This was a vety confronting movie about domestic violoence which can happen in all walks of life. I was drqwn into all the family members that were dealing wih the conflict.Even though the story was depressing I was encouraged by the hopeful end when the woman had the courage to leave her husband, The acting was brillaiant by all cast members.This was not a movie I would have chosen but was one my daughter had to watch for Film Stuidies at university
Extremely violent and depressing depiction of Maori life. Maybe reality but harrowing to watch.
is there another movie to this one?
this was chosen by my 17yr old son.. he had seen it b4 but was younger.. he really loves it.. not 1 that i enjoyed as i dont like seeing guys hitting women etc..
great movie for adults. one off my fave.
One of the most confronting films that I have watched. I thought the story, the casting, and the hopeful ending were all brilliant.
Absolutely stunning movie from New Zealand. Rather violent
Had seen it before many years ago but the teenage girl of the house hadn't and was equally affected by its power, violence and, ulitmately, courage. Morrison is incredibly scary as Jake, but still manages to get you with the underlying charm that captured Beth for so long. A must see.
Absolutely stunning but very violent movie about natives of New Zealand living in today's Aukland. Riveting performances from Rena Owen
Brilliant but very disturbing movie. It is a must watch
Gutsy movie and great acting. Maybe a bit overdone but the humanity and the reality shine through. Should be in every high school curriculum.
Powerful movie. A must see.
awesome movie absolutely awesome!
Ya gotta see this.
Great movie. A real eye opener.
