Anyone watching this - I absolutely loved the film, mysterious, ethereal, excellent representation of late 19th Century English stuffiness in the heat of the Australian outback. So I was intrigued when my Sky box showed me a TV version. It got a good review here - Picnic at Hanging Rock review – as mysterious as the film, but bigger in every way - although I've also seen 2 star review, also in the guardian. I really don't like this review though. It pans the films score with the pan pipes which for me totally adds to eerie aura. I saw the first ep last night and it doesn't get anywhere near the film for me, there's no sense of the stifling heat, sometimes it looks totally overcast, the sun should be beating down on limp white frocks. I'll finish it to see their take on the mystery, but as far as the original book is concerned, there is no answer to seek, it's pure mystery and a sense of a moment, which the film captured superbly - one of the rare films I actually bought the DVD of.
