After the Battle of Gallipoli, in 1915, an Australian farmer, Connor (Russell Crowe), travels to Turkey to find his 3 missing sons. While staying at a hotel in Istanbul, he meets Ayshe (Olga Kurylenko), the hotel manager. And tries to find a way to Gallipoli.Written by
Director Russell Crowe said of Ukrainian-born actress and his co-star Olga Kurylenko: "Olga was a revelation to me...When we met, I was confident she was the right person for the role, but she exceeded all my expectations. She is magnificent as Ayshe." Kurylenko said: "It's a beautiful story, and I fell in love with the character...She's unlike anyone I've ever played. There was so much to learn." See more »
Movie shows clearly that Connor enters Istanbul through the port of Haydarpasa (at the Asian side of the city). The boy drags him to the hotel which is supposed to be around Sultanahmet (European side). This is verified by the boy's comment "Sultanahmet, we go!" and with the camera shots several times downhill from the hotel with a clear view of Galata tower from the old city.
The problem is; Connor follows the boy running from Haydarpasa to Sultanahmet in a couple of minutes, which is impossible due to the Bosphorus waterway between the Black sea and the Marmara sea passing through the city.

Lt-Col Cyril Hughes:
We lost over two thousand men in those four days at Lone Pine. The Turks lost seven thousand. We didn't take too many prisoners either. I don't know if I'd forgive any of us.

Russell Crowe has absolutely outdone himself with this film; it had me entranced from the start. Beautifully shot, amazing casting and the time and effort put into the making of this film really shone through. I feel the costumers deserve an Oscar nomination for this one - everything was spot on which for a period drama is almost impossible:) Flawless casting and great character development leads the viewer through the story; this film will bring out emotions and provoke thought. I loved the perspective of the film; it is an exceptional sensitive retelling of an historical story from both perspectives and I think this is one of the absolute highlights of this film.
See it - you won't be disappointed!Take the tissues though...
