Rolf De Heer, whose "Bad Boy Bubby" remains one of the finest movies of the
decade thus far, looks at an Australian couple's marriage entirely from the
point of view of their 7-year-old daughter, who has stopped speaking. The
effect is sustained with quiet mastery and the girl's internal monologues
ring remarkably true.
