Gallipoli (1981) Movie Summary

  • WAR
  • PG
  • 1981

The irresistible lure of adventure and the unknown, combined with national pride, bring two young men (Mel Gibson and Mark Lee) together in the Australian army in 1915. They cross continents and great oceans, climb pyramids and walk through the ancient sands of Egypt to join their regiment at the fateful battle of Gallipoli. The echoes of history blend with the friends' compelling destiny as they become part of a legendary World War I confrontation between Australia and the German allied Turks.

Gallipoli Film Synopsis

As World War I rages, brave and youthful Australians Archy and Frank—both agile runners—become friends and enlist in the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps together. They later find themselves part of the Dardanelles Campaign on the Gallipoli peninsula, a brutal eight-month conflict which pit the British and their allies against the Ottoman Empire and left over 500,000 men dead.

Brilliant CinemaIf you want to understand a little about Australian culture and their sense of humor then this movie provides that means. See this film as Australia's "Gettysburg", Gallipoli was the battlefield that gave birth to Australia's sense of nationhood after its became an separate state from the UK in 1901. This film provides a background of Australian attitudes to helping the "Mother Country" in WW1, top the snse that men wanted to rush off to the great adventure. Google ANZAC Day and this will help you to frame what Gallipoli means to Australians. This is a classic Aussie film.Score: 5/5

Love it.....On my grandfather's deathbed...he read this of his last.....and he said it was one of the best he had ever read.... the movie hadn't been created at the time.....but i have seen it and simply.....LOVE IT THIS MOVIE IS AMAZING AND MEL GIBSON'S PERFORMANCE IS........AMAZING......Score: 5/5

Exciting heartbreaking actionIf you want an all out war movie this may not be for you, but if you want to see an adventure that is filled with drama and sadness this is for you. In my opinion the ending was exciting and filled with emotion but was very sudden,other than the immediate ending it was a great movie.Score: 4/5

A great study on the futility of warA terrific yet ultimately devastating movie. “War is all hell” and an utter waste, as this movie will make all too clear. This one will stay with you for a while..Score: 5/5

A great WWI movieI had always wanted to see this movie for years as I am a fan of any movie that take place during both World Wars. This takes place in Australia and the imfamous battle at Gallipoli where two young Ausies fight with the Australian army against the Turks. Not the best war movie in the world, but still no doubt worth seeing atleast once..Score: 4/5

Great story, but...Mel steals the show with an amazing performance, but the film unnecessarily feels the need to decry the British and French contribution. The British were all snobs, idiots and left the Aussies to do all the fighting according to this movie. Unfortunately the facts (look them up) were that twice as many Brits died at Gallipoli as did Australians and more Frenchmen died at Gallipoli than Australians. The Turks are also shamefully marginalised. A missed opportunity to make an epic that would have stood as more than just a good action film..Score: 3/5

The futility of warThis was a story of how young Aussies during WWI where made to in believe the excitement and adventure of war. This is not a blood and guts war movie but a movie with a conscience and meaning. Great direction by Peter Weir..Score: 5/5

Frank Dunne und Archy Hamilton, zwei prominente Sprinter aus Australien, wollen, als der Erste Weltkrieg ausbricht, ihrem Vaterland im Kampf zur Seite stehen. Sie melden sich freiwillig beim Militär und werden in der Schlacht um die türkische Halbinsel Gallipoli eingesetzt. Bald schon merken sie, dass es im Krieg keine Romantik gibt, wie man das aus Erzählungen kennt, doch es gibt keinen Weg zurück.

La sete di avventura di due giovani corridori australiani, legati da un forte legame di amicizia, li condurrà ad arruolarsi volontariamente nell'esercito inglese durante la prima guerra mondiale. Destinazione: Gallipoli.

Peter Weir'in hikayesiyle 1915 senesinde Avustralyalı iki arkadaşın paylaştığı dostluğu anlatan bu filmde Mel Gibson olağanüstü bir performans sergiliyor. Kıtaları ve okyanusları aşıp, piramitlere tırmanıp eski Mısır'ın topraklarından geçerek Gelibolu'da savaşmakta olan alaylarına katılırlar. İki arkadaşın kaderi, I.Dünya Savaşı'nda Avustralyalılara karşı Almanlar ve Türklerin yapmış olduğu bu savaşla şekilleniyor.

