2010 | CTC | 92 mins| New Zealand | D: Gaylene Preston

Gaylene Preston’s poignant drama based on her interviews with her father, gives Australian actor, Tony Barry, a rare opportunity to move into a leading role worthy of his talents. He plays Ed, who enlists in the NZ Army in 1940 and heads overseas leaving his pregnant wife behind, promising he’ll be home by Christmas. Four years later he returns, after the horror and hardship of war, to find that his world has changed. Tony Barry rises to the challenge superbly, giving a performance that reveals the depths of Ed’s experiences that he cannot express in words. Criminally unknown in Australia, this film is a seamless and innovative hybrid of re-enactment and authentic dialogue. “A gentle, funny, utterly truthful film” – Graeme Tuckett, Dominion Post
