Running time 1h 58m | Directed by Kriv Stenders | Australia | Action, drama, war
In August 1966, in a Vietnamese rubber plantation called Long Tan, 108 young and inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives against 2500 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong soldiers.
A straightforward but compelling account of a significant military victory in an unpopular war.

The film is clearly designed as a tribute to the unfaltering courage of those men, yet it is not some hollow, patriotic flag waver, nor is there much glory in the outcome. The battle scenes are vivid, graphic and often brutal.
