at the outside world. “Isn’t it ugly?” dad asks, before assuring his daughter they live in “the most beautiful place”. To the rest of us, the Bathtub looks post-apocalyptic – a (barely) floating colony forged from, and inhabited by, flotsam and jetsam. Zeitlin’s greatest achievement is to make this fantastical world seem utterly real. Key to this is his use of non-professional actors. It’s easy to mistake these unshowy performers for the self-conscious stars of a documentary. Young Quvenzhane Wallis is astonishing as the stroppy Hushpuppy, who believes she has brought about armageddon through a single selfish act. The film is centred on this childish belief in interconnectedness. One wrong deed can unravel the universe and collapse ice caps. Here, everything is always precarious. There are echoes of the devastation wrought by hurricane Katrina, but the film also hooks into underlying fears about climate change. We’re reminded that it won’t take much to edge us all back into the wild. It’s a film that succeeds more in world creation than storytelling. Perhaps Zeitlin hopes we will be too hypnotised by his world to notice that we’re simply drifting from one scene to the next. Maybe he’s right. Certainly, it’s a truly original, striking film that, like the stench of the swamp, lingers long after we’ve left it. \

music COMe OF AGe \ The Vaccines (Sony) » www.thevaccines.co.uk Bono has a lot to answer for. Reinventing U2 for Achtung Baby, he adopted the persona of the Fly – a manufactured rock star, assembled from the trappings of other music icons. This kind of self-conscious thievery has since become de rigueur for rock bands. Any pretence of originality is abandoned in favour of baldly borrowing from the past. There’s nothing wrong with that when it’s done well. But British band the Vaccines seem so preoccupied with attempting to be a rock band that it’s hard to wholly take them seriously. Indeed, single Teenage Icon features singer Justin Young worrying that he’s not quite rock enough. Which is a shame, as this is definitely a rock album. The group are, like the Arctic Monkeys before them, seeking to abandon their indie roots in favour of a heavier, vaguely American sound. For the most part, they do it well. There’s recurring hints of the Pixies, Bob Dylan and a splash of surf-pop. It’s certainly a more eclectic approach to music-making than their debut, but this might be the problem. We’re left with the sense of a band trying so hard to be a band that they’ve forgotten who they are. \

With arts coverage evaporating from terrestrial networks, it’s reassuring to find cultural chat alive and well on C31. Despite being community television, this is an extremely polished production. It looks and sounds great, even if some of the presenters have a style perhaps more suited to children’s telly. This is a trifling matter, however. The in-depth interviews with local wordsmiths – be they novelists, animators, musicians or picture-book writers – are thoughtful and revealing. \

BOOKS \ A NEW PICTORIAL ESSAY BRILLIANTLY CAPTURES 50 YEARS OF THE ROLLING STONES, WRITES CORRIE PERKIN

T

he Rolling Stones’ first gig was on July 12, 1962, at the Marquee Club in Oxford Street, London. “At the time I said, ‘I hope they don’t think we’re a rock’n’roll outfit,” Mick Jagger recalls in a new book, Rolling Stones 50. “We weren’t back then. We were mostly playing the blues.” I was one year old when the Stones played their first gig. Like everyone around my age, I have grown up as the band has grown older. Our parents were shocked by the lyrics of Mother’s Little Helper (1966). We shared our first teenage kisses to Angie (1973). The music at every 21st in the 1980s kicked off with Start Me Up (1981). And now, as grown-ups going to the weddings of our friends’ children, we are straight onto the dance floor and singing word perfect when the DJ plays “an oldie but a goody”, (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction (1965). The Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary has prompted a frenzy of activity in the book-publishing world, and in recent months we have seen several titles move through our shop. Our favourite is Rolling Stones 50, a must-buy for anyone who loves the Stones specifically, and rock music history generally. This outstanding Thames and Hudson

and more recently we’ve filled the largest stadiums in the world with the kind of show that none of us could have imagined all those years ago.” The photos track the Stones’ history, from that first gig in Oxford Street to the super-sized concerts of recent years. There are plenty of performance shots – many of them brilliant in their execution and taken by some of the world’s finest photographers. But what really gives this book its soul are the images of band members in the quiet times. An impromptu visit to the Beau Gentry men’s wear store in Hollywood during their 1964 US visit; backstage at the London Palladium in January 1967; Keith playing with his little son Marlon in the gardens of the Nellcôte manor house in France in 1971. They reveal great insights into the friendships that have sustained the Stones for half a century. “While I have never been a person who looks backwards, preferring to explore new ideas and concepts in everything from music to staging,” writes Mick, “I cannot help but do it now that we have reached this amazing milestone in our career.” Stones fans around the world are pleased that Keith, Charlie and Ronnie agreed with their lead singer. The result is a truly great pictorial essay. \ cperkin@theweeklyreview.com.au ROLLING StONeS 50 by the Rolling Stones » $49.95 (Thames and Hudson)

