The story takes place on a remote island of the coast of New Zealand. However, it was actually filmed in The Caitlins National Park. Which is located on the southern tip of New Zealanda South Island. See more »
This is an interesting story and concept. It is convoluted and difficult to summarise concisely. The story unfolds at an extremely slow rate. So slow that there is an urge to switch off and walk away. But if you stick with it about half way through the movie some twists and turns are exposed and it becomes interesting. Though the pace never improves and the suspenseful aspects are never exploited. The film suddenly ends in very much an anti climatic manner with so many loose ends that it is extremely frustrating. Almost as though the film makers either ran out of time or money or ideas as to how to complete it. Could have been so much better
