Memorable Aussie epic with Edward Woodward particularly good.
Excellent anti-war flick from Austrailian "new wave"
The film all Australian films since have tried to live up to - and couldn't
Woodward delivers a fine performance as the soft-spoken commander, Brown is effectively hot-tempered and Fitz-Gerald is terrifically naïve.
Breaker Morant is a top-notch film about an injustice in the annals of military history.
A superb war movie with an unsettling moral.
