Wonderful treatment of a legend
22 March 2016 | by flippingoodphotoSee all my reviews

Sensitive and moving documentary film based on 6 individuals who served in the New Zealand Expeditionary force at Gallipoli. Striking animations crafted with richly researched documentary screenplay. First feature length film on the subject from New Zealand directors and Leanne Pooley. The characters are well developed and the connections between scenes are very well down especially with the animated transitions and metaphors. The film hasn't had wide release here in Australia but i was lucky enough to see it on the big screen at The National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra. If you have the chance i would recommend you see this film, well worth a look.
