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 ...
Mahana is a touch simplistic and very romantic. But it does what it does with skill.
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.
Tamahori's meticulous attention to historical detail transports us back to a very specific time and place.
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.
Tamahori's ability to view Aotearoa through the Hollywood lens is unequaled. With Mahana he's made another, if somewhat gentler, classic.
A sweeping, affectionately grandiose folk epic, The Patriarch brings Tamahori back to his roots.
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.
