A dramatization of the British Expeditionary Force's 1940 retreat to the beaches of France and the extraordinary seaborne evacuation that saved it from utter destruction by Nazi Germany.
Filmed eighteen years after the events it depicts.
Dunkirk was a great defeat, and a great miracle. It proved, if it proved anything, that we were alone but undivided. No longer were there fighting men and civilians. There were only people. A nation had been made whole.
When the British squad retreats from the farm house, the back window changes from broken, to intact and back to broken.
After the title is shown, it stays on screen while the rest of the opening credits roll.
