1917 written by Sam Medes and Krysty Wilson-Cairns, directed by Sam Mendes. At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers.
1917 is an achievement in immersive film making,
impressive film editing, cinematography and set design. A great film balancing
the tension and coldness of war with deep human emotions.
The film was captivating throughout the whole two hours.
A must see movie with unexpected plot turns.
