Fantastic film. Watched it tonight in Vancouver, on TV's Knowledge Network. As a Kiwi living in Canada for decades (and also as a fan of all things West Coast in NZ), I loved it. This is among the best docudramas I've seen on any subject. That darn understated Ed had me in tears at the end, and I'm not a crier. That "Tu? Tui?" at the end... oh yeah, all done perfectly.

Really enjoyed this wartime love story.
Very cleverly done.

Is this available on DVD in the UK? I'd like to see it.

I have just seen the film Home by Christmas here in AKL and it was one of the best films I have viewed in a long time. The use of vintage wartime footage enhanced the experiance. Thanks Gaylene a first class job!
