Big Wednesday DVD

Sunday, May 20th, 2007

At last the classic 60’s surf film Big Wednesday is available on DVD and is still as good as ever. If you’ve never seen it then amongst the backdrop of incredible surfing scenes, comes the story of 3 guys growing up under the uneasy shadow of the Vietnam war. But life throws up it’s own set of problems and hard decisions for the lads to take. And the escape is the water, the swell and the search for the perfect wave. The complexity of the different personalities lends an endearing quality to the whole production and a magnaninous end that leaves you choking for breath. The thumping soundtrack of classic sixties tracks rams it all home of course.Coming forward to present times, it hasn’t gotten any easier. And this wonderful film reminds you that life’s a beach, a VW Camper, a board and beer. Enjoy.
