M-Net (channel 101) will screen the excellent production Dunkirk on September 16 at 20h05.

In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.

Visionary director Christopher Nolan revisits the historical battle of Dunkirk in this Oscar-winning war drama, about a devastating combat that turned the tide of World War II. Rating: 16VL|War
