Memory and Desire


New Zealand 1998, 89 minutes
Dir. Niki Caro
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Drama

Topics: Arthouse.


Aroview: Director Niki Caro pulls out the art-house stops for her feature debut: a love-story about a mismatched Japanese couple whose honeymoon in New Zealand goes awry.

While the storyline (from a Peter Wells short-story) strains to deliver dramatically, the flawless photography and stately pace contrive a faintly surreal version of our native landscapes, with a dose of Tokyo-style alienation thrown in.
