Watch Whale Rider - Alternative Versions.
This film, which opened in New York recently, was a total surprise. Director
Niki Caro has done wonders in bringing this story to the screen as it shows
a different and much simple world than the rat race of our society and the
horrible times we live in.
The film presents a glimpse of the Maori society in New Zealand's North
Island. Having visited New Zealand, but not being very familiar with the
Maori culture, this film was a refreshing way to learn some aspects of
The story presented here has a lot to do with pride and tradition, which is
a running theme among different cultural groups the world over. It has to do
with the frustration of Koro by the defection of his eldest son, the
designated heir of hundred years of a bloodline where only the males can
carry the knowledge and the legends from one generation to the
Because of the rage Porourangi, the eldest son, feels after the death of his
wife giving birth to twins, where only the female survives, he leaves his
country and the baby girl is taken by the grandparents. The girl, Pai, will
grow to be an enchanting girl who will be excluded from the teachings of her
grandfather Koro. Even though he loves the girl, he can't deviate in his
narrow vision of the world he knows.
Basically, it is a simple story very well told with a great performance by
the child actress Keisha Castle-Hughes. This girl has such a strong
magnetism while on camera that one tends to forget the rest of the other
characters every time she appears. The grandparents are very well portrayed
by Rawiri Paratene and Vicky Houghton.
This is a film for all ages to enjoy. Compare it with the latest releases
from Hollywood, and it's no wonder to arrive at the conclusion that stories
like Whale Rider have such an universal appeal that should be brought to
the screen more often because of the positive way they show a society and
its people at its best.
