‘What are we supposed to use, harsh language’?
No! Actually don’t use that either, you’ll upset the censors. In Dunkirk, anyway, now that the movie is rated PG-13. Of course, this movie isn’t quite set on the Eastern Front but it’s WW2 all the same, hardly a picnic. This should not be.
Anyway, Nolan recently said that the movie will have a triptych structure, telling the story from three points of view—air, land, and sea:
“The film is told from three points of view. The air (planes), the land (on the beach) and the sea (the evacuation by the navy). For the soldiers embarked in the conflict, the events took place on different temporalities,” Nolan said (via Google translation). “On land, some stayed one week stuck on the beach. On the water, the events lasted a maximum day; And if you were flying to Dunkirk, the British spitfires would carry an hour of fuel. To mingle these different versions of history, one had to mix the temporal strata. Hence the complicated structure; Even if the story, once again, is very simple.”
So I don’t know, should our enthusiasm alter now?
