In 2005, five priests accused in the murder of a nun, over which was performed the rite of exorcism. Journalist Nicole begins its independent investigation. But as you dip in a chain of inexplicable events, she is becoming more and more of their an integral part more inclined to that the clergy lost the battle with a demonic entity and the exorcism has been a tool of the demon in its terrible ritual.

Journalist Nicole is a young girl who seek to move in the career ladder, making his big name. She does not disdain to enter the prohibited locations, and not afraid to bring on the wrath of the clergy. Cold and doubt a social climber at first, in the end become a true believer. The actress has successfully coped with the image of the heroine, not making it in a giant cliche. Father Anton is a smart and intelligent man. His image contrasted image of the main character, which the original is weak in faith, he is a true believer. The rest of the actors I also liked that they played bright, emotional and completely alive.

Basically, this film reminds of the interview with elements memories of the dead girl, everything looks very interesting. The plot goes smoothly, without sagging. Despite the lack of dynamic and flash Boo scenes, the film is very lively and atmospheric. Special style and some Gothic elements, give the film costumes and dresses, local residents and clergy. Also, I like that a small budget movie, directed intelligently created scenes of exorcism.

Despite the hackneyed themes of the film was interesting. Isolation pleased, it gave a certain warmth and hope the best. In my loved it.

Don't quite understand why it was necessary to the Russian hire to call this movie "Curse. Our days", especially if The Crucifixion translates as "the Crucifixion", and not "spell". So just trying to note that this movie is not has absolutely nothing to do with a duologue where starring starred Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson. Although there is one thing in common: all there is — it's hackneyed and worn to holes the theme of obsession, and all the grave circumstances of her companion.

Well, another one plus — this actress — Sophie Cookson — beautiful British woman, known to the audience the role of Roxie in the original version of "the Kingsman".

The film tells about the failed expulsion of the demon of the person, which resulted in death. According to charges supplying this condition has been planted in jail a few Ministers of the Church, and the journalist Nicole (Cookson) is taken for the investigation into this case and goes to scene — in a remote Romanian village, lost somewhere in the woods and the mountains.

What well, admittedly, the joint British-Romanian film showed that the Romania this day of living like in the 19th century, dragging a miserable existence. No, the Russian province, too, life is not honey all the same, when the viewer shows a dilapidated house, people dressed like them the clothes sewed on the loom is still in the year, but that show that even a wilderness traveler can easily find a room and in the hotel (!), becomes it is doubtful that the Director objective. The village where events not located on the sea shore, there to kazdoy yard could be considered an Inn, but the less Nicole without problems place itself finds and riding completely paved roads...

Director Xavier Jansen does not have to reinvent the wheel and movies are no otlichayuscheisya from the like. Around the scene receptions, Suzanne with obsession, about the same speech, of which it is clear that evil overcomes those whose faith is shaken or those who do not believe at all. Although it looks a bit strange, because in the demons are almost no damage taken from various prayers, and so it is unable to move into a priest, because their words gives a positive result. While removing all there is — "the Rite" with Anthony Hopkins.

The fact that in the course of the film, the phrase about that the demon takes hold of those who are weak in faith, immediately give the audience the lead on the man who will become the object of persecution of the dark forces and this realization is disappointing, because the creators just do not able to provide journalistic detective story, thinking that Nicole will be enough to ask a few people some questions and visit the scene, no need a way to justify the love story (it all comes down to that under the pressure of feelings someone someone will try to save), adding to the interchange, on which was already known in the first half of the film.

It is reported that the film is based on real events. Not know this, but "Curse. These days" looks like "the exorcism of Emily rose" as its scenario content. Well and the main moral that might come from him to make, can be interpreted as follows: lived in small village — live there and beyond. Dpi cows, mow the grass, feed the pigs and don't full of temptation city, you can get a great the head. This lesson makes and "the exorcism of Emily rose" and"Curse. Our days" according to which can be judged that big city — this is a place of Vice and evil, and quiet and peaceful — the focus of the lamb of God...

However, to watch You. Your opinion is not impose.

Nice view.

With the support of the famous Luc Besson in as a producer and also putting in the back in 2007 a shocking and bloody slasher "Border" and the excellent "silent hill", a French Xavier Jansen very loudly declared yourself as a Director. Almost giving hope birth a talented, ambitious and promising Director of the genre of horror films, the likes of which is now frankly not enough. However, in the end it all were does the "birth of a new star", as momentary lights flying past satellites and verify this again allows this film.

The events of this tape is Xavier Jansen are developed around a real incident in the middle of the zero case of exorcism, which ended tragically as for "obsessed", so and conducted the rite clergy. It is around this real event, the filmmakers and hyped invented them a story that's not just not gave a new impetus to the history and rather, it noticeably slowed down.

The main drawback of the picture rests on the weak implementation of this history, which is not just not possess originality, but verbatim quotes and a huge amount of clichés, stereotypes and patterns of the genre. Repeatedly when the viewing of the tape causing an analogy with "Six demons of Emily rose" Scott Derrickson, "the Exorcist" William Friedkin, "the Rite" by Mikael Hafstrom and a huge number of films on the subject. In fact, making all events on the event screen, it's hopelessly derivative and predictable, and so interesting.

The Director of this tape is Xavier Jansen never was a playwright, and more of a visionary and in fully reflected in this feed. The picture was taken is very beautiful and stylish. Since authentic hand-picked locations and scenery ending favorite Jansen close-UPS of all and Sundry. However, making a spoonful of tar in all the complete lack of the necessary atmosphere tension and suspense, and also a tiny amount of BU-moments that disappoint as number, and quality productions.

The star of the first "Kingsman" Sophie Cookson was a disappointment. If the film Matthew Vaughn to her and managed to bring on screen, very charismatic and interesting way, in this film it is not even trying this falsity is felt while watching the tapes in full. About the rest of the actors even speak as not want.

Spell. Our days — it was a weak representative of the horror film on the subject of exorcism, which already nothing to brag about. Is secondary, boring, formulaic, absolutely not terrible not atmospheric, not interesting blank film, which is not have saved even visionary quality Director Xavier Jansen and the attempts of the Russian localizers to associate a picture with a franchise, the Conjuring by James WAN.
