The Last Wave

Black Rain (USA)
La dernière vague (Fr)

1977

Peter Weir
Director

while a school of a small outback town is bombarded by huge hailstones and unusual rainstorms fall on Sydney, an aborigine dies in mysterious circumstances near a pub. David Burton (Richard Chamberlain), a well-to-do corporate lawyer, is assigned to defend the group of 5 Aborigines involved in the murder. He suspects the victim has been killed for violating a tribal taboo, but the defendants deny any tribal association. Burton, plagued by apocalyptic visions of water, slowly realizes his own involvement with the aborigines...and their prophecies !!
