I did not expect such a dynamo from Nolan. A film for girls from the series "Cute Britons beautifully drape, and courageous Tom Hardy successfully overcomes the law of gravity." Review of the cat BagelDunkirk-Huyunkerk. Cat Bagel on the moral message of the film, and those who expect to see another Pearl Harbor, definitely not worth it. The film offers a lot to understand and think for yourself - and this is a completely different format. Spectator The film is mixed. The meaning of its creation is clear: Nolan wanted to show the war without romanticization. Without annoying, cliched conversations about his wife and children waiting at home, without false heroism, without blind patriotism. But the idea is not enough, in my opinion. Alas. A separate minus for the volume of shots. I understand this is realism. But it was precisely this moment that could be stingy. Ears who will return to me. No rating. Ambiguous movies, it is difficult to give one kind of the point.




Dunkirk Review

First a brief historical reference, for it is the movie was made on the events that took place, world war ii.

In May 1940, some of the British, French and Belgian troops were blocked by the German troops near the town of Dunkirk. Germans advancing on the city from all sides - Army A group, two tank tanks group, Army B group.

As a result, Churchill's cabinet and The British Admiralty decided evacuate parts of the British Corps and Allied parts Troops.

On May 24, Hitler issued an order German tank divisions stop the offensive and ordered not to approach to Dunkirk is closer than 10 kilometers. And the British knew about it -- they intercepted unencrypted stop message tank troops.

Evening On 26 May, the British corps was ordered to evacuate. Tanks to Dunkirk are not came up, but the Germans fired from medium-caliber artillery, German aviation carried out constant raids, the German army constantly attacked, and they resisted the English and French troops who periodically made counterattacks.

British aviation actively opposed the Luftwaffe, and during the evacuation period, there were almost three thousand sorties, time of which 106 planes were shot down Fascists.

Operation evacuation of troops was carried out during the ten days, 693 British and 250 French vessels, also British command turned to all owners of small private vessels requesting to take part in the evacuation troops: a lot of people responded to this and with the help of these vessels, it was possible to evacuate a significant portion of the soldiers.

For ten days of evacuation managed to take out 140 thousands of British and 139,000 troops Allied countries, of which 90,000 were French, there were also a lot of Belgians and the Dutch. Nearly 60,000 more British servicemen were taken out before the start of Operation Dynamo (so-called this evacuation of Dunkirk).

When this Allied troops had to toss in Dunkirk a huge amount of weapons, equipment, and Equipment: almost 100,000 rifles, 68 tons of ammunition, 65,000 vehicles, 455 tanks, 2,470 guns, one and a half million tons fuel and 8,000 machine guns.

After the evacuation is completed 15 thousand of members of the French army, covering the last stage of the evacuation, captured by the Germans.

This is all the dry facts. Now let's do it. let's talk about what Christopher took off. Nolan. I immediately warn that there will be present spoilers so it's not recommended to read to those who film not watched but plans to do it. (Na it's actually quite perfect not necessarily, for the film to the real events has no event at all relationship.)

By cute French town Dunkirk, where beautiful and cozy houses are not told that they were constantly being bombed Germans, a merry group goes somewhat carefree Brits. You know, war, The Germans are prowling here and there, the snipers are shuffling out of windows, machine guns shoot through the streets, and gay Brits go all the way across the street by the kinship of the British soul.

However I'm not going to lie . carelessness: from somewhere swooped fascist bullets, all laydown and only Tommy (Finn Whitehead) escaped because he shot through the wooden gate towards the automatic queue, then threw to hell with a gun (and on the hell, it is on war if you think about it?) and rushed to the beach. We won't see him with the gun again.

On the beach smelled of mass in the army snoots, which are cut neatly lined up in two -- like for Evacuation. Well, you know, war is the same. artillery is dubbed, aviation fumbles out machine guns and continuously bombing, the Germans coming, -- so well, lined up two people in a row and stand, wait for evacuation all ten days.

And Why is that? Because the officers are there. There's no Brit. Some soldiers. On the pier, however, there were two admirals and Commander Bolton (Kenneth Branagh), but they don't command, they do.

I think all the officers have been busy getting to the perfectly smooth beach to decompose some drawers in perfectly perfect stacks - Well, to have a picture. And then because of such a terrific makeover all the officers went somewhere - from the senses-with.

