An intense and unforgettable movie experience about a mother's search for her lost son, at a time of wars over land and racial misunderstanding.
27 November 2005 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

The best movie of Vincent Ward's unparalleled 25 year career. To his always uniquely beautiful images (filmed by Alun Bollinger, one of New Zealand's greatest cameramen) he adds an enthralling story not only about a mother's search for her lost son, but also about a time of violence in 19th Century colonial history when Maori and Pakeha were inextricably mixed on both sides of a war about land and racial misunderstanding. Moving performances by the great Maori actors Cliff Curtis and Temuera Morrison and by Samantha Morton. Sensational action sequences should give this epic production the widest appeal to general audiences, as well as providing a huge range of historical topics for further debate.
