So started the new year and back at Abbeygate cinema to see a fantastic film 1917, by Sam Mendes, Set in the Spring of 1917 in northern France, two British soldiers are given a mission to hand deliver a message to the Devonshire regiment calling off the planned attack the following morning. The story then follows the journey across the front line and through to the Devonshire regiment and the two hours shoots by incredibly quickly. What makes this even more appealing is the emotional connection you make to the characters, particularly the lead soldier Schofield played by George MacKay. The one thing that really works really well is the way the film was made in one shot, this works so well.
If you have the time go and see it, also the sort of film that should be shown at school to educate our younger generation.
Looking at my blog looking at last year there are a lot of films that I didn’t talk about will definitely post about those shortly.
