  1. Hmm, am I the only one concerned that in the trailers so far, we haven't seen any uniform that isn't British, or heard voice that wasn't English?
    I mean, it's not like they're in France fighting the Germans...

    Hopefully that's not representative of the final movie, otherwise I get a bad feeling. All the great war movies about "big events" like this - "The Longest Day", "Tora! Tora! Tora!", "A Bridge Too Far", and many others - had done diligence by giving allies, enemies, and everyone in between a face and a voice, and typically more than a cardboard-cutout personality, too. Now, something like "Das Boot" may be excused because it's about people locked in a submarine nearly the entire time - but even based on the "Dunkirk" trailer, I already see it jumping points of view between at least 3 different characters, all of them British.

    No doubt the event itself is a British story first - but it's also a French story in a huge way (it wasn't 400,000 Brits trying to get home on that beach - it was 200,000 boots and about 140,000 French troops and a small number of other allies that got off that beach, and 35,000 French troops that fought as rearguard, allowing the rest to evacuate). And yes, it's predominantly a story of British sailors and ordinary civilians running a gauntlet to the rescue - but about 20% of the shipping involved would've been French as well. Now, the RAF can be rightly credited with providing virtually all air cover, at great sacrifice - but the Luftwaffe weren't just vultures strafing helpless troops with Stuka sirens wailing. There was a German story here, too.

    So, fingers crossed that the trailer is just an odd cut, and things with the actual movie aren't as bad as they seem...
