A nice sweet film

This is a nice romantic comedy, nothing special but certainly enjoyable to watch. The two leads are wonderful.

Typical New Zealand stale amateur acting with some reasonable moments shining through.

i would rather watch grass grow...

this film is very slow and does not help nz at all in our film making industrie. i would rather watch grass grow and paint dry than watch this silly asian kiwi love film that is very plain, not in places the whole thing.

nice wee film

As expected, a nice wee film that doesn't have much going on. It falls seriously flat in parts, but has some lovely authentic and fresh moments and some tedious cliches as well. Feels very much like a first film. Hope she keeps making them as talent is there.

Cute Film

Despite not really being a rom-com fan, I liked this film. The idea of family, tradition and cultural clashing interfering in a fledgling relationship as opposed to exes, career or personality problems made this a fun girl-meets-boy film with a difference. Seeing the city illustrated through the whimsical atmosphere of Emily & James' romance was...

A gem and a laugh

Interracial relationships are really well portrayed in this film. He's tall, she's short. They come from different backgrounds but love finds its way into their life and makes everyone happy especially me
