Whimsical drama from New Zealand
8 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Something completely different from New Zealand; a cross between "One Flea Over The Cuckoo's Nest" and "Being There" although not as good as either of them but still watchable nonetheless.

Arthur(Rawiri Paratene) lives in a home for the mentally handicapped and he is convinced that he

is the second son of God. Those around him are not quite sure due to his uncanny intuitiveness. By the end of this imaginative film, the audience will also question the sanity of Arthur.

Rawiri Paratene gives a remarkable performance, one of my favorites this year along with Brendan

Gleeson in "The Guard" from Ireland.

The entire cast is very good and the story moves along, straddling the line between comedy and

drama. Writer Mark Riddell keeps us guessing to the end.
