Nadia Tass's Malcolm was originally released in 1986 and struck a national chord with the Australian public as a genuine expression of offbeat Australian humour.
This charming comedy is the story of slow-witted Malcolm (Colin Friels, Dingo) a young man with a genius for mechanical devices. When Malcolm loses his job as a conductor - for building his own tram - he meets Frank (John Hargreaves, Long Weekend) a man with a shady past who moves in to help Malcolm pay the bills. Sue Malcolm's unusual entry into a life of crime.
Assisted by Frank, and the remote control tinker toys he once used to pick up milk from the corner shop, Malcolm lays his plans to pull off the heist of the century.
Accompanied by an infectious music score, you can again witness the magical combination of invention and true originality that saw Malcolm win 8 AFI Awards, including Best Film, in 1986.
