It is definitely 1 of the best movies I've seen. Another way to be not could: Inyarittu 1 of my favorite Directors, and Sean Penn and Benicio Del Toro — 2 favorite actor. The film — masterpiece. Not even worth trying to describe it, it is necessary to look not trivas.

After the first viewing have I was shock a couple of days. Not will says nothing about the story is not necessary. But the film destroys the brain completely.

The actors are the best. Brilliant game Sean Penn not surprising: after "Mystic river", "Turn", "I am Sam" and other masterpieces worth the wait. Benicio also not surprised: he gave genialny before the game. And Naomi watts surprised. Honestly, I do not expected, but Bravo! Took a look at her other films: good girl.

Overall, a must watch, but unless are in depression, and she will definitely increase. The brain stem is provided! But it's worth it! Inarittu, get a record book!

21 grams — fantasy subject as deeply sure we can see, touch, and smell this most, not in mind, soul. With the beginning, the movie throws in total chaos and confusion at everything going on, the images of delicious, amazing dynamics, sitting, watching and waiting, waiting, waiting... Is a third of the film and... all unfolds on the shelves. The plot becomes the gum. It seems that if you want to play mount — the grief deliberately woeful, if you want to passion play — the passion is naive and unconvincing passionate, generosity — so that can be dying on his deathbed in front of the whole family, which they distribute their possessions.

The film screening is not in order to know, and to be honest that you see itself is not have been deceived, not leave bias and incompleteness.

Involuntarily came the reference to the films by Pedro Almodovar, in which the pillars set out in the plot of the movie, stand and acquire new and new patterns, crash or destined to endure only the end of the movie.

This film is more like an experiment, a kind of blurring of the templates build the storyline and the interpretation of the script. This movie as a good experiment, but just as an experiment.

How it is to live sick, dead nauseated.

I. A. Krylov.

Write a review for the film — anyway, that try to touch that a substance that in the popular consciousness and weighs 21 grams. In the works of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's hard to grasp any terminal: idea, dramatic or philosophical, theme, plot, audio-visual solution. It a movie, like a carbon copy of life itself: as a heterogeneous, eclectic, intricate. And he it — almost God that lays out the melody of the scenes in his driven harmony that weaves them in a single composition, brings to the unfathomable flawlessness and colors and light carve something previously unseen facets of the talent of their artists.

Three families, three stories, three protagonists, three of fate... Life is like you know, the best playwright, and because it will bring them inherent only to her demonic fantasy.

Although Jack Jordan (Benicio Del Toro), the world had seen a child in cell, he still gets into another way, where there is a place for faith, family, big love and not large, but honestly earned money. And the original, in accordance with the classical drama review, event, uniform for all characters, it becomes accident, which character Del Toro death hit children and husband of the heroine Naomi watts and hides the accident scene. The latter gives consent to a heart transplant for his dying wife math (seann Penn), relationships in the family which long ago came to a standstill. Here is born and perhaps the most interesting and touching storyline. Mathematics is not haunted by the question of who is his Savior, and a new heart proceptive fast track in the house the previous owner...

Despite the fact that Inarritu asks more questions than it answers, it is possible to allocate exactly the character ex-con, as a kind of mouthpiece through which he and recites the greater part of the ideas. Standing on the path of the righteous man, Jordan is faced with the paradoxes and contradictions of Christianity, about which wrote Chesterton, and once after that again trapped, in a fit of anger curses Jesus is not less eager than Bulgakov, Matthew of God after the crucifixion. But "life goes on, with God or without," — he parries wife.

Life... life! In all its variety, volume, mystery and priceless. "21 grams" — existential parable, which all characters understand the value of his existence, just balancing on the edge of a precipice, but the only one who choose from the abyss, and get a new chance and a new meaning. And "the amputated" Naomi watts will forget about the disability Del Toro will receive the atonement, and Sean Penn will meet true love. What is 21 grams? The weight of a Hummingbird, the weight of five coins. Sometimes a lot more.