Lee Child’s 17th Jack Reacher novel hit the bookstands a few days before Father’s Day and, based on early sales figures, its Australian distributors expect it to do well until at least Christmas. What’s not to love about this latest instalment? Our hero is back, this time hitch-hiking across Nebraska, where he is picked up by a carload of dodgy travellers. Reacher realises his three companions are connected to the police road blocks. But what do they want with him? The plot thickens … \

wine WINeRIeS: A VISUAL JOURNeY edited by emma Peacock » $39.95 (Think Publishing) Indie bookshops such as ours are regularly asked for coffee-table books depicting an aspect of Australian life. Sadly, there are too few choices, which is why this new A4-on-its-side hardcover will do exceptionally well. The book, which is more of a pictorial essay, is divided into states, then wineries. Each winery is introduced by a 250-word overview; the photos follow. And while the images are outstanding, it’s a shame they are not accompanied by a powerful narrative about the growing regions, various grape varieties, the wineries and their labels. Still, it’s a great gift for friends who live in other countries, wine aficionados – or both. \

Sunday Life food columnist Kate Gibbs has produced an attractive and affordable softcover cookbook designed to appeal to those who are starting out in the kitchen, or who have been muddling around in one for years but have failed to improve their culinary skills. Gibbs takes some of the Australian kitchen’s basic dishes and gives them a modern twist: seeded orange scones, spiced roast pumpkin, lentil and feta salad, spaghetti pesto and chocolate fudge sauce cake are just a few of our favourites. \

He generally ignored Rule 7: Going whichever way Wilfred wants to go.” This beautiful story about individuality and free spirits unites children’s author and illustrator Oliver Jeffers with some important landscape artworks. The result is a quietly determined but loving moose, a little boy who is perplexed why no animal would want to follow orders, and great art. \

He might be a fictional character in Vita Catalano’s film Story of Jack, but statistics tell us that Jack’s story is playing out in schoolyards across the country.

victim, but there are underlying problems in the creation of a bully, and the film addresses that too.” It’s a triangular message, but one Catalano has already seen resonate with all three groups. “One child raised their hand at the end of a screening and said, ‘I have to go into the schoolyard at lunchtime and apologise to the kid I’ve been picking on for months’,” she says. “The teachers and I all looked at each other and thought, ‘Well, look at that’.” John Clark, principal of Ivanhoe Primary School was present at the film’s screening for years 5 and 6 and says the story was important in stimulating a dialogue on bullying. “Bullying is very topical among students at that age level,” he says. “They’re starting to think about the effects of it, and this film provided the kids with some good discussion points.” Catalano has made her way around an astounding number of schools in Victoria with Story of Jack. Without funding, however, her journey has ground to a halt. “I’ve invested thousands of dollars of my own money into this project already. I’ve had hundreds of requests for copies and I can’t fulfil them. I just don’t have the resources.” While distribution of the film is nearly impossible without assistance, Catalano hasn’t given up hope and is making plans to further her anti-bullying crusade through her acting classes. Currently writing scripts that centre on bullying, Catalano wants to encourage children to act out scenarios, and then swap roles to put themselves in the place of each character. “This is something I have to incorporate into my classes because I can’t have one more child coming up to me and saying, ‘I just want to be normal, like everybody else,” she says. “It’s not fair. Everybody has the right to be who they are.” Although her goal was to make a difference in the schoolyard, Catalano says that producing Story of Jack was a big part of her own healing process. “The most rewarding thing about Story of Jack has been the positive response from everybody. Most people diagnosed with cancer just crumble, but I’m proud I’ve managed to turn it into something positive.” \ Jdavy@theweeklyreview.com.au

