going around at the moment. It was exhibitionistic and provocative of French magazine Charlie Hebdo to publish satirical nude cartoons of the prophet Muhammad while violent protests flare around the world about the stupid and equally provocative film that few have seen, called Innocence of Muslims. Yes, yes, freedom of speech, no surrender to violent blackmail etc, but who exactly is informed and illuminated by the publication of images that much of the Muslim world has already demonstrated it has no sense of humour about? What’s the point? The knee-jerk Muslim protests are thin-skinned and bullying – but what does anyone expect? I too would hope instead for the pious but contained outrage of, say, the Catholic Church at the release of Monty Python’s Life of Brian. That protest seemed ridiculous and censorious at the time: now it seems like a model of decorous public debate and restraint. So much offensive behaviour; such thin skin. And not even a veneer of restraint. \

6 The weekly review \ SEPTEMBER 26, 2012


Well, if We’re talking over-achievers, let’s meet renee lim. Dux of her school in Perth, she could have been anything, and in fact turned out to be several things. She’s an actor, a television presenter (Destination Flavour, on SBS) a dancer, and a teacher of dancing, to adults and to kids after school. Oh, and she’s also a medical doctor. Being solely a doctor wasn’t her childhood dream. That dream was multifaceted. “Until 17, when I finally had to choose what I was going to do, I was going to be a doctor on weekdays, a lawyer on weekends, an actor on the holidays and a dancer at night,” she says. “I’ve managed to do pretty much all of them, except for the lawyer part. “When I was applying for uni I just applied for everything. Medicine, law, engineering, performing arts, at all these different universities. And when I got into everything, I thought ‘What do I want to do?’. I ended up choosing medicine.” I’ve met Lim, 34, at St Ali, a bustling café in South Melbourne, where her groovy persona fits in well. She speaks with passion about all her endeavours and is extremely versatile, even within the discipline of medicine. She works as a locum in emergency wards around Sydney, as a “geriatrician” for older people and in palliative care. “It’s quite different,” she says of her work. “Most geriatricians would never want to do emergency and most emergency people would never do palliative care. I work as a contractor, so you go where the work is, to start with. “The work for me was mostly in emergency. I’ve always had an interest in geriatrics because it’s holistic medicine, multifunctional medicine. Lots of things go wrong and the question is how do you balance what you do right? It’s less black and white than other areas of medicine, and I like that. I like the challenge of making decisions with patients, which is where palliative care came in, because palliative care is all about someone deciding to die and doing that with dignity and doing that with the choices they want to make as to how they want to die. “It is emotional (and) it’s surprisingly really rewarding. Everyone dies. Every time you deal with a patient in hospital they could be dying. But the difference in this case is … they have their own sense of control and power over what happens to them. You see people look back over their lives and make changes, even in those last weeks and months. The change that you see in people is quite inspiring, quite amazing.” Emergency is meant to patch people up and move on. “I tend to be a little more involved,” she says. “Some of my emergency patients say ‘Where do you normally work? Can I come and see you after this?’, and I say ‘Unless you want to come back to the emergency department and wait six hours, then probably not’.” Renee Lim was born and grew up in Perth, a dutiful, energetic and extroverted girl. “I’ve been performing – singing, dancing, acting – since I was five,” she says. She was a star student. “I did very well at school. It wasn’t a very academic school. I didn’t go to a selective or a private school. A very small number of people in my high-school year went to university. Getting dux of school unfortunately doesn’t put me in the same category as a lot of the private schools.” Lim’s parents separated when she was five. Her mother moved to Sydney and then to Malaysia, where she had family. Renee was largely raised by her father. “Sydney was her dream place,” Lim says of her mother. “When she moved to Perth, it was for my dad. She always wanted to go to Sydney. Sydney was bright and glamorous and fun and I think that’s where she would have chosen, but instead she went to Perth. The parochial nature of Perth … 30 years ago – it was very different back them.” Lim’s mother lived in Malaysia for much of her daughter’s schooling life. “I would travel to Malaysia to see her quite often.”

