Aro Recommended What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?


New Zealand 1999, 103 minutes
Dir. Ian Mune
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Drama

Topics: Sequelitis, Indigenous & Minority Cultures.


Aroview: Alan Duff-scripted sequel to his novel ONCE WERE WARRIORS is as good a sequel as one could reasonably expect.

Story continues some years on with Jake 'the Muss' Heke learning more lessons the hard way after more family members start paying for his sins. Dir. Ian Mune musters excellent performances all round, and succeeds in his tricky aim to create a film quite distinct from the original without betraying its impact or integrity.
