What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?

Film (Trailer and Excerpts) – 1999

R16
Restricted

This film is about the redemption of Jake the Muss. It picks up the story after Jake has turned his back on his family (his wife has left him to escape the violence) and is up to his usual tricks in McClutchy's Bar. After one of his sons dies suspiciously in a gang fight, another sets out to find revenge, accompanied by young gang member Tania (Nancy Brunning). Scripted by Alan Duff and directed by Ian Mune, the film was the second-highest-earning NZ film of the 1990s, (eclipsed only by Once Were Warriors). It scooped most of the categories at the 1999 NZ Film & TV Awards.

You know the rules. You gotta earn your keep sister.
– Gang leader Apeman (Pete Smith) to recent arrival Tania (Nancy Brunning)