Destination Flavour is on SBS Thursdays at 8pm.

The teenage Renee travelled a lot, including to Sydney where her mother lived for a while. She travelled to the US and “a lot of Asia”. At 17 she went to live in Sydney to study. Years of travel and helping her single father had prepared her for living away from home. “I’d done a lot of travelling before I got on that plane to come to Sydney. My main fear – and my parents always remind me of this – I remember saying to my mother and father ‘What if no one likes me? What if I don’t make any friends?’.” That was never a problem. Young Renee was popular and a leader. Friends looked to her for guidance and support. She had the empathy for people and the capacity to listen that was going to serve her well later in a medical career. It helped her cope with home life. Her father remarried and he had a son with his new wife. I asked Lim if she missed her mother. “I guess so. Yeah. You have two choices – you either rebel or you adapt. I chose to adapt. I think that’s my natural personality; to go with the flow.” How did her father cope? “He coped as best he could.” And her stepbrother? “He’s 12 years younger than me. So for the first 12 years it was me and my dad, and then the stepmum came into the picture.” Did Lim ever wonder why her mother had gone? “Definitely. She went because she didn’t belong in a place like Perth. She had family in Malaysia. In some ways it was the culture she understood. She remarried and her partner drew her back there.” Did this experience mean Renee grew up more quickly? ���Oh definitely. The words ‘old soul’ are probably thrown around a lot when people talk about me. I used to hate it when I was a kid – ‘I’m not an old soul!’ – but now I probably accept it. I don’t know whether I was born with it or if it came about because of my childhood.” Why old soul? “From a very young age I was probably very much the woman in the house. That was something I took on. I take on responsibility very quickly. Asian cultures – and ethnic cultures in general – especially in the ’80s and early ’90s, would form little cliques. Because you’re all in Perth, all these Chinese and Malaysians would all hang out together. “There was a group of about six kids. I wasn’t the oldest child but I was the one who was always in charge, the one who would keep them all together, I’d be at the head of the table at the restaurants, I would be the one who organised all the games … I’ve always been very responsible. And probably a little bit more aware of emotional states of people and reacted to that. It meant at school being the prefect, being the one who organised the graduation. And being quite happy to not be the centre of attention.”

Lim has nurtured her acting career alongside medicine. She spent three seasons playing Constable Jung Lim in the SBS drama East West 101, set around the major crime squad in Sydney. “That was a great experience,” she says. For a year she was in the hospital drama All Saints. She was in the cast in 2008 when young actor and All Saints cast member Mark Priestley leapt from a Sydney hotel window to his death. “That was quite horrible,” she says. “It was a weird experience being on the outskirts of that because everyone in the cast as regulars were very affected and knew him quite well. “As a doctor, that was very full-on for me … He was going to come to one of my dance classes. We spoke two or three weeks before it happened. But I wasn’t on the inside circle. It was interesting to be on the periphery … because normally I would be involved in it. I’m the one my friends come to when things get bad. And as a doctor, I’m the one dealing with the suicidal, depressed patient. That sense of having no purpose, being ineffectual, was quite a challenging one for me.” Lim has recently known tragedy closer to her own life. Last year her partner of 14 months died of cancer. “It was quite huge. And obviously unexpected. You deal with life as best you can.”

