Loved it

My brother who was back in NZ after many years overseas and I went to this little gem. We both loved it. I would rate it the best NZ movie I can recall seeing. The acting was wonderful, the humour subtle, and the story full of poignancy. Only a Maori director could have got away with what was portrayed in this film, but it left you thinking about its meanings and messages long after you left the theatre. I do hope a soundtrack is released.
