An amazing film, which I had seen before viewed on tv in new zealand many years ago and was instantly compelled to add it to my collection once seeing it available on amazon. It is a film about one of new zealand's most famous writers, and the making of her, and her life. She had a most interesting, tragic life, and this film directed by jane campion gives you a feeling of being there, and almost going through what she did. It has amazing scenery and I can honestly say that it is very true to how new zealand is and was in some ways.
A must view, if you are into a real life drama which gives you an insight to a small world far away in the 1940's, as well as a controversial life.
