      Rob Aldam Backseat Mafia A powerful ‘home’ drama which addresses a number of prejudices and post-war sentiments Jun 29, 2022 Full Review Josephine O'Neill Daily Telegraph (Australia) Basil Dearden's plain, modulated direction, which leaves a doubt even in the happy ending... is exactly right for such a story. Apr 11, 2019 Full Review MFB Critics Monthly Film Bulletin This is a realistic, tense and well-acted film. Its approach is intelligent and straightforward and the direction is sensitive.
