Aro Recommended Gallipoli: The Frontline Experience


Turkey 2005, 119 minutes
Dir. Tolga Ornek
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Television, Documentary / War

Topics: Period - 1910s.


Aroview: Devastating documentary which revises traditional treatments of the notorious WW1 Gallipoli Campaign, to present the experience from the perspective of the ordinary soldiers of the ANZAC, British and Turkish forces.

Narrated by Jeremy Irons and Sam Neill, this accesses a wealth of archival details, dramatic reconstructions and, perhaps most movingly, readings from the letters of combatants, lending a uniquely personal dimension to one of the most costly and ill-conceived military attacks ever made. Upon release, this became the highest-grossing film release in Turkey ever.
