It’s little to say that we are waiting for the new film by Christopher Nolan . First of all because, with Dunkerque , Nolan seems to leave his playground (the SF to twist) to flirt with the great classical cinema that inspires him. Then because all his films are jewels of entertainment onmanufactured, which speak volumes about our era and the state of contemporary cinema. Finally, because, as usual, the filmmaker knew how to coat his Dunkirk with an aura of thrilling mystery. In world exclusivity, he unveils this project in the new issue of Première . Through 8 pages of interviews he returns to his cinema, this film and his ambition. Passages and extracts unpublished that will allow to wait …
We also want to tell you that,you can have Dunkirk full movie download online after its release in cinemas on July 2017 or you can also go to cinema near you.
1 / It is a film about the battle of Dunkerque
That’s an excluded person. But Dunkerque is a funny episode of World War II, both victory (evacuation) and symbol of the defeat (of the phoney war). Dunkerque (the film) takes place during the evacuation which took place from 26 May to 4 June 40. After being defeated by the Germans, the British expeditionary force and the French troops were surrounded by the Wermacht. Nearly 400,000 troops on the coast are waiting to be repatriated across the Channel. Impossible mission that will become a turning point of the war.
Christopher Nolan: “This is an essential moment in the history of the Second World War. If this evacuation had not been a success, Great Britain would have been obliged to capitulate. And the whole world would have been lost, or would have known a different fate: the Germans would undoubtedly have conquered Europe, the US would not have returned to war … It is a true point of rupture in war and in history of the world. A decisive moment. And the success of the evacuation allowed Churchill to impose the idea of a moral victory, which allowed him to galvanize his troops like civilians and to impose a spirit of resistance while the logic of this Sequence should have been that of surrender. Militarily it is a defeat; On the human plane it is a colossal victory. ”
2 / It is not the first time that we see these events in the cinema
“The miracle of Dunkirk” has been staged several times, but …
Emma Thomas (producer) : “Never in a modern way, except the incredible shot of Reviens-moi (by Joe Wright ). Chris thought this story had to be told in a modern way. ”
Christopher Nolan: “I did not see the 1958 film ( Dunkirk of Leslie Norman with Richard Attenborough and John Mills ). I did not even know his existence before starting the production of my film. But one of the reasons I wanted to tell this story is that I thought we had to tell this story for today’s audience. I grew up watching movies from British wars, classics like Damn Busters , but that’s different ”
3 / It is not the war movie you expect
With Dunkerque , Nolan abandons the SF, the high-concept films and the mental labyrinths … for what by the fact? A real warrior blockbuster? A Soldier Ryan on the Opal Coast? Not really, no.
Emma Thomas: ” Dunkirk is a film about the survival, hope and experience of war. ”
Christopher Nolan: ” It’s less a war movie than a survival drifted by suspense. I wanted to be in the present moment, to find the immediate intensity to share the experience of these soldiers. The film recounts a series of paradoxical situations. The most obvious: the army is stuck on this beach and must cross the Channel to return to England. But from there, there are others: will a soldier succeed in reaching the mole? Will the pilot be able to carry out his mission? And the film focuses on suspense sequences that are reduced to a human dimension. ”
4 / There is little dialogue
“You are in a dream” in Inception . “Some men just want to watch the world burn” Dark Knight … From Memento to Inception or Interstellar , at Nolan the big scenes and situations often go through dialogue or voice-over. We talk to Christopher Nolan . A lot. But not in Dunkirk …
Lee Smith: “The editing was more complicated because there is little dialogue”
Christopher Nolan: “The empathy for the characters has nothing to do with their story. I did not want to go through the dialogue, tell the story of my characters. The problem is not who they are, who they claim to be or where they come from. The only question I was interested in was: Will they get out of it? Will they be killed by the next bomb while trying to join the mole? Or will they be crushed by a boat while crossing? ”
5 / Everything started with an image
Sometimes everything starts from a script (the first part of the script written by Jonathan Nolan for Spielberg – Interstellar ) or an idea of staging ( backtracking – Memento ). But the desire to make Dunkerque comes from elsewhere .
Christopher Nolan: “Emma (Thomas) made me read a book on the evacuation of Dunkerque, but the idea of the film is part of an image: the mole. The vision of soldiers massed on this pier, one kilometer long and 2.5 meters wide, struck me. She spoke to me like an elemental image . A primal image, something I had not seen before. An image that has a very strong allegorical force. It haunted me. I had never heard of this pier. ”
6 / It is an immersive film
Nolan is a demiurge filmmaker. He invented worlds of dreams in which he plunged his spectators as dropped as his characters; He reduced the universe to a library where we were stuck with Matthew McConaughey … all his artistic approach is to embark us in his delusions. There, it is the warrior experience, but the goal is the same:
Christopher Nolan: “I wanted to see the surprise, the frustration of the forces stuck in Dunkerque. Someone who arrived on the beach in May 40 had no idea of the number, the facts, any historical perspective and that, it must have been terrifying. It was a Kafka situation. Huge tails that lie down and no one to tell you what to do, how, to whom to address … Feeling we are in the wrong place. And we’re probably going to die … just because we’re here. That’s what I wanted the viewer to go through. ”
7 / There are three stories
Far from his narrative volutes or his dives inside the mass consciousness, did Nolan finally realize a simple film? The trailer, the incredible prologue and (incidentally) the first cover of Première suggest that the architecture of the film could be complex. There will be three points of view. The soldiers on the beach (with Harry Styles ); That of the navy (with Cillian Murphy and Mark Rylance , symbol of the involvement of civilians in the rescue) and finally that of the aviation (the incredible scene of the air combat with Tom Hardy snipe the messerschmidt could be the climax of the film ). Confirmation:
Christopher Nolan: “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. 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 mix these different versions of history, we had to mix the temporal strata. Hence the complicated structure; Even if the story, once again, is very simple. ”
