"Ignoring the racism and it becomes a serious analogy"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

We bought this and the sequel for an exchange student from Italy as he was so taken by the depth in the story.

Description

Based on Alan Duff's controversial best-seller, Once Were Warriors is an intense powerhouse film that will leave you stunned by it's uncompromising insight into the strength of one woman who has to save her children from the man she loves.

Eighteen years after Jake (Temuera Morrison) and Beth (Rena Owen) married, it's easy to see why she found him so irresistible. Jake is muscular and handsome, he exudes an explosive sexual energy, even now, after 5 children, he can still arouse her with one look, but Jake too often proves his masculinity with his fists. He regularly explodes into violence that threatens to destroy Beth and their family - til it's almost too late.
