Abstract:

Based on the autobiographies of New Zealand author Janet Frame, this three part mini-series traces the first forty years of Frame's life from her childhood years in the twenties through the incorrect diagnosis of her acute shyness as being a symptom of schizophrenia, which led to eight years of electric shock treatment in a mental institution, to her sojourn in Europe on a literary grant, the film ending with Frame's return to New Zealand in 1964. Campion structures the film elliptically but lucidly in a series of short scenes, an approach at its most stricking in the first two parts. The success of the series is in no small measure due to the casting of the three actors as Janet in childhood, adolescence and adulthood.
