The film "a single man" — gorgeous, stunning to inside picture. The picture painted by the skillful artist in colours of ocher, Golden tones, warm shades gradually replaced cold as in life one bright feelings, moments of joy for replaced by feelings of loneliness and severe sadness.

Every frame — a work of art, subtle and flawless work.

All the dialogues of the characters can be dismantled for quotes for a view is impossible to realize the depth of the film, raising a truly global problem.

The protagonist, having lost the most important thing was his life - a loved one, more than not able to feel anything for real, he lives and only exist. Love George and Jim was a most neither there is a real contrast with the feelings are already deceased partner creates a relationship of Charlotte, a longtime and close friend of the protagonist. It kind of love is both tragic and absurd, she lives in the past in the subjunctive mood, she never were really loved, it and accuses this is George. In addition, a clearly visible contrast between the true and false values in the way a neighborhood family, the head of which the callous man who wants the death of the main character because of his sexual orientation, his daughter — the blond girl, not understand the causes of hatred to his father; wife is a wonderful woman. Husband removed from her, when she wants to hug with dirty hands.

The feeling of love above of disgust, it is far the framework of the material world as and the beauty of each moment, which is sometimes in the most terrible things, she in every detail to which forces us to focus our attention to the film. The viewer sees her eyes of the protagonist, who clings to her, trying again to find for ourselves the meaning of life, because in his life meaning was only when he felt it was someone close. And in this difficult period, when he is ready to kill a, next appears a young man, Kenny — cheerful and sensitive. It again awakens in the main character's feelings, which he and thought to return, because love is like the bus will come next.

After watching this movie on my soul is, how it seems to me, an indelible mark. Life can end at any time outside depending desire master. To be the master of your life, so appreciate every moment, because what is now will soon become a reminder of the past "If not enjoy the present, the there is nothing more to expect from the future, everything is logical," the film teaches that real life is something that we have given second, you can't live in the past so well as and you can't live in anticipation of the future. After all, the future — death is what happens all that brings together all the people.

Despite the tragic ending, the film "a single man" not draws the soul to the bottom of the weight of sadness. It like a breath of fresh air, bringing in life is clear, widely opening their eyes to the reality.

"A single man" — this is a film that, on my view, is really capable of hitting, forced to take a deep breath and think seriously.

In this tape, the minimum system characters, this is not will see petrozuata individuals, low action. The footage thoughtfully and slowly flow through the consciousness of the observer. But even when at first glance the perfect unhurried pace to stop the action the hand does not rise. Of course, the tape must watch until the end, not so much waiting for event interchanges, as in hoping to find some sort of emotional solace, or inspiration, or even something...

The hero of the movie in played by the brilliant Colin Firth not one — he together with his loneliness. Have half an hour later we are able to evaluate the courage, which is showing daily this (or any other) single person. He makes himself in the morning along with a shirt and shoes to put on a social face, and smile, when necessary in General contact with other people despite his own feelings. And from my own feelings in this man is only pain — pain where had not hurt. Because before it the place was occupied by another person. And fuck that fact that truly lonely people — this rogue, time-bombs for others, it like ulcers on the body replicated the American dream or simply walking human fears! Much easier to mask it with the formalities than to take a daily shot and wear imagine his loneliness at the squeezing a drop of life.

The heroine Dzhulliany Moore just of the first. Deeply unhappy woman in fact, it is trying to convince itself that not all more over, that there is, in hope... Looking at Charlie, experiencing grief... don't know if it but his longtime good friend... maybe... the Actress coped with role really remember appearing in the minimum number of episodes.

The play of light in the film is an exemplary detailed procedure, sterile-accurate arrows on the clock... Again, saying "a single man" I was inspired, impressed and pleased. Alone recommended... yeah and for all who anyway...

Tom Ford is a genius. Agree that so skillfully and stylishly to beat such a controversial picture truly difficult, and what is the most interesting — Ford is found.

"A single man"- interesting story, challenging society and its notions of morality.

The first impression of the film is: "Thin, with incredibly impeccable taste, gorgeous, piercing, burning a soul...".

Rarely come across a painting, which could build from the feelings of the viewer just knot, like a tangled thread spit these feelings as wanted it is amazing.

Would be a crime not to mention acting. The actors wanted to a standing ovation, breaking into whistle loud cries of gratitude. Here that, and the skill of the actors in this film is undeniable!

The only drawback, although less is difficult to call, for me was that after watching the film, the world around me began to feel me too pale and faded, not enough of those most of Ford's paints, those of the accents, those burgeoning moments.

If you move away from the visual aesthetics of the film and think about it was filled most of history, still interesting. We are immersed in an amazing time in an amazing place to amazing characters... Not going to reveal all the card, I will say briefly: "a single man" is a story of love and friendship, the story of strong feelings and colors that accompany it.

Thank you Tom Ford for 96 minutes of bliss.
