Utu (film)

Utu is a 1983 New Zealand movie directed by Geoff Murphy. It starred Anzac Wallace and was set partly on Robberton Island, Northland. Utu was reputed to have one of the largest budgets for a New Zealand film at the time.

Loosely based on events from Te Kooti's War, it tells of a Māori soldier's desire for utu, or vengeance, on his former allies after the British army destroys his home village and kills his uncle. The film is set in the 1870s.
