Why ANZAC product reviews

Sam Neill examines the enduring myths of the Anzac legend, sharing his family's war stories and uncovering forgotten truths that haunt us still today.

From the Gallipoli Peninsula back to the Otago Peninsula, New Zealand, where he grew up; across the Tasman to Australia where he has lived for 35 years; and over to the killing fields of Belgium, France, Crete and Italy, Sam Neill probes why New Zealand and Australia are bound by the blood shed during a century of warfare.

On the centenary of the disastrous Gallipoli landing, the film looks for answers as to why that particular event has become symbolic and is remembered more than any other in the two nations' shared history. Personal photographs and letters are featured, as well as selected archival footage and interviews with historians.

I really enjoyed this movie, like history and always nice to learn more about what has happened in the past. I put the DVD on and was hooked since the opening credits. I really loved the photos, loved the letters that the young guys wrote home and the memories shared and passed down from family members. The footage showing Gallipoli and other important areas where action occurred were amazing and the shots of the cemeteries had me in tears especially since some of the dead were so young.

I have young kids who would benefit from watching this but not quite this young, I will definitely be keeping this for when they are older. I especially liked how the movie wasn't all blood and guts, there was some old movies referred to but there was no blood to try and shock the viewer. I feel like I understand a bit more of the history of New Zealand.

If I was a history teacher this film would be a good one to show when kids are studying ANZAC day and the importance of the day. The film starts from 1915 and covers a lot of the history and wars since then, a lot of it is also personal family history.
