I haven't seen each fight film ever made, but I have seen scores of 'em. Dieppe - a TV miniseries - is one of the best. Before I discovered it listed here on IMDb I'd been unable to search any mention of it in the standard movie reference books. So chalk up other one for the Internet.All the elements of nice film-making work together here, including cast, script, and direction. What distinguishes Dieppe from all but one or two another fight movies (I'm thinking of The Longest Day and A Bridge Too Far) is its focus on the planning as well as the execution of a military operation - the high brass, all the method up to Winston Churchill in this case, as well as the terrible sods on the sharp end of the spear. That the current Dieppe landing was a disaster - largely the effect of cross-purposes, rivalries, and petty politicking among those in charge - makes this an especially necessary storyline for the generation that thinks Globe Fight II was easy, uncomplicated, and maybe fun. Although British and token U.S. forces were also involved to create the landings a real Allied effort, the Canadians took the brunt of the punishment on the beach. We in the United States need a reminder that our northern neighbors were totally engaged in both Globe Wars.Strategy and politics aside, Dieppe says a gripping real story. Catch it if you can.
With a cast of veteran Canadian actors, Dieppe gives a true-to-life depiction of life in the Canadian Units in WWII from two perspectives; that of the Generals, and that of the footsoldiers. Both were keen on going into action vs the Germans, and the movie is very nice at showing why both groups felt that way.While the action sequences of the last hour may disappoint, especially compared to Saving Personal Ryan, the chaos and carnage of Blue Beach is nonetheless accurately portrayed. One should bemoan the fact that the main landings were not given screen time, but the film is more about the relationships between the senior commanders, and the politics of the Raid. At the same time, a sympathetic and convincing portrayal of the life of the common Canadian soldier in Britain is given as well.Uniforms, weapons and cars are all well researched, though grognards may well search much to mission out.This movie is an exciting, thought-provoking, and convincing portrayal of the Canadian Units in Britain in 1942.
This film is very well done, all in all, in portraying a very touchy, more touchy than something like the bloody Omaha landings for one reason - it didn't work, and casulaties were just as high. This film does a nice job of portraying how the Canadians got the terrible end of the deal, and despite the at times lacking budget, still manages to create out.However, there are a several things which are difficult to stomach. One, is how the film can't seem to decided if it wants to be bloody or not. Was there not enough cash for squibs on the first day of the Dieppe landing scene, but more than enough on the last? I don't receive it.Also, a lot of the combat was just to much confusion. Platoon did a nice job of creating a confusing scene, while still being watchable, but there were parts in this movie where it was to much camera jerking around.All in all, I don't know any another nice movies about the Dieppe invasion, so if it interests you, I recommend you check it out.