Hollywoodiin myöhemmin ankkuroituneet australialaiset Mel Gibson ja Peter Weir tekivät kotimaassaan vahvan sotadraaman, joka kuvaa kahden lahjakkaan juoksijanuorukaisen elämää ensimmäisen maailmansodan syttyessä. Kaverukset liittyvät kumpikin omista syistään vapaaehtoisina armeijaan ja päätyvät Gallipoliin, jossa ympärysvallat yrittivät Churchillin huonosti suunnittelemaa maihinnousua Turkkiin. Sodan järjetön todellisuus tulee pojille kouriintuntuvasti tutuksi.

Primera Guerra Mundial, 1915. Reza la leyenda del filme: "De un lugar del que nunca has oído hablar llega una historia que nunca olvidarás". Dos amigos australianos, ambos atletas, deciden alistarse para ir a la guerra y les toca luchar contra los turcos en la batalla de Gallipoli.

Archy Hamilton en Frank Dunne zijn de beste sprinters van heel Australië. Als de eerste wereldoorlog uitbreekt besluiten ze hun achtergonden achterwege te laten en schrijven zich in om zich aan te sluiten bij de ANZACS.

Historii australsko-novozélendského armádního sboru (ANZAC), zdecimovaného v roce 1915 na poloostrově Gallipoli, chtěl režisér Weir natočit už dříve, ale kvůli značným finančním nákladům byla realizace filmu neustále odkládána. Dlouhá příprava a ražisérova neústupnost se vyplatily, neboť GALLIPOLI patří k nejpůsobivějším protiválečným snímkům, vůbec. Příběh australských mladíků, jejichž naivní představy o válčení jsou krutým způsobem uvedeny na pravou míru, je přes svůj historický rámec právě dnes velmi aktuální. Velkoryse pojatý film vyniká kupodivu především drobnokresbou jednotlivých postav. Kvality scénáře, důsledně vycházejícího z historické skutečnosti, umocnila suverenní a přitom nápadná režie. Emotivní účinek díla znásobují citlivě použité hudební motivy různých žánrů. Film GALLIPOLI získal celkem 9 australských filmových cen (nejlepší režie, mužský herecký výkon - Mel Gibson, mužský herecký výkon ve vedlejší roli - Bill Hunter, kamera, scénář, zvuk, střih a výprava).

En berättelse om två australienska soldaters vänskap och äventyr 1915. De korsar kontinenter och stora hav, klättrar över pyramiderna och vandrar genom Egyptens öken för att återförenas med sitt regemente i det ödesdigra slaget vid Gallipoli. Historiens vingslag blandas med vännernas fängslande öden när de tar del i det första världskrigets strider mellan Australien och det tyskallierade Turkiet – ett slag som betyder lika mycket för australiensare som Alamo gör för amerikaner.

Δυο Αυστραλοί δρομείς έρχονται αντιμέτωποι με την φρίκη του πολέμου, όταν στέλνονται να πολεμήσουν στην Καλλίπολη της Τουρκίας κατά τη διάρκεια του Πρώτου Παγκοσμίου Πολέμου.

Venskab og eventyr mellem to australske soldater i 1915, som krydser kontinentet og åbne oceaner, bestiger pyramiderne og vandrer på Ægyptens gamle sandstrækninger for at slutte sig til deres regiment ved det skæbnesvangre slag ved Gallipoli. Historiens vingeslag blander sig med vennernes gribende skæbne, da de bliver en del af den legendariske konfrontation under første verdenskrig mellem Australien og tyrkerne, Tysklands allierede, et slag der for australierne er, hvad Alamo er for amerikanerne.

