Handle with Care

Handle with Care (Paul Cox, 1985) wr. Anne Brooksbank; telemovie; Anna Maria Monticelli, Monica Maughan, Nina Landis, Lucinda Cowden, Alex Taifer, Norman Kaye; 90 min.

This is an 'educational' film about breast cancer. I can imagine the same information being better imparted in a thirty minute doco. It doesn't need the full weight of the sensitivity of Paul Cox and his ensemble, over ninety minutes. No-one in this acts well—not that they have much to work with. It's like an amateur theatrical production—and I suppose it is.
