Dunkirk - film

I recommend seeing the film. It was interesting and in general well done. Not the Oscar contender it's been hailed as being, however. Major disappointment: The use of the ex-French Navy DD Maille-Brez (currrently a museum ship) as a stand in for WWII RN DDs. IMHO, I'd have rather them used computer graphics for the ships - more realistic than the "real" things. The a/c were both real and nice. Wrong variant of Spitfire for this early in the war, but hey.... They didn't ever do close-ups of the He-111 or Me-109s, and I'll bet they were actually the postwar-built Spanish variants, but from a distance they looked great.
All in all.... talk about a diorama project one would only want to do in small scale....
