Trivia

Urk, a small fishing town in The Netherlands, was used as a base of operations for filming on the IJsselmeer (the first two letters of the name are capitalized because they are treated as a single letter). Urk is pronounced exactly the same as the second part of the movie name: dunkURK. When the movie came out, everyone in the town wanted to see it but Urk does not have its own cinema, so to make sure that some people in the town could see the movie in their neighborhood, a cinema-truck (a type of moving cinema with few seats) was set up.

Goofs

"When the two pilots discuss whether flying from 1000' to 2000' is worth the extra fuel consumption, there is no difference in fuel flow rate in a piston engine airplane between the 2 altitudes." While there would be no great difference in fuel consumption cruising at 1000' or 2000', changing altitude while maintaining velocity would require an increase in fuel consumption, although not to a great extent. What can perhaps be said that a tactical error, weather intended "in character" or an unintentional scripting error, may have been made in that even 2000' seems frightfully low to be entering into an areal engagement. But that can also be attributed to a lack of experience on the pilot's part, which would have been consistent with the experience level of the average RAF pilot of the time. See more »

No more than a good TV historical drama
17 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Is this a scam, or has the capacity to be critical been lost due to the very sensitive and emotional subject of the film. For me, it seems like a joke... How could this momentous and dramatic event in our recent history be presented with so little means and ambition ? From books and historical reports, the boarding was a mess, planes were all over the sky, there were myriads of boats and ships, the beach were left with tons of discarded equipment and weapons... We see none of that. How can you give an idea of what it must have been with only a few sparking clean vintage planes, one small war ship, 12 period fishing or leisure boats... How could so many shots taken on site incorporate 1960's, 70's or even 80's buildings, street furniture, modern container cranes... How can it be night for the scenes at sea, and day for what happens on the beach, in Dover, or in the air at the same time ? How long can a spitfire fly after it has run out of petrol, and still manage to fight... For those who like history, it is a waste of time. For those who like action and war scenes, it can be watched but will be a disappointment For those who seek emotions and a peek at humans behaviour during the event, there is reasonably good acting, in a good British drama tradition. I suggest to wait for one year and watch it on TV where this show belongs.
