When Robbie is standing behind the movie screen at Dunkirk, the men in the audience hum/sing "White Cliffs of Dover." The song was written in 1941, and Dunkirk Evacuation was in 1940. The song became most famous when Vera Lynn recorded it in 1942. See more »
I usually don't like watching novels turned into movies (specially when I liked the novel as much as I liked McEwan's "Atonement") but this was a really pleasant surprise. The plot is extraordinarily well adapted, leaving out what cannot possibly be included in a two-hour film, changing very few details to translate literary language to cinematographic language but sticking to the essence and the spirit of the novel.
I really believe that if you enjoyed McEwan's novel, you will fall for this beautiful film. If you have never read McEwan, you will fall for the intriguing and thrilling story written by this wonderful English novelist.
Please, don't miss this one!