I

don’t go to the cinema nearly as regularly as I’d like to. I make mental lists of all the movies I’d like to see, get overwhelmed and stay at home in front of the television holding a book and the newspaper so that I don’t feel like I’m wasting my life. Then on a random weekend, without anyone squeezing my cheeks, I go and see a bunch of movies, one after another. I’m a binge cinema goer. Maybe I’m not good at pleasure. Woody Allen has a word for it: “anhedonia”, the inability to have pleasure. And without question, sitting in a cinema waiting for a movie to begin is an immeasurable pleasure, unless an irritating ringtone changes the feng shui or half the cinema is lit up by SMS users. Can someone please manufacture a big stick with a fist on the end of it so I can lash out at these savages! The actual cinema itself is a finite world that we enter for a designated amount of time in order to suspend reality; the rows of identical seats, the silent carpeted floor and our eyes staying focused only on the screen all combine to seclude us from our regular lives. And I believe it’s this childlike passion to enclose ourselves and to settle in (remember doona tents, huts and tree cubby houses?) that helps us suspend belief and become part of the cinematic experience. The Rivoli Cinema in Camberwell Road, Hawthorn East, is elaborate and sumptuous. Everything from the seductive grand staircase to the rooftop garden invites you to enjoy the unique physical experience about to unfold when the lights dim. Designed by cinema architects Taylor & Soilleux, it’s

The Sun Theatre

(eddie morton)

one of the most sculptural and inventive examples of mixing jazz or streamline moderne style with art deco. This style is strongly associated with cinemas, and the Rivoli is architecturally the most unusual and distinctive of the small number of jazz or streamlined moderne-style cinemas remaining in Victoria. Melburnians have enjoyed the Rivoli’s decoration and atmosphere since October 11, 1940, when it opened with Ray Milland, in what seems the perfect film title, French Without Tears. If God is in the detail, then the Rivoli delivers a heavenly experience, inside and out. On the exterior you’ll notice the unusual bold modelling, while inside the extensive use of curves and circles is almost hypnotic. There’s the unique patterned plasterwork in the form of overlapping leaves in the wall panels, and if you look up in the main auditorium, you’ll find mechanical cogs in relief in the ceiling. Thankfully, this remains largely intact despite subdivision of the area under the balcony to create a second cinema in 1968. On a technical level, the Rivoli was the first cinema in Victoria to employ the “suspended and floating� method of internal-wall construction, where the ceiling and walls of the main auditorium were independent of the main structure and were shaped as required to provide the best possible acoustics. Staying at home is unthinkable (as are those blinds with that couch) when you could be having a cinema experience at the Rivoli. \ boomboom@rachelberger.com

8 Ballarat Street, Yarraville It’s worth taking the trip across the West Gate to go to the movies at this western suburbs icon. The Sun opened in 1938 and was a single-screen 1050-seat cinema, the most luxurious in the area. This cinema was, and is again today, a much-loved venue for the local community, and to cater for the new generation there are six boutique cinemas. all detailed in the original art-deco style. Unique to this cinema was the pram room, where babies in their prams were placed and you were given a number, if your baby started crying, your number was flashed on the screen. \

The Astor

The Balwyn Palace Cinema

1 Chapel Street, St Kilda The Astor is the last single-screen cinema of its kind in continuous operation in Melbourne since its grand opening more than 75 years ago. There was one winter in my life when every new relationship started with a first date at the Astor. The second date would be predicated on which film the potential boyfriend had suggested the first time; oh, and how well he could toss a salad. I sat through a lot of double features at the Astor that winter, alone, and loved it. The foyer continues to be full of enigmatic characters as diverse as the classic and cult films projected on screen. \

231 Whitehorse Road, Balwyn Perhaps it’s the selection of quality commercial films alongside provocative art-house cinema that makes for a diverse and loyal following at this venue. The Palace Cinema first opened as a single-screen theatre in 1930. It has entertained and been a rendezvous location for several generations. In the 1990s it was converted into a multiplex, and recently when the foyer was restored, the original 1930s tiled floor was uncovered. Again, we get the best of both worlds: a state-of-the-art, comfortable venue that retains the charm and aesthetics of its long and fond history. \

Ode tO my suburb \ LIAM CARTER’S HEART BELONGS TO DIAMOND CREEK

N

ear the end of the Hurstbridge line, I once overheard a youngster describe his friend as having “Greensy skin, but a Diamo heart”. I thought it was pretty funny. In a few words, he had captured the vernacular of the area I had once called home and the suburban rivalries that we all knew and respected as teenagers. Then it got me thinking, did I, too, have a Diamo heart? My parents were no longer living on Campbell Street at the time. I was neither here nor there, living between university interstate and mates’ share houses in the inner north. But there’s something about your home town that sticks. Maybe it goes without saying that the place you grew up in remains, if not under your skin, then somewhere very close to your heart. Diamond Creek will always be that place for me. We moved to Diamo (postcode 3089) when I was five. Our place was a 1940s farmhouse on an acre (0.4 of a hectare) block not far from the Challenger Street Reserve and the bike track that winds its way through the backblocks of Eltham to the Diamond Creek town centre. As a kid, that was my main travel route. It would take me and my bike to school, to the Diamo pool on hot days, to the milk bar and to the fish-and-chip shop, where you could buy $1 worth of chips. It would pass the park that once housed an old red aeroplane, which was later taken over by netball courts and netball mums. The cool kids would “hang” there. They called themselves the “Park Chillin’ Diggers”. Sometimes they would migrate down to the BMX jumps, which you can still see from the train between Diamond Creek and

