5.0 out of 5 stars We are everywhere June 1 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Excellent portrayal of an issue that any gay male has when realizing that he is living a lie and living a life that is expected of him from parents, peers, etc. Set in New Zealand just also emphasizes that coming out happens not jut in white main stream but all over the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful film that speaks to a trueth June 21 2012
By fuzzy123 - Published on Amazon.com

This film is a 'comeing out' story of a married man that shows his progress from a life of desperite missery and lies to one of courage and honesty--and how this is not an easy road to travel.

A small budget film, it is beautifully directed, writen, acted, and filmed. The actors performances so on spot that that you can forget that your watching a 'performance' and start to feel that your watching real events from a fly on the wall perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful film and story! Feb. 3 2014
By Clayton - Published on Amazon.com

I still can't get over what a 'find' this film was. I've never been to New Zealand, and the beautiful cities and seascapes alone were enough to give this film five stars! The story line was educational. I later did some research to better understand the Moari people. That info would have been helpful before watching the film actually. That added layer of obligation, and duty to his sense of origin would have made some parts of the movie easier to track. While they did offer us some subtitles during more intimate tribal converstaions there were still words used that made no sense to a yankee like me. The other thing I enjoy about foreign films is that they don't always tie everything up in a beautiful Tiffany box and bow. This movie is no exception. Life doesn't resolve itself in 2 hours. The movie challenged it's viewers to think about life choices, desires, and the realtiies of following your heart.

Great movie with a familiar story line but a different culture and country. Enjoyed learning about the New Zealand culture and attitude towards homosexuality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but sad Jan. 9 2014
By Nolan - Published on Amazon.com
Kawa's predicament is something not as uncommon as "moralists" think. People try so hard to live up to the expectations of their society, but quite often they struggle with being true to themselves. Excellent story, sad drama, especially since children and people who love Kawa so very much were involved.
