An exceptional movie on many levels!
26 July 2010 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

An exceptional story is one that captures the audience from the start."The Hopes and Dreams of Gazza Snell" breaks into full-speed action and within minutes our hearts are pounding and we are left gasping for breath. It is a classic suburban kiwi drama dealing with deep personal issues,unfulfilled dreams,marriage crisis and most importantly family love. Highlights for me were the heartfelt scenes between father and son, the humorous bill-board scene and the beautiful and clever symbolism in the shots of the boys swimming in the water tank. This film will capture your heart and leave you with something to think about for days. Congratualtions!
