The Good, the Bad and the Anguish of War:

• The war scenes conveyed some of the horror without being gratuitous with its violence. There was some shown, but only briefly, and really just enough to set the scenes.

• The Turkish army is manifested to be a group of very respectable people merely defending their home land. But the most intriguing and amazing aspect of the entire film is the close friendship between the Turkish and Australian soldiers after the war.

• The film is absolutely heart touching and explores the bond between a father wishing to reunite with his sons. From the beginning, audience will feel their heartstrings pulled by the war scene with the child soldier because lots of child soldiers died during the World War I.

Trivia:

• "The Water Diviner" is Russell Crowe's directorial debut which has thus far been met with widespread positive acclaim.
