One of the Best.
15 April 2004 | by (Christchurch, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is a beautifully lush story set in a very exciting time in New Zealand history. As the colonisation of New Zealand begins two cultures struggle to find their place in the new world. It has war and romance and well rounded characters. The beautiful landscape is wonderful to watch but it is the stories that are the star of this series. There are also wonderful performances from the actors involved. Simone Kessell, George Henare, Andy Anderson and Elizabeth Hawthorne don't let the New Zealand audience down as we are used to great performances from them. Richard Coyle and Matthew Rhys add weight to this fabulous cast and enhance the enjoyment of the story. I loved it. Another excellent example of kiwi filmic talent as well as telling a truly New Zealand story.
