Evacuation of Allied soldiers from the British Empire, and France, who were cut off and surrounded by the German army from the beaches and harbor of Dunkirk, France, between May 26- June 04, 1940, during Battle of France in World War II. Written by
The parallels between the experiences of Mark Rylance's small boat and that of "Sundowner" (taken to Dunkirk by Commander C.H. Lightoller, DSC, RNR (Retd)) can be read on pages 201-203 of "Dunkirk" by A.D.Divine (published in 1945). Lightoller (previously second officer and most senior surviving crew member of RMS Titanic) took as crew his son and a sea scout; he picked up survivors from a returning motor cruiser and took them back to Dunkirk "giving them the additional pleasure of again facing the hell they had only just left"; his youngest son (lost flying his Blenheim in the first air raid on Wilhelmshaven) had previously given him advice on evasive tactics and he used them to evade an aircraft which gave up its attack after three unsuccessful attempts to fire on Sundowner; and the stoker P.O. assisting disembarkation of 130 men did ask where he had put them. One surprise is that several equally dramatic incidents in this account were not used in the film, so perhaps they were working from a different version of Lightoller's story. See more »
After Farrier (played by Tom Hardy) sets his plane on fire with a flare gun to prevent the Germans from capturing the technology, and the plane slowly burns to the ground, the propeller of the aircraft is attached only to a long shaft in place of where the engine would be. There is no engine in the plane/prop. Even in a fire, the solid metal engine block would be present and not melt. See more »

I was expecting an epic film from all the hype and trailers. The number of evacuees didn't resemble the real images of the exodus that took place at Dunkirk. The numbers were thinned down for this film, maybe 10,000 heads compared to 390,000 missing from the screen. the film was purely smoke and mirrors when it came to the soundtrack, repetitive and leaving you expecting something was going to happen... I feel at utterly disappointed when it ended.
