Trivia

Vincent Ward went to great lengths to obtain the opening and closing shots of diary pages in water, filming them by himself waist-deep in the River Thames in London during post-production. See more »

Goofs

In one part of the film where the camera pans along the river, there is a distinct sound of a Kea- these are alpine parrots which do not inhabit the Whanganui region now and most probably didn't then either. See more »

Fantastic...photo.
10 March 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Nothing short of a masterpiece when it comes to scenery and photo. Not so much the film it self. The editing is really poor, and the script is copied from the movie "Braveheart" But the photo..! Filminglocation is "LOTR-country" in daytime-mode, which is quit proper for this movie. It makes it easy to get those magnificent scenes. Maori-conflicts whit intruding westerners are not rare in films, but this one has an unique touch to it. It takes place in the 19'th century, and feels genuine at first glance. Troubles comes first in editing, and I cant help thinking this movie deserves a better editing some day. This movie on 1080-upscaling is a wet dream for those who rate a movie by its appearance. Those of us who doesn't can still appreciate it thanks to just that.
