Critical response
“This rare insight into the mind of the man who gave us our most famous building was made possible by the determination of two Australian filmmakers who run an independent outfit called Film Art Doco…The resulting film is a fascinating examination of the design of the Opera House as well as the politics of the time.”
The Australian

“This excellent documentary…illuminating stuff”
The Age Green Guide

The Edge of the Possible is something you should try not to miss…This film by Daryl Dellora and Sue Maslin provides many fine images of Bennelong Point…The coup is the long interview with Utzon…Of chief interest here are the detailed models of [Utzon’s never realised] interiors…They have not been seen on television before and are breathtaking.”
