: It was enjoyable to watch if you knew the
: history. If not, then you might have thought
: that the evacuation took place in one day.
: They kept flipping from day to night back to
: the same day. Very strange. There was little
: character development. You see the RN
: captain and no explanation as to what he is
: doing. Little credit is given to the French
: who held the line for the British to escape.
: But even with these flaws I would recommend
: this film.
: --Previous Message--
: 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....
