A man and woman are shown in bed two times together. It is implied that they are unmarried and have just had sex. The man is bare-chested. In one of these scenes, the woman gets out of bed and the viewer can see that she is also bare-chested (there is a very brief view of the side of her breast as she gets up).
Some scenes of girls dressing in turn of the century style clothing.


Two men have sexual themed discussions about teenage girls. No explicit language or graphic descriptions merely appreciating the girls beauty.
A reference is made by a girl to seeing one of the teachers in her underwear.
A doctor who examined one of the girls says that she was “intact” (unbroken hymen) implying that he believed that she was never sexually assaulted.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


Reminiscence of the past?? I don’t think such a sketch can carry such a huge theme. “Picnic at Hanging Rock” is just a beautiful sketch.

Where are the three missing people?? In fact, there are countless hints from the beginning of the film, indicating that this is a landslide (or similar natural disaster).

Clue 1: frightened birds. When Miranda and her party first arrived at the foot of the mountain, the beautiful lens suddenly changed and switched to the disturbing flock of birds. I remember it took about 10 seconds. What does this mean? Animals perceive danger? Behind beauty, there is a potential danger. Although I don’t know what it will be. But the animals that followed had similar restlessness.

Clue 2: Edith is a contradictory person. After the tragedy, Edith pretended not to remember anything. But when looking for Miranda’s party on the mountain, I accidentally saw the missing teacher running up the mountain and dressed funny. In addition, Edith saw a red cloud. A red cloud? What do you think? By the way, Australian clay. Maybe it’s a large area of red dust caused by a rock falling on the ground during a landslide.

Edith didn’t tell the whole story truthfully, but chose the part that she thought was interesting. The French female teacher is actually suspicious, just as she slapped Edith in a hurry at the end of the film and said she was liar. Of course, the French teacher had no direct evidence that she was lying, which was a guess in her heart.

Finally, since Edith was lying, why did he ask what happened in front of the survivors? Isn’t Edith afraid of being exposed? No, we can see this as a sign of guilt. Eager to know whether the survivors really lost their memory (it turned out that IRMA really forgot), so as not to harm themselves.

Clue 3: Edith’s hallucination. When people are confused, many things are not so true. For example, three girls seem to be controlled by some mysterious force and walk up the mountain. All these should be understood as Edith’s untrue feelings, or simply as Edith’s lying. There are no such things at all.

Clue 4: the old man’s telescope. You should remember that there was a scene for an old man. He was looking at a crack in the mountain. The scene stopped for some time. How did it make you feel? It gives me the feeling that the girls are there, or similar places!! They are trapped by stones!! This is a very obvious hint!

Clue 5: what exactly did Michael see? According to the plot behind the film, Michael climbed the stone to see IRMA. But why not save her? Instead, holding a piece of cloth from the girl’s clothes? That’s because he saw the dead Miranda when he climbed up rock. My guess is that Michael climbed up rock alone and found a stone blocking the intersection. He suspected Miranda that they were behind the stone. He struggled to remove the stone (corresponding to why he was panting behind him), found IRMA and lay on the ground unharmed. At the same time, it was found that a corner of Miranda’s clothes was exposed outside another stone (Miranda was crushed to death). He tore off the rag sadly, took it in his hand, and sat where he came until someone found him. Later, because he couldn’t let go of it, he never mentioned what he saw on the mountain. And IRMA happened to have really lost her memory.

Clue 6: title. Let’s take a closer look at the title, hanging rock. Hanging rock, which literally means “hanging stone”. As Miranda said when they came to rock, “everything begins and ends at the exactly right time and place.” The hanging rock fell at the exactly right time and place “The landslide, the stone fell down, and then~~~

Clue 7: Teacher’s insight. In the play on the carriage, the teacher talked about her understanding of rock and showed her rich geological knowledge. Before the landslide, the teacher seemed suddenly alert. I speculate that she was aware of the possible disaster with her professional geological knowledge. Therefore, I went up the mountain alone to find the students, but I was trapped by stones (or died directly). The landslide was so short that none of the students sleeping at the foot of the mountain heard it.

Well, the above is my personal speculation. There are inevitable loopholes. Please correct them.

The reason why I wrote this film review is that for such a delicate and beautiful sketch, many people put on a disproportionate huge theme, which is really a misinterpretation of an excellent work. In fact, many works do not need to deliberately contact the so-called background of the times. They are all things that teachers deceive students in school. To truly understand a work, in fact, you only need to look at it with your heart, feel it, and restore its true original appearance.