65 thousands of cars the Allies have scattered somewhere On the corners - on the beach they are not. Also on the beach there is no weapon at all except rifles at some soldiers, so the messengers of The Messer meet courageous fall on the sand and only One brave soldier shoots the messer out rifles - ah, Malay!

However I'd be in the shoes of British fighters and German bombers were not particularly afraid Would. That's why they're kind of sterile. Don't that the main character's sand will be sprinkled and four trumpeted in a perfect state without a drop of blood will be put on a beach in a beautiful pose - here's to you, Grandma, and the whole raid.

However a couple of ships with evacuees The Germans managed to break it up. This is of all four ships on which evacuations were carried out. It's good that on the Luftwaffe's side in this nightmarish only two bomber and a couple of Messers, that was released two years after events described. Apparently that's why they so the fig shot.

But on the part of the whole British aviation fleet I'm bravely confronted Tom Hardy accompanied by fellow, who reported to Hardy about the level of combustion in the tank, and then his They did. The comrades were hit, not Hardy. Hardy decided not to return to base (and what do there, If you think about it?), that's why he's bomber, and then when he had The fire is over and Spitfire stopped the engine, Hardy managed to hit another bomber (he's a hero, Of course, definitely!) and then a long time and beautifully planned over the sea, over the beach, above the crowd, which stood on the two awaiting evacuation, and so diligently pre-planned before German troops, where we quite unexpectedly showed as many as three For the first time in the whole film. And happened it only in the final, so that the joys of recognizing the Germans viewer was deprived.

However there's this Tommy and a couple of people in the movie. Soldiers. Who was first driven into the ship's holds and draped the hatch so they there are all immediately rested during torpedo attack (submarines, sternly said Commander, and snoop, and snoop), and snoop), and then after a miraculous rescue, they climbed into the hold of the barge lying on the shore to wait for the tide? And in the barges began to shoot invisible Germans. But so shot, lazily. Shot every five minutes. And then it started. tide, but the Germans still shot every five minutes - already out of the water. Because these Germans are not only invisible but still and iron.

But Nolan wouldn't be Nolan if he hadn't shown the feat of a simple British fisherman, the pilot's father. When the British my father found out he was being requisitioned pleasure boat to sail rescue British soldiers from Dunkirk, The pilot's father said he'd swim himself. Because it's war. And in the war, the British They don't give up their own. And if it's war, it's Be sure to bring your junior teenage son and his teenage friend - Let the scoundrels sniff the gunpowder, or else without it only and know that pudding Eat.

Simple British pilot father will save a lot of people, including Killian Murphy, who as the torpedo almost sunk, so it did not manage to figure out what he should do at all in this movie. And a few more British The soldier will be saved by the pilot's father. And from the raid, Messer will dodge a deft British Maneuver. In general, nails would make out fathers of pilots and endocrinologists.

And we'll also be shown how simple British soldiers still got to London from the Capital of Great Britain. Soldiers will think that they will all start to care in the face, -- en no, ordinary Brits would proud of the feat of British soldiers and amicably tell them, "Good one, guys, good one!"

This is the end of the great saga about the land of Dunkirk, and who watched it -- that's full enough historical truth. For this, quote slogan, "The event that changed the world."


I have certainly watched it all with the greatest Bewildered. At first it seemed to me that Nolan mocks the audience. What Dunkirk, what are the horrors of war? Some kind of complete snooped and just complete nonsense.

Then I realized that this is this... As It... Arthouse, here. As far as I'm I've had to deal with something like this. ugly phenomenon cinematic world, arthouse is when the director has never concerned neither the logic of what is happening, nor connection with some historical events, nor at all anything other than his Majesty PICTURES.

And The pictures in this movie are beautiful, yes. A smooth line of soldiers on the beach, a well-used beach grader who didn't get no wrinkles even during the only one in all the evacuation of the raid all German aviation as part of one Aircraft.

Up to a millimeter lined stacks of some chests. Beautiful pictures of aerial battles that have been British aviation led Tom Hardy against the Luftwaffe in four Aircraft. Beautiful explosions pyropatrons attached to Hardy's plane hull.

