COMMENTS: THE HISTORICAL ACTION DRAMA "DUNKIRK" EXPLORES THEMES OF WAR, BATTLE, SURVIVAL, RESCUE, COURAGE, TRIUMPH OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT, HOPE AND TEAMWORK, WITHIN THE HISTORICAL CONTEXT OF WORLD WAR II. THESE THEMES ARE COMPLEX AND MATURE, AND THERE IS A STRONG SENSE OF EMOTIONAL TENSION, SUSPENSE, THREAT AND MENACE, REPRESENTED BY THE ENEMY FORCES WHO ARE INTENT ON KILLING THE ALLIED FORCES. THEMES ARE PRESENTED IN A REALISTIC MANNER WITH THE SENSE OF SUSPENCE AND TENSION BEING MAXIMISED BY CINEMATOGRAPHIC TECHNIQUES SUCH AS LOW FREQUENCY SOUND, LIMITED DIALOGUE AND HIGH ANGLE SHOTS- EMPHASISING THE VULNERABILITY OF THOSE SOLDIERS TRAPPED ON THE GROUND.
THEMES HAVE HISTORICAL AND EDUCATIONAL VALUE, AND CONTAIN INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGES, BUT ARE NEVERTHELESS LIKELY TO CONFUSE, UPSET AND DISTURB VIEWERS UNDER THE AGE OF 16 YEARS, EVEN CARRYING THE RISK OF PSYCHOLOGICAL HARM IN VIEWERS WHO ARE NOT YET MATURE ENOUGH TO TOLERATE AND DEAL WITH STRONG EMOTIONS AND THE STRESS OF TENSION AND SUSPENSE.
