"The movie reviewers slammed it -well they were wrong!"
5 stars"

Another outstanding Kiwi movie with a strong story about family personalities, power v's strength and standing up for what you believe in. Beautiful setting, a fun car race to start the movie off with, believable characters, great cinematography, awesome actors – especially the young male lead. If you love Kiwi movies, or just a great yarn, then this is a must watch.

Another hugely successful film from Temuera Morrison. Just loved his interpretation of Witi Ihimara's book Bulibasha

Description

In the 1960s on the east coast of New Zealand, two Maori sheep-shearing families – the Mahanas and the Poatas – are longstanding enemies and commercial rivals. 14-year-old Simeon Mahana, the youngest son, is in conflict with his traditionalist grandfather, Tamihana. As Simeon unravels the truth behind the longstanding family vendetta, he risks not just his own future prospects, but the cohesion of the entire tight-knit society.

Reviews

“This is proudly a Maori story with a Maori denouement, and it's a fitting reminder of the important place Ihimaera occupies in our national literature.” – NZ Herald

“Tamahori's a­bility to view Aotearoa through the Hollywood lens is unequaled. With Mahana he's made another, if somewhat gentler, classic.” – Flicks.co.nz

“One consistent is the sweet, tenderness on show, diluting the more severe, poignant aspects with a geniality that ensures this remains an undemanding, entertaining piece of cinema.” – HeyUGuys
