The best from New Zealand
22 March 2001 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

NZ and Australia always had some good directors and actors, in the 90's we've seen some great movies from the middle of the Pacific Ocean such as "Braindead", "The Ugly", "Once Were Warriors" and it's sequel "What Becames of the Broken Hearted", from this director "Topless Women Talk about their Lives" with Danielle Cormack that also was in the Australian "Siam Sunset" and in "Channelling Baby". "The Price of Milk" is, along with "The Irrefutable Truth" about Demons an introduction to the new cinema from outside the great markets (or should I say market?). This movie is "a modern fairy-tale" that tells the strange love story of two normal persons that almost lose their mental sanity while trying not to lose their love (and their cows and the blanket). It's a hard movie, not very easy to understand for normal people, but very appreciated by the critics. I recommended this movie to almost everybody I knew that know how to appreciate a movie. And I also recommend it to all of you. And get ready... Peter Jackson and Karl Urban will be back in Lord of the Rings!