Eltham. It was the sort of town where kids ruled fish-and-chip shops in town – protested then lamented the roost. the arrival of the McDonald’s in 2001.

We mustn’t forget that Diamond Creek pre-dates town fair after dark. Doreen’s Laurimar Estate by more than 160 years.

We agisted horses on land just around the to one of the town’s earliest buildings, we learnt much corner from our house and would go riding along dirt about our past as a goldmining village.

A PLAN COMES TOGETHER

\ 9 GLEN DRIVE, EAGLEMONT, 3084

M

eeting the brief is one thing, but building your clients’ ultimate dream home is another all together. However, that’s exactly what Hawthorn-based architect Ilario Cortese achieved here at 9 Glen Drive Eaglemont. Having already completed a renovation for the vendors at their previous property in Glen Iris, Cortese approached this much bigger project with a lot of trust from his clients. He understood their needs, values and aspirations – and would draw on this understanding to create a house that is everything the vendors could have wanted and more. The project took three years to complete. It started in 2005 with the demolition of the original 1930s brick house, which had been patchily updated in the ’80s. Needless to say, it wasn’t the house but its 1336-square metre block on Mount Eagle Estate that enticed the vendors to move across the river. The orientation and gentle slope of the block dictated much of Cortese’s design. The main living hub opens out, not to the rear to catch the views, but to the northern aspect at the side of the house. This showers the house and outdoor terrace with natural light, while a deep overhang from the top floor acts as buffer against excessive heat. Ensuring the house was thermally sound was right up there on the vendors’ brief. They wanted the property to be as sustainable as possible, for the sake of everyday comfort and the environment. The vendors like to start the tour of this house in reverse, from deep in the backyard, where it is easy to see how their needs and aspirations have been so perfectly realised. Landscape designer Prue Watson tiered the lawns and littered them with nut and fruit trees, including espaliered apples along the fence. A chook pen and in-ground trampoline resides on the lower tier, and two 40,000-litre water tanks are concealed beneath another. Up by the pool, it becomes apparent that the travertine tiles out here are the same as those on the floors inside, albeit with a different finish. This not only creates a seamless flow from inside to out, particularly when the bi-fold doors are

open, but the travertine also captures the heat and warms the house in cooler months. The house is so thermally efficient that the vendors only receive bills for gas, and generate enough energy through the solar panels on the roof to sell it back to the grid. The windows are all double glazed and the shell of the house is double brick. Skylights were added in the family hub to ensure the space is constantly flush with natural light and is comfortable to live in. The vendors even had an eco-audit on Cortese’s plans to ensure they were doing everything possible to minimise their environmental footprint. What quickly becomes clear on the tour of this house is that sustainability and luxury are not competing ideals. Not one single creature comfort has been sacrificed here. The kitchen is all CaesarStone and stainless steel, the lounge area has a large gas fireplace with stone surrounds, and sunken below the family hub is a cinema room complete with projector and screen. A library/sixth bedroom is nearby; it leads out to a side patio shared with the large laundry. The split-level floor plan was devised to follow the incline of the block – a smart, sustainable move that gives the house many wonderful visual angles and perspectives. Take the entrance foyer, with its 3.3-metre ceilings, as an example. From here you can see along the hall to a perfectly placed window that shows off views across the Eaglemont treetops. To the left of the foyer is a four-car garage, and to the right is the parents’ wing. It includes a study and large main bedroom with dressing room and travertine-clad en suite. Double doors in the bathroom open to the 10-person infinity-edge spa that spills water over to the pool below. The kids’ wing is upstairs and comprises four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a rumpus with balcony overlooking the old Heidelberg town hall clock tower. When asked, as the tour ends, if the result exceeded their expectations, the vendors did not waiver. “Absolutely. It’s just such a beautiful house to live in.” \ LIAM CARTER property@theweeklyreview.com.au

