I've just come back from the cinema after seeing this movie and will now be emailing everyone on my contact list that it is a 'must see' on the big screen. Not just for Australians, but for everyone, as it deals with universal themes. The cinematography is stunningly beautiful, the casting and acting is superb and the story is fascinating and never lags. A great blend of emotion and action, and the occasional bit of humour. Last August marked the 100th anniversary of the beginning of WW1, which influenced all our lives. It is so important for people everywhere, and especially young people to learn about what has happened in the past and to gain an understanding of history from the point of view of others, and to learn about their cultures too. This movie, set mainly in Turkey, about 4 years after the end of the war, is one small story of one man's search, set within a much larger story of the meaning and consequences of war. Superb acting and direction by Russel Crowe. Don't miss it !
