There is some romance in the Apocalypse, and the lives of two sisters in a fabulous canadian forest acquires its poetry. This the movie is not about survival, not the end of the world, and just about the relationship between the two girls in the current difficult situation. The film fascinated me the lack of a predictable narrative, because this story could be told in a completely different way — with an intriguing plot, a culmination and logical conclusion. It was possible to show the clash of two ways of thinking — rational sensual, because our heroines are so different, such different sisters. Shouts, quarrels or even blood for the sake of protecting personal interests in terms of survival. Expected, but but spectacular. This picture is completely devoid of entertainment, but you have to be foolish to put it in reproach. The film is thoroughly imbued with the atmosphere of melancholy and even danger of the Apocalypse not able to destroy it. The background orchestral music touches the soul, especially in knowing the heroine of the picture were forced to live without it.

Lonely house in the woods, two beautiful girls and the difficulties that they have to overcome together, and only together. The magnificent landscapes, beautiful faces, ballet Nouveau and touching music — that is this picture. And it does not matter where you're headed sisters, or what was the cause of the accident — important only in the atmosphere. And the film because this is not become less interesting.

If you not my sister, and you no sisters, and you are not had a sister — In the forest for you will be a real challenge. But if you miss all the sarcasm earlier, Patricia Rozema has been a good history, which unfortunately more will affect only a part of the audience, and those are able to feel the whole meaning of the transmitted story.

Formally, the action develops really very very the near future, you can even risk to say in two or three years, but this the whole story plays a minor role, and is the only reason for what is happening. Apocalypse in no picture, although the rampant chaos has covered the people after the blackout, then two sisters their father remained in his remote country house.

By and large, pictures about the development of boys men galore and in most cases they are very informative and good. Therefore, I believe that the female part also has the right to history and ABC's about growing up the young girls and their growing up. Another thing is that accidentally fell in front of the screen the viewer is no interest theme — unlikely will be able to appreciate this film, and even more to enjoy it.

Alas, watching coped with labour, although I think it is not only mine merit, and and Director, who has made quite a dull and sluggish your movie. As result — only those who really want to watch this movie, curiosity and killing time suggest to enjoy this one.

Starting to watch this movie looking for a mixed assessment and feedback, involuntarily feel a film critic, which is view the time you have to think that write response to the picture. One of the few movies that made me think three times before clearly say it is bad, or good.

The film is based on based on the novel "Into the forest" in 1996, and as I don't had a chance to read it, write treceno from comparison of the book and the actual film.


The history of painting tells us about the near future (although there is the first question arises: where the signs of the future?, of course at the time of the publication of the novel in 1996 there was flat TVs, voice assistants and smartphones from each person in 2015 it is already not a luxury but a routine). Two sisters trying to survive in the so-called "Apocalypse", consisting in the widespread power outage. And as people in this "future" is not able to live without their electric devices, respectively, and they need to learn to survive in the new to them atmosphere. By the way for displaying elements of the adaptation of adolescents under the harsh conditions of life without electricity, $ 10 minutes of screen time. Well, okay, it was all frame they are using books on survival learned to survive. These books by the way, which at the time of universal access to the Internet, have kept POPs sisters. Apparently, he knew preparing for this coincidence as the Apocalypse.

Well and generally if to tell about the story of the film, it is very crude, but the in no good stocks, from which feyspalmy fly packs face. Perhaps the motivation of some actions of the characters do not very clear. For example, the irresistible urge to dance music one of the sisters, even when a critical shortage of fuel for the generator. Of course not for me to judge women's thoughts in those or other difficult situations, the author of the novels probably knows better about it, so as is a woman. But generally, if not dropped to such jambs, then you get quite a good, seasoned a dramatic story, in the center of which is a different sort of experience girls.


The main actors in the film as not especially popular, except for Ellen Paige (who managed to light up in a pair of three big projects), but questions to their work is absolutely not occur. A very large palette of emotions issued to them to believe that want to experience. And certainly I want to mention the fact that due to the physique and "baby" to Ellen page in its 28 years, it can play the girl-the teenager, and easily change roles to more serious roles.

the camera work and the soundtrack

When a job is well done, questions and NIT-picking does not occur. In this case, as it is in order. A high level of shooting, editing and all the technical Department of the film. The soundtrack is also incredibly good, so like the drama he is written very well, and most importantly with focus on the experiences of the characters.


In the end, it should be noted that this movie is not about survival in the woods at the time of the Apocalypse, and not the synopsis for the series "the Walking dead". And something separate, melodramatic expression of women's experiences associated with different kinds of tragedies that have occurred with them. Movie-the expression of female behavior associated with family, survival and protection.

Underrated, dramatic, full of strong scenes experiences to the main characters of the picture, with a great soundtrack and lots of emotions.
