Aro Favourite Once Were Warriors

 

New Zealand 1994, 105 minutes
Dir. Lee Tamahori
Rating: [R]
Genres: Drama

Topics: Indigenous & Race Relations.

 

Aroview: As sensational as it is important, this managed to transform a relentlessly down-beat novel into a slick, highly digestible commodity without compromising its integrity, then went on to become a box-office champ. Exceptional performances, direction and script combine to deliver a film of enormous potency.
