Sad and worried about something that is not save even bill Skarsgard. Of course, it is possible to admire here, and even smile as his character called a vampire due to the fact that he lives the night life, suffering from intolerance of sunlight. But better to reconsider the same "Hemlock grove" than to spend an hour more than on the snoozer. Personally, I nothing acquired myself, watching this movie. Understand about than he. About finding themselves that you need to break out of the shackles, despite the circumstances we need to fight for your dream. But all already times, "Battle Creek" does not reinvent the wheel. But observe the events of the bored, I had to rewind it, frankly. And also to anticipate the moves that for any movie a bad sign.

Tedious conversations, though with a sense of tedious walking through the town, sluggish action, which also was predictable. And mother of the main character I was pathetic. Here so they, the children, and go, believing that the parents keep them on a leash, and they want to be free, and parents are needed. Sad.

Bill — a talented actor and here is acts out his character, but one bill for a little in order to hold the attention. And I'd just not noticed "Battle Creek", if not wanting to see the acting Skarsgard. I think that will forget this film has a week later.

From a technical point of view "Balchik", of course, is fully consistent with Director's statement "we have had no money, but we tried holding...". The author's low-budget indie movie, only two years after the festival premiere finally found a way to more or less wide audience, but managed to gather in mostly positive reviews from critics on two kinofest during a limited release last fall — it is.

The plot — history of personal growth of a young boy, Henry pearl, living in a provincial American town Batlike under the wing hypersubtlety moms Talula, which is not alien pribuhnut and not really picky in intimate relationships. The boy is quiet, modest, inclined to artistic creativity and still suffering with a skin disease, which is hiding from sun is the nightlife, which takes place mostly on the gas station where Henry works under the beginning of an old friend of his father, Arthur, and the clock coffee.

The main male role is played by Swedish actor bill Skarsgard and it is definitely a godsend for caste — it is a frame, the film immediately stops being low-budget. It Henry — sweet, gentle, shy, peaceful Nashik with a wonderful smile, but when he Popper my mother with accusations that she was full of shit and actually devoured its young life, I seriously worried that the population of Batlike here now reduced by one stupid aunt. And he was crying, poor thing, Oh! And Henry dog benny! And what a wonderful, warm chemistry has developed between him and the main character — Alison (Claire van der BPO), which falls in Balchik to attempt to escape their own problems... the New slogan of the film (which replaced the original — "Find your light") sounds like "Some scars do not heal" — indeed, life had marked them not only Henry: in the history of the girl's traumatic in any sense of the relationship with a very nasty bastard, which we, of course, also see (played by Toby Hemingway).

Won't be a spoiler to say that the scars are drawn to the scars, and the meeting with Alison seriously changes the life of Henry. To he has existed almost somnambulist, wandering circle not seeing prospects — it now ready to defend their right to self-determination, true, love, private life beyond Batlike. "I don't want to hide anymore" — says it Alison this phrase indicates its intention as could not be more clear.

... Of course not without cons. Statement — well... four out of five: torn, in some places, driven by the pace, not feeling unified fabric, and is — sort of a patchwork quilt; the characters sometimes nearestcity objectively, the finale leaves not just a lot, but a lot of questions. Not all actors make it to trims the lead actors — for example, Paula Malcomson (Tallulah), right on disappointed clear smell of Amateur theatre. But still basic emotions with the display — wooo and mimimi, and this is important.

7.5 out of 10

For bill, Claire, doggie benny and on-screen chemistry!

Perhaps it is the movie, which I needed to the last few months. Full set: drama, romance, elements of hurt/comfort. Henry in the execution of the bill is something something, the concentration of cuteness. And not often shaking, worrying about the character. Glad Henry was able to solve their problems.

It should be noted that the first time the heroine Claire van der BOM, Alison, showed self-sustaining, that is not the standard "the lady in distress." She coped with all.

The chemistry of the characters are so expressive that they are beginning to empathize and to worry.

Let the ending is predictable, but he joins in the very atmosphere of the film, leaving the characters as would be exempt from oppressive. As they say, in a bright future.
