A privileged British family consisting of a mother, a geologist father and an adolescent daughter and son, live in Sydney, Australia. Out of circumstance, the siblings, not knowing exactly where they are, get stranded in the Outback by themselves while on a picnic. They only have with them the clothes on their backs - their school uniforms - some meagre rations of nonperishable food, a battery-powered transistor radio, the son's satchel primarily containing his toys, and a small piece of cloth they used as their picnic drop-cloth. While they walk through the Outback, sometimes looking as though near death, they come across an Australian boy who is on his walkabout, a rite of passage into manhood where he spends months on end on his own living off the land. Their largest problem is not being able to verbally communicate. The boy does help them to survive, but doesn't understand their need to return to civilization, which may or may not happen based on what the Australian boy ends up doing. - IMDb

Фильм, в котором главные роли исполняют Эгаттер и Джон, как сестра и брат, брошенные в безлюдном месте их отцом, который сходит с ума и убивает себя. Имея при себе только транзистор, дети бродяжничают по пустырям с небольшой надеждой на спасение. В один прекрасный день молодой абориген, Галпилил, находит их и показывает, как выжить в пустыне. Между Галпили и Эгаттер возникает сексуальное влечение, и белая девочка даже поощряет добиваться ее. Однажды ночью Галпилил исполняет для нее странный ритуальный танец спаривания, но она отвергает его; на следующее утро она и ее брат находят аборигена мертвым - очевидное самоубийство. В конце концов, дети возвращаются в цивилизацию. Рассказ двусмысленен и полон аллегорий, визуальные образы потрясают воображение, а музыкальное сопровождение Бэрри прекрасно и завораживает.

Walkabout was filmed in remote locations across the Australian outback in the summer of 1969.
Although Girl is 14-years-old in the movie. Jenny Agutter was 16-years-old when the film was in production.
Jenny Agutter was embarrassed when doing the scene of her swimming naked in the lake, so as many as possible of the crew were sent away. When shooting was done they returned, stripped naked, and went for a swim.
(https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067959/trivia)

"Nic wanted the scene in which I swam naked to be straightforward. He wanted me to be uninhibited – which I wasn’t. I was a very inhibited young woman. I didn’t feel uncomfortable about the intention of the scene, but that doesn’t make you feel any better. There was no one around, apart from Nic in the distance with his camera. No lights, nothing. Once he’d got the shot, I got out of the water and dressed as quickly as possible. I don’t think people were as obsessed with nudity back then as they are today."

A well made drama. It is a shame that Luc Roeg did not further pursue his acting career.
