Accidents

New Zealand, 1999 (MIFF 1999, Fiction)

Director: Paul Swadel

A harrowing study of fractured male ethos set in the remote beauty of Ruapehu's Makatote Gorge, Accidents deconstructs the myths of masculine camaraderie with a palpable sense of dire inevitability. Reminiscent of William Golding's "Lord of the Flies", the film is tense and provocative throughout, and lingers long after its end credits as a psychological thriller of frightening plausibility.
