''Gallipoli'' is a 1981 Australian film directed by Creator/PeterWeir, set during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI and focuses on the failure that was the [[UsefulNotes/AussiesWithArtillery Gallipoli landings.]] Well, there's a bit more to it than that. The film completely avoids glorifying war by showing how boring it can be - from slow moving training, to months at sea, to the endless waiting before battle.
