Two young Australian friends from distinct backgrounds are caught up on the Eastern Front of World War I in the confrontation betwee n Australia and the German Allied Turks. Bungling by the generals in command allows the Turks time to dig in and the battle becomes a mutual war of attrition.
An outstanding drama, Gallipoli resonates with sadness long after you have seen it. Set during World War I, this brutally honest antiwar movie was cowritten by director Peter Weir. Mark Lee and a sinfully handsome Mel Gibson are young, idealistic best friends who put aside their hopes and dreams when they join the war effort. This character study follows them as they enlist and are sent to Gallipoli to fight the Turks. The first half of the film is devoted to their lives and their strong friendship. The second half details the doomed war efforts of the Aussies, who are no match for the powerful and aggressive Turkish army. Because the script pulls us into their lives and forces us to care for these young men, we are devastated by their fate. --Rochelle O'Gorman.

I was happy with the packing and quick delivery too.
Story O.K. If true, made me so annoyed with general who insisted on going ahead without listening to subordinates. And, cowardly in not going to see for himself. Rather like the leaders safe behind the lines at The Somme. who wouldnt go and see what ordinary folk had to do.
