The film was planned from the daughter 12 years, but the rebellious teen got up to position refused to watch in the result looked wife and son under. While I watched many times wife and I looked at each other like, interesting, cool, unexpected. And moments, all that is called stunned, and sat open-mouthed.

The film is very well shown moments of life exactly as it happens. There is a parallel established inner peace, which leads to certain thoughts. And despite that in the film, the tragedy, it turns out the magic of the movie when seeing the grief you become more glad. its simple happiness. On that thought, I itself in the movie caught very clearly. What you warmth that we are together, we healthy continue to live. After this film, many small home issues can depart on the second plan. So think buntarya teenagers can learn to me too adjusted if the process is still not running.

This film or book, I recommended to see the school psychologists on the city of the conference of psychologists. After the movie I wanted to read the book that would deeper dive into the imagination of the author and do not have been able to uncover in the film.

After the creation of his imaginary friends, the formation of alternative reality, it is one of chips of our consciousness that would have to go through the situation, and this is a very interesting, unusual, and also dangerous, because there is always a chance to lose touch with real reality...

Abandoned cemetery, the old Church, sinister voice, reviving the monster. The trailer and first minutes of the film allow the viewer to something terrible, frightening, horrifying of all horrors that might fall on the share of twelve-year-old Conor O Molly. So is. Conor was faced with the worst that can happen in a child — his mother is terminally ill with cancer.

The "voice of monster" — dark and cruel tale about the collision of the real and the fantastic, white and black. About real world, where there is no clear distinction between good and evil.

I'm one of those read the book, amazing writer Patrick ness "monster Voice". Her history of creating scary not less than history the story. The original idea of the fourth official's Board shows Siobhan, the writer that died of cancer. And Patrick Nessa had to make great efforts to perpetuate her idea and the Siobhan the fourth official's Board shows in his work. So and Director of the Bayonne put all force, to show on screen the essence of the book.

And that he turned. Unobtrusive, without inspirational words, constant music on the background it is shown as lives and that is the boy, whose dying mother. The stories told by the monster, made in multiplicando version. Specifically, so that the audience itself was in a fantasy world filled with good and evil toon. And then and Conor were in for a surprise... Everything has a reverse side of the coin. The killer-Prince can be a good ruler, the witch-stepmother casatenovo the priest to abandon the faith, the visible man to be invisible. And the boy to hold fast to the hands of mother and let it last journey.

The dual nature is hidden and the characters. Their it is impossible to discuss or, conversely, to agree with their behavior. Conor behaves as a stubborn naughty boy, but he desperately tries not to interfere with the mother and family. Grandma seems callous bitch, but it is only its shell — and she loves the grandson and daughter, she's just in its own way communicates with people. And even the father of Conor, who lives in another country, can be called a bastard? He is torn between two families, in the book he fell ill on top, and daughter. Then try not to break it...

The acting is great. Beautiful felicity Jones just don't know in the image of a skinny, exhausted dying woman, But not rest, if not tell about Lewis McDougall playing the main character. Shortly before the start shooting the actor's mother died. One can only guess how give it the role of Conor. Maybe he expressed his emotions. Clean and genuine.

A very strong and heartwarming film.

"Life is so sad, but we all her live"

"Little life" of Yanagihara

It would be better "summon monster", not know why the Russian car stopped on the neutral "voice." For children to which addresses the choice of the hero and fantasy themes — too bitter and sick movie. A thoughtful adult audience is unlikely to interested in same reasons: the hero and the theme. The format is called creativity, which is presumably not will find a mass audience. The film is completely unformatted and amazingly, magically, incredibly good.

There's nothing I knew him when he went to the movies. No about the star the cast: Liam Neeson, Sigourney weaver and felicity Jones; any of the book of Patrick ness, according to which is cleared. And not even thought about than will. The problems of growing up I guess, no? Standard mystical fantasy starts: the boy wakes up from a nightmare where can not hold the woman's hand and she breaks into the gaping abyss of the grave. "It is unlikely that a girlfriend, more of a mom — connects trained associative method grandfather Freud, logical unit, — So the movie will be about the boy, whose mom died and he blames himself that failed to keep her in the world of the living."

Audience satiated arrogance is enough for a couple of minutes, then the hero is going to school in the road looking in the room where sleeping short-haired girl girl. Second frame, but snobbery ranges vapour; ustaivaet and instantly comes the magic of movies. He just goes to school, and fall upon me feeling unbearably concentrated truth of what is happening. An immediate "here and now" — everything is real, but it's a miracle I can see being distant lands.

That feeling after not going to move nor the phenomenon of drevochelovek nor the deliberate conditionality of the incarnation tell them stories. I can still ignore scenes grandmother, perceiving them exactly as scene (with all the love Sigourney weaver). And is easy father (although Toby Kebbell, here is much better than in the idiotic "Ben Hur"). But when the frame of the boy and the mother, the voice of common sense ringing. Not able to communicate, cheerfully jumping at the screen a month ago in  the"Outlaw-single" felicity Jones with a young woman, dying in eyes.

She lives his little life and the boy, Conor, lives and the level of audience involvement in what is happening beyond all reasonable limits. You cease to be who looks becoming them. No, not the most coveted attraction of unprecedented belonging, to feel like a Princess of the Galaxy or a Billionaire Genius Playboy much nicer.

With the difference the last couple of characters and never or when no materialized in your life, and the pain of each of us. And no matter what everyone has, there is a universal algorithm that allows comfort and utility. To spend through myself, not becoming a life vessel. Courage slogans: "What does not kills us, that makes you stronger" in reality, often embodied in: "What is not kills, cripples". This film from the number of artifacts, transforming what can maim in the, the strength-giver.
