A sweet and lovely film about Fijians and other islanders in Aotearoa.
Some awkward scenes don't work, and the Christian message is a bit odious, but I really quite enjoyed myself otherwise. The women are marvellous, especially Blake and Novotny, and the final shot is extraordinary.
Not as powerful as some other NZ connected movies but a nice gang hanging around...
This was a first for me. I'm not used to this type of cultural films. This posed a very authentic family with very real characters that people can see today and relate to. I'd say this is a good movie with good intentions. Just that being a first for me, it was like I got hit by a bus. I had to get used to it. The start might hit you hard but the end would leave you satisfied.
A life in the day of a family. And indeed a quite chaotic one - the life as well as the day as well as the family. Nothing really spectacular is happening; however, Toa Fraser and the actors of this movie draw you inside and in the end you feel like you have known all those different and often difficult characters for quite a while.
loved it coz it has fijian cultures in it
Movies based on plays which do not expand beyond the space-confined, actor-centric, spontenaity-fuelled canvas of the original work are a dangerous breed and none, more-so, than this film. This film suffers horribly from transitioning to the big screen where so much of the plot's dynamics that effect magic on a stage become humdrum, cliche, indie-film-fodder with no drive, no ambition, no magic and - often - no real direction or sense. Taungaroa Emile is the real star of the film while everyone, including top-billing star Ruby Dee, present the most unrealistic and inaccurate portrayals of Fijians I've ever seen (though Tanea Heke is a fantastic exception). Pained, tiresome, lumbering snooze-fest that no amount of charm (or its acceptable third act) can save and highly suspect cultural research to boot. No thanks, this is just more forgettable New Zealand art fluff with no market and no hope.
An very warm and pleasant film to watch. Great cast. Ruby Dee makes a great matriarch.
OK movie, captures all the parts of the family life.
