Well directed acting and a great story told with sensitivity to our modern context. Love story woven in between. War films are always going to have a sad tragic element. Well handled.

A good Australian war movie about the diggers. A part of the war that I had never known about, so had a lot of enjoyment for me and some great historical value.

Great movie. Quite different as to what actually took place in WW1. Kind of a history lesson really.. Totally worth a watch.


This film was amazing! The acting was as good as Saving Private Ryan. This is a film about the First World War, unlike Saving Private Ryan. The soundtrack is excellent!

Not really into war movies and I like action movies; have to sit down to this movie and listen a lot...I found it a good movie with a bit of action and suspense though. Overall it wasn't a bad movie for what it is. Good story line.
