An intimate story set during the 1860s in which a young Irish woman Sarah and her family find themselves on both sides of the turbulent wars between British and Maori during the British colonization of New Zealand.
A very pleasant surprise. I caught the trailer awhile ago and thought that this film looked good. Poor reviews put me off and I only recently saw it on video. It was very entertaining and far better than most of the dross that the revived UK film industry is churning out. It is very dark in its humour and all the performances are good, especially Addy who is excellent as the lying nobody who takes on the job as hitman. Well worth ninety minutes of your time if you appreciate harsh,dramatic comedy. Fans of "Maybe baby" steer clear!
