Great film, well directed
29 May 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a fantastic film. The drama involved made the film realistic and life-like sequences really make you fell sorry for the poor diggers and their experiences. The ending is particularly sad, All in all a great film.
