Beneath Hill 60

Hi everyone
Yesterday we went and saw a movie that I was supposed to watch last weekend for Anzac Day - Beneath Hill 60.

I am not a fan of blood,gore or violence.  But I do love History and I love movies based on true stories, especially Australian ones, as there is so little information around.  I have learnt more about my own country doing genealogy than was ever taught in school - which is a HUGE shame on our education system.  Ok off my soap-box and back to what I meant to be talking about.

I loved it!!!!

No big HOLLYWOOD names in it, great Australian actors (I did recognise their faces but did not know their names) and an amazing story.  While it brings the reality of the situation they were in to your mind, they did not accentuate with gratiutious blood and violence.

We need more movies like this, so go and watch it!!!


  1. I am looking forward to seeing this one. It was filmed in my hometown!

  2. When I have time, which will be probably a year after is goes to DVD...

  3. I wish we got aussie films over here in Canada. This one indeed looks like a winner. Lucky you!

    Thank you for the comment on my blog :) I love feedback!


  4. I saw an article about it on TV - I think I'd rather read the book though! (assuming there is one!!)

  5. Sounds good - wonder if it will come over here? **Kim**x
