\'1917\' movie review: A do-not-miss fare directed by Sam Mendes

Movie: '1917'

Director: Sam Mendes
IANS Rating: **** (4 stars)

The premise of "1917" is sweet, simple and straightforward. Two young soldiers are given the task of sneaking through enemy line in order to deliver a message to the commander of another unit, which will, in turn save thousands of lives if the message is received in time.

The narrative begins on April 6, 1917, on the frontlines in the middle of World War I.

After telephone lines have been cut off, two ordinary British Soldiers, Lance Corporals Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) and Schofield (George Mackay), are summoned by General Erinmore and tasked to hand-deliver a message to the 2nd Battalion of the Devonshire Regiment.

The military unit would be walking into a trap, if they do not receive this crucial message in a few hour. Sixteen hundred men would lose their lives, including Blake's older brother.

The duo have only a few hours before the fateful attack is launched and must traverse into enemy territory that may not have been deserted as they have been lead to believe.
