This film, I love. Watched twice, difference in 10 years. I would recommend it anyone who likes deep and thoughtful movie, but not a single shooter. Each teenager. So he love and of responsibility for their actions. About how the fragility of life and how fleeting happiness can be. The main idea of how I think it to teach us to appreciate those who are nearby. If love doesn't let some silly superstition to stand on your way. Do not be afraid to love. But if you — odd, go away, don't let the two to be happy together. It is impossible to get into other people's relationships and destroy them. the Price may be too high — redemption in length life.

The first part of the film is very beautiful, flight. The atmosphere of first love and expectations of happiness. But a terrible mistake destroys everything, in the second part of the film the action takes place on war.

Great acting, especially James McAvoy! In this film, I discovered this wonderful actor. although I saw it before, "particularly dangerous", but it image in "Redemption" was very moving. And in the time of the second viewing its performance amazes not less. Piercing blue eyes look straight in the soul! The highest skill of the artist — without words to convey the depth of the feelings of the character, and James's possible, its glance chills to the shivers!

Keira Knightley is also quite on his place, you know that many do not like, but I have claims to its the game there.

Favorite scenes — sensual scene from the fountain, a moment of intimacy in the library (how beautiful and went not removed!), touching meeting in a cafe in time of war, a terrific five-minute panorama of the retreat of British troops from of Dunkirk (shot in one take, without any glue with a huge crowd!), the scene when adult, Brioni talks with the wounded dying, as his bride.

In General, it is a great film about life itself, watch. don't regret it for sure! Even if you cry, that it is likely, as it will be an unforgettable experience!

The story of two loving people (McAvoy, Knightley), separated fatal mistake sister of the protagonist (Ronan).

Exceptional, complex, made on the highest level directing the work of an Englishman, Irish and all those who did a hell of a job in the best sense of the word. A story about how small inaccuracy begets ignorance, injustice and crime. The lovers are separated by war and occur only on the pages of the book adult, Brioni Tallis (Vanessa Redgrave), who all life not able to apologize to your sister and Robbie.

Now about the actors.

James McAvoy and keira Knightley.

James, how I think outplayed Knightley. She did for his role, but her was just (was at her role is stronger). But here McAvoy has experienced this styles, emotions indicate nearly every frame. Benedict cumberbatch in a pair Juno temple(BAFTA nomination as a rising star) played skillfully and truthfully filthy rich scoundrel and weak-willed fool (otherwise call it game can).

And the most outstanding performance in this film of course Saoirse Ronan and Vanessa Redgrave.

Young and already famous Ronan in the age of 13, played the way can't even to play half of Hollywood. The Irish they themselves a very charismatic, open to your game(Brosnan, Mini, Gleason senior and Junior), and this lady obvious one of the future of the most successful Actresses of all "chinaland". I admire the girls game. Of course I noticed that all criticism. Deserved the nomination and win (IFTA).

Vanessa Redgrave was part of this film for a few minutes. I believe that this is the great actress can play anyone anywhere in any time without training.

It is a drama about life and how it is important to say "sorry" and to repent.

The first and perhaps most importantly, that it's keira Knightley in the title role. As film I was previously impressed by the book and already formed their own idea of heroes, then seeing the poster was very angry. Because keira Knightley is primarily who? Right, Elizabeth Swan, lover of will Turner and the secret passion of Jack Sparrow.

Accordingly, the impression was spoiled in his head was constantly getting some residual effects of the  Pirates, especially during the time of the kissing scenes, so and were now where something POPs up, shaking the dreadlocks and slyly glancing painted eyes, johnny Depp or Orlando bloom crying, in again the convict lover in treason. To be honest, I would still to see in this role at least, so to say "worn-out" actress.

But James McAvoy has fully redeemed this dissonant moment, he was so organic, so this was the most Robbie, first young love son servants, and later scarred by the trials of a soldier living only hope for reunion with favorite the opportunity to begin to live a new life that to represent anyone else in this role is simply impossible.

So, of course, pleased to the film music composed by Dario Marianelli. Probably not in vain the Director speaks to this composer have not first time.

Second that hurts your eyes-it is a disease that plagues almost all modern cinematography  - called gollivudskogo. In some places it just squeaks on the teeth, by the way, in many respects thanks to Kiera Knightley. At some point, even in the head comes to mind "don't let they decided to make a happy ending".

And in conclusion, I want to recommend to watch "Atonement" alone or with a loved/Oh boy/girlfriend, if you already at least a little unloved/s, then it is better to choose a different movie.
