A screen adaptation of a stage play Augusta Wilson's "Fences" is shown in the best taste of Broadway theatre in particularly due to the cast overpower have more than 150 productions of this play.

Given these theatrical features in the film, you can observe a large number of monologues, a lot of domestic philosophy and outstanding discussions of the human life of black people in district of the 1950s. All this I want to see if You fan of similar genre. The plot of the play gives more ground for hesitation, and so simple the characters seem so accessible that you really believe in all their history.


- Denzel Washington.

Speaking of this luminary actor channel, can the ovation no doubt that his performance is always excellent. In all the films. Here he is definitely be able to pass the rigid, conservative, sometimes nasty, Troy Maxson, is not the best father and husband, claims to him there. Only one rapture at each replica and movement.

- Viola Davis.

The actress long ago won my heart, her game — the rays of the sun or a drink of spring water. She diamond, this role is most precious. Her Oscar she earned, though sorry in the category "Best supporting actress". In this film she has played rose Maxson, loving, loyal, caring and sincere wife and mother, which if the viewer want to hug and talk about the naive subjects. Viola plays so much that some of the scenes overshadows the rest actors and takes the entire frame for himself, even when it the silhouette is not takes the focus of the camera. Bravo!

- Joan Of Andapa.

The actor played the son of Troy and rose, plays very nice, not to say anything bad in his side. I believe it game.

The rest of the cast is also not behind his colleagues, however, the roles have them too outstanding.

The overall picture of film — wonderful adaptation of this play. Best play that was delivered from all that I saw the Broadway stage. The best actors. The Oscar more than deserved.

The film "Fences"(Fences) shot by the same play of August Wilson and the main story line in similar to the play by Vladimir Gurkin and a beautiful film Vladimir Menshov "Love and Pigeons". And here very interesting. The play "Love and doves" was written in 1981, and Fences for the first time shown in 1983 and, by the way, since 1985 napoluchala many American awards.

Stolen it or just coincided — we know, but matches a lot. Not going to retell the story, who you will look, you will certainly find many Parallels. But there are essential differences, on which, in fact, this write-up.

"Love and pigeons" — it's a bright film about love good family relationships, where happen errors but saves all of it is Love. That is, feelings are not posted on the show, however, lying deep in the hearts of heroes.

Fences — it's just a clever story about a callous man, living in the thumb and, it seems, anyone around him as not loving. Family, if it can be called a family, not saved because of feeling, and because "as necessary", because "be humble and be content with what is". Pathetic scenes in the end of the film — none at all about. He can not in harmony neither with the character nor as to which he brought his family.

The film is a play saturated in the unnatural dialogue, which is embedded in lips those people who are not in able to utter such speeches. A profound allegory with death fence — this is the traditional pathos of black in America. "Talking" main character with death is boring, because no death around the main character not spinning pull stale half-educated man to a social subtext that, apparently, mean the Academy featured this film on Oscar, turns — not convincing. No one in his actions are not guilty, but his own. No white, no social injustice in not involved.

The wife of the protagonist, received an Oscar, got it, apparently, only at already included in the Hollywood tradition — to give an Oscar to offend any black person. No great game boring face dangled out full movie in the frame(and then the role of the second plan?) no.

The differences in "Love and pigeons" and"Fences" in the mentality of their authors in a social backlash. In Russia people like those shown in the movie "the Fence", would have caused antipathy. In America — reaction dual. To white people the ratio would be same as Russia, but as they are black, it someone cry on the gray lives of the characters.

Give the movie a negative rating. Stiffly, unnaturally, biased, boring.

The fence is a wonderful movie Denzel Washington on the same play of August Wilson, for which the latter won the Pulitzer prize in 1987. Wilson and is the author of the script, which he wrote live before you die.

This film will show you the history of Troy Maxson. The person who is trying to exist in the world. The person who tries to be a good father and not to repeat the mistakes of his Father. A man who tries to give their children all the best. Who wants children to understand how he lived and what the end came. Want that would the children understand how hard it is to get the money. Wants, wants, wants. I think that many of the theme will be familiar. But not all. It is not all show this wonderful life movie. It just what it did to me in the soul, for close. Do all topics which are considered by this film, I close. They are so real and vital that you just not can not touch.

I really liked the dialogues. Loved this component. I read about this film and even the trailer is not look, but I knew that is a play. It is not bad. You know, a very big difference between a theatre production and feature films. And need very well-suited to turn one in the second. And everything very harmoniously out. And the actors brilliantly showed the story and conveyed emotion.

This film combat racism. There is the struggle is different. The struggle of fathers and children. The struggle of man with himself, in the basis. The person who is mired in pessimism. And which is not want to see the changes in the world which is not want to change anything in yourself. Which is not sees close to it left of his father. And what drives children. Not giving yourself to breathe, he smothers and his family. And that I can to blame. I just feel sorry for him. The main character, who is superbly played by Denzel reminded me of my father. Knowing the situation not by hearsay, I can't someone to blame. Yes not need it. Not we given this movie. This wonderful movie, filmed at the wonderful script worth a look. It will be close. Maybe not all, but will.
