"The Water Diviner." An incredible, movie I'd never heard of.

Not sure why this movie went under the radar. Especially since it stars Russell Crowe. Highly recommended!

My review and a trailer:

1. It sounds heartwrenching.

Gallipoli has been the subject of several films-- it must have great significance for the Aussies.

2. I think it did well in the top 100 on Netflix for some time, so it was pretty well known eventually.

I had never heard of it before I got the DVD from there. That was really well done.

3. Saw this a few years ago in the theaters....

Russell Crowe directed this film. Uses Autralian history after WWI and what the ambush at Galippollimeant to people.

Having been to the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, that battle is still fresh in the minds of Aussie's. One of the boats that was used to transport the ANZACS to the Turkish beach, had bullet holes in it. Harrowing was the diary a showing how the ambush went down.

4. I watched it a year ago?

I stumbled on it one day and thought it was a really good movie. I want to watch it again but it was so sad.

7. I enjoyed it


Though I think if Russell Crowe really wanted to make a history film about Australia, it should have been about the aborigines.

He still got flack from Australian entertainment biz about his portrayals, which I don't get, too complicated for me to understand.
