    10 / 10

    Nolan's war is not primarily heroic or action-packed, but rather human. A wonderful piece of film that confirms that Christopher Nolan will most likely be remembered as one of the greatest filmmakers of our time.

    10 / 10

    Christopher Nolan's brilliant film career spans from subtle indie mysteries like Memento and Following to Hollywood superhero sagas like The Dark Knight or science-fiction epics like Inception or Interstellar. Here he manages to excellently combine the bombastic with the more fine-grained.

    A nervous, cold and visually unparalleled account of a group of soldiers during the Second World War.

    8.7 / 10

    In any case, the film is fantastic, both as a cinematic art form, film technique and as a vision of war. And as an experience, it is nothing short of unforgettable.

    8.3 / 10

    Dunkirk is an overwhelming film to digest. Christopher Nolan's penetrating study of existential chaos has fantastic cinematography, brilliant music, and excellent performances.

    Dunkirk feels incredibly authentic, but something that diminishes the sense of reality is how Nolan avoids showing blood.

    Dunkirk is skillfully unpleasant

    8 / 10

    Christopher Nolan's film about the evacuation of Dunkirk is an incredibly claustrophobic story. Johan Croneman is pinned to the chair by both fear and despair.

    6.6 / 10

    Calle Wahlström has seen Christopher Nolan's other World War II drama Dunkirk, a mostly impressive sleight of hand of blood, sweat and tears that is also shown in the recently retired 70mm format - at least if you live in one of the country's three largest cities.

    It is in many ways an impressive film. Dramatic and traumatic events happen constantly, and there are small, beautiful and sometimes powerful details here and there.
