...Woman's Point of View...and involving much of a woman's sensitivity.
And yet the movie we're given is from a story written by a man, Witi
Ihimaera. A man well known for an acclaimed, later literary work (and
film), "The Whale Rider" (world premiere at the 2002, Toronto
International Film Festival). Still, this is an author who seems to
possess much of the "sensitivity" referred to above. In truth, female
touches abound, which should be no surprise, inasmuch as this film work
was steered by Director Katie Wolfe, aided by the screenplay writing of
Kate McDermott. So, in essence, this is almost as much the story of our
Gay lead, Kawa's ....Wife....his Mother....his Daughter, as it is of
the man, himself.
BUT, woman's point of view or not, the Pain....the Angst....revealed to
us in Calvin Tuteao's characterization of Kawa is REAL. For at its
heart this is a story of a man from whom much is, and has been,
expected by his Maori societal group....and family. We see a Gay man
who has, in fact, led a heterosexual married life, with children.
Nevertheless, what we are shown, beneath the cover of all that, is a
man experiencing a severe case of "Closetophobia" (fear of Coming
Out).....and a near disabling Fear of Disapproval.
Yes, there is a male lover (on the side)....and visits to a bathhouse.
BUT for those anticipating finding more than mere hints of Gay romance
and Gay love scenes in this work, I must reluctantly say such hopes
will be dashed. The emphasis seems to be, instead, upon heterosexual
closeness....family closeness. And fear of loss of the latter.
Oh, there is a "final stand" taken against family...and society, and it
is effectively conveyed to we viewers. But I will reveal nothing more
about this film's closing storyline. I can say, however, that
production values were unexpectedly high from this film goer's point of
view. And gorgeous New Zealand scenery doesn't hurt at all (rating
credit was given for all this).
I have yet to decide whether to keep this video in my Gay Film Library.
