Deaf movie review of Dunkirk
A hearing perspective:
Dunkirk is an American war film based on one of the most celebrated military events in British history.
Set during the World War II, the movie tells the inspiring story of Operation Dynamo, the evacuation of Allied soldiers from Dunkirk in France, which took place in 1940.
Dunkirk movie features Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, James D'Arcy, Barry Keoghan, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy.
The film is written, co-produced and directed by Christopher Nolan.
The story connects three different timelines– first is on land and covers one week, second is on the sea and covers one day, and third is in the air and covers one hour.
It is a different take on war movies and shows what the soldiers go through during a war and their spirit of survival.
I think the film may be the first one to show that soldiers too can fear for their life.
The film has good acting performances, eye-catching camera work and amazing background music.
However, if you are looking for some sort of entertainment then this movie is a wrong choice because it is a slow and silent film with quite less dialogues (captions are there!).
The film’s story may be technically brilliant but it is difficult to understand without having a background about World War II. Go for the movie with less expectation.
