The film immediately hits a backhand, intertwined a lot of problems — mixed marriage, the problems of races, issues with relatives, explosion, death of loved ones. And all at first perceived to be somewhat removed, because and films on these topics a lot, and in real life this cars. Starting to think it is a movie about Nazism, chauvinism, racial discrepancies. The event ran forward, and you have virtually certain that not your film came.

Then the picture changes. The film is divided into three parts. In the second begins to seem that the film is about the imperfection of the judicial system, that our attitude toward people in the court is not formed on the basis of rational things, and exclusively on personal preferences. If your husband of the Turks, according to the entire body of the tattoo and in the past, illicit drugs, you have nothing to expect and sympathy. Diane Kruger has revealed in the full power of your creative potential, her sorry even unwittingly. And the film is gaining some flavor of "the Stranger" by Camus and that's more interesting.

In the third part of the picture becomes clear and even if you not come with using your mind — what film, you all will still be feeling. But becomes clear — what was needed all the husks in the first part, the court second in the end wanted to tell the Director. Woke up by the operator, I certainly do not an expert, but a quick flickering of the camera sometimes hurt my eyes. Or this is a question for the Director is not know.

In General and General, a film with a very deep sense, keeps in suspense all an hour and a half and, most importantly, how matryoshka, reveals all new new horizons. It is, you can see several films in one. Absolutely nothing "To the limit" is not nominated for  the"Oscar" for movies foreign language.

So as not to end on a tragic note, I want to share a couple of observations. The main character name is Katya and she's German. What well, it happens. But a lawyer name is Daniel. To what is it? And, maybe I thought I may it in all German films — there are longer pauses in the credits. Perhaps the Germans wait, when all read.

Of 10 10.

The film "On the limit" is built around the problems of Turkish immigrants in Germany. Fatih akin, born in Germany one such families have not first time that affects the problem their pictures (e.g., the movie "the edge of heaven").

"At the limit" is acutely raises and some very socially significant themes: neo-Nazism, the depravity of the judicial system, public attitudes to people who use drugs, and Central — the theme of revenge.

The main heroine of the film — Kate, whose role is brilliantly played by Diane Kruger, loses her husband (a Turk at the origin) and son the attack. The tragedy, in which trying to understand the German police, reveals the many problems of the last husband of Katie, previously sitting in prison for drug trafficking. The investigation did not believe that former "drug addict" was able to rise path to be engaged in quite legal business. Not looks random and that subsequently, the question of drugs becomes crucial to justify the obvious perpetrators of the crime.

The film is divided into 3 independent parts: "Family", "Justice" and"Sea". In  the"Family" shows are complex interpersonal relationships. It and the line of conduct of the authorities with the family of the victims, and the line of friendship and understanding Kati with mother parents-in-law. Each dialogue tape does not look casual and shape a holistic understanding of feelings and emotions of the main character, struggling between the desire for justice and desire to die.

Part of the "Justice" devoted to the trial of the alleged killers — a young couple neo-Nazis. This part — the successful attempt of the Director to show the harmfulness of the German justice system, which the result justifies the accused. The embodiment of her wickedness becomes a defense attorney whose not can not to cause a feeling of contempt. Special attention deserves the father of the accused. It the only one seems repentant in cases, while the defendants themselves are not have no tears of regret for the offense.

"Sea" is different from the previous two parts totally different emotional component. Here Kate, tired of the search of justice, decides to desperate for revenge. Here she understand that even the case of the accomplished revenge, her life is no longer have any meaning, and voltage received it solutions is maintained to the final scene of the picture.

The game Diane Kruger for really brilliant! You believe it from the beginning to the end, share the emotions and in the end subconsciously agree to make a choice.

I don't think the film could leave anyone indifferent. As at least, he will leave the stage for thought the next half hour after watching.

without hesitation to watch the movie well before the February rent was provided by the international author's cinema festival "Clique Fest", which began on the ninth of November its 7-day operation. Hall has been filled.

The new film of Fatih akin is permeated with the plight of the protagonist, which was completely satisfied with life, while changes made an explosion that killed wife and son. Long of act the terrorists will have to wait, so that almost immediately, the spectator starts to watch here roaring and a lost woman. Not only that, the main character Kate comes know yourself a slow pace, so the General atmosphere of despair and hopelessness complement the endless rains for the window. Hamburg is drowning from the gift of the heavenly office.

The film, of course, high-quality and fine tailored. Strong all the drama and meat, which is trying very hard to talk about serious problems in society. In General, the project can be regarded as a political statement of the Director. Problem with the Nazi groups that in response for several murders of persons of non-German origin, still keenly felt in the society of Germany. So that myself Home Fatih akin, we can say, he threw a bomb at the epicenter of scandals. But otherwise, since the dark man is not give to live in peace.

Unfortunately, the "limit" not provides some exciting mind emotions. Although the Director of the Turks have tried using Kate to show all the pain their attitude to the problem. A third of the film is spent on the plot, the second — the meeting in court, yet third — executing own ideas. Three stage path to go desperate it is a deliberate step, so as no one else could help Kate. Consequently, the film is shot in a restrained tone, without sex delights excess water. For a movie of this format, of course, required an experienced actress.

Diane Kruger took of the bright make-up, have exhausted yourself with imaginary grief, and then I remembered the German language. On the output of the powerful role that already very cleverly grabbed the Palme d'or at the Cannes film festival. Her Katya — woman not the categories of the beauties of instagram, which most of the time at the fitness restaurants. In the past, had their sins, but with the creation of the family came and a new taste to life. Like seemed to them to be able to taste the best life thoroughly, not there it was. The actress was to play there.

The film has no problems the drawbacks and deficiencies. And still, unknown reason "limit" not grabs the soul of a stranglehold. Understand the grief of the main character, even sometimes empathize with her, I want to regret. But still there is a feeling that the Director had the intention to bring Kate to arm's length to cause the viewer's empathy. Or they just conceived. The movie is nice, but just to much and caused a storm of feelings — not about him. Waiting for Feb.
