Lady Bird

Her hair is painted in a strange red-pink color, and the name Lady bird she gave herself and so asks her to call.

All this charming in its simplicity and unpretentiousness of the ribbon conquers even the experienced cinephile: a few half-hearted directing, not allow excessive dynamics in the mise EN scene, editing and camera work, and careful details of acting work of the performers-average people (except, of course, is Saoirse Ronan, who even in his young age shines like a real star), and trivial script about growing up with a rather banal message. That should be a real film debut: simple and very important of the author. How much Gerwig refers to his characters, not allowing even the slightest of sneers of cold detachment and criticism in their address, with a slight feeling of empathy for all the characters, setting and plot, gives her diligent student Noah the Baumbach.

For passing over thirty, the Director is now balanced, whitewash rather than denigrating, to describe a hypothetical young heroine, in which the outlines of her own destiny. Christine "Lady bird" — typical teenager, trying to oppose the adult world and reach the parents, but does it generally non-aggressive and neptana. Once in the Catholic school, she at first rebels, but eventually succumbing to the charm of teachers — the same people, and not dry formalists and hypocrites. In the years when Hollywood everything kicks Christianity, to see the accuracy in his image is very important in the Catholic school is also put musicals, joke and berate, and not punished.

First love, failed romances Lady bird, her conflict mother, friendship with classmates — all so simple and or not claim is that charm the first scene. It would seem that many movies were there about growing up! Even "Amarcord" is partially about this. But Herwig impossible to tell a trivial non-trivial, fresh, new, and that's what is this novelty to not understand that simple. Most likely that even the standards of independent cinema, Gerwig takes on their own, Author, out template (this distinguishes "Little women" — definitely a step forward terms of artistic and professional growth in compared "Lady bird").

This newness applies to absolutely nitriansky moments in narrative, that, on that even She has not once decided, then there is a (partial, incomplete, though) disregard the plot fascinating. For Herwig it is important to tell the story as she wants, but not as is customary, but despite such courage in the opening, he not dreary no gaps and failures. He rhythm, props, realistic interiors, street shooting give "Lady bird" a very modest budget (in costume "Little women" that have not) that is also fascinating. The student atmosphere of the film coincides with the plot, because they also — about the study. Therefore, if you external unpretentiousness in the debut Gerwig form isomorphic to the content that can be rarely seen even in artists.

When an updated feminism of Little women, for those who saw "Lady bird" after them, expect the same here, but its like not strange, then there is this: total only one — the heroine Saoirse Ronan, a strong-willed ladies, which is not got love life in the strength of character and stubbornness. We can say that Joe — it was Christine who had stronger, but for the last — it is important to overcome the mother and in this struggle to overcome the conflict in yourself, come to terms with it. It is important that as and "Little women", Gerwig in "Lady bird" does not condemn someone who what it prevents heroines: the positions opponents also have their own truth. And in familialism heroine Emma Watson, and in excessive care of the mother, Christine, and in a non-aggressive traditionalism teachers in Catholic schools.

Such arrangement of accents that differentiate already debut, says that Greta Gerwig not just a talented, but as people in 36 extremely wise and balanced judge of people condemning them nor what is not blaming. Such a human and professional maturity, says that she the cinema (actress, writer, Director) has a great future.

Was very surprised that this tape was shot by actress Greta Gerwig! Most of all, she I remember the work of Noah Baumbach "Dear Francis", worthy of the actor's picture with claims genius. As time passed, I already forgot all about as her BAM! comes the film "Lady bird". When I saw the picture do not who was represented by frame the writer of for the movie. Just decided to watch, so as critics almost in one voice praised the picture.

The film is strong, and I am sure you will press the paintings that have long been settled in the framework of the genre, but so it well as it seems on first glance. The story of growing up not new and frayed Directors as cheddar cheese on the grater hot pizza. Given that most recently, Richard Linklater already qualitatively raised this theme "Adolescence" is the Director who on such topics just lined up his filmography and very successful. And it is not single disc Wes Anderson, Stephen Chbosky, Truffaut, yeah a lot of people... So put the question that the new us tells Greta? Yes nothing. The only thing that the highlights of total weight is a debut, a decent debut, and she is a woman that now in our time is important, even though I still, the main thing the movie has to be good.

Acting in the bounds of decency, not can highlight Saoirse Ronan, which actually played "Lady bird", on it is nice to look at, it is not annoying, but not anymore. The rest of the actors on her level. The camerawork, too, without frills. The soundtracks are pleasing to the ear.

So still there saw critics? I don't know. In this picture there nothing can not like it. To watch? See. Like it or not? It all depends on your nastranost and mood. I the film went, and what you desire.

I'm going to watch the Oscar tape, with such a pretentious name and pretentious stylish poster, and get 3P — Teenage Mediocre Prohodnyak

The picture is winning in that raises issues of adolescence, which is unlikely will cease to be relevant. The plot is so simple that it leaves no opportunity for the scenario of stocks. But minutes scenario is this minus in saturation. In an hour and a half the film makers tried to cram so much has happened on the fortieth minute seems like three season of the series was watched.

Also interestingly, the entire film shows us from the point of view of the protagonist. Milf greedy and irritable, the provincial city and close. Those who are not really interested in, particularly are not disclosed as characters.

Visual from tape no causes no emotion, the sound — there. Mounting wild truth, through the frame so aggressively tried to hide the stitching that has cut the sound as much as three seconds before the picture.

In General, all the atmosphere of the picture, causes to watch it easily, naturally, not forcing them to think about metaphors or to survive some tragic event. But Oscar here doesn't smell, sorry.
