|At eight years old, an impoverished Bert Facey was forced to start the backbreaking, dawn to dusk life of a farm labourer. Unschooled, his father dead, abandoned by his mother, by the age of twenty he had survived the rigours of pioneering the harsh Australian bush and the slaughter of the bloody WWI campaign at Gallipoli. Despite it all, in 1915 he finds happiness in his marriage to his wife Evelyn. This lasts nearly sixty years and carries on an inspirational tale of one man's struggle against seeminly overwhelming odds.|

An Australian Classic, with high production standards. Shame that it is 4X3 aspect ratio, and low grade video tape/film source.
An Australian Classic, with high production standards. Shame that it is 4X3 aspect ratio, and low grade video tape/film source. So does not have resolution of recent 16x9 productions. Soundtrack is crisp and clear.

Review A Fortunate Life
A good biography of a very humble Australian who endured a variety of hardships & events which, living as we do today, makes me appreciate how lucky we are. Well produced and narrated. The story follows closely his life from an early age, and I can only recommend that you read the book as well.

I think it will be an Australia classic just as the book is.
It is the closest movie to the what's written in the book than any other I've seen. It would have been better if there were subtitles ans the sound of the voices were not clear all the time.
