"The lies we say" — independent British drama film, such as elements of crime Thriller, considered in the context of social and religious backgrounds. The main inspiration was a Mitu Misra, who became a Director and screenwriter of "the Lies that we speak", at this Misra was an absolute newcomer. Using the same when writing the script Misra had Iven glass and Andy McDermott, perhaps, as "known" in the world of cinema people like myself Mitu Misra. Main role in the film played by Gabriel Byrne, Sibylla Deen, mark Eddie and Jean Uddin. In as the guest stars were Harvey Keitel, from which is only a few episodes in the flashbacks.

It all starts with that a Donald (Byrne), the Executive assistant of a fairly wealthy man in the name demi (Keitel), is forced to take home of the employer, the girl at the name amber (Dean). In fact, Dean was mistress demi, but now, demi went to better world nothing should cast a shadow on his reputation. Beautiful amber almost not resist and, hastily collecting things, goes along with the Donald, who should take her home. But Donald haven't know that amber there no waiting, and her ex-husband still has to her feelings, but amber was forcibly given in marriage, not being able to oppose his deeply religious parents, because amber was born in a Muslim family. Amber is immersed in a world of alienation and fear, and feel it Donald, despite the own personal problems, decides to somehow help and make life easier for the lovely amber.

You can just say that the drama "the Lies we say" a pretty sad sight, what else contributes to musical accompaniment. According to the creators is like we had immersed in the atmospheric flow patterns, as to give us on a subconscious level to understand what in a world where live the main characters of the film the loneliness, constant stress and even violence have become an essential and almost pushed out any positive emotions. It seems to be amber Donald found a friend in the other that can somehow brighten them to dull, existence, but the apparent lack of experience the creators of "the Lies that we speak" has played a major role and it turned out an ordinary painting, which does not Shine any more than limited release impressions on thematic festivals. In General, unimportant film whose fate is to remain unnoticed.

And then feel sorry for that the actors of the old school are now forced to play in similar kind of movie. Gabriel Byrne for another twenty or thirty years ago was a prominent figure, taking part in several highly visible projects, when he has always remained a "world actor", acting in different countries have different Directors, but always in remained professional and with a high degree of credibility embodied their characters. In case "the Lies we say" claims to Byrne no no, he all also trying to accurately convey the nature of your character, but weakness in the scenario not give the end to understand what same moves it Donald, what is the motivation he sees dealing with Amber and what do you expect in the future. Sibyl Dean, of course, a very beautiful girl with exotic good looks, she was shown dramatic promise of its heroine, sometimes she is even very possible, but still looking for her amber more I look at external data than for the game actress, and if so it turns out that means your talent it is not revealed. And that's what once again reminded yourself in the best of times so this is mark Eddie and even the performance of a serious character in this is clearly reflected comedic notes.

In General, if not socio-religious background and the tragedy of what is happening, then "the Lies we say" it would be possible with certainty be attributed to failed projects, which is asked only one question: "Why is it was filmed?". But even with this condition "Lies we say" — this, the most part, empty time, because the film does not carry any artistic value, but that dramatic element that the types of heroes — all the root of the banal, so the whole film are in indifferent as to the events and only the ending is a little emotional.
