A great Canadian WWII movie
20 January 2001 | by The movie manSee all my reviews

I think Dieppe is not only a great WWII movie, but also the only really good Canadian movie out there. The way it blends the stories of the different soldiers with the story of the generals is very well done, and the fact that you know what happens at the end just makes it more powerful and compelling. And the battle scene is superb. Steven Speilberg totally copied it when he did the beach scene in Saving Private Ryan. Sure, he added more explosions and gore (he had a bigger budget), but personally I think Dieppe's battle scene is better than Saving Private Ryan's, because you know the characters and you care about what happens to them, unlike Saving Private Ryan where you're seeing them for the first time. Very good movie.
