Full movie description "One Thousand Ropes":"The power to change, the strength to heal" is the catch phrase for the new film from Tusi Tamasese about family connections, redemption and starting anew. The father of a deeply troubled household that endured tragedy both from without and within, seeks to reconcile with his youngest daughter by making a journey to both symbolically and culturally lay the family "ghosts" to rest.
Reviews of the One Thousand RopesOne Thousand Ropes, a Samoan language film from from New Zealand. Day number 2 at Berlin 2017 was marked by two films in languages hardly ever heard on cinema screens. The Lingala language from Congo and The Polynesian language, Samoan, from New Zealand. To take the second first, this is probably the first time the Samoan language has been heard in a feature film. (for the non-linguists out there there, Samoan is vowel rich but consonant poor Polynesian language Related to Tahitian and Hawaiian)
Tusi Tanasese's film focusing on the dark domestic life of an urbanized Samoan family in Wellington, New Zealand where Samoans constitute the largest non-white community next to the indigenous Maoris, is almost claustrophobic in that most of the action takes place in extreme closeups within the confines of a single house which also serves as the family bakery business. Maea, the pater familias of this Samoan clan, is an older man who has a mistress and an official "woman" (wife) as well, and a son he considers a wimp and a coward who assists him in the bakery. He is also a part time healer or curandero and assists in the extra hospital delivery of babies when called upon by women who don't trust white medical services. An important part of the birthing ritual is the burial of the placenta in the ground, presumably to guarantee the propagation of the race. If nothing else this film provides a no-holds barred at times painful Insiders look into the lives of an impoverished Island people now living under spare third world conditions in a urban Samoan ghetto in the capital of New Zealand. There are no smiles or light moments in this gloomy picture of life in the Ghetto raw, but the stoic figure of white haired Maea is somehow hypnotic and brought enthusiastic applause at the end from a Packed house of the Saturday night showing at the lavish ZOO Palace cinema in West Berlin. The title refers to the myriad connections between people and the film is in the prestigious Panorama section of the festival. The stoic Big Daddy of the story, Maea, is played by Uelese Petaia, a professional Samoan actor who is so convincing he seems to be an amateur recruited from the local community. And That is saying something.
NOTE: The Zoo Palast with plenty of leg room and reclining seats as on a premium first class plane flight, is probably the most comfortable cinema venue on planet Earth so that even tedious films can be watched in relaxed and cushy inclination.
