Peter Weir's Gallipoli tackles a legend in human terms and emerges as a highly entertaining drama on a number of levels...

Weir's work has a delicacy, gentleness, even wispiness that would seem not well suited to the subject. And yet his film has an uncommon beauty, warmth, and immediacy, and a touch of the mysterious, too.

Even Mel Gibson can't bring down the grade for Peter Weir's magisterial 1981 portrait of the first world war campaign.