ivanhoe east It’s the 1037-square metre block just opposite Ivanhoe East’s iconic Uniting Church that will be of real interest to buyers here. Village shopping is just down the hill, King Street preschool is across the road and the historic primary school that once educated Cate Blanchett is just a short and safe stroll away. However, the block’s original 1947 house should not be excluded from the picture. Agent Liz Walker calls it “a good honest home” worthy of consideration in future plans. For one, it is set well back from the street behind a beautifully maintained cottage garden dotted with age-old trees, lavender, camellias, and stone walls and paths. Typical of mid-century design, the house has been built with high-quality materials. The double-brick shell is wrapped in multipane windows. Although mostly in original form, the interiors, like the garden, have been kept in impeccable condition by the property’s sole owner over the past 63 years. The property’s living areas are oriented to the north, which should give the next owner a good blueprint for what to do next. Walker sees great scope for an extension out into the garden, which has more than enough capacity to accommodate a bigger house. And if the next owners were to go up, surely they would discover views across Ivanhoe’s riverside parklands. \ liam carter

Blending in with the surrounding environment, this timber-and mud-brick residence provides plenty of views of its extensive gardens – and the King parrots who visit daily. Extended 10 years ago by the current owners, it is a substantial house of four bedrooms (three with en suites), a main bathroom, a study and several living spaces. Cathedral ceilings with exposed-timber beams add to its character. A carpeted sunken lounge is cosy and has beautiful views of the garden. A central open-plan kitchen, meals and family room has a Coonara heater that effectively warms the space. The kitchen has an old wood stove as well as a conventional oven. There are three bedrooms downstairs; the one at the back has its own entrance, making it perfect for a teenager. Upstairs provides treetop views from its rumpus/informal lounge room. Outside, there are several outdoor entertainment areas, including a deck enveloped by trees and a decked spa. \ emma houghton

With plenty of cupboard space, a Neff gas stove and oven, and stylish benchtops, the kitchen also overlooks the north-west-facing back garden. A large, separate laundry leads to an additional living space at the rear of the house that could be used as a rumpus area or a home office. The gardens all around the house are neat and tidy, with a central lawn surrounded by easy maintenance garden beds. There is a second undercover entertainment area next to the lawn.

When the current owners built this brick-veneer house in 1969 they didn’t have any neighbours. These bush blocks in the Greenhills Estate weren’t uninhabited for much longer, though. This house was designed for indoor and outdoor living – evidenced by the various points from which the garden can be reached, two outdoor entertainment areas and the lovingly established bush garden that provides an adventure playground for kids. In this multilevel layout, three bedrooms with built-in wardrobes have lovely street and garden vistas. The formal living and dining room has high ceilings, exposed timber beams, floor-to-ceiling windows and leads to a brick-paved courtyard patio. An open-plan kitchen and family room leads to the patio as well as the second entertainment deck. The kitchen has striking black benchtops and contrasting white cabinetry. The main bedroom with en suite and walk-in wardrobe is at the rear and has a great northerly aspect. \ emma houghton

It is easy to see why one family has held on to this house for the past 100 years. It started life as a two-bedroom, block-fronted Victorian. The original part of the house has two large bedrooms off a wide hallway and a living room. They are beautiful rooms with high ceilings, decorative ceiling roses, cornices and ornamental tiled fireplaces in the bedrooms. The large living room has a working open fireplace (now tapestry brick). Extensions have been made to both sides of the house, adding a bathroom and large laundry off the hall and an outdoor deck to the living room. This optimises the northern light, transforming what would have been dark Victorian spaces. The living room now has floor-to-ceiling windows that not only bring in the light but also provide garden views. On the other side of the house, a formal dining or third bedroom has been added. It leads to a rear kitchen and family/meals area. Unexpected views to the Dandenong Ranges are a highlight. \ eMMA HOUGHTON

Address

This house is a good example of why this quiet pocket of St Helena is popular with families. It backs onto a park with a playground and walking trails and offers plenty of accommodation for a large family. In fact some of the living space could be converted to bedrooms without making the house feel crowded. The lower-ground floor has a huge space (8m x 5m) with its own entrance that could become a teen’s retreat. There is an abundance of living space inside and out, including a formal lounge and dining room, an open-plan kitchen and meals area, a massive rumpus or home-theatre space (projector screen included), two outdoor decks and a gazebo. The lounge/dining area is airy and bright with particularly high ceilings and pleasant street views. The master bedroom upstairs has a walk-in wardrobe, en suite and extra study or nursery area. The garden has been lovingly established with a variety of fruit trees and raised veggie patches. \ eMMA HOUGHTON
