DVD Booty - Utu (370 words)
This film on the surface is a tale of an episode in the Maori Wars in New Zealand in the 1870's in which a Maori scout - Te Wheke - turns 'renegade'.
The film weaves an intricate web of relationships between complex and intelligently scripted characters that are set within an equally complex society in which two conflicting cultures are alternately accommodating and warring with each other and among themselves.
The film depicts how the innocent pay the price for the wrong doings of others, how the wronged become the perpetrators of acts of violence against the innocent and ultimately how the notion of vengeance spires out of control and everyone is sucked into the cycle.
