1986, Cascade Films, 90 min, Australia, Dir: Nadia Tass

Socially awkward but a mechanical genius, Malcolm (a character inspired by the director’s late brother) loses his job as a Melbourne tram operator and takes in a couple of boarders to make ends meet. When he learns the pair are petty criminals, Malcolm uses his knack for gadgetry to help them pull off a series of dazzling robberies. Both warm and hilarious, Nadia Tass’ debut feature won eight Australian Film Institute Awards, including Best Film. Internationally, it won more than 20 awards.
