The year of 1997 was a prolific year for Russell Crowe as far as movie releases: Rough Magic, Breaking Up, and the critically acclaimed L.A. Confidential. Another was released on the sixth of November – Heaven’s Burning.
The road trip story and romance of an on-the-run Australian getaway driver and the Japanese runaway bride was the last Australian film featuring Crowe until 2014’s The Water Diviner.
Directed by Craig Lahiff, the movie also starred Youki Kudoh as Midori Takada; Kenji Isomura, Ray Barrett, Robert Mammone, Petru Gheorghiu, and Men At Work‘s Colin Hay.
