>From the award-winning director of Innocence comes this heart-warming romantic comedy that won numerous awards including the AFI for Best Film.

The New York Times called director Paul Cox "a bright new film-making talent" for this enchanting story - co-written with John Clarke (The Games) - of unsung hero Peter, a piano tuner, loner and kleptomaniac whose toupee only fools the man underneath.

Peter (Norman Kaye) still lives with his mother, but when she dies he desperately visits a dating service and meets Patricia (brilliantly played by Wendy Hughes) in the year before her break-out role in Careful He Might Hear You, a painfully shy woman who has just moved into her own apartment. From the excruciating first date at a geriatric bingo game to an intimate evening that ends in tears, these lonely hearts soon stumble awkwardly into love.
