One of my all time best movies to watch, funny but subtly tragic, great casting, Rocky should have got an Oscar! Should have showcased the East Coast more in the movie, beautiful place. More please from Waititi!

Hey I am a British visitor to New Zealand and I bought this DVD in Devonport supermarket. In the UK I live in Devonport so had to.
I LOVED LOVED LOVED this movie. It is genius, touching funny, beautiful. i was just snotted up crying by the end. Us Brits crammed like sardines in our land would love to live in a place like that. The children were adorable and so was the acceptance of eccentricities. Maoris Rock!

Venus - The last thing I would want is for this film to be taken to the world stage. People already think Māori are women beating, alcoholic criminals, you only have to look at New Zealand film history to see that. What exactly is different about 'Boy'? Does it have alcohol? check, Does it have crime? check? Does it have violence? check, does it have drugs? check? Where is tikanga Māori? Where the heck is our reo??

Kia Ora Te Whare, my first reaction was similar to your comments.
Taking a longer and slower look, I found the meaning in "a painful comedy of growing up".

What astounds me more, is that from all our painful growings, a film such as this can take Maori to the rest of the world. And also bring the rest of the world to Maori.

Its a win win dont you think ? Eventually it is.

Is this all Māori are reduced to in the eyes of the world? Drunken, weed smoking bums? A few laughs? Look closely whānau, this film continues the negative portrayal of Māori in film. When are we going to see beauty of our pūrākau, we have stories upon stories which encompass all that Māori are. We are more than what Taika has shown the world.

E ngā iwi o te motu, me titiro tātau ki muri hei ārahi tātau ki mua

Look to the past to guide us into the future

Awesome film and great lead character. Boy, which in my hometown is what every young fulla gets called, it is a film that deserves the amount of press and attention Whale Rider had!

This is the funniest movie I have ever seen. I absolutely loved it.
It soo reeminded me of my childhood,and of the fond memories of Michael that I'm sure all us kids of the "80"s share.Hilarious yet ever so touching, I laughed,cryed......every emotion was stirred.
Tumeke Taika. Brilliant work.
