Dunkirk – an exceptional film about an extraordinary event

The British were trapped on the beaches of Dunkirk.

The story that unfolds before your eyes is a most dramatic moment in history when hundreds of thousands of English troops are saved from slaughter through shear grit and determination.

The best of British is seen when small boats respond to Churchills plea for help.

The British destroyers cannot help because they are torpedoed by U-boats, the RAF spitfires don’t have enough fuel to protect the skies over the channel and Dunkirk and the soldiers are exposed on the sands of the beaches.

This dramatic film brings together various timelines that result in heroic efforts of some and tragic loss of others.

There is no love story here, no beginning, middle or end, just a moment in history during the first years of World War Two.

I highly recommend this film to you.
