I saw this earlier tonight. Aside from the “one take” gimmick, it’s nothing that we haven’t seen dozens of times before, and they don’t even fully follow through with the gimmick. The dialogue is standard, cliched stuff. The acting and accent by Dean-Charles Chapman was less than convincing. More importantly though, it all felt rather empty. Like a video game, where the characters have to jump through hoops and do challenges to win. I thought Dunkirk did a vaguely similar thing, but in a far less cliched way and much more striking. George MacKay was excellent as usual, and it had a couple of touching moments, but nah. I'm mystified as to why it's being so praised and awarded. Jojo Rabbit did a far better job of showing the horrors of war, but in a wildly different and more entertaining way.