she has strong philosophies about

the way life should be lived. “If you just choose every day to be the best you can as a human being … The fingerprints I will leave on the world – I can only control what I do in this world on that day … As long as every single day those fingerprints that I leave are mine and have some integrity.” She feels blessed about her acting career. “In acting and performing, it’s luck. You can be the best at your job, you can work as hard as you like but the best and the hardest-working don’t always make it. So I feel very lucky to be in the situation I’m in.” At 34 she’s had great challenges and triumphs. “I’ve had such amazing experiences. Doing palliative care, my concept of death is very different from most people’s. I see death as a part of life. People get quite scared of it and say ‘I’ve got things I have to do still’ and I say that if I died tomorrow I’d be really happy. I don’t have things I’ve (always) wanted to do, which in one sense makes it easier to tick the boxes when there aren’t boxes to tick.” Lim has a busy life. Until a year ago she taught dance each week – “contemporary jazz, bit of hip-hop, bit of funk” – but things got too hectic, especially as she is following up her role on SBS’s Food Investigations with the food and travel show Destination Flavour. It didn’t take too much convincing to get her on board, especially as she’s not the biggest foodie in the world. “I love cooking. I am not a foodie. It’s a hard thing to say nowadays, right, because everyone’s a foodie. But don’t get me wrong, I’m happy to pay a lot of money for food, so if that makes me a foodie that’s OK.” The sell for this new show was easy. “Once again, hook: human, people. This show is about people. Less about the food, more about the people. We travel to different parts of Australia and we find people who are passionate about food: the food producer at one end or amazing chefs at the other, from truffles grown in WA to the young ex-rock singer who farms marron in south-western Australia. “Their stories involve a lot of failures and a lot of maybes and a lot of time. I (am) someone who likes to educate and open up people’s horizons. People take so much for granted.” That’s something Renee Lim has never done. \ pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au We Welcome your feedback @

Gris or grigio?

(GARy SISSonS)

ost wine drinkers will have a moment that makes an indelible imprint; when everything just clicks and the memory of the wine stays with them forever. For Kevin McCarthy and wife Kathleen Quealy, it was a bottle of Alsatian pinot gris bought from the old Richmond Hill Cellars in the mid-’80s. The wine was not only memorable for the two young Mornington Peninsula winemakers – it was life changing. “As we first tasted a bottle of Alsace pinot gris we nearly fell off our chairs,” says McCarthy, whose pinot gris and pinot grigio have long set the standard for the variety in Australia. Before the bottle had been emptied, McCarthy and Quealy were set on producing their own, but there were a few hurdles to jump before they made their first pinot gris in 1992. “It was a step into the unknown, planting that pinot gris. Our resources back then amounted to a credit card – we were the classic two young kids with an idea,” McCarthy says. “When we decided to put it in, there were no nurseries that had it (for immediate purchase) so we had to go to Wagga Wagga to a vineyard that had it planted to take cuttings.” The pair then had to convince the Mornington Peninsula establishment of the merit of their plans. They wanted to plant the wrong type of pinot – the peninsula was pinot noir territory back then. Success built quickly at McCarthy’s and Quealy’s T’Gallant winery (it’s now owned by Treasury Wine Estates and McCarthy still makes the wines) and after their third harvest the wines were quickly developing a following. Today, more than 50 wineries on the Mornington Peninsula produce a pinot gris or pinot grigio and 140 hectares are shaded by pinot gris vines. The clay soils help to give the wines a richness, and a long ripening period – due to the maritime climate of warm days and cool nights – means the wines generally have good flavour development and good acidity. Peninsula pinot gris ages well. With time, the wine loses its fruit characteristics, develops savoury and spice characters and becomes more textural. \ bthomas@theweeklyreview.com.au

The same slightly pink, waxy-skinned grape produces pinot gris and pinot grigio. Traditionally, the grape is picked early in north-eastern Italy to produce crisp grigio, while in France’s Alsace region they pick their grapes later and riper to produce the more textural gris. However, there’s a huge swing between crisp and textural and a lot of grey areas in between. “The market is confused. There’s no way you can categorise gris/grigio as a style, nothing hard and fast so we had to create a new language,” says Kevin McCarthy, who has been working with scientists at the Australian Wine Research Institute to develop the Pinot G scale. This categorises wines on a 10-point scale from crisp to luscious and is starting to appear on more back labels. “The idea with the Pinot G scale is to empower the consumer so they don’t have to guess.” KEviN M C CARThy & KAThlEEN QuEAly

