Aro Favourite Utu


New Zealand 1983, 115 minutes
Dir. Geoff Murphy
In English, Te Reo
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Action/Adventure / Western

Topics: Indigenous & Minority Cultures.


Aroview: After the great success of GOODBYE PORK PIE, dir. Geoff Murphy and his team get their fingernails dirty with this indigenous 'Western' that addresses a turbulent period in our history - circa 1870 - where vast casualties were suffered both by the native Maori and British colonialists in the name of 'utu' (revenge). Convincingly mounted and well sustained, it pays off its ambitions as both drama and spectacle.
