Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 08/28/1981
"...Gibson shows wit, ingenuity and range....Airborne adventure."

"[E]levated by eye-popping 'scope photography from Russell Boyd..."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/16/2005
"The heartbreaking final scenes of Aussie youths matching their bayonets against machine guns elevate the film to an antiwar masterpiece." -- Grade: A

Product Description:

A profound study of the friendship of two young Australian men caught up in the murderous First World War. Set on the Turkish front in 1915, this film effectively combines history and drama.

Plot Synopsis:

"Gallipoli" relates the events surrounding the ill-fated World War I battle, in which Australian and New Zealand troops set out to capture Istanbul. But mistakes made by upper-echelon military commanders led to disaster -- in which the army grunts suffered the most.
The film, however, focuses not only on epic clashes, but on the friendships that developed between the soldiers on the field.
