I recently got to see this movie at the Roxy cinema, re-released after the prints were found again in London. I think the it is rightly called the best NZ film no-one has ever seen. Apparently it had only a short run in 1987 and has only been seen occasionally since then.
I highly recommend this movie. It is beautiful and touching. It shows a an often overlooked minority people in NZ and a small part of their history in NZ with dignity. And we are reminded that these early Chinese immigrants came to NZ expecting so little, but willing to give so much and work hard just to earn something to improve the lives of their families back home.
