Novelties of cinema. What to watch in day off on May 13? “Gloomy shadows“, etc.
In spite of the fact that global May holidays flew by and in line lonely day off, the stream of film novelties does not weaken. However, all debutants of hire, including the new movie of Tim Burton “Gloomy shadows“ with Johnny Depp, risk to remain in the shadow of marvelovsky “Avengers“.
The superheroic comic book continues victorious procession along the planet, both nobody and anything can interfere with this process yet.
The company to “Gloomy shadows“ will be kept by the Australian adventure movie “Hunter“ with Uillem Defoe`s participation, two French comedies, the newest version of “Tom Sawyer“ from Germany and a couple of animation projects. And now is more detailed:
1. “Gloomy shadows“ (Dark Shadows, 2012)
Burton and Depp`s Creative tandem - one of the strongest in modern Hollywood. The close friendship of the director and actor continues to please admirers, giving all new film images. Depp will play in the eighth joint project (for the first time film figures met on a shooting stage “Edward of a hand - scissors“ in far 1990 - m) … the vampire.
The recovered after a two-centuries dream, hereditary nobleman and in combination the vampire, Barnabas Collins, with surprise looks at the changed world of the second half of the XX century. Its, once magnificent, possession came to desolation, and few descendants - concourse of losers. Also the harmful witch who strongly became embittered couples centuries ago on loveful Barnabas and turned that in immortal, but the bloodsucker is living. Now to the vampire it is necessary not only to adapt to new realities, but also to cross swords to old foes.
Johnny Depp at “the main gloomy storyteller“ of Hollywood regularly represents somewhat eccentric characters. Tut and Edward of a hand - scissors, both the Mad Hatter, and famous Willie Wonka, and oddish Ikabod Crane from “A sleepy hollow“. In other words, normal types at Burton for the friend are not. Perhaps it and to the best because Depp`s invoice is simply created for such experiments. And “Gloomy shadows“ - to that the excess proof.
2. “Hunter“ (The Hunter, 2011)
of the Hunter - the single employs powerful biotechnological corporation for searches of the last copy of the most rare animal - the Australian or Tasmanian tiger. This look is considered the missing from a face of Earth, but the task is set, so it is necessary to carry out. The problem is that to find an animal is only half-troubles. Around searches of an unfortunate tiger the bother is developed unhealthy, and, apparently, which - who does not want at all that this transaction took place.
At a tape of the debutant Daniel Nettkheym there are a lot of pluses. In - the first, participation of bright characteristic actors Uillem Defoe and Sam Neil, whose game is decoration of any movie. In - the second, nontrivial execution of a plot, simple on a plot, about the lonely hunter. In - the third, a competent music line and the most beautiful views of Australia. And, certainly, graceful joining of the drama and adventures where much attention is paid to each genre. All this does Nettkheym`s work unlike stamped Hollywood tapes.
3. “Chief“ (Comme un chef, 2012)
the Cook to the cook - discord. When catastrophic absence of new ideas is found in the venerable restaurateur and the culinary specialist Alexander (Jean Reno), it is come to the rescue by talented, but obstinate “genius“ (Mikael Jun). These two are in great need in each other, but cannot categorically get on in one kitchen. But it is necessary, one needs to maintain reputation and to have a reputation for the ideological innovator, and another sharply wants recognition.
The brilliant duet of two French performers will not leave the viewer indifferent. As usual, French are able and like to shoot situation comedies, and Jean Reno more than once proved that he equally successfully combines an image of a hokhmach and the severe hero of fighters.
4. “The love lives three years“ (L’amour dure trois ans, 2011)
If Daniel Cohen`s “Chief“ nominally treats the French mainstream, then Frederik Beigbeder`s tape - a peculiar opposition. The reckless, light romantic comedy about the journalist who is sincerely believing in transience of fine feeling. Its first book - the story that the morning sun never lasts a day and happiness inevitably withers under routine of domestic squabbles and habit. Trouble, considering that the manuscript gets to his beloved who is not glad to foreknow at all, than their passionate novel will end.
Beigbeder became famous for the script for the movie “99 francs“. “The love lives three years“ - its first work as the director, and therefore producers were afraid to entrust the beginning director how many - nibud the famous performers. The invitation to the leading female role of Louise Burguan from “Extraordinary adventures Adele“ became an exception. As well as “99 francs“, a new tape of Beigbeder is a cinema not for all. At the Frenchman is the, pronounced stylistics of the narration which are sharply contrasting with habitual canons of the French romantic comedies.
5. “Tom Sawyer“ (Tom Sawyer, 2011)
Appears, Germans are able not only to rivet teenage “ comedies of ants in trousers“, but also it is quite successful to turn children`s classics. In the same places where Anthony Minghella in 2003 removed “The cold mountain“, 8 years later cinematographers from Germany addressed the legendary novel of Mark Twain “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Geklberri Fynn“. And even received a local award for an essential contribution to promoting of children`s cinema. By the way, quite deservedly.
It is remembered, in the USSR there is a positive experience of the screen version of work of Twain too. And, certainly, it will be unusual to domestic viewer to look at new faces of heroes. Someone can even prefer the Soviet three-serial masterpiece of Stanislav Govorukhin and will be in own way right. As they say, old friends and old wine are best.
And now about other beginners of the Russian hire. You will laugh, but “Olympic village“ Aleksandra Sukhareva for the fourth time tries to get to a rolling grid of movie theaters. The tape removed in 2009 for the unclear reasons persistently fights for a place in the sun, but will not break to the viewer in any way. And it seems idea quite good, and solid cast (Efremov, Buldakov, Garkalin, Hazanov and so forth) but the destiny at the movie does not develop in any way. And guarantees that it will develop this time - too any.
For the audience of small age film distribution will offer two animated films. It is South Korean “Brave Lifi“ about adventures of a chicken and duckling, and also French of “Emilie Joly“ , narrating about the little girl who, like famous kerrollovsky Alice, goes following not for a white, but blue rabbit.
Next week in Russia there will be “Dictator“, the next provocative opus of the famous American comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, and also the fantastic fighter according to Luc Besson`s scenario “Regardless of obstacles“ with participation of Australian Guy Pearce (“Remember“, “Secrets of Los - Andzheles“).
