Very informative "making of" documentary on "Atonement"...
9 April 2008 | by DoylenfSee all my reviews

A behind-the-scenes look at the making of ATONEMENT is divided into several chapters dealing with various aspects of bringing the novel to life. Director Joe Wright dominates with his description of what he was trying to do in having the script follow the novel even more faithfully than it did in the first draft. He's shown directing various scenes with actors JAMES McAVOY, KEIRA KNIGHTLEY and others, explaining how certain effects were wanted.

Make-up artists and costume designers also talk about their work on the film, but the most interesting section deals with the epic Dunkirk scene which had to be photographed in a long five-minute trek of the camera following the three soldiers as they wandered around the area filled with soldiers, horses, fairgrounds, etc. After the scene involving at least a thousand extras as soldiers was filmed, the director thanked the cast and crew for all their hard work at getting exactly what he wanted.

VANESSA REDGRAVE describes how all the inter-connected layers of the story were held together so well by the fine script, praising the novel for being wonderful source material.

Anyone who has seen the film will appreciate the care that went into this documentary.
