An excellent history of New Zealand cinema
28 December 1999 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

I saw "Cinema of Unease" in 1997 at the Austin Film Festival. Sam Neill gives a very personable narration of the evolution of the New Zealand film industry. Much of the documentary focuses on the evolution of the New Zealand film industry with glimpses into the native films "An Angel at My Table", "Heavenly Creatures" and "The Piano". (I was compelled to view each of these films on video after I watched "Unease".) "Unease" originates from the Kiwis' penchant with such dark, unfashionable themes such as the dysfunctional family, puberty, and the occasional patricide. Mr. Neill tells of his coming of age as an actor in Christchurch and his analysis of future trends in New Zealand cinema. For anyone interested in a glimpse into the culture of the other "land downunder", you must see this film.
