A retreat has no ‘Chinese values’ – Dunkirk movie comes under fire in China

Calls have been made in China to boycott the British war film Dunkirk after it was subjected to a heavy bombardment from critics who said a “disastrous retreat” does not conform with “Chinese values”.

The film came under fire not only for its portrayal of an un-Chinese evacuation, but also for glorifying General Sir Harold Alexander.

Gen Alexander, who helped oversee the 1940 ‘miracle of Dunkirk’, is considered a war hero in the UK, but is despised by some in China due to a belief that he caused the death of thousands of Chinese soldiers.

    Talk about the chinese exhibiting cognitive dissonance – mao their glories leader kill a wee bit more than thousands of chinese soldiers – he killed millions…

    • Human wave tactics. They employed them during the Korean War.

    Ideological rigidity makes you retarded and this is why China will never never surpass the west.

      China only need to tread water and wait, since our politicians, globalists and the Left are destroying the West on their own.

      No! That was an advance to the rear!

    • canminuteman

      Yep. That was my first thought as I was reading the story.

      How they hate Mao today, won’t even speak his foul name

  • ontario john

    I’m sure little Justin will ban the movie in Canada, once he gets the word from China.

  • “Live to fight another day” isn’t a Chinese value. Whodathunk it?

  • Alain

    The atheist communist government claiming to know what Chinese values are is as ridiculous as Trudeau claiming to know what our values are. I say there are other reasons that the commies find offensive or perhaps threatening but aren’t about to admit. The Reds did everything in their power to stamp out and eliminate Chinese culture and values and have not reformed themselves.

      Spot on. They are essentially an anti-Confucian gang of criminals who managed to take over political power.

    And the great retreat of1936 or 37?
    When Mao had to flee the nationalist and went to the centre of China in the mountains.
