Trivia

To propel the miniature train used for the crash scene, the train was connected by wires running down the tracks to the rear rims of a Ford Falcon on jacks. When the car accelerated, the wire would wind around the rims and pull the train. See more »

Truly Amazing - Should win the best NZ film of the year
1 October 2011 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I have just watched the DVD of this film, and I am sitting here completely blown away. My emotions have gone on a huge ride, sheer joy, crying my eyes out - it was truly amazing. I so want to buy this film and add it to my collection.

Lippy Pictures - you have done an amazing job. Well done! Together with Weta Pictures who did an amazing job with the miniature scenes, you have created a truly brilliant piece of New Zealand cinema.

All the actors were brilliant. Granted, this is a film, not a documentary. Some licence was taken. But they did a most sensitive job of portraying one real story that changed New Zealand and showed incredible valour on behalf of the main male character, a New Zealand cricketer who has to leave his fiancé behind.

All kiwis should see this film. I also think it's got incredible interest to people around the world.
