Entertaining, funny and warmly-human movie
5 December 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My friends all rave about this film; being of a contrary-nature l often find such enthusiastic recommendations rather a put-off, but l have to admit it's really entertaining, funny and warmly-human.

Made on a shoestring, it looks a little rough around the edges at times, but the performances are all perfect, especially Rawiri Paratene ("Whalerider) as the central character.

Its a New Zealand film, with some great insights into Maori culture, but the theme, the setting and the humour are universal.

Don't get put off by the 'mental illness' tag - its a really entertaining film that left even this grumpy old man leaving the cinema with a spring in his step.
