I can't believe this is on-line now as I paid a small fortune a few years back to acquire this film simply because I wanted to see how well Jane Campion can act! She certainly could have continued with acting along with her directing if she'd wanted to! Anna did a great job and I still enjoy watching this though I've seen it quite a few times now. Thanks for sharing this and now others can see what a remarkable short this is!

God how wonderful......! Beautifully captured mother/ daughter cameos. I laughed aloud , felt pangs and totally "got" it. Quite brilliantly observed and beautifully filmed. Thank you for this gem.
Today working in an animal charity shop in Otaki, I came across " Ariel ", poems by Sylvia Plath. Perfect for my Poet daughter, I thought.
And inside, strongly inscribed, 'Edith Campion'.
I knew the name, although not the fact that she was the mother of Jane!
So,of course, in searching I find this remarkable small film, but by no means 'small' at all. A grand treasure! Congratulations Anna and crew, and many thanks. Liz Orbell, Otaki . Feb. 12th, 2015
( hard to believe it was made in 1989..! Where did those years go? )
