Kate and Jeff here 45 years of living in love and harmony, but new news about the first strong love of Jeff, about the girl, Kate, who died tragically in a hike on Swiss Alps, they are subjected to the idyll of a serious test. "45 years," a film about regrets for made or not made in past, the correctness of the election we do throughout his life, their impact us and others, especially for our favorite, about how focusing on my past, tormenting themselves silly question "what if?" can destroy your present, which you need to truly cherish it is, that is peculiar to each person with no exceptions.

The only complaint from me picture this non-disclosure of its subject. No, not say that everything is bad, the message is transmitted accurately, only here too much attention paid to simple everyday things that do not carry significant meaning, but bring a significant imbalance in the overall narrative, often distracting from the main motives. In the rest of the "45 years" as long since said good, life, spiritual movie, full of right thoughts and wisdoms, which will be at the heart of each, although it would seem close to the senior generation. To the same in addition to an extremely original script, featuring great acting, beautiful camera work, finely-chosen music and exceptionally beautiful natural scenery.

married couple Kate and Jeff are preparing for the solemn celebration of the 45th anniversary with the day of his wedding. On the eve of this joyous event Jeff came a letter in which States that in the Swiss Alps found the body of his ex-girlfriend. Many years ago Jeff loved her and going on her to marry, however, in a joint camping trip in the mountains, it broke died. After reading this letter, Jeff is immersed in the memories, Kate begins to feel that she all these 45 years and could not go to Jeff first plan.

In fact, all major plot points of this film described in the synopsis, and it is not a spoiler, because this information the viewer gets in the first 10-15 minutes of the film. The rest of the timing is the talk around this situation and focusing on the emotions of the characters passed a good game Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtney. Usually I like emotional and delicate paintings, which are based in first to the feelings of the characters than on what is happening with them events, however, the film "45 years" I thought too "the thing-in-itself", a replica with a single stroke, after which neither the story nor the characters do not move anywhere at all. Well, Yes, we realized Kate suffers, knowing that 45 years and became Jeff's most important in his life man, but then what? It all? In this whole movie?

It may, of course, I'm not particularly impressed raised in this picture is a problem because they say, "I'm young and hot". And I really this stage of my life is just not able to understand what is the actual tragedy. Lived not grieve with each another forty-five years, grief does not know. Well, indulge the husband for a while the obvious and the expected attack of nostalgia. Well, life in and a life that stuff it happens. After all, it is a great tragedy when people with you connect your life plans unexpectedly dies. You can understand that the Blues, to wait out her to live and not to indulge in the wilds of soul-searching and reflection of the category of "Oh, I live your whole life with long I man." Yeah I please. Well, it would be necessary I set a reminder — 40 years to review the film. Maybe something more understand.

As a result, "45 years" — this is a very boring drama with very close to me a social message. But all this, of course, only with my bell, I his opinions do not impose. The actors play really well in part of the script, and directed with the task of coping on a very high professional level, which has received many prestigious awards. But for me is the case when acting is the most important advantage of the picture.

Among the movies that was nominated for an Oscar, the picture of "45 years" is lost, I only one nomination and then acting. Reading the description of the plot, and after watching the infomercial, I sat at watching the movie in anticipation to see or psycho-dramatic line of relationships of the main characters, who are trying on the eve of their 45 years of family life to cope with the past, burst into their lives; or to see the uncut author's vision of this story.

The idea forming in the basis for the movie is pretty interesting, it immediately adjusts to search for answers as the characters in the movie, so and the viewer. How our past does remain in past it can now so one day catch up with us, get to experience it again, leaving an imprint on reality. What worse — jealous real woman to memories of the distant love that will always be perfect, under-loved, because once was tragically cut short. How to get out of the idea you're just a substitute for the real thing which is not happened? What a wonderful cocktail that could be played.

The movie, on my taste, too fast for the plot, which is not even gives the viewer to watch the life of this couple to how they catch up with the news of the past. And after a rapid tie comes terribly slow narration of this story, in which the Director is not shows us all the psychology of the relationships of the couples, it remains frame. All that we see — normal life normal aging couples, it you insanely tired and bored. Leisurely narrative could give the painting a special charm, if they drove in such boredom. Where on 36 I was thinking to turn off the "movie", but took itself in hands and not in vain, because after its midpoint, the picture is gaining momentum and the final came. Almost without words the main character shows all my pain, because life never can be measured.

Long thought, in what color to paint a review, but chose neutral, — in the film there is an idea, there are interesting findings, but it — good acting Charlotte Rampling Tom Courtney.