Beautiful pictures of instantly sinking ships the entire British fleet four grand. Beautiful pictures claustrophobic barcas hold, in which a sneaky German shoots from under the water and from the holes formed Beautifully splashing water fountains. And hers rush to plug their bodies sympathetic young Britons who, of course, the Nazi fascists are immediately caught up in the bullets into those bodies.

So that's normal - it's arthouse, kids. Except that Nolan didn't want to mess with any "adult" rating, because the box office is something that make teenagers. That's why it was filmed. all under the PG-13 rating, and with this rating bullet in the forehead can still be shown (although its from sin also not shown), but smoking in frame is no longer possible, for what an example to the younger generation?

So right here in this movie, no one smokes. The chas-word! Standing on the beach, waiting by the sea Weather. To be more precise, the teams have been you can recover." However, it is necessary to give Nolan credit: for the entire film one of the main characters has attached himself to flask with some alcohol - you have to think, gin, though without a tonic. That is historical justice at least partially complied.

About all sorts of modern double-glazed windows on Dunkirk buildings, mismatch of models planes and loading cranes on the beach from the seventies -- yes on that already I don't care about the high pier. It's all over. film - one solid and never-ending misunderstanding, what does it have to do with small shoals?

Nolan just doing a perfectly standard Hollywood movie about spherical war through the sight of a Hollywood movie camera - he did it. And even the fact that for some reason they didn't spit any love story (which immediately gave the occasion our smallest undemanding viewers talk about "stunning authenticity"), in fact, little about what he says. Because all the vulgar stamps here quite imagine present, especially in the Father's plan The Pilot and the Son of the Father of the Pilot, as well as with this commander who refused evacuate with an already completely empty beach, because, say, "I need still to help the French" - yes, yes, here Bublik and I must have been supposed to tear up, but it only turned out to lose their noses from the senses-with.

Well, and Hardy's partner loved it, which before the emergency landing their plane on the water specifically closed the lantern of the cabin -- and that it was afterward harder to open it and to make the audience Nervous: will be able to break from the inside Or not? Of course, he won't, but two kicks a bang through the water, of course, will make a neat hatch in the lantern, so that the pilot could still get out to the joy of the entire auditorium.

It's very funny to read reviews of viewers who write about that "Nolan showed the horrors of war." Guys, if to consider this slurp snout "horrors war, then it was possible to fight don't stop at all, if it's like that It looks great.

However I'm not going to lie: one horror Nolan's war did show. When combat pilot Hardy, having flown several hours on the Spitfire without fire, solely on the undoubted courage reaches for the location Germans to surrender there, and before this to burn down the plane ("So don't You get to no one!"), - so, after the way the plane got a little burnt out, it is clear that there is no motor There's no plane. And that he's got a propeller. swirled, apparently, just from the resistance air, and Hardy flew exclusively on personal British mentality. That's it. the real horror of war and was, I get you so Tell.

 So I'm mortally disappointed. Some kind of viewers write that, they say, if you expected to get the new Pearl Harbor then break it because it's different. I can agree with that. That's what Pearl Harbor is all about. It was a full fun, but twenty minutes the bombings were filmed really Effectively. And here I did not understand, on that a hundred million have gone. The film is something looks cheap enough, large-scale there are almost no scenes, there are only beautifully staged footage. But, however, I understand that it's so smooth to align chests on the beach and the beach itself is standing Money.

Well and when I read all sorts of promotional stuff about that, say, Nolan before creating the film scoured a hundred thousand two hundred fifty historical documents and evidence -- I think they're viewers they still think they're idiots. Because you can clearly see from the picture that Nolan even I haven't read the article on Wikipedia. Well, it happens, there are five pages.

On the other hand, what to be upset about? For the first time, what, Hollywood from the world war makes a drooling balagan? Far from being The first. Say thank you again, recalled the cat Bagel, that there's no miracle aunt on I didn't run the beach, and they can.

But I just want to remind you that even in Hollywood sometimes do really good movies about war. And there are many of them.

However Nolan preferred the PG-13 rating to The schoolgirls wept. And he's in it. Absolutely right. Even a hundred million, you don't get it, picture collected more than half a billion. Means now it is time to continue in the same spirit. Over there many more military operations in the Second there was a world. There's a place to turn around.

It's a pity because it's only recently Nolan filmed a really cool Movies. And I'm certainly not a stupid Interstellar. I mean.
