Turn on the subtitles!

THE HARD WORD (or words, meaning no one gets hurt) is a dandy little Australian film that tells a entertaining tale about three brothers who are periodically let out of prison to do 'jobs' for an outsider (in fact, a lawyer who is sleeping with the girfriend [Rachel Grifiths] of one of the brothers [Guy Pierce]). Each of the three brothers has a distinct personality which is well played by the generally excellent cast: this comraderie of the brothers makes the story clever, very funny at times, and warmly engaging. The film seems like a low budget romp but the cast and director and writer play it to the hilt. The main problem is with the exceedingly heavy Australian outback accents which, when superimposed on a musical score and soundtrack that is far too loud, are nearly undecipherable. Turn on the subtitles option on the DVD and you'll have a much better time enjoying this caper.
