CNET France’s opinion
When Sam Mendes, was a managerAmerican beautyAnd sky fall And ghostDeciding to make a film about the First World War, and in honor of one of his predecessors, this can only make an exceptional, unique and profound work, and a formidable proposal for cinema.
Especially since this is the true story of two British soldiers who find themselves starring in an amazing process: the idea of a war movie in one two-hour take. if in the end, 1917 Is a “wrong” sequential shot (more like 35 long scenes, the most important being 9 minutes), the experience remains great and total immersion.
From scenes of relaxation between soldiers, to scenes of intense combat, passing through scenes of more intimate walks or moments of rest, 1917 It dominates the spectator without letting him go until the end, revealing an unrelenting countdown and heightening tension at the same time.
Far from ambitious with its directing bias, it is above all a gallery of characters who remain at the fore, like many of the small human stories captured in the big story. A simple soldier or officer, a humble mother or a German foe all lend a poignant dimension to this great war story. Moreover, the cast of the film is also impressive: discoveries George MacKay and Dean Charles Chapman rub shoulders with excellent Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Strong and Andrew Scott.
A breathtaking war movie with a magical image for a unique experience. 1917 is a must-see movie on the largest screens, and will not leave you indifferent.
