April 2013. 28-year-old Jeff Bauman, working in gastronomy shop, and no stand-out among millions of American boys, sent to the streets of Boston to support ex-girlfriend (whom he broke up three times), participating in the famous marathon race. New step the reunion ends in tragedy: at the time of the marathon boom two explosions, which Jeff loses both legs.

At first glance, "Stronger" seems a little do not the heir to the "Forrest Gump" (which here, by the way, bad joke). The event, which the basis of the film of David Gordon green — ideal for uplifting story about  - overcoming. Those are of the two parallel to the developing messages: the first, described above, and second — one most popular — Patriotic. Both interfere with each other, and is of them it works, perhaps no.

All the matter in that Jeff just survived a terrorist attack, but and has promoted the capture of the culprit. So "Stronger" is the time from the time is converted from history of the establishment in, God forgive me, an ode to the heroism and invincibility of the American people. In case the last green comes on the same rake, and most of the modern biopic: films made rather for Wikipedia than on the script, often get overloaded, and from "Stronger" easily could cut about 20 minutes of pathetic episodes.

However, in counterbalance to the above convincing line, in which Bauman is inclined to as an introvert. Take the same scene where Jeff wakes up on a hospital bed because of the screams from the corridor: the news about the destruction of the terrorist aroused the delight in his loved ones, while the reaction Bauman, focusing on the inner peace, more than restrained. The idea that the problem is willpower above all else pride in the nation, making this deeper into the story.

At some point the object of praise becomes a very Bauman. The fact he was in living helped the FBI, the surrounding is considered as the symbol of all the same durability of the American spirit, although surprised such a situation is more important not to lose composure, than to dissolve in a blaze of glory. This way could be recorded in favor of the Director, if he dedicated to her one strong scene, and not a few are trivial.

But how would often grin not stumble upon claims premium season, "Stronger", there is one fat plus, which is not allows the film to fall apart on the past two hours. Jake Gyllenhaal has long been established as one of the best actors of our time, but this mandatory role of the Martyr — another testimony to the fact that really talented actor not will allow the physical transformation to obscure the depth of character. So when closer to the finale there is a feeling that you come to realize how precious family ties with by Jeff Bauman, I understand that the "Oscar" from Daniel day-Lewis will be a serious competitor.

"Stronger" is a history is full of desperation and weakness. Although the film and is called "Stronger" on the duration of the preview we see before us a weak man trying to appear strong. For the sake of family and loved ones, for people who something from him waiting. He wants to meet the expectations. In as inside it breaks the person. The rejection itself of the present causes powerful emotions and the absolute loss of self.

About the game Jake, or rather, there is there's Jake, he is fully dissolved in the way boundaries are blurred to max. We see character, a real person and her actions. A family that tries to survive the tragedy, so as you can. A mother who tries anything to get away from the current situation of the brothers and father is absolutely not realise that their someone close have never would like before. All family actions are performed consciously and absolutely not tell about compassion, who am I is to blame?

In the darkness of grief and despair there is only one ray of sun, I put the beginning, I glad not lost. It is the heroine Tatyana Maslany, girl strong and very intelligent. It becomes the main driving force that allows HS to go before don't give up, get out of the moral oblivion.

This is a very strong and life-affirming movie, which gives a positive charge. Yes, the events themselves, on the of this story is very sad, but the film carries a big charge and makes you think. Think about the insignificance of our own, often far-fetched and absolutely not serious problems. Makes you believe in the power of the human spirit!

The film is very good, but my think he something very gets. Jake plays hard, but not full. Action keeps, but not 100%. I too much waiting and not received. And, I think, the statues here is not shining. Although it is only my opinion.

Terrorist acts — phenomenon, no exceptions, terrible. But that I have an overwhelming — the ambitions of the business in a creative environment. Of course, the works removed or written based on those or other tragedies are divided into 2 categories: in some cases, these events you want to display and to rethink, in other to profit and exploit complex topics than creators often use to all sorts of festivals. They are quite easily distinguishable from other one critical tool — time. One thing — to witness the history that took place decades ago, another — go to cinema the film, released a few years later. Here and a biopic with nice and a rather pretentious name of "Stronger", created by the eponymous memoirs of the victims of the terrorist attack that occurred on the Boston marathon, Jeff Bauman, not have to wait.

The plot presents the viewer with by Jeff Bauman in the performance of Jake Gyllenhaal. At the time of the Boston marathon, where in a tragic coincidence, turned out to be a hero, there's a terror attack. One of the explosions deprive of Jeff's legs.

The hero has to put up with existing circumstances, and while America is experiencing a tragedy, Jeff will have to survive their own drama and to learn to live.

Tolerant the West is a rather strange tradition: hundreds of victims, and it produced the memoirs, in a moment becoming bestsellers. What purpose at this haunted authors do not always clear: we do multi-page letter serves as my sort of therapy, it is whether literary agents whisper in the ear figures, leading authors to thought "Why not." Maybe a place to have both option this, of course, not bad, but unlikely brings any kind of cultural value. What the new tried to bring in the genre biography Comedy film directed by David Gordon green and a soap actor John Pollano, which debuted in as a writer, it becomes obvious that in the first half-hour timekeeping and to the end of the film. Of course, humor. The hero of Gyllenhaal then and the jokes on the topic of earned disability, overcoming personal tragedy deep inside, often weighing the sarcastic comments on the questions shameless citizens, it appears the goal is to Pat the hero on shoulder to announce another pseudo-Patriotic nonsense. And have to give credit to the creators, is to bring something new and to refresh the genre has been pretty good. A little more and you could go "Dramedy" like the tone of the picture "50 to 50". In addition, the film is not different from hundreds of dramatic biopic absolutely nothing. The narrative and accompanying dynamics follow the classical structure: a beginning, an acquaintance with characters, tragedy, heartache, mistakes and new trials, Patriotic fervor, the solution to the errors, insights and happy ending. Expect more not worth because of a fairly narrow genre. "Stronger" could become deep independent picture, if the story is focused directly on the personal tragedy of the main character and his subsequent development in the current unfavorable environment. But that occurs closer to the finale, the expected pathos and the abundance of clichés take a picture in the direction of the expectations of the masses, changing avatar in Facebook after every terrorist attack. And look at another biopic with interest to somehow feel the drama is only possible thanks to the strong play of Gyllenhaal, literally pulling the entire picture. And unfortunately, he film — not the same Fincher does not contribute to the genre is nothing new.

(Estimate only the game Gylenhall)

+: Setting, the game of Gyllenhaal, humor.

-: The abundance of cliches and pseudo-Patriotic pathos.
