YouTube account Like Stories of Old has reimagined last summer’s war epic Dunkirk by director Christopher Nolan as an eight-minute black & white silent film. What started as an essay exploring the director’s visual storytelling and silent film influences, turned into a highlight video of the entire two-plus film devoid of all its dialogue and exposition.

Flickering film reel effects, sped-up frames, and a militaristic score of the period pieces of olde were added to the footage for authenticity.
