By misfortune or fortunately,
The truth is simple:
Never come
In the same place.
Even if the ashes
Looks quite
Can't find that seek,
You or to me.
Travel to back
I would be banned
I'm asking you as brother
The soul does not Muti... Gennady Shpalikov

Volker schlöndorff has dedicated this film tribute to max Frisch. And immediately POPs up in the mind of "Homo Faber" (1991) he  "the travellers," he  "the wanderer" — a mysterious, lyrical drama, "Golden Fund" of cinema.

No doubt seen some similarity, continuity. Sam Shepard — Stellan Skarsgard, Barbara Sukowa — Nina Hoss. Again two halves not a whole or single, but not the whole. The captivating story of men and women. The handwriting of the master and complete submission to the attention of the audience. Watch, listen, heed. And time flies.

How will we meet our past, fifteen to twenty years later? Is each of the us surprisingly exciting to be of such contact? As respond to the hail? A hollow echo? Resounding joy? Cold nod? Dismissive grimace? Last if the hand or not consider it possible even to speak. Each of us got our part to play and a "Gordian knot" — "what is sown shall you reap" or "so, in all as want to you people acted, so do with them for this is the law and the prophets"(St. The gospel from Matthew) — beingness flowing in Outlook. Well if our actions don't have left scars-scars, not crippled, not broke the incident can be understood and to accept or have understood and accepted as due.

Similar colors and successful writer max. Meeting with their past. When he put in a new York IRCA his beloved Rebecca and settled in Europe. Their story love is not received the continuation. No IT or IT does not reminded themselves to each other. What it became after almost two decades? What will be the meeting? All the second half of the film this action... Maturity and history.

Cinematic game of solitaire, laid out SEVENTY-EIGHT-year-old master of a fascinating and all also substantial. No sense to retell the plot — every itself, sound grain, the mistakes of others for the consolidation of a private Foundation. On that stand.

Nice and surprising that is the product of a whole heap of thought forms, forced to stretch the gray matter of the head. Here it is true art in all its breadth of functionality.

And again. From each of us its vital tenets, nurtured a unique and highly individual experience, but the truth is still one "do Not have to perform feats, just not do villainy"(Vladimir Ivashov. Soviet actor).

8 from 10

PS A residue from the external appearance of Nina Hoss. So not understand, bad plastic face to blame or excesses of make-up for outlining the current state of the embodied character. Suzanne wolf two years older, but it is much fresher...

Mater Volker does not offer anything new. Again it offers us portrait of a pensive intellectual. As Rip van the Winkle, he decided to hold a moment. It returns to the city of his past. Speaking there with exactly the same speech he apparently even he already do not believe in his sincerity and depth. And there re playing it tragedy — a lone man who does not able to cope with two important in his life women. And already the viewer to decide — it's a move the imagination of the hero that returns to his in the past, or this is actually repetition of the past. Moreover, absolutely nothing in change one, and other interpretations.

Well, on a cold snack we can get cute leftist monologues about the dominance of big business and impact on the fate of Europe. And is with that protagonist recognizes that start was given time of that such money was graciously handed over the young talent.

So I saw the new film by Volker. The picture of guileless man who became entangled in the course of his life, as well as in the philosophical constructions that he broadcasts.
