Truly wonderfully shot,directed,edited and for the most part acted.Not knowing much about the real story(other than obviously being familiar with a lot of Parer's legendary work)I can only speculate how much "artistic license" has been used to inject drama into this movie.
Yes the soldiers did often look a little too clean and healthy and I could have done without much of the love story as that really doesn't do much for me in a film of this style.
I was however able to easily forgive those shortcoming and enjoy what is without a doubt a jewel in the more often than not crap that is Aussie cinema.
Beautiful,compelling and emotional.A great piece of work doing homage to a true HERO of Australia.Will no doubt end up in my top 10 of all current releases I watch this year.I would like to say more but can't without spoiling.
A must watch.Get it on iview before its gone or any other way you can, this one is not to be missed.
