Dunkirk director Christopher Nolandidn’t let the cast use water bottles or chairs while filming, according to Mark Rylance.
“[Christopher] does things like he doesn’t like having chairs on set for actors or bottles of water, he’s very particular,” the 57-year-old actor told the Independent.
Mark‘s co-star Barry Keoghan explained Christopher‘s reasoning behind the decisions.
“They’re distractions – the noise of [the bottles], they’re like toys almost, playing around with toys,” he shared. “[The lack of chairs] keeps you on your toes, literally.”
Mark added that Christopher is “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.”
