The Water Diviner (2015) Film Review

So a brief plot of the film…It’ entails an Australian man’s quest to find his three sons who were lost in the Battle of Gallipoli in 1915.  His aim is to bring back his sons to bury them at home.  The film also entails a romance and a friendship amongst unlikely friends. 

I really have tried to not give too much away!

The film…is excellent.  The acting is excellent.  Everything is excellent!  Russell Crowe takes the role of director in this film and takes the lead acting role.  The film is inspired by true events and I think this makes it a relatable and interesting film which teaches you a brief history of the Gallipoli war.

The film set is beautifully portrayed.  Even for those who are not interested in old fashioned movies, this one is created so perfectly that you appreciate the resources that we have today to create a film set in 1915.  The story line as explained before, is fairly straightforward and uncomplicated but it is told so brilliantly.  Also, it’s not a long film which drags on and on.  It’s roughly 1 hour and 50 minutes so it keeps you captivated.

You will go through so many emotions watching this film – laughter, floods of tears, relief, fear, excitement, hope…again, I really do not want to give too much away but it is a brilliant film that everyone should take the time to watch!
