Kiwi film.. loved it.. Good on ya mate
29 July 2010 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

A touching story that explores the effects of one man's obsession to see his kids excel in something he didn't quite achieve himself. A classic case of a father living vicariously through his sons exploits on the cart racing track.

The story races into life with an intense scene of high speed carting that will set the blood pumping in anyone in the audience with a pulse. The story enters a sobering state when one of the sons enters a coma after a dramatic crash. Gazza is forced to confront both his own priorities and those of his family as they wrestle with the prospect of their son and brother possibly not sharing their lives any longer.

The plot is well assembled, the script not at all forced or contrived. The characters are highly believable and the story also explores some of the cosmopolitan melding that is under way in modern New Zealand.

All told a great film, exhilarating with poignant moments. Highly recommended.
