good film
24 May 2003 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

I found this movie to be a really good and uplifting film. It features a couple on the lam from various unjustices in life during depression-era New Zealand and does a good job in all areas, including character development and good and interesting situations. You might like this film if you can find it. I liked it.
