Hats off for kiwis...

What a lovely film made with the collaboration of Brits and Kiwis. Very unusual essence felt when i watched that very film and i was quite amazed that how Kiwis has proved itself and its cinematic effectiveness to the whole world. I mean what a composition of lovely location with griping story line , best camera , mysterious lightning wonderful photographic shoots taken with the slight touch of smooth veering direction and most of all noticeable acting of all the out sooner underdogs performers of Europe. Little slow(European be like) but soon the film goes by you are not even know you are breathing or no. And most amazing thing is that the topic is quite disturbing but still it does not creates that significant disturbed feeling. A quite must watch film to all the film lovers.

Beautiful Drama, New Zealand style

A rather thought provoking drama, In My Father's Den showcases the acting talents of it's cast perfectly. It also shows that New Zealand's film industry can do more than just quirky comedy, which it does admirably. The whole cast were excellent, but the impact of this piece really depended on the central duo. Matthew Macfadyen, as the out of place and uncomfortable returning escapee Paul, and Emily Barclay, as the insecure but seemingly confident sixteen year old Celia, nail their performances beautifully. These are two very complex individuals who think that they know their stories, and the viewer gets sucked into their self-belief. I loved and hated the two central characters in turn. And then the twist blew my train off the rails.

Touch your heart and still shine

A cloudy sky. Perhaps this is one of those works that take your heart first slowly, then stops force to remove it quickly. If you're here to get drunk you are welcome. You could say that this film brings the fascination and temperance in its first minutes. The story is very well contained as a structural point, the simplicity of approach you and invite you to stroll through your eyes we are delighted to know that this artist thought of as leaving a pain that trains you. New Zealand has a new hero. The mystery leads us to the depths of our emotional supports, to delight and savor every moment without leaving a little. That's when you can not drop anything. And then it happens, knock on the door to say "the world exists and is full of pain". Amazing.
