A uniquely New Zealand film that can be enjoyed by all. Director Robert Sarkies (who co-wrote the film with his brother Duncan) takes the audience through a cross-section of Dunedin student life. Often funny, but with solid dramatic elements (perhaps suited more to the stage), the film looks at some serious issues and then has a bit of fun with them. Shot on a shoestring budget, yet Sarkies manages to include some wicked cinematography. The frequent humour is best suited to New Zealanders, but they laughed in the right places at Cannes. Don't take it too seriously and you'll appreciate it best.
