Just returned from the flicks where I saw this film. True story about an Aussie tunnelling company on the Western Front digging beneath the German lines. Film is based on memoirs of leading character. Its style is if anything better than Gallipoli - which IMHO was a social drama until the last 20 minutes - or Breaker Morant - a khaki courtroom drama. Also much better than most recent Aussie war film - Kokoda (39th Bn in UK edition) which did not allow characters to develop. Beneath Hill 60 gets 4 Stars from me. Another thing, I have always hoped that a Brit director would make film of Birdsong, a story about WW1 British RE tunnellers, but now that appears a forlorn hope.
