Lovely, funny and touching
26 February 2011 | by sally-wSee all my reviews

Rhys Darby (the kiwi) and Sally Hawkins (English and in Made in Dagenham) are excellent. A great kiwi movie. Bryan Brown is Australian and so good as the eccentric. Faye Smythe as Alison is convincing.

Some hilarious kiwi funny moments and some lovely scenes if a bit cheesy. Go and see it it is so good and engrossing.

Don't be put off by the shorts they don't do it justice - they make it look like it is one huge cliché and it isn't.

Filmed around some scenic spots of Auckland. Some of these have the makings of a backdrop that will become as recognisable as Sydney harbour. If you know Auckland at all you will enjoy picking where the movie was filmed.
