Realizing that the past in the young have been working extremely unusual and original Director Terry Gilliam, I decided to catch up and see first with picture 12 monkeys.

And here I say - well, and the film! Depressing, bleak, and emotional. Heavy the story of how great time sent in the past to prevent the spread of a deadly virus destroyed five billion people on earth, but the more time he holds the past, the more wondering whether his mission or he's just a paranoid schizophrenic, in than trying to convince others. Oppressive sense of despair, cripta, the General atmosphere of madness - this film is great, but definitely not uplifting. All has to  ' 90s as it was very bleak with performances of the future.

The actors worked very hard, Bruce Willis has proven itself worthy of the dramatic role of his companion, charming and very persuasive performance of Brad pitt reminded of Heath Ledger, and I a great compliment.

The plot holds the voltage up to the end, the intrigue is not lost to end of the paradoxes he hell of a mess. The entire film is not feeling like watching the adaptation of a renowned novel written by the venerable NF author, which has more meanings than you for a time to digest.

9 10

Still not nothing is a classic of the genre, and clear evidence of skills Gilliam as storyteller and visionary.

Compared to that Terry Gilliam twists in"the Imaginarium of doctor Parnassus" "12 monkeys," just two and two.

Movie of the category "poraskinut brains". About the end you can guess what I got made.

Bruce Willis saves the world, but not as is usually makes. Here it, uh, more plausible, humane.

Brad pitt is a miracle crazy. We all have crazy in the coconut. And the red and the gestures are choppy, and it's fast. To pitt are cool, but he good.

We are safely led around by the nose half of the film, directing the scent. About who on really the culprit, guess is also possible.

And these things movement in time I like.

The film keeps a light tension makes slightly strain the brain.

The end is ambiguous. There will choose you personally for themselves as you like.

As any movie of such a plan leaves questions. For example, who were where did this man? Alter they are the future or not?

Brilliant soundtrack. Better than this music it was impossible to imagine.

P. S. many, Many psychology. I just did thinking the theme of madness and do it at all.

In this film about the death of mankind is not will be shown of suffering, pleas for life and steampunk. The however I think it will be appreciated by all, as fans of this kind of pictures, so and just those who are looking in the evening. The creation of Terry Gilliam's don't just out of a number of such films, tape and the original.

Let's start with main — storyline. With the first moments we draw a picture of a very gloomy future, 2035, of deadly virus that hit all live people live under the ground. Main hero — James Cole (Bruce Willis) is not just the inhabitants of these dark tunnels he still is there in jail. Surprisingly, the pathetic remnants of humanity in the film kept the mind and hold one day hope to go on the surface of the earth. For that they send scum like this Cole up as subjects and then find a way to move Cole in time order the past to change the future, with the only tip — the name of a mysterious group of "12 monkeys".

Immediately catches the eye cool atmosphere, as themselves both dungeon and surface. I felt the hopelessness of the situation that you just expect these paintings. So else I want to note karpovye costumes of the future technology of the time, given the relatively small budget and year of filming, looks quite.

The authors clearly seek to show that all the future is not trouble is already to a complete collapse, even the machine for of time fails and they constantly carries not there information they normally produce is not can. Only one James (Bruce) working as hours, climbs themselves of the past in the future. Although really the whole movie its character suffers. Suffering mentally, so since initially not understand that he should do in General really do what is happening with him. Physically, too, have a hard time, all these teleportation is no "the Terminator", where time and everything! There still local, well think for yourself, to you area or the house comes a naked man with poor coordination and said that he future we all in danger, of course in  the yellow house he road. And that's as if there opens one Chapter of the film — crazy, crazy. And the main event in this Chapter is Jeffrey Goines (Brad pitt). As all schizophrenic, he -his genius, to take at least his monologue about the consumer society, it because some sense prophetic. And that important, Goines is a certain starter, if you will, that the spark that starts all movement film. The story of how would receive acceleration but also more confused. And we are investigating already with character, Madeline stone, a bold girl and psychiatrist part-time. As a specialist it is simply obliged to prove that everything that happens is only a fruit of the inflamed imagination it charges. But as a person, as the girl, her I want to believe Cole, I want to help him to cope with the situation. And here at this inner conflict she was sitting in almost the entire movie. Actually, I think the actors enough hard was their role. Especially Willis, because it to the time was a way everhaunting man with an impenetrable gaze, then we see it completely the other role and it's great. Although I still more like the character brad pitt, well, too unusual colorful look and facial expressions and dialogues, everything very consistent. He she even revealed to me a new hand after this film — just Bravo. A character Madeline stone great complements and made something common in this Orgy of madness. Though so all definitely? When you keep going back and forth, from the joyous feelings that finally can happen to complete hopelessness, a feeling that he part of losing your mind. And ending, it is like escapes, leaves from a number of questions. Please, not Google it immediately, try to reach themselves, because different vision and the ending can also be for everyone.

So the film is most unique, interesting and viewing recommended me.
