    Hey, where have you been, that film is YEARS old!! Good, yes, but why mention it now?? Just seen it??

    BTW things have changed somewhat since the film was made, such as a re-think of the Waitangi Treaty since the Labour Gov of Helen Clark took power.

    Saw it a couple of years ago when a friend was telling me about how good New Zealand was. I commented that it really looked a lot like Ireland, violence and all. They were most perturbed…
