A father's journey in search of his sons
Factual Mistake
The Turks storm the (empty) ANZAC trenches on the 20th December 1915. They movie portrays this as a sunny day with hot weather. In reality snow and frost appeared as far back as November with as many as 16,000 cases of frostbite and exposure reported for November alone.

Revealing Mistakes
The British Army Officer Lt. Col Hughes was wearing the rank of Lt. Col but at the same time he is wear red stripes which are worn by Col, who are one step to Lt. Col. This was wrongly show.
During a tv show, Yilmaz Erdogan stated that it was 49 degrees Celsius when they were shooting the movie's some scenes in Australia.

In the credits, Crowe congratulates the South Sydney Rabbitohs on their 21st premiership, they are an Australian Rugby League team which Crowe co-owns.

Cem Yilmaz and Yilmaz Erdogan dubbed themselves in the Turkish dubbed version of Water Diviner.

The dog used in the opening scenes is Russell Crowe's own dog. He is called Biggles and was asked to lose weight for the role.

Russell Crowe's directorial debut.

Having convinced Russel Crowe to give himself the role of Hasan by adding that you will never regret doing this,Yilmaz Erdogan is nominee for the best supporting actor.

The horse that Russell Crowe rides in the scenes shot in Australia is actually his own horse Honey.

Director Russell Crowe wanted Cem Yilmaz for his role because he was very familiar with his talent. In fact they got along really well Russell Crowe tweeted "darling Cem you are not funny these days" as a joke in Turkish.

The shooting of the film began on December 2, 2013 in Australia.
