A middle-aged owner of a small shop for the sale of photographic equipment Tony Webster receives a letter from which recognizes that woman name of Sarah Ford, Veronica's mother, the girl, where he found in my youth, after the death left him a legacy of a certain object. This subject is the diary of Adrian Finn, a former friend of Tony's, for which Veronica left him the. Document is from Veronica, but leave a diary she wants. Tony decides to find Veronica and talk it but at the same time to find out why diary of Adrian he bequeathed to the woman he saw only once in life how the suicide of Adrian is due to one angry letter, hearts sent Tony in his youth.

As in a situation with an adaptation of the book of Ian McEwan "On the shore" translated by the language of cinema titled literary source (in this case, the winner of the Booker prize, the novel of the English writer and literary critic Julian Barnes), built on the subtleties of inner feelings and thoughts, is a very tedious task. The never the less, the author of the festival hit "the Lunchbox" Ritesh arrogant Batra took up the case, but these psychological difficulties were clearly not as strong as and writer Nick Payne (TV's "Crown"), only perestanovki major plot twists and turns of the novel. Barnes ' book was not only narrated by "the detective without the crimes", masterfully holding the attention of the reader, but in various aspects of the studied personality of a middle-aged man, pereosmyslenie his life and realizing that many of the mistakes of youth are not correct, departed friends not to return, with a large number of reflections, internal reactions and comparisons. The film Badly though obediently follows the letter Lioznova (with minor cosmetic changes, like non-linear narrative with the flashbacks and the change of orientation of the daughter of Tony), but is proving to be muddy and very dull, dry utterly melodrama, sluggish and boring lead the viewer to the mystery of the suicide of Adrian. In addition, movie in the final briskly all puts the places (although incoherence in the images of many heroes, in particular, Veronica and some of the plot moves, it has "merit" of Barnes), and hold the audience's attention and create a full, causing a serious empathy for the characters, not set in the head of the corner.

Most of the important issues and thoughts raised in the novel, Bathro not interested in how and overall depth, for him the only important thing is following the event and create some atmosphere, but this is too little to a strong drama. It would seem that the case can save a stellar cast, but from the lead actors to demonstrate that something could only Jim Broadbent whose a great game is the only engine that pushes this sluggish action. The rest just go to the same emotions, especially for Rampling, which play nothing important is given invited, according to all, solely because of her a kind of haughty contempt, and cold expression.

What is most serious in old age? This thinking about youth. The protagonist of the story — old man which is your small shop camera. The man in the divorce, but with his ex-wife have his friendly relations. Most importantly, that he has a daughter who's already going to give birth, and he will become a grandfather. Like it was clear and clear the life of an elderly man, until he it's not a strange notification of the inheritance. The hero must obtain a personal diary of the his young. Meeting with the shadows of the past is always painful, and the man should plunge into the memories of their youth, at a time when there was a tragedy in our lives, long-buried secrets, and the hero face-to-face will have them to face...

I curious about this new movie, but I had mixed opinion about it. Something like that, then not at all. The Director hails from India Ritesh Batra famous for its film "the Lunchbox", recently shot a new film, and it undoubtedly attracts to itself attention, after all, the main role in it played by such distinguished British actors as Jim Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling. Once you understand that the picture is promising, because these actors are in something dubious is not will be removed. After watching the same this movie is up to Kona, I want to say that the film has turned bitter and very cold. Definitely, it the story is deep with its intricacies of the feelings of the characters and shocking secrets, but I relate this drama with a neutral position.

Broadbent always plays great. In this film, his not to know. It a master of disguise and difficult roles. I fell in love with this actor after the biographical drama "iris," and Jim received my recognition master dramatic roles. His elderly hero in this new movie he played convincingly. Its hero is far from simple character with complex with their cockroaches in the head. An unexpected turn of events opens his eyes much, it becomes softer, understanding, on everything starts to look with different eyes. Rampling always gorgeous go the role of the cold, haughty women with their simple stories, and this story of her it was nice to see.

The movie is divided into currently memories of the past of the main character, analyze it. The picture is true and with a double bottom, and I love those movies. But I thought it enough of the atmosphere, deeper direction. From seen wanted more, more drama and emotions. After all, the history is very tragic. In any case, the picture is not failed, but and the masterpiece it can not be named. It for fans of the genre and the actors.

"Premonition of the end" — British, cold drama of 2017. Memories for you can descend, the past can suddenly return, that hold the line like or otherwise have to do, how would not painful it.

Divorced retired, Tony lives alone. The only thing that he does it keeps the tiny shop at the sale of photographic technique and sometimes communicates with the adult daughter. Once he gets the letter about the legacy left by his mother the former first girlfriend Veronica. Tony forty years had not talked to call memories young love is like an avalanche cover sixty years of the man. Tony will have to solve the riddle of inheritance, and not once scroll the head of its youth...

The film is based on the novel by Julian Barnes and the structure is a "Zebra crossing" of fragments of the past and the present. Well-built suspense, a slow rhythm, heartfelt performance of actors allow us to feel human emotions, burdened with remorse for the sins of youth and with them to experience catharsis in the final.

Humane, lyrical film.
