With love, Simon on extremely clean movie. This film is not zaparivat on the subject of tolerance and intolerance, not exploits the theme of tolerance to sexual minorities, he just tells a beautiful and touching story. About the normal teenagers, carrying a certain idea.
About the film found out quite by accident once read schedule of Premier in IMDb came across like a simple poster for teen movies. Read the synopsis — this creation have for a brief description was touching and sweet. Very sorry that in our country the picture has a very low rent (and then our artists surprised with the great demand for a pirated copy).
Well, love Simon — story of student at the name of Simon, from it also has a secret. A secret he no one opened. And here he can the Internet will get acquainted with kind of Blue. They overwritten, everything is going well, but here to the misfortune of the Simon school, "the clown," Martin finds out the secret the main character and blackmail tries through Simon's relationship with his girlfriend — school beauty Abby.
What is the first thing eyes — this, of course, the purity of the frame. All very simple, cute, warm, the screen is dominated by the symmetry, and the picture simply does not can not to please the eye.
In the film good revealed minor characters, Simon is not trying to themselves, and the film wisely uses timing, paying attention, and the problems of relations between friends, and intolerance, and of course love line. But I want to say about the friends of the protagonist. Nick, Leah and Abby. This simple, classic friends many of such is, or certainly was (especially in childhood). Friend-dude (Nick) — cool guy, can trust the main character of your secrets, to discuss with him girls, sporting all of themselves so well and, of course, good sense of humor. Oh Yes, he likes to tell about your dreams! Lea — a real friend-girl for many guys. With I didn't understand her motivation on the conflict and quarreling. But I was very touched by her dialogue with Simon approximately in the middle of the movie. Think of the feelings experienced that character is familiar to many. Abby — the real girl-boy, WITHOUT a CLICHÉ that love to use filmmakers, creating a similar image. I were very moved by Simon's friends, they reminded me of my friends in the film, they are the relationship is very sincere, that even forget that it's a movie. It is making a movie of the life... with love. The Director and the actors definitely did a great job to achieve this effect.
What to the parents of the main character, there is also do not so simple. I liked the father (Josh Duhamel), he is not a classic folder-friend, where he was bursting to tears, I felt that the bond between father and son. And possibly, therefore, the film manages to maintain the perfect middle ground between the snotty "lesbijkami" and a touching, romantic, very funny Comedy about friendship... It's great, the creators have taken all that could perfectly mixed and received the output love, Simon — funny romantic and very touching film. All elements correctly spread out through the timing is very well in tune and interact. It is the movie is not afraid to speak to audience, it quietly mentions game of thrones, the beloved main character loves OREO cookies with orange filling, anonymous public servers in the Internet, Daniel Radcliffe coming in the nightmares to Simon all this and a lot of other references to mass pop culture will see in this film.
Well, I say the acting is no need. One of the stars from the sky is not enough, play's just fine. Although given that the final version was not staged ones, in which the actors played best friends were convinced that the shooting stopped, he was at this situation to talk about the game. Of course, the Director is good, just went to this unusual move.
I want to praise Josh Duhamel, from it was warm and soft father, whom often shot on a tear.
Was very amused by the banter makers over "proud gays" do a movie on extremely funny, not expected, thought — will cry the whole but not to laugh is good, that was wrong. Movie only on first glance seems predictable. I the whole movie had the same ideas about the main twist and the denouement of the picture. But I was wrong. Yes agree that most of the action in the film anticipate, but still I think we saw that movie, not for super complicated plot, but rather, because of the history and the emotions that we will call this story, even if it and predictable.
I am glad that had this movie. In recent screen more actively addresses issues of homophobia, and a "large greedy the death of the Studio" try to push in my projects more ostentatious reverence in the side of various minorities, the most showing THEIR inferiority, thus recognizing "otherness". But it's wrong! The main moral of this movie, which, incidentally, is very skillfully and carefully, it is that we change to remain themselves, even after some events that clearly change our lives in the root. And important for Simon was not to convince others that it the same, understand admit it — still someone has always been. Here about movie.
