All the building signs at the German airbase where the mustard gas is loaded into the bomber are in French, and so is the writing on the blackboard inside the command tower/office where Diana and Ludendorff fight. This makes sense given the geographical location of the base, namely Belgium where all military writings at this time were still in French instead of the Flemish (Dutch) spoken by many of the soldiers.

I used to want to save the world, this beautiful place. But I was so naive then.

There's a lot that went into "Wonder Woman"; it's partially a romantic comedy, coming-of-age story, period action/superhero movie, but maybe above all, a love story. Diana Prince gears up ultimately out of love - which doesn't sound like something that'd fit very well in a war movie. Part of the reason this movie is so good is that it had big boots to fill. The DC movies haven't been stellar up to this point, and their inherent dreariness hasn't helped matters. And here's a movie with competent direction, gorgeous visuals and a lead actress that's fully up to the challenge. Gal Gadot instills in her character honor, innocence, and the necessary color to really bring a comic book movie to the screen.
In other words, it's everything I was hoping for in a Wonder Woman film. It doesn't feel like it was ground out of a sausage factory, and really manages to do everything right. Just to give context, this is coming from a guy who's pretty burnt out on the genre.
I loved this movie.
