Once Were Warriors (Riverside Studios 0181-741 2255) 6.45pm

Based on Alan Duff's controversial autobiography about a Maori community in New Zealand. Its creator, Lee Tamahori, went on to try his luck in America with the less than inspired Mulholland Falls. The film traces the efforts of a mother-of-three to keep her family intact amidst the drinking and fighting ways of her brutish, yet strangely alluring husband. Not the depressing fare you might expect, but rather an intriguing look at the Maori community.
