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.
Yilmaz Erdogan stated in a TV show 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 version of Water Diviner.

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

This is 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.

They used Russell crowe's own horse in the scenes shot in Australia.
