Allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire and France are surrounded by the German Army, and evacuated during a fierce battle in World War II.
Around one thousand extras were used during the shoot.
The enemy tanks have stopped.
Captain Winnant: Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick us off from the air like a fish in a barrel?
One of the authentic Little Ships that appear in the film is clearly named 'RIIS I.' However, at the real Dunkirk evacuation, this boat was appeared with the name 'White Heather;' she was only renamed 'RIIS I' in 1949, 9 years after Dunkirk and 4 years after the war.
There are no opening credits, except for the film's title.
