The French are pissed
about their minor role in 'Dunkirk'

The French are furious over a new historical movie that, they say, diminishes their country's role in a World War II evacuation.

"Dunkirk," the Christopher Nolan-directed film that hit theaters last week, shows a "scathing rudeness [and] deplorable indifference" toward France for its role in the Dunkirk evacuation of 1940, said a blistering review in the French newspaper Le Monde.

"Where in the film are the 120,000 French soldiers who were also evacuated from Dunkirk?" critic Jacques Mandelbaum wrote. "Where are the 40,000 who sacrificed themselves to defend the city against a superior enemy in weaponry and numbers?"

For the home crowd -- France does need to make its own version.
