Amazingly great NZ film
10 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was at the premier of this film out in the open air on Auckland's harbor...NZ's Prime Minister was there as she is a great supporter of the arts...I might add unannounced at first. This film can all remind us of someone(s) in our family and is a "feel good" in the end. Way to go NZ and I hope this film does a great showing worldwide...and no I am not from NZ...Canada! The way this country(NZ) has evolved into a great wealth of artistic talent speaks volume for its people and its isolation geographically. Must say I am most impressed with this film...was't sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised...GO SEE IT!
