What are critics saying?


Variety by

Peter Weir's Gallipoli tackles a legend in human terms and emerges as a highly entertaining drama on a number of levels, none of them inaccessible to anyone unfamiliar with the actual events.


The New York Times by Janet Maslin

Mr. 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.


Time by Richard Schickel

Well acted and, within its limited terms, well made, Gallipoli represents a failure of nerve as well as design.
