This is an upsetting movie about Maori culture. I only tried to learn a bit about the Maoris after I saw The Piano. So far, in this film, we've got wife beating and alcoholism, and the lead character looks a lot like my, I-wish-he-were-my, ex. The movie is very realistic and tough. I never knew that Maori gang members tattoo their faces in stages according to their status in the gang.
God how I love movies, movie making, and directing. When am I going to get out of this maze and do my right work?
