Bruno got that scene by the scruff of the neck. He just marched up to that door... and he cut loose. it was the quintessential Bruno.

Used to give me the creeps living out here in the middle of nowhere. That's why I left. I couldn't stand it Tiny. I tried to talk to Al about it, but we never got anywhere.
– Jacqui (Anna Maria Monticelli) to Tiny (Desmond Kelly)
God Foley, what do you want from my life? You've got my wife and the kid. Tell you what, I'll give you the shirt from my back. Here yar. She bought it.
– Al (Bruno Lawrence) to Ray Foley (Keith Aberdein)
The film is so deeply imbued with a New Zealand atmosphere ... should be top ranked too because its story demands and gets so much more from its actors than most films dare to try for ... it's a a wrenching portrayal of a marriage breakdown.
– Geoff Chapple, reviewing Smash Palace in The Listener, 16 January 1982, page 24