etro knitwear doesn’t belong just in your grandma’s wardrobe. In fact, when the Givoni sleepwear label took over the Slade knitwear brand at the end of 2010, the people there decided to lure a young clientele by bringing back knitwear with a 1950s and ’60s twist. The company is riding on the coattails of Mad Men fever, and it’s working a treat. Slade’s latest spring/summer campaign would be a good fit at a swap-and-bop car show or a daytime rockabilly-themed party. It’s all about channelling the good old days when knitwear ruled (as opposed to T-shirts) and luring the young market to embrace the swing back in time. Photographed at two retro homes, Slade reminds us that being prim and proper is a good thing. The message is all about fitted capri pants and 100 per cent cotton knits, collared retro tops for a summery touch and ribbed knits matched with pearls for retro elegance. There are bright shades of lilac, bursts of red and cable-front knits in fuchsia. “These days with retro being everywhere the young generation is willing to wear something that the older set might wear,” explains Michelle Givoni, who took over the iconic Melbourne brand with her husband Brandon. “The bright colours and styles are what young people want. It’s the right time for us to embrace that retro style. We wanted to introduce a younger style in the market – it’s definitely the new market and clientele we’re after.” When Brandon and Michelle took over the business, they weren’t exactly new to the game of manufacturing. They had garnered years of experience running the women’s sleepwear label Givoni (Brandon is a third-generation family member). For the husband-and-wife team it was not just about taking on another family empire, it was about applying the same hearty ethos. “The Slade family didn’t need the workload any more and we were more than happy to the look continue the business for them,” says Brandon. Be retro inspired with knitwear “They knew and cared for the brand and knew we that takes its cues from the prim had the same respect for it. We still run knitwear period of the 1950s and ’60s. for the older clientele, but wanted to introduce Fashion gets a new wardrobe something new with the takeover. with cable knitwear, capri pants “I was looking for a Victorian sales agent to take and bold block colours that also on the Givoni brand when I came across Mark allow room for pastel perfection. Slade – who was an agent himself and had similar clients to our customers. He came recommended to me. I interviewed him and Mark rang me to ask if I wanted to take over his family’s business. It was something Slade had clearly thought about. His father, Alex Slade, was still in the business at 86 years old and we considered it and said yes. “If somebody would have bought the brand they would have probably changed the label. But it was important for us to remain true to the brand and its legacy,” says Brandon. The Givonis source fabrics from buying trips that take them to Europe, New York and London. “We don’t consider ourselves the experts in this game. It’s really the customer who tells us what to do. They tell us what they like and don’t like,” says Brandon. “I think the secret is all about giving the customer what they want while also staying true to the brand.” \ jrocca@theweeklyreview.com.au

It is warming up slowly but surely, so you know what comes next – the trusty bronzers. Bronzers are the best things to give your skin a splash of colour. It is a gazillion times better than spray tan; it is more economical and you can do it in a flash. The trick is to know how to pick the right formula, colour and texture and, of course, how to apply them. If you are a fair maiden who gets sunburnt quickly, look for bronzers that have a tinge of pink or peach. If you have medium skin tone, go for bronzers that have a coppery tone, and for those with dark skin, bronzers that are deep and rich in colour are best. As much as it is tempting to resemble a pumpkin, especially coming up to Halloween, orange is not a shade that is flattering on humans. Do not go more than two shades darker that your normal skin tone. Having settled on the shade, powder bronzers with a suggestion of shimmer are a godsend for those with normal skin tone. Matte powder bronzers are ideal for oily skin and liquid bronzers are perfect for mature or dry skin. Once you have the shade and texture under your belt, the most important step is the all-important application. A make-up artist in New York shared this trick with me a couple years ago and I think it is just brilliant: use a large powder brush and swipe your powder bronze, tapping off the excess. Create a large number “3” on each side of your face, starting at the top of your forehead, sweeping the middle on your cheeks and finishing across your jaw line. Yes, you will momentarily look scary but, once you have buffed the “3” on both sides of your face, it will be seamless. Do not forget to give your neck and décolletage a gentle and even dusting of colour too. The end result is you looking glowingly amazing with a subtly sculptured face. For liquid bronzers, mix a small pearl-size dollop in your moisturiser or foundation; apply and blend evenly to your face, neck and décolletage. Always remember to finish the look with a hint of blush; bronzers without blush are like pies without chips. Cream blushers are best because they give a nice balance of flush and glow. \ dnaidu@theweeklyreview.com.au To read more reviews

