Whale Rider

Whale Rider

On the east coast of New Zealand, the Whangara people believe their presence there dates back a thousand years or more to a single ancestor, Paikea, who escaped death when his canoe capsized by riding to shore on the back of a whale. From then on, Whangara chiefs, always the first-born, always male, have been considered Paikea's direct descendants. Pai, an 11-year-old girl in a patriarchal New Zealand tribe, believes she is destined to be the new chief. But her grandfather Koro is bound by tradition to pick a male leader. Pai loves Koro more than anyone in the world, but she must fight him and a thousand years of tradition to fulfill her destiny.

The film tells a contemporary story of love, rejection and triumph as a young Maori girl fights to fulfill a destiny her grandfather refuses to recognize, the destiny of becoming the chief of her people. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Aaron V (fr) wrote: Anchorman 2 is hilarious on all levels. This film is diehard funny. This film is a perfect follow-up to the original 2004 film. The film combines the best comedy that you can think of. And with the comedy genius of Will Ferrell, what could possibly go wrong. Nothing. The film is truly funny. This film looks like the sequel that one looks funny, but would get a bad rotten score on rotten tomatoes. But according to this website the film got a 75% rating on rotten tomatoes. And it got a certified fresh also. Anchorman 2 is a hilarious follow-up to the original 2004 film.

Zachary M (jp) wrote: Over the years, I've tried watching this movie twice. When I was a lot younger I managed through all of it and thought it was awful. So years later I wanted to see if my opinion had changed any, it hadn't. And yet, I still can't exactly pinpoint why I dislike it so much. It's not too different from the other horror slasher movies I love, and the acting is actually really good throughout most of it. So why do I dislike it so?I still don't have a definitive answer, but I have a theory. The film seems to fail to build any kind of real tension. The violence isn't an issue and the plot, which is based on a true story, is a good one to make this kind of a movie off of it. Yet nothing about it is endearing enough to make me ever care to see it in full again. Go figure.

Matt C (ca) wrote: This is an interesting French film which takes a look at a family and their ordinary yet unique problems. It's about a woman who lives with her dad who's a famous writer. His condescending and cynical attitude has affected her to the point that she retains no self-esteem and becomes even more cynical than her father. She's used by just about everyone just so they can meet her famous father. His ego shatters relationships around him and the woman realizes how similar she is to her father and finds someone to love her for who she is. This is a well-written and realistic film and it's worth a watch.

Joel A (kr) wrote: What nice little family film this was, the film was actually really good. Michael J Fox and Christina Vidal (the kid he was representing) were fantastic. It had all the right elements of a great family film, it had the comedy, snappy story and alot of heart to it. The kids that where filled the scenes where really funny, some where a little bit to odd. A real likeable story with interesting characters, a must see family film that has a lot going for it....
