So meta. So meta. You can have your sweeping epic and still be an art film. Clever. I enjoyed this but wasn't blown away by it. I really don't have much to say about this one other than I know that Keira Knightley has been getting a lot of attention for looking stunning in that green dress but I prefer her in that old timey bathing suit she was in near the beginning. Scrumptious.
I'm a sucker for these kinds of movies to be honest - love stories set during wartime. Hell, I remember liking The English Patient back in '96 but have no idea if I'd still like it. Of the recent ones, I'd probably put this a little ahead of A Very Long Engagement but behind The End of the Affair.
I dug the soundtrack that was heavily based at times on the clicking of typewriter keys - all so very Matmos.
Also, in general give me more movies that have scenes set during the Battle of Dunkirk. Fascinating stuff.
