Award-winning director Same Mendes teams up with renowned cinematographer Roger Deakins for this elaboratively choreographed WWI drama.
Based on the real-life experiences of Mendes’ grandfather, 1917 follows two young soldiers – Schofield and Blake on their perilous mission to deliver a warning message to save another regiment from a German ambush. Among the 1,600 men whose lives are at risk is Blake’s own brother, making the race against time even more tense and emotionally charged. Set over just two hours of one day in Spring 1917, and never leaving the sides of Schofield and Blake, it is stunningly presented as a one take shot in real time.
It’s staggering storytelling and simply must be experienced in the cinema.
