form y separately published work icon The Illustrated Family Doctor David Snell , ( dir. Kriv Stenders ) Australia : Pod Films , 2005 Z1180463 2005 single work film/TV

'THE ILLUSTRATED FAMILY DOCTOR, based on the novel by David Snell, is a dark and irreverent comedy about illness, work, death and a young man who learns to survive it all. It is a modern fable that looks at what holds us together when everything else is falling apart.'

Notes

  • Dedication: For Ron, my father
  • Epigraph: I am an ephemeral and a not too discontented citizen of a metropolis considered modern because all known taste has been evaded in the furnishings and the exterior of the houses as in the layout of the city. Arthur Rimbaud, from Illuminations.

    'Hollis seems to think you're an innocent man.' 'Well, I've been accused of a lot of things before, Mrs Mulray, but never that.' from Polanski's Chinatown.
