Any favourite New Zealand films

Does anyone have a favourite NZ film? Mine is Boy and I also loved In My Father's Den. I haven't seen that many NZ movies though. Does anyone have any good recommendations?



I loved boy too, our family was growing up in the same era , the clothes, toys etc, bought it all back, was well made and a real feel good film.I still like An Angel at my table. Billy T James in Came a hot Friday(another one that portrayed NZ life pretty accurately). Second Hand Wedding and End of the golden summer are another two i enjoyed, there's more but the names elude me for now.


Thanks Rose, I am going to try find some of these films. Thank you for the recommendations!



BOY and WHALE RIDER must surely feature in your list of top NZ films?



I really enjoyed Out of the Blue, I didn't have any expectations going in but I was riveted.



Whale Rider was diffently my favourite. Keisha Castle Hughes is such a good actress, she is so real and talented



goodbye pork pie. classic.
smash palace. great.
once were warriors. realistic docu-drama.

also on my list are, - came a hot Friday, utu, boy.



Whale Rider & Once Were Warriors are movies I could keep watching for years to come. NZers have actually put out some critically acclaimed movies like Piano and The Lord of the Rings Movies.



Eagle Vs Shark is my Favourite NZ Movie , it's very funny although I know probably not everyones cup of tea. But it's mine :)



BOY... it is really entertaining, witty, humourous, and wholesome... and awesome.... have to see it from time to time, and still loving it!



Boy :-)