Archy Hamilton est un jeune homme à l'endurance et à la ténacité exceptionnelles. Son oncle Jack l'entraîne à la course à pied. Archy, qui rêve de sortir de la ferme familiale où il s'ennuie, s'inscrit à toutes les compétitions. En 1915, il saisit l'occasion de quitter son pays : il s'engage dans l'armée britannique en trichant sur son âge, en compagnie de Frank Dunne, un coureur à pied rencontré par hasard. Durant le trajet, les deux jeunes gens nouent une solide amitié. Frank est engagé dans l'infanterie et Archy dans la cavalerie. Ils arrivent bientôt sur la péninsule de Gallipoli, d'où doit partir une offensive contre les Turcs…

  1915年,第一次世界大战中,加利普里战役是盟军惨败的一场战役,却有无数澳洲人参予和牺牲。导演藉这场战役写一个少年梦,阿奇里是一个理想主义者,他本来是运动场的跑手,为了伸张正义参战,便把体育精神也带到战场上。他拒绝在战场上充当微不足道的跑腿,宁愿跳出战壕与敌军交锋,明知上级颁下荒谬的命令,仍然忠心耿耿地执行。他的好友法兰是一个浪子,喜欢在运动场上作弊,来到军营也是玩世不恭,等到他真正沾染战争的气氛,也逐渐收起轻佻态度。电影从澳洲西部的牧场开始,发展到开罗的训练军营,最后在土耳其的战场结束。战场上的军官求胜心切,明知下属被敌军的机关枪瞄准,仍然迫令他们冲锋陷阵,结果一败涂地。两个年青人一心为社会服务,结果一个要赔上性命换取经验,留下好友在旁边狂号,惊见理想幻灭。   影评&幕后   编剧和导演用相当细腻的步调,将人性光辉描写得相当淋漓尽致,撼动人心。影片最后的停格,让人联想到了知名战地摄影记者 Robert Capa 于西班牙内战所摄下的经典照片《A Republican militiaman meets his death》。本片荣获澳洲电影奖最佳影片、导演、剧本等八项大奖,梅尔·吉布森更因此荣获影帝头衔。本片获得澳洲电影奖最佳影片、导演、剧本、男主角 (梅尔·吉布森)、男配角 (Bill Hunter)、摄影、录音、剪接等奖项。   梅尔·吉布森1956年1月3日出生于美国纽约,因浓重澳洲口音被当成澳洲人,父母是爱尔兰天主教徒,在纽约长大的吉布森从小就对电影产生巨大浓厚的兴趣。   1968年他随家庭迁至澳大利亚居住,并且在悉尼学习专业表演技术。随后进入影坛,1979年,吉布森出演了两部不同题材的故事片,在感人的剧情片《蒂姆》中,这位22岁的小伙子因成功演绎了而获得萨姆奖;另一部令他一举成名的则是著名导演乔治·米勒的科幻片《疯狂至极》,这两部影片的成功使得吉布森成为澳大利亚冉冉升起的耀眼新星。此外,他还主演了米勒导演的另一部影片《蒂姆》与此同时,他还受到另一位澳大利亚新浪潮导演彼得·威尔的青睐,主演《加里波第》并因该片第二次获得萨姆奖最佳男主角奖。1981年,吉布森在《冲锋追魂手》中的出色表演使他首次被全世界关注。他与威尔的第二次合作进一步提高了他的知名度,这次他在影片《危险年代》中饰演一位企图掩饰印度尼西亚血腥政变的麻木无情的记者。

Mel Gibson apresenta uma eletrizante performance, nesta empolgante história do diretor Peter Weir, sobre a amizade e a aventura de dois soldados australianos em 1915. Eles cruzam continentes e oceanos, sobre pirâmides e caminham pelas antigas areias do Egito para juntar-se a seu regimento na batalha de Gallipoli. Os ecos da história misturam-se com o destino desses amigos, à medida que eles se tornam parte de um lendário confronto na 1ª Guerra Mundial, entre Austrália e os turcos, aliados da Alemanha – uma batalha que significou para os australianos o que Álamo significou para os americanos. Estrelando Mel Gibson e Mark Lee.

מל גיבסון ומארק לי מציתים את המסך כשני אצנים אוסטרליים צעירים המגוייסים לצבא הבריטי ונשלחים לקרב ההרסני בגאליפולי, תורכיה, בזמן מלחמת העולם הראשונה. הסרט נחשב כיותר סרט "אנטי מלחמה", והוא לא כמו שאר סרטי המלחמה ההיסטוריים, אפילו שהוא מתוייג כ "Rare Movie" ולקח זמן רב עד ששוחרר ב Wide Screen, הוא עד היום נחשב לאחד מסרטיו המצליחים ביותר של הבמאי פיטר ווייר, אחד מסרטי המלחמה הטראגיים.

