A MAORI MASTERPIECE.,
This review is from: Whale Rider [DVD]  (DVD)
I come from Aotearoa (new zealand) and though i am from white descendents i have always felt close to Maori people. As my spiritual path has opened up over the years every time i go back to Aotearoa i feel more and more connection with Maori life, and it is so nice to see the Maori culture growing and the people softening as their faith is slowly coming back. This movie is such a beautiful representation of that spiritual growth.
If you really want to get a taste of Aotearoa and its long term inhabitants and not some Bunjy jumping package tour this movie captures the mystical calling of the land and the Maori connection with it.
You will be a better person for watching this journey.
10 out of 10.
