On the east coast of New Zealand, the Whangara people believe their presence there dates back a thousand years or more to a single ancestor, Paikea, who escaped death when his canoe capsized by riding to shore on the back of a whale. From then on, Whangara chiefs, always the first-born, always male, have been considered Paikea’s direct descendants. Pai, an 11-year-old girl in a patriarchal New Zealand tribe, believes she is destined to be the new chief. But her grandfather Koro is bound by tradition to pick a male leader. Pai loves Koro more than anyone in the world, but she must fight him and a thousand years of tradition to fulfill her destiny.
This movie is one of my favorite movie the last time and I know I’ll be watching it soon again. Whale Rider is by far the best online movie production I’ve ever seen. I was so impressed of Whale Rider that I ended up watching it eleven times in cinema and few times watch online.
The soundtrack of these movie is simple, decieving, full of mischief in its own right. I love how music just is the pure soul of that movie. Whale Rider stand up to the test of time.
I needed some time after I watched to get back to mind. I haven’t found this full movie anywhere else so I uploaded it here on YesMovies, now each person can watch this movie from here for free.
