FILM REVIEW: THE DARK HORSE
Chess helps challenged lives
Troubled Genesis uses his chess ability to help disturbed youth.
The big screen
Grim refers to the lives and
opportunities awaiting the characters
in The Dark Horse. They inhabit a
world of limited chances.
The story centres on Genesis, a
Maori who, from an early age, showed
an extraordinary talent as a chess
player. In his drive to become the best
chess player, he was overcome by
Upon his release from hospital,
Genesis is told to take his medication,
get eight hours of sleep and avoid
The reality of his world is that he is
homeless, jobless and finds himself
back in the circumstances that caused
him, in his brother s words, to go off
His only refuge is his brother s
home, the local headquarters of a gang
called Vagrants. His brother leads the
gang and says I can t help you ,
gives him $1000 and tells Genesis to
take care of himself.
In a bid to stabilise his life, Genesis
mentors a group of troubled youths at
a local chess club. He sets the goal of
taking these youths to the New
Zealand Junior Chess Championship.
This gives both Genesis and the
children a positive outlook.
However, in the defective world in
which the children, Genesis and his
brother live, life isn t that easy.
Any idea of equilibrium in their
lives, such as preparing for a chess
tournament, only gives them breathing
room from the destructive elements
that disrupt their daily lives.
Genesis connects with these wild
children because he relates chess
strategies and the chess pieces to
Maori folklore and mythology. That s
one of the many strands running
through this film.
The Dark Horse explores what it
means to be normal, brotherhood,
culture, connection and a sense of
Although it offers a glimmer of
hope, we realise that their struggle is a
sustained one. The Dark Horse is a
strong-willed and confronting film.
