3 years has passed since Nolan released his grand masterpiece (personal ipinion) Interstellar. None would understand the amount of anticipation and excitement let alone expectations I have coming to watch this film.
Based on a true miraculous rescue story of the Allied soldiers during world war II, Nolan gathered names such as Fionn Whitehead, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, One Direction’s Harry Styles, etc. recreating the story in the most beautiful way possible. You can really feel and capture the desperation, hope, terror, and heroism.
With three different points of view, Nolan creates and tell this story epicly. Carved with details, showing every each part of the operation has characters and stories of their own. The soldiers stranded on the beach, the pilots and their dogfights, even the civilians in their ships working the operation. It’s just so beautiful how each of their endeavours came to one.
The thing that really left me in awe is the depth and development the characters in the story have. Most of these characters aren’t even named, yet you can truly understand where these guys are coming from, what their purpose is, and why they fight… or surrender. Each characters have their reasons to be there, while some stories have character to develop the story; that’s not the case in Dunkirk, the characters are there, the story is there, they complimented each other and made a mix of one beautiful ecstasy.
One of the main aspect of this film is it’s background music, that plays almost throughout the whole film. The great Hans Zimmer really outdone himself. The transitions of the music complimenting the film really made me tear up… Literally. It doubles the feels each scene is emtting.
This film is really a must watch, especially for Nolan fans, war-film fans, and maybe One Direction fans lol, cause honestly, Harry Styles played the part pretty well.
Dukirk has officially become one of my favorute films, ever.
