Despite all my apprehensions, the picture was not heavy pretty funny. Although the topic is raised in the movie, gives little cause for joy.

"Draws children are not happen." "Children — the flowers of life". "We live for children". But why something is happening so that the children have to doubt these immutable truths. The loneliness and sense of uselessness with the whole surrounding world and pursue day night. All the adults are the same and don't know how to love — this must be how the world sees the abandoned child. And same saw him. Squash all of his friends of the orphanage. But children's naivety and gullibility is not allow the long to be offended by the world of evil. They still continue to believe in love miracle will one day find his family.

Sometimes I dream I grew up and still live together with mother. She drink a lot of beer and I also drink. I just happy that is never happens.

Life is sometimes very cruel and unpredictable, and sometimes events may occur, or we can get unexpected news that literally break us and break the sense of further existence. But not a reason to lose heart and give up on yourself and others. You need to try to survive this pain, collect all the power to go further. This idea is presented in entertainment psychological the Franco-Swiss drama "Life Pub".

synopsis After 9-year-old boy Icarus at the nickname "Squash" accidentally kills his mother-alcoholic, it is sent to the orphanage. In the shelter, he meets your peers, who are also on different difficult reasons find themselves in this place. Soon it is in the shelter among friends Icarus really feel happy, but everything changes when among the students there's a new girl Camille.

In my opinion that Director Claude Barras took a seemingly simple human story in the form of puppet animated film was the bold and successful step. He was able to transfer this world as you see children who still don't understand, but are forced to deal with adult things. The film is literally filled with humanity and the usual young audience is unlikely to understand. But the Director has built a story that are you inspired by film and begin to sincerely empathize with the heroes.

Script of the film I strongly recalled the story a psychological drama with a part of Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie "girl, Interrupted". As in the movie "the Tavern" the protagonist Icarus "Tavern" in the coincidence is in the orphanage. At first he kept apart from other children, but gradually opened them, entering the company and finding real friends. It combines the characters of General Woe, consisting in that but here love them no one else. However, they do not lose heart — have fun, learn about the world and fall in love. It is love of the new girl Camilla, who is also the hard nut to crack, even more strengthens the faith of Zucchini in good people.

Summary see this I have seen a few things. First, the animated puppet films have their own atmosphere, which is not find computer animation. Secondly, sometimes in order to convey some idea, the better it show the cartoon, and not artistic painting with live actors, because in a metaphor the viewer better understand the meaning of "the Tavern".

I want to recommend you just a great cartoon, which was nominated for the Oscar. Called "Life pub". 've passed it by many, and nothing. A very sad story of children living in the orphanage. The main character — boy Pub (it is called mom and he was used to this nickname). And that's only one show us interesting things — thought the thoughts of children, the internal struggle between good and bad, in the end, life itself, without the sorts of colors of colors, a real cruel life, what is it and see the children left without a parental love.

The cartoon is stylistically reminiscent of the Gothic cartoons of Burton, or creation Studio "Laika" ("Paranorm", "Coraline in country nightmares", and etc). And not only similar shaped, but and internally: in the cartoon there is a bit of dark humor, bleakness, full of significant thoughts and morality. Is only hour. That surprising, for a small amount of time we reveal the essence of the problem, some of the characters, and in the end beat under the stomach is sad, but a logical ending.

The cartoon is very serious, he no children's one hundred percent. The humor is there, but often focuses on adults. Well, so you know what caliber of thought and morality are the cartoon, then there is often talk about the death, sex, loneliness. It may seem that before us is a solid depressed and stolid persistence, but no, the cartoon combines yourself and some common comfort, positive. It tries to be organic at all, I think it makes it the perfect creation, which, without doubt, stands out amongst their animated brethren.
