Poi E: The Story of Our Song full movie review - Well done the Kiwis!

Ever since 1962 I have regarded as Lawrence of Arabia as the greatest film I have ever seen, however after watching a New Zealand film "Poi E" today, I think it has now fallen to second place.

I only hope that it will be released in the U.K as it epitomizes most of the things that makes to me, a "Twenty-five Pound Pom of 1962 vintage " all the things that makes New Zealand the nearest thing to Utopia that I'm ever likely to encounter in this lifetime. New Zealand has always had a reputation of "punching above it's weight" and I am sure that this film re-enforces that belief. I suspect that the statisticians will also come up with the same opinion after the present Olympic games in Rio.