Mel Gibson lehengerlő alakítást nyújt Peter Weir rendező lenyűgöző történetében, mely két ausztrál katona barátságáról és kalandjairól szól 1915-ben. Kontinenseken és óceánokon kelnek át, piramisokat másznak meg és gyalog szelik át Egyiptom ősi sivatagát, hogy csatlakozzanak regimentjükhöz a végzetes gallipoli csatában. A történelem visszhangjai keverednek a barátok lebilincselő sorsával, amint részévé válnak az I. világháború legendás ütközetének Ausztrália és a Németországgal szövetkező törökök között. Ez a csata olyan az ausztráloknak, mint Alamo az amerikaiaknak...

1915 год. Два романтически настроенных молодых человека вступают в ряды австралийских вооруженных сил. После ускоренной подготовки в «учебке», затерянной в песках близ древнеегипетских пирамид, приятелей отправляют в полк, который ведет боевые действия против турецкой армии. Друзья еще не знают, что им предстоит принять участие в битве при Галлиполи — одном из самых кровавых сражений первой мировой войны…

1915년 6월 카이로 호주군 훈련소. 친구들과 이집트의 상인들 등과 재미있는 나날을 보내던 프랭크는 보병과 기병 훈련 모의 교전 중에 아취를 만나게 된다. 두 사람은 젊음을 발산하는 기회도 갖으며 피라및에 올라 '프랭크와 아취 1915년 호주군'이라 새겨놓는다. 아취와 함께 가고 싶은 프랭크는 결국 기병으로 이전하고 이들은 곧 갤리폴리로 출정하는데...

Mel Gibson przykuwa uwagę elektryzującą grą w wyreżyserowanej przez Petera Weira ("Truman Show", "Świadek"), poruszającej opowieści o wielkiej przygodzie i przyjaźni, jaka połączyła w 1915 roku dwóch australijskich żołnierzy (Mel Gibson i Mark Lee). Wspólnie przemierzają kontynenty i oceany, wspinają się na piramidy i przedzierają przez gorące piaski Egiptu, by wreszcie dołączyć do swego regimentu tuż przed brzemienną w skutkach bitwą o Gallipoli. Echa historii przeplatają się z tragicznym fatum, a losy dwójki przyjaciół stają się częścią legendarnej konfrontacji między stroną australijską a turecką z okresu I wojny światowej - bitwy, która dla Australijczyków stała się tym, czym Alamo dla Amerykanów.

Billy je excelentný bežec, túži po Olympiáde a koučuje ho strýko Jack. Jeho sľubnú kariéru však poznačí vstup Austrálie do vojny. Príbeh mladých austrálskych mužov, ktorí opúšťajú svoje všedné, i nevšedné životy a sú nútení bojovať za svoju vlasť. Sú poslaní do Gallipoli, kde okúsia silu tureckej armády.

Historie om to australske soldaters vennskap og eventyr i 1915. De krysser kontinenter og store hav, klatrer i pyramidene og går gjennom Egypts gamle ørkener for å delta i det skjebnetunge Gallipoli-slaget sammen med regimentet sitt. Historiens ekko blander seg med vennenes tvingende skjebne som deltakere i den legendariske førsteverdenskrigskonfrontasjonen mellom Australia og de tyskallierte tyrkerne - en strid som for australierne er det samme som Alamo er for amerikanerne.

Austràlia Occidental, 1915. L'Archy Hamilton, de família camperola, participa en una cursa per a la qual s'ha preparat a fons. Allà coneix un altre jove atleta, el pragmàtic Frank Dunne, de qui aviat es fa amic. Ha esclatat la Primera Guerra Mundial i, àvid de viatges i aventures, l'Archy s'allista en un regiment de cavalleria lleugera. Refusat per no saber muntar a cavall, en Frank s'allistarà a infanteria. Els dos amics es retroben fent instrucció al Caire, on embarcaran poc després cap a la península de Gal·lípoli. Lluitant a les trinxeres, tots dos hauran d'afrontar la duresa de les batalles contra els turcs.

He's the star of the show--but he doesn't know.

Gradually, Truman gets wise. And what he does about his discovery will have you laughing, crying and cheering like few film stories ever have.
