My favourite film of all time,
This review is from: Gallipoli - Collectors Edition (1982) [DVD]  (DVD)
I remember taking the day off school when this film originally came out in the cinema. It had an enormous impact on me so I was delighted to discover it on DVD and watch it again with my son who was equally moved by the futility of war and pointless sacrifice of such young men who were only a few years older than he is.
While there are some scenes that drag a little bit, overall the movie is beautifully shot, but it is the story it tells that is paramount here. Mel Gibson has never looked more noble and Mark Lee showed such great promise with his emotional portrayal.
