“A young and affluent couple become fatally entangled in their own wish-fulfilment world.

“Set in Pakuranga, Auckland, the film explores the role of marriage: its realities, its fantasies, its humour and its tragedies.

“ANGEL MINE is Writer/Director David Blyth's first feature film.

“ANGEL MINE explores the ways in which consumerism and materialism govern lives in middle class suburbia and how this affects the dreams and fantasies of the film's young protagonists.

Patricia Bartlett and her Society for Promotion of Community Standards campaigned against the Film Commission-funded film. The censor gave ANGEL MINE an R18 certificate with the unusual caveat, “Contains punk cult material”.