ManeNocte Skin Care \ I can’t stop humming Night and Day, the well-known song by Cole Porter, while writing about new über-cool skin care ManeNocte (man-nay-nok-tay.) The medical Latin term means morning and night but I prefer to think of it as night and day – “Like the beat, beat, beat of the tom-tom, when the jungle shadows fall…” There I go again with that song. I came across the succinct range while nosing around the Royal Arcade in the city. The distinctive illustration by Canadian artist Acorn drew me to the products but the science behind the simple regimen won me over. There are two products in the range: Mane Day Cream SPF 15 (50g, $120) is a light gel that is full-on hydration. It has vitamin B3 to target pigmentation and zinc, sesame seed and gypsyweed to brighten, clarify and give the skin a certain oomph. It also has organic coconut water, rose and aloe. Nocte Night Nutrition (50g, $120) is everything your skin needs to repair and rejuvenate itself. It is chock-full of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and proteins derived from Russian black carrot, bilberry, mulberry, willow bark and sugar maple.

Too Faced Snow Bunny Caribbean Bronzer ($43.95) – the fail-safe bronzer for anyone with fair skin

PSST

E.L.F. Studio Bronzer ($9.99) – four shades to swirl around to achieve the perfect seamless hint of colour. BareMinerals Ready Bronzer in Deep End ($31.95) – rich, chocolately goodness for dark, luscious skin tones.

These formulations have resulted from harnessing up-to-the-minute ingredients, technology, research and data. The company behind the range is also dedicated to updating the products annually as new and more effective ingredients enter the market, because science does not stand still. This is version 1.0. The tight but effective range is an antidote to the convoluted and confusing multistep regimen of many products but, most importantly, they are extremely effective.

BOOKS \ feast on some delicious after-dinner conversation, writes corrie Perkin

THE DINNER by Herman Koch » $29.99 (Text Publishing)

(JEffREY COOLIDGE / GETTY IMAGES)

“Can you suggest a good book for our book club to read? It’s my turn to choose and I’m desperate.” This urgent plea is frequently heard around Melbourne’s bookshops – a good thing, because it suggests, first, that the city’s vigorous book-club scene is alive and well and, secondly, that club members are weaning themselves off a traditional prescribed reading-list formula and focusing instead on new releases that may provide spirited discussion. In recent weeks we have been recommending The Dinner, a novel by Dutch writer Herman Koch. Het Diner was first published in January 2009 and sold more than a million copies in Europe and Asia before the English edition was released last month. The reason for the three-year gap between the novel’s debut and its British and Australian release (it launches in the US this month) remains a mystery. What we do know? The Dinner, in just a few weeks, has won high praise from local critics and is selling well. We predict its reputation will spread and, come summer, its eye-catching cover will be spotted in Christmas stockings, on banana lounges, in beach bags and beside deck chairs. Koch’s structure is superb and his story unfolds like a finely crafted piece of theatre. Set in an upmarket restaurant in contemporary Amsterdam, we follow the meal of two couples, Paul Lohman and his wife Claire, and Paul’s brother, Serge – a liberal politician with a bright future – and his wife Babette. Very quickly the reader discovers this is no ordinary family catch-up; the Lohman brothers and their wives have come together to discuss the dastardly crime committed by their two teenage sons, Michel and Rick. Paul is the narrator, who charms us at first with his shrewd observations and liberal sympathies. But he is the innocent at the table and, as he gradually learns why the dinner has been arranged, the reader does also. The truth is awful. But their meal continues. The increasingly oppressive atmosphere of the restaurant is interrupted by flashbacks, visits outside to answer mobile-phone calls, recollections of past conversations and odd behaviour. Paul puts the pieces together about Michel and Rick’s crime, yet we remain perplexed about our narrator: why has Paul been left in the dark? Might his own past behaviours have influenced Michel? And why is his wife so determined to protect him? Just as Lionel Shriver’s We Need to Talk About Kevin poses serious nature-or-nurture questions about how we raise our children, Koch’s The Dinner forces us to consider what we would do if Michel or Rick was our 15-year-old son. Just as Christos Tsiolkas’ The Slap has no right or wrong outcome, similarly Koch leaves us sitting uncomfortably on a timber fence, wondering which way to jump and whose side we should be championing. Book clubs will find issues abound in The Dinner and their discussions will be vigorous. It is truly a feast worth devouring. \ cperkin@theweeklyreview.com.au

