In the beginning of the Second World War, Germans, Austrians and persons without nationality living in France are sent to the concentration camp of Les Milles by France government. Commander Charles Perrochon is the responsible for this camp and he promises to the leaders of the prisoners to protect them from the Nazis. When France is invaded by the Germans, Commander Perronchon will disobey orders and his superiors trying to save these men. He gets a train, a ship and money from USA to send about eight hundred of these prisoners to the safety of Casablanca, in Marrocos.

Lee M (jp) wrote: To use a well-worn phrase, Head On will certainly not be for everyone: not just for its unabashed gay sexual content, but because it's a character-led film with an open ending. On the other hand, it is a film which credits its audience to think and make its own conclusions, and that is to be encouraged.

La regia della Bigelow mi ha colpito molto, anche se a tratti l'ambientazione circostante non viene mai contestualizzata le riprese restano comunque solide e mai rovinate da eccessivi tagli come spesso capita.

Nothing is really done really poorly, except developing the relationship between Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray. Personally, I found their relationship quite shallow and not very interesting. I can see how it could be enjoyable in a cheesy kind of way. Acting, directing, editing, etc. is all very "whatever". None of it makes the film unwatchable, but none of it is particularly noteworthy either. The one thing I did enjoy was the soundtrack. I actually enjoyed it more than the movie itself. It's by no means good enough to warrant watching the movie, but it was admittedly nice to listen too. I can't say I liked this movie, but if all require from your movie watching experience is some cheesy romance, you'll be satisfied. You could watching a much worse movie, like a Nicholas Sparks movie.

The cliched Australiana personas of the characters who appear all throughout the film is almost an insult to viewers. It seems just about every character in an Australian film these days has to act like some over-the-top Aussie twit. Here it's the psycho carjacker, the cop, the girlfriend, the girlfriend's brother, the mother, the radio guy (huge cringe every time he speaks). What is going on in the Australian film industry? It's regressing back to the 80s. It's all retro with none of the charm. These films expect to be taken seriously, while doing this ridiculous Australian caricature thing.Also, it's just one of many innumerable silly things in this film, but apparently a rave party can't be heard over a driveway gate. There's also some terrible editing between shots where the character positions and faces don't even remotely match up.But again, the thing that lets this film down is the small-scale thinking all the way through. It's the last few hours in earth, but nobody seems to really care that much. The people who made this should go and watch On the Beach again, and see how beautifully that weaves human relationships and impending doom together so well.Another Aussie film somehow gets funding despite delivering so little. I can't believe there are not talented people there who can do better than this sort of thing.
