Planetarium French Rebecca Zlotowski for role in which is an outstanding actress Natalie Portman intensively studied the French language, tells the story of two sisters-American women, Laura and Katie, blazer Europe, 30 years, conducting a seance. "In Europe in the dozens or hundreds of times more dead than alive", and people are very gullible and not too demanding, so work brings a stable income. Sisters says producer Andre Corben: it sure demonstration of "real" ghosts on the big screen will bring him to its former glory and wealth.

The role Laura played Lily-rose melody Depp, daughter of a famous Hollywood actor johnny Depp and the role of Kathy, the consummate Israeli Natalie Portman. They play the sisters, but the difference the age of the actress immediately begins to cut the eyes — Natalie 34 years and Lily-rose only 16. But not looking boyish good looks and stellar father, his career in young Lily-rose while that clearly not specified. To remember only the last work of Kevin Smith's "Yoga" / "Lohanutsya" (2016), where she starred in a pair daughter of the Director. And after — this movie, which is definitely better than the creation of Smith, but a career with a jerk of his clearly not be called (well that though not drop!).

The synopsis of the film is the following phrase: "And suddenly sisters — not mediums, not the mediators between the living world and the dead world, and a charlatan". This phrase instantly convinced that the film — no more than a fiction. As and made in contemporary cinema: a beautiful picture, stunning costumes and scenery, but the almost complete lack of any integrity and intelligibility. Here the heroine is Natalie Portman stands in the middle of a darkened room, chock full of people giving this charmed spectacle of the crowd, General information, the presence of which is so obviously it is not even doubts my luck. Suicide; resentment that so not was resolved before death; the tragic death in a consequence example, auto - or the crash — all near, among us, nearly everyone is faced with something like that. People believe in sugroby the world in message deceased relatives and friends and psychics cleverly take advantage of the gullibility of people who as soon as it comes to something festering in the soul, increases in a geometrical progression. The problem of the existence of such a film in that he is really trying to do intrigue — psychics these sisters, or no. And for a similar manipulation of the human mind that show sisters, there are today — after more than 70 years since the action of the film. Psychics all as cashing in on the confidence of the people and media — and even the Federal — willing to support popularization of unfounded gossip. Examples, I think the result is not need — you turn on any Russian TV channel, as sooner or later you will be able to see any stage show or pseudodocumentary about extrasensory perception. A laugh like raised long ago, "South Park", for example, early noughties regularly mocks dominance similar here individuals into the minds (uneducated or lost?) people.

And performances of the heroines in"the Planetarium" suitable time to a parody sketch of "South Park": when a psychic is wrong, saying the wrong thing that and some of the hall quickly indicates the error he quickly changes the subject, headlong running away in the opposite corner of the stage under the pretext that there can hear disembodied voices. Here only the film even this is not shown. Writers, among whom she Zlotowski, it seems, was too lazy to dig in the archives, study photos and videos, of which even in the Internet is a dime a dozen: nothing specific, accurate demonstration of the real Ouija, no linguistic or psychological methods of entry into the confidence. At times the movie captures the in mainly due to the technical implementation, including measured hypnotizing installation, but in General, is a pointless and pathetic farce.

A parallel between cinema and spiritualism ridiculous. But when the sisters start to flicker in the movie, charming atmosphere suddenly lost in the infinite pathos dinners where a lot of secular ladies in elegant hats for quite a long time no talk about, being, probably, sure that got into the film of Federico Fellini. Despite the bright colors, which are lavish visuals, the film is even more dreary than was the first act. And a lot of plot lines to the final so not getting a proper level of development: no about sessions of spiritualism, where the older sister is the host of the event, and younger simulates that it the body possesses the spirit or about the relationship between sisters, no about a desperate producer who wanted to save French cinema, removing a Ghost on film.

Planetarium one of the most boring strips that I saw the last time. A good idea is not receives it was no natural development, which the film seems empty and extremely pompous. The scene is served with so strong a tension that awaiting some kind of the emotional interchange. But its just not as no present. but not contrived conflict.

Director Rebecca Zlotowski swung to a deep drama about context, mysticism and cinema, but they were given only a long romance drive in the gloom. And after all, drawing Parallels between spiritism and movie-like a form of cheating the audience looked promising.

Of the actors remembered only the main character, and I had to try that do so inexpressive. Natalie Portman a wonderful actress, but she gives the acting a worthy landmark of the dialogue Padme Anakin. Lily-rose Depp and is almost devoid of scenes that would have been able to reveal her character.

All that the film was able to convey to viewers it's beautiful, but very obvious metaphor that movie-like and spiritualism is a fraud of people who want to them to believe.

Nostalgia for the elegant years and beautiful era is included in fashion house often tolerate the place in the beginning of the last century, a time when ladies dressed up in beautiful dresses and did the styling, the men smoked cigars and wore tailcoats, and life seemed solid holiday.

Rebecca Zlotowski chosen as the scene of pre-war France. The Director does not stint colors and scenery showing the life of Bohemian Paris — mediums, fascination with fashion, cinema, partying with cocaine and champagne, extravagance and reckless fun. A world where the fate fall two sisters, Laura and Katie Barlow (Natalie Portman and Lily-rose Depp, respectively), came to earn a Ouija sessions. The two sisters — delicate and beautiful, younger on first glance, charming, innocent, high seems to be tough and calculating. Waiting for the catch, who they are: speculators looking for easy ways of enrichment or the girls really have psychic abilities? Strange sisters fall in the field of view of Andre Corbeil, Manager of the film company, and he visited at the seance and sensing the touch of the Ghost, decides to make a film about the afterlife, although he really is obsessed with the idea of capturing on film the incorporeal creature.

The viewer, as if hypnotized, watching the movie in the film, which Zlotowski presents with a truly feminine desire to make all aesthetically most beautiful. Seance infused with action the set. Someone talking acts soundtrack dialogue of the main characters. Dimensional tapping instead of music lulls and hypnotizes. Thin Laura in airy white dress seems to be a Ghost, and Kate's apron protection x-ray and terrible helmet-the device for measurement, similar to the pale knight, stepped in our world with paintings of surrealist. A clear picture gives way to blurred shots, as if the viewer looks hard all forces looks closely, squints his eyes, vainly hoping to see — the Ghost of you? Add visual splendor of each scene, and the viewer falls in a trance, bewitched by history Zlotowski. To unfortunately, Rebecca's story about the interweaving of the illusory worlds — the other world and the magical world of cinema ends somewhere in the middle of the film and it starts with a muddled retelling of the events of the earthly nature: serious illness, ruin, wish to appease the pain of loss and adapt a new life. At this cool mix of decadence and mysticism from the film wait, definitely more.

The at least, the film looks much more interesting than their big-budget counterparts. In the first place, thanks to the Duo of two beautiful Actresses Lily-rose Depp and Natalie Portman. If the side of the first until only the immediate charm of youth, it Natalie has to offer the viewer not only to admire the his perfect beauty, but and flawless acting. We would like to acknowledge the excellent work of Katie Biscop, painter, costume designer dressed Actresses in stunning outfits would be thrilled to wear any modern fashionista.
