Aro Recommended Desperate Remedies


New Zealand 1993, 92 minutes
Dir. Peter Wells, Stewart Main
Rating: [M]
Genres: Comedy, Drama / LGBT

Topics: Period - 1800s.


Aroview: An audacious, decadent soap-opera which proudly flaunts its contempt for traditional local film-making with drugs, kinky sex, prostitution, jealously, bribery etc, all rearing their dubious heads from under a shroud of luxuriant costumes and set design.

NZ International Film Festival 1993
Adopt-a-Movie Kindly Adopted by Andrew Tavendale
