Mahana is a New Zealand western, an epic tale of a family and the patriarch who rules them. Adapted from a novel by WitiIhimaera (Whale Rider) and directed by  Lee Tamahori (Once Were Warriors), its sentimentality could have been jarring in less skilled hands. Under Tamahori’s masterful direction, Mahana is pure wonderful.
