I went into this documentary about the Gallipoli campaign wondering how it could possibly have anything new to say to an Australian audience. And it doesn't. It's the manner of the telling that will shake you, for it comes from inside the belly of the beast — drawn from a collection of diaries, letters and memoirs written by those who were there.
– Sandra Hall in The Sydney Morning Herald, 2 November 2005
In their diaries and the letters during the summer, the soldiers talked much more about the disease and the conditions than the fighting. I really wanted to be as confrontational as possible about that, to make people feel how I felt as I read the diaries.
– Director Tolga Örnek
Gallipoli is a noble, serious and comprehensive piece of work which deserves to stand for the next century as the definitive film record of what one soldier called ‘an absent-minded war’.
– Peter Calder in The NZ Herald, 27 October 2005
