Whale Rider | August 20, 2003

On the subject of whales and the antipodes, if you only see one whale based film from New Zealand this year, I'd highly recommend Whale Rider. Set in a small costal community in New Zealand, it's a lovely movie about family, tradition and the Maori culture. The acting is superb, the cinematography beautiful and the story enchanting. It's no wonder people have been throwing awards at this movie. Well worth the price of the ticket!

Oh, and despite the really poor nav, the website is rather nice too!

“the website is rather nice too!”

frames + flash != nice web site ;)

Well I didn’t notice the frameset, but despite being into my web standards am also a big fan of Flash, if used sensibly of course. The main thing i like about the site is the lovely atmospheric images that really give an insight into the quality of the film.

However the nav really does suck.
