WRITTEN BY: David ROACH
PRODUCED BY: Bill LEIMBACH
During World War I, a platoon of untrained Australian soldiers embark on a secret mission to dig a series of tunnels underneath a German bunker and detonate a bomb creating the largest explosion the world had ever seen.
"The triumph of the film is its re-creation of the war underground, a visceral, claustrophobic netherworld where war is being reinvented. "
- Sydney Morning Herald
"The film deserves to stand alongside such films as Gallipoli (1981), Kokoda, The Odd Angry Shot (1979) and Breaker Morant (1979).
- The Age (Australia).
Driven by a fine script and top performances, this powerfully affecting drama reveals an astonishing untold Australian war story.
