Initially made for New Zealand television and shown in 3 parts. The cinematic virtues of the film found it audiences world wide in theatrical exhibition. The story of Janet Frame, novelist, is one that shines a light on so called psychiatric treatment of the time period that centered out the 'odd' non-comformists of society. Frame's story is well adapted by Laura Jones and given visual mastery by the filmmakers.
