Golden history of a nation
22 February 2004 | by (Auckland) – See all my reviews

This film has affected me like no others, it felt like a true depiction of a forgotten episode of New Zealand's history. I'm no historian so I don't know how accurate the story is, but what a bittersweet movie it is. Is today more rascist or the one in this movie being set in a Chinese mining camp in Otago in the late 1800's? The beauty though pervades in the central Chinese characters attitudes and philosophy.

One of my favourite New Zealand movies.
