(Once Were Warriors), Lee Tamahori / NZ, 1994
English version / Czech subtitles, 90 min

In a violent relationship, it takes a mother's strength to save herself and her children from the man she loved. Once Were Warriors is a violent love story set against a contemporary urban backdrop. Eighteen years after Jake and Beth Heke married in the first flush of teenage love, it's easy to see why Beth found him irresistible. Jake is a muscular handsome man who exudes an explosive sexual energy. But now Jake spends most of his time at the pub, seemingly proving his masculinity with his fists. And if Beth dares to question him or challenge him, she gets answered with similar violence.
