  1. lou.'s rating of the film Whale Rider

    I feel like I have an intimate connection to all of it... I'm enchanted, intensely overwhelmed by feelings of inner peace, mysticism, empathy and beauty.

  2. NCMBianchi's rating of the film Whale Rider

    [More like 3.5] The tone is very interesting: having the thoughts of a young kid in such a detached granfather-granddaughter relationship voice the narration, mixing deeply felt parts with more 'all-knowing' points of view is interesting. Technically is nice, but nothing worth noting.

  3. mau's rating of the film Whale Rider

    the overtly moralistic fabula does not trouble me that much, the mechanistic narrative does, a lot. so cliché that it turns into a narrow and introverted movie, notwithstanding the setting. can't breath.

  5. Ryan Borja's rating of the film Whale Rider

    A crowd-pleasing New Zealand film featuring a stellar performance by Keisha Castle-Hughes as a young Maori girl who wants a piece of acceptance in a patriarchal society. There are unforgettable scenes. Uplifting!

  7. jooley's rating of the film Whale Rider

    Was expecting Free Willie, Maori version. Got nothing of the sort. Was not disappointed. It is really well-acted, heartfelt and empowering and it has a nice balance of realism and a broader, legendary scale that I really appreciate.

  13. Johanna Andrea's rating of the film Whale Rider

  14. Jacinta Izquierdo's rating of the film Whale Rider

    Muy bueno el guión y la trama. Bella y sensiblemente filmado además de tener un tema de fondo muy contingente y potente como es la subvalorización de la mujer en ciertas culturas.

  15. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film Whale Rider

    The film is critical about the patriarchal side of the Maori culture; yet at the same time with a female and young character acknowledged as the leader at the end, it also showed that the people-men- belonging to that culture could be very humble. In that sense, the film is not only about the struggle of a female character to get acknowledged but also about the profundity of Maori culture.

  19. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film Whale Rider

    annoying story,happened in a patriarchal society. There is an idea emphasized to the desire mythological, lagging behind the era inside film. but it is dragging audiences to familiar end rather than shock the audience ..this film has similarities with the difficulties faced by females inside mindset of middle eastern societies. But this is not a criticism,it is portrait of a girl who is trying to prove herself here.
