Transfusion came as an unexpected but welcome, surprise. Whilst this film follows a well worn formula, its heartfelt, down to earth treatment, combined with absurdly good acting from its cast, sets it apart. Sam Worthington's and Matt Nable's performances, in what might best be characterised as a dysfunctional, proxy father son relationship, is simply outstanding. I think lots of kudos needs to be given to Edward Carmody too, who plays Sam's lost teenage son and for that matter, the rest of the cast too. I will say this film is not for everyone. Its sad but also extremely violent at times.I think if Australian underworld series, like Mr Inbetween appealed to you, this film will too. In summary, Transfusion is yet another, in a long line of real Australian cinematic gem's. Its raw, down to earth treatment sets it head and shoulders above many similar but more stylised productions, as does the superb acting from its capable cast.
