As Kiwi as it gets…

April 6, 2010

Just went and say Boy at the movies.

Most New Zealand films are either dark or weird… usually both.

But Boy was just fantastic. It’s like every part of Kiwi (particularly Maori) 80’s memorabilia mashed together in a film.  If your not a New Zealander then you might not “get it” but there is something in there for everybody.

Apart from drug use, a bit of swearing and the occasional fight it’s a relatively clean film, and definitely funny!

So proud to be a Kiwi!

Wasnt that long ago that us Kiwi’s cringed at our own accent.  Truth is we still do… well I do.  But the likes of the Flight of the Concords have really made the Kiwi sound hot. In fact, a survey done in the UK shows that our accent is both attractive and prestigious!  You can read the whole article here.

If you don’t know any Kiwi’s (New Zealanders) and feel somewhat deprived of enjoying out accent, here is a taste for you…

perhaps this one doesn’t demonstrate prestigousness…
