Celebrate the Original with a classic hit!

“The New Zealand Tourist Board must have been thrilled with this lovely looking culture-fest, jam-packed as it is with stunning coastal views, glorious sunshine and rare insights into Maori culture.
“It sensitively explores the relationship between set-in-his-ways Koro and his eager-to-please granddaughter, whose adoration for him is harshly countered by his bitter disappointment with her.
“As she's a girl, Pai (expertly played by Castle-Hughes) can't lead the tribe, so Koro's obsession with tradition sees him force a local crew of unsuitable lads into classes in the 'old ways.' As he trains them in the art of being a warrior, Koro hopes that the new chief he so desires will reveal himself. But only Pai has the skills he's looking for.

“Way more than just a Maori history class, the overriding feeling here is one of great enjoyment.” - Empire
