To get there, though, they must navigate life-threatening enemy terrains.
All filmed in one extraordinary single take (by cinematographer Roger Deakins) 1917 gets to the heart of what the soldiers are really seeing, experiencing and enduing. Already hailed as an Oscar contender its and claimed to be Mendes masterpiece 1917 is the war movie to end all war movies.
