Critic Reviews for The Patriarch (Mahana)
The Patriarch aims for classical screen storytelling, but the result, while entertaining for a time, becomes clunky and predictable, its sentimentality amplified by awkward incorporation of songs into the lush score.
Proudly expands the still-limited canon of essential films about New Zealand's tribal people ...
Director Lee Tamahori teams up with his Once Were Warriors leading man Temuera Morrison for a solid, intense drama about family feud and a domineering dad.
A wonderfully filmed and performed story of family and legacy brought to life through beautiful classic movie strokes.
Though the basic narrative arc is a familiar one, it makes for a mostly rewarding film thanks to its spectacular setting. New Zealand's pastoral vistas are handsomely photographed by Ginny Loane.
