In an interview actor, Mark Rylance shares How it was like to work with Christopher Nolan, He says he and his co-actors Fionn Whitehead, Harry Styles and Tom Hardy were not even allowed to have chairs and water bottles on sets. He also said that Nolan, as a director, has many whimseys.
Dunkirk, which is Christopher’s tenth feature film, achieving huge success. The Actor’s words about his director were: “Very much so; he’s very particular about using film and everything being real in front of the camera, so there were a lot of old techniques used in this film to make it look real. The flames on the water and men swimming in them; he really wants to minimize the amount of post-production and CGI stuff,” Rylance further said, “He does things like he doesn’t like having chairs on set for actors or bottles of water, he’s very particular.”
When Dunkirk’s cast was asked about ‘why Christopher didn’t allow chairs and water bottles?’, Mark’s co-star Barry Keoghan said, “They’re distractions — the noise of (the bottles), they’re like toys almost, playing around with toys. (The lack of chairs, meanwhile) keeps you on your toes, literally.”
The Movie has been a roaring success. It is based on famous Dunkirk Evacuation during second World War. Hundreds of thousands of Allied soldiers were stuck in Dunkirk, France and were surrounded by German soldiers. That’s when the evacuation of Allied soldiers from the beaches and harbour of Dunkirk, in the north of France was done.
Christopher Nolan, who is also known for his other popular films like The Dark Knight trilogy, Inception, The Prestige, and Interstellar, is also famous for using practical effects and he tries to keep his movies from using too much computer generated imagery and digitally generated effects for the sake of realism.