HOPE STREET, JERUSALEM by Irris Makler » $29.99 (HarperCollins)

MY BARCELONA KITCHEN by Sophie Ruggles » $45 (Murdoch Books)

21ST CENTURY RESIDENTIAL LANDSCAPE DESIGN by Dean Herald » $59.99 (Images Publishing)

German soldier Emil Becker returns from World War I defeated and deflated. As his labour-movement sympathies strengthen, so does his profile among the fledgling Nazi Party and its SS thugs. On the run from the authorities, Emil meets another labour-movement worker, Hannah, a Jewish London-born translator working in Brussels. Over the next 15 years, the couple’s love is sorely tested. when Emil is interned during World War II and sent to Australia, Hannah is forced to act. Based on the true story of Sydney writer Belinda Castles’ grandparents, this epic yarn will win many fans. \

Sydney-born journalist Irris Makler has been working in the Middle East as a freelance foreign correspondent for nine years. Her new autobiography recalls her decision to move to Israel after several years working in Moscow and the ties that bind her to her new home city, Jerusalem. Makler’s journalist’s card has given her access to the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and some of the Middle East’s hottest no-go zones. Yet despite the excitement of her new beat, something was missing in her life. Enter a handsome young musician and a stray dog called Mia. \

An Australian chef now living in Spain, Sophie Ruggles has written a book about the cuisine of her adopted country. She divides her chapters into regions rather than courses – the city, the town square, the market, the beach etc – and peppers each section with her own food memories and interpretations. Alas, this is one of Murdoch Books’ last food titles under its current ownership; the company is for sale and we’re likely to see significant changes in editorial direction. We mourn the loss of another great Australian publishing house and thank Murdoch for many fine food memories. \

At first glance, this glamorous new hardcover is not the kind of gardening book that would appeal to most Victorian gardeners. The author is based in Sydney and most of the 25 projects featured in the book are in New South Wales. But putting climate and aesthetic differences to one side, Dean Herald’s book certainly provides clues about how to achieve harmony and streamline design in your outdoor space. Worth the investment, especially if you are planning to incorporate a swimming pool or water feature in your new design. \

festival MELBOURNE FRINGE FESTIVAL \ September 26-October 14 » www.melbournefringe.com.au

music THE MAY KING AND HIS PAPER CROWN \ Drawn From Bees » www.drawnfrombees.com The debut from this self-proclaimed Brisbane “art rock” group is neither particularly arty nor rocky. Instead, it’s solid, radio-friendly stuff — sighing vocals, clean and catchy melodies and just enough guitar oomph to appeal to fans of Something For Kate or Boy and Bear. Single Of Walls and Teeth might flirt with edginess, but it feels carefully – almost clinically – constructed to give that impression. Like much of the record, it’s great fun, if a little too familiar. The artier moments amount to strange titles and flourishes of Queen-era heavy metal. Maniacs, in particular, would seem quite at home on A Night at the Opera. The track is one of the few here where the band seem ready to risk finding their own voice. Elsewhere, the album verges on the heavy but never strays too far from the safe and the sweet. \ To read more reviews

