Loitering at the corridors of the apartment building, Peter saw in the open doorway of a middle-aged lady, grimancauti in front of the mirror, recognizing in her a famous actress Gloria Graham, and one turn caught the concerned gaze of the young man, drawing with him the fan professionally associated with the theatre, which became the last refuge for prescribed movie women who lost a small fortune, so not finding nothing worthwhile in return.

The novel flashes instantly and develops rapidly, rapidly bringing together lovers, moving of England for ocean Hollywood hills Los Angeles, in the heart of Mahattan, — the scenario these travel go flashback to a disturbing prologue of the film, when, after experiencing a sudden attack of illness, collapsing Gloria stated in Liverpool home Peter, falling an unexpected burden on the hands of his mother like she had enough of their concerns, identifying the obvious love triangle: him, her cancer and, departing, returning for her.

Isolate one episode, the writers focused their attention on a short stretch of the biography of a celebrity, ignoring other events that filled the decades of her life to reducing to a minimum the detail of the portrait of the lover in her Peter, and members families and is exposing along with kitchen furniture, fueling obsessed with late romantic passion, brought to the absurd desire faded Gloria to play the role of Juliet, making clear comforting partner role, got on to deftly throw the hook.

After collecting a few, the movie revolves around these two, defiantly dodging related lines that emphasizes a specific shooting technique in the majority of cases taking place inside various spatially closed objects, whether home room, hotel room or disadvantages seashore: the camera is almost always directed outwards, pushing a covered with curtains window or open door, separating the lovers from the outside world, Yes and on the street frame as a rule is compressed the two sides of the lines of the walls of the courtyards, streets and roads, soft muted light surrounding as expected, soft with exceptional feel.

And Annette Bening, and Jamie bell perfectly act out scenes of conflict to the proximity of two strange people, deprived of a context of certainty of their actions that eliminates suspicion intricate manipulation of one of them others, and the way the authors of the picture, even patter, you still have to remember about a few broken marriages, divorce of the actress, including communications with a stepson thirteen years on than warning tells Peter sinister, but true relatives of Gloria, disturbing writers, he closed his eyes, very much rid of the controversial properties of the female character, deliberately emasculating the images of the two lovers, and their history, reduced to absolute senses; in the final pathetic reciting the text of Shakespeare's great tragedy, inadvertently breaking off about him is his Comedy.

She was not just kinologijos with Oscar, but still funny, playful and still very beautiful woman in their 50-t with a tail. And Peter of course love without memory, despite whole huge difference in age.

Adaptation of the memoirs of British actor Peter Turner about his story of love with the legend of the black-and-white movie, Gloria Graham, shortly before her death due to recurrence of breast cancer.

Frankly, I do not know what the actor has turned out of Turner, but I memoir of the series "stood beside a celebrity, wrote about this book" hate can. The however, we must pay tribute, the movie turned out very nice. In the first place, with the Director Machigan and his signature games with form and structure. So that movie starts with the end, Gloria before his performance loses consciousness and after the hospital, Peter brings her, dying, in his parents ' house, simultaneously Recalling key moments of their novel.

Memories of how they rely, emerge suddenly and they get just by opening the door in the room or hearing a voice. And made more so bright, slightly pretentious that only emphasizes their Evanescence. At the Director is strongly in visual bagatelle is not to flirt the story is quite simple and concentrated on the relationships of the characters, even visually cutting off all unnecessary the frame. We almost nothing learn about Peter very little about the life of Gloria. Ex-husbands, children, role, hints manipulation, in General, any context is given to light touches, just to slightly spice up the characters. It sounds probably not much, but it is good — the film is not applied to detail and the most concentrated on the heroes. A given that they are adorable as Annette Banning and Jamie bell, then in General, nothing more and not necessary. Especially the great bell, the story of his face is the emotional burden on it is. And he is there some eyebrows so much suffering produces or concealed joy that I sympathize with him enormously.

And generally, the film managed some light live tone to catch, plus there are a lot of mild humor that the entire this drama is great softens, so that the end the movie turned out nice.

But still here sounds the most unusual version of California Dreamin’, I did not even know about it.

Liverpool — wonderful not only music and sporting points of view. Britain, he is decorated with pretty responsibly. So it is strange that hitherto the attention of the major films he was deprived, and because geolocation has always looked on the screen. Especially with such a colorful and catchy name. "Movie stars don't die Liverpool"... Expect a real burlesque of the passions and propaganda of sparkling emotions. In fact is absolutely the opposite.

The film, as the adventurous one gets in modern cinema, is an adaptation. Paint it a biography of the once completely invisible actor Peter Turner, has found its first fame thanks to the novel with an aging American actress Gloria Graham, once an Oscar winner, and now — the usual actress, have for film description England tour. Despite the difference in the age of, love is feeling, the difference is not were soon they meet in full, go to America and prepare to live the quiet life of an ordinary "working" actors. However, to enjoy a joint household they are not offered — Gloria gets cancer, and sends back to Liverpool.

The heroine is frankly feels decay, and life and working, where the disease is rather the consequence than the cause. Peter, same time loitering without operation, initially finds the illusion of love (later passing into a true love) from the sight of another side of the actor's life and other senses. He reaches emotionality Gloria in some as her life experience, she also, inspired by his desire to play on the British stage, Juliet sees the young boy as the illusion of Romeo.

It consists of a nonlinear in time. After the opening scene, revealing the final disposition, begins a series of jumbled memories that are displayed at various angles and partly complement each other. The story is deliberately conducted from two persons — Peter Gloria adds the required ribbon color. Actually, imagination McGuigan on not is over, but the momentum enough, even in this reception.

With all the brightness of a movie star, with all references to the classic Hollywood that now certainly is the trends, the Director has tried to Express the relationship between two main characters with heavy artillery in the form of social drama — the actors are not similar if not to mention numerous agents and samples could be it is easy to miss out on this information of species. McGuigan felt it was important to focus on the humanity of the characters, and it played he almost not damage — having a predisposition to the colors, the picture is frankly grey. The tragedy begins and ends her expected, full exploitation of the lacrimal glands. In the end the status is not enough — nor humanistic principles, nor for the biopic of a bygone Golden era.

The same the uncertainty arises in the use of lighting effects and vivid naturalistic colors. At the tragedy of the existential they look rather clumsy, since their application in the picture places like such. Romantic relationships poignancy and piercing ignores, empathy is the level of the household, but not how much emotional. In the end, the whole sensitivity looks oily stain on a white tablecloth. Like it and give it much more information and diversity, only the coefficient for whether this is a useful action?

Seeking some point to be a romance, tape on. really throughout the duration looking for his "I". Acting actively committed to sentimentality, but the basis of the formulation given primitive and direct reality, which the characters begin to fade. They don't die in Liverpool, they disappear it other cities in the path between these cities. Filmed the book is not is re-read, it is put back on the shelf.
