a fine film an overlooked author and a director of real genius
23 January 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The most warming thing about reading the other comments was that the authors referred to the New Zealand quality of the story and the characters. New Zealand is like so many places on earth, yet it is unique, there are many places of which NZ reminds me, but not one place on earth that I have seen visited or lived in, has ever reminded me of NZ.

Mune is not only passionate about NZ and its place in the world of the arts, he is one of the most theatrically minded and astute artists I have ever known. Not only a very fine actor, he also writes directs and mentors.

Bruce Mason was one of New Zealand's most important play-writes and IMHO the most deeply connected and spiritual commentator on New Zealand's social and deep seated development as a nation. A view drawn almost entirely from the soul of its people.

This film gives everyone the opportunity to experience the combined work of one of the nations greatest writers/play-writes in Mason, and one of its great directors as well as its greatest theatrical commentator in Mune.

Treat this film like a true friend and take Polonious' advice, "grapple(it)to thy soul with hoops of steel".
