Living in Mt. Roskill, Auckland, Nana Maria struggles to get her grandchildren together for a traditional Fijian feast in which she means to name her successor as Matriarch. Film runs over about a 18 hour or so period of time. Written by
This is quite possibly the worst NZ film I have ever seen... I am all for supporting NZ film industry, but I have not felt so let down by a feature before. The acting was mediocre, the story line was all but non existent and it only saving grace was the song... and we didn't even hear all of that!!! Technically, the film was fine, good cinematography and great on location shots, but the lack of storyline just made all the good things fade. The star of the show was definitely "Crispy", although we thought the body double used for "Crispy-Crispy" was a little heavy set! Harsh I know, but I think fair! Sorry Toa... but you'll have to do better than that!
