excellent documentary
4 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is an excellent documentary on the New Zealand film industry - which has sprung from virtual non-existence into international prominence within less than 15 years, with such productions as Jane Campion's "The Piano" and "An Angel at my Table" and Peter Jackson's "Heavenly Creatures" among a number of films that are equally watchable, if less well-known internationally. Not only does Sam Neill provide interesting insights into what drives New Zealand's filmmakers, and the cultural background (or apparent lack of it!) they come from - it is also a brilliant piece of documentary film-making in its own right. Narrated from a very personal perspective, Sam Neill's comments are both witty and insightful, his presentation lively, at times quirky - and the viewer is left with a much better understanding of what it means to make films in this particular place of the world - as well as an increased admiration for the results of that activity!
