Taika Waititi / NZ, 2010 / 87 min.
Idiosyncratic, visually spectacular tragicomedy about growing up in New Zealand in 1982. 11-year-old Boy fantasises about his absent father, imagining him as a diver, war hero, and close relative of Michael Jackson. In reality, his father is an incompetent wannabe gangster, who suddenly returns to Boy’s life.