For its 30th birthday, Melbourne’s edgiest festival is displaying works from more than 4000 artists. Some will occupy traditional spaces, such as theatres, while others will appear in laneways, living rooms, backyards and on trams. It’s a festival that prides itself on open access, aiming to close the gap between artist and audience. This year, the public will be invited to use photo booths set up around the city to re-create scenes from their favourite festival moments. The resulting pics will form Double Take, an exhibition based at the North Melbourne Meat Market. As ever, this year’s festival takes a broad approach to what constitutes art. Fringe Furniture invites everyome to submit design masterpieces for exhibition. Drama Breaking follows the fallout from the sudden death of the premier, from the twin perspectives of his secret lover and a TV news program hoping for a scoop. Comedy Sect, Lies and Videotape takes a light approach to dark matters, as a young girl flees a cult but finds normal life no less freaky. The Burlesque Underground brings the red-light district to South Melbourne in an uninhibited cabaret paying sensual tribute to “man’s baser instincts”. Silent Monologues features five deaf women sharing their experiences through an Auslan interpreter and live drawing. Finally, Lives I’ve Seen turns mood swings into somersaults, with a circus performance examining life’s ups and downs through acrobatics and aerial stunts. \ More Fringe Festival, p22

ON THE ROAD \ Opens September 27, rated MA15+ www.ontheroad-themovie.com

MAD AS HELL \ SBS Two, Sunday September 30, 8.30pm The colourful life of Aussie actor Peter Finch should make for thrilling, scandalous television. An inveterate womaniser, drinker and teller of tall tales, Finch could singlehandedly keep the tabloids in business. The illegitimate offspring of a wartime affair, Finch was kidnapped by his father, given to a Buddhist monk, brought to Australia by friends of his grandmother and ended up a drunken swagman. Later, he had very public affairs with Vivien Leigh and Shirley Bassey. Acting might have saved him from the gutter, but we’re left with a sense of a career unfulfilled. His greatest moment was also his last. As Network’s ranting Howard Beale, Finch finally broke Hollywood, but any glory was extremely short-lived. Sadly, this is an oddly bloodless account, treating its rogueish subject with stifling reverence. \

mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au

Much like Cloud Atlas, Jack Kerouac’s On the Road seemed a novel unlikely to make a safe journey to the big screen. Both are books in which the telling is more important than the tale. Indeed, Kerouac’s beat-poet masterpiece tells no story at all. His characters meander without purpose from coast to coast, substituting road signs for plot points. While it’s too early to pass judgment on Cloud Atlas, On the Road manages to confound grim expectations. It’s an enjoyable, invigorating film. The leads are such good company that we don’t mind if we never end up anywhere. Their shambolic adventures – smoking, drinking

and shagging their way across 1940s America – capture the messy joy of Kerouac’s prose. More importantly, their selfish, reckless experimentation captures something universal about the experience of youth. Cast aside, it’s a good-looking film. The grandeur of desert plains provides an alluring contrast to the poky, nicotine-filled rooms of one city or another. Ultimately, the film evokes a road journey a little too well, feeling far longer than it should. Lacking any real story, director Walter Salles struggles to find somewhere to stop. The end credits arrive with a sense of relief, rather than satisfaction. \

or romance, melodrama and a good old-fashioned dose of rubbing up against strangers, nothing compares to a ride on a Melbourne tram. Many cities have tram systems, but we have an unfailing loyalty to ours not dissimilar to the idealised romance with one’s first true love. Melbourne is alone among Australian cities in retaining a large tram network. Although other Australian cities abandoned trams in the mid-20th century, Melbourne had the foresight to hang in and remain faithful. Like any relationship, we’ve had our issues: ticketing; the location of tram stops; the loss of our beloved connies; and the retention of older trams have all stirred public debate. But trams remain a vital public-transport service and without them our streets would feel very lonely indeed. Horses drew the first trams in the suburbs of Coburg, Hawthorn, Kew, Caulfield and Beaumaris. Later Melbourne’s cable tramway system was operated as a cable-car public transportation system from 1885 to 1940. Unimaginable now, but the system was designed and built as a single entity between 1885 and 1891. I wonder whether it came in under budget too? When completed, the system comprised almost 75 kilometres of double track and 1200 cars serving 17 routes. It exceeded the San Francisco and Chicago cable-car networks in size and was famous for its efficiency. The network was built by tramway trusts comprised of local councils and municipalities and, for most of its life, was operated by the Melbourne Tramway and Omnibus Company. However, in 1916 the service was
