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
another great kiwi film, how do they do it?? a small country with not a big budget for films even after lotr and peter jackson.
No.2 is rich story telling, beautifully flawed relationships, raw and real, funny and cheeky.
new zealand film makers have set such high standards in telling their stories, i have yet to see it trickle through to Australian film making
although australians are good at making Hollywood movies- but movies
that capture the worlds attention and respect far and few between. like once were warriors couldn't be copied and wasn't from kiwi genre point of view neither should the castle and its characters be rewrote and reworked and remade over and over. let the writers write- not all writers should have to direct to see their work made with integrity.
see this movie- No.2
