Real life stuff, unfortunately for some
28 June 2013 | by (Wellington) – See all my reviews

This is no fairy tail.

It was a well made film about the unfortunately real life of some families in the 80s in NEw Zealand.

It's hard to believe its was made in 2013, it really looks like a 80s film.

The film seems to be set in Paekakariki near Wellington.

There is some funny stuff in there, but some violence.

However, again this is real life.

I wonder what happened to the father.

My favourite line relates to a pet fly.

Well worth a look.
