Did You Know?


The film, which involves the (fictional) murder of a young girl in a small New Zealand town, became the subject of some controversy when extra Steven Williams was convicted of the real-life murder of his own step-daughter. Calls from the victim's family to censor Williams' brief appearance in the film were turned down by the producers on economic grounds. Some New Zealand DVD retailers refused to stock the DVD as a consequence. See more »

an excruciating bore......
1 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

Cheap-jack psychological drama from New Zealand will test the patience of most film viewers. The script - surrounding a young woman's interaction with a jailed child killer in the form of taped interviews - is woefully amateurish and delivered with all the conviction of a high school acting class. The feeble attempt at social insight into the psyche of a killer and the impact on family victims is eroded away by poor acting, limp pacing and stunningly uncreative and inept direction. An excruciating bore that explodes in the final scenes with an utterly predictable burst of violence. Credit goes the composer of the gloomy soundtrack who offers the only inkling of talent here.
