Everyone who any deep thought about the spiritual problems of the modern world, finds in uncivilized countries and settlements a certain charm. Sort of a long lost oasis, a strange "wild" life.
This film the audience can perceive in different ways. Many of us probably look down and think of heroes disregard: "the savages", however, the savagery shown by the Director is absolutely not is negative, rather the opposite — a tinge of admiration.
Because people living in such inhumane conditions contain so much Human, strong and ready to fight and to live always and everywhere, something uneducated, but the wise... much closer to their original nature than apathetic civilized man, dragging his essence from a bright moment to a bright moment, living for experiences. Experience us "breath of life" and we forgot that life is not a breath. She single indivisible. Modern civilized man is sick, his life is protected from all sides. Have it has many of the rights to property nemuselo.. It under all the hood, restless and lost, looking for myself a sense, coming up with them. It all relaxed and limp. He is ready to leave the house, ready to leave home for the sake of new experiences... just like that. By clicking the whim in the head.
Another thing these people, people, home they have to protect not only the encroachments of other people, but and nature. It would seem that foolish. — they are sanitation, apparel and food, they are flying through all ago, in the flooded village. For many, this is a suicide, for them — that's life. And when we the concept of morality and of morality stronger erased, for their cowardice — to flee own home, to break away from their roots. And this quality more than anything light, more satiety, sloth and jumped the comfort in a foreign land.
And this little adult child then cranky, it has an incredible amount of responsibility already know life. And these people are able to think for yourself a part of the Cosmos, it is through such burning lives the Space becomes a single entity and not bursting at the seams.
The film is not reach masterpiece — too, he is in same time is not the documentary, because she naked, and filled with it there are so many elusive metaphysical foundations. However, the latter exists rather in the eye of the beholder.
*any review is often a collection of personal impressions about the movie, but not trying to qualify for the directing explanation of the film.
What power has the imagination of a child? Sometimes we already in the adult years don't notice or, better to say, not want to see the statements of the child, as regarded their meaningless. But don't just an expression of "the Mouths of Babes goes the truth." Sometimes we just not think about their words. But if you learn them and listen to hear the can be absolutely great things. A similar idea was laid in the basis of the unforgettable drama of Ben Zeitlin's "beasts of the Southern wild".
synopsis a Six-year Happpy lives with with his father vinkom in a small community located on the island, which is about to absorb the ocean water. All the last years only Vink did Hashpipe taught the art of survival, rarely showing parental love and affection. But then one day, an unknown disease mows Vinca, and then the girl decides to whatever any was to find his mother, who in due time had saved her father.
acting Film differs in that in the movie involved only debutants, i.e., directed by Ben Zeitlin risked a lot, if wanted to push my painting at the global film market, and it has paid off. Still very young, but not years talented black actress Kavengine Wallis showed all the skills of acting, embodying in his character the image is not just a smart girl, but grown-up child, who, though through the prism of a child's imagination, but not less than, learns and understands the reality of the surrounding world. Not mention the game is also a debutant in the movie, Dwight Henry who played the father of the main character, a man of mystery, for rough look which hides a caring father ready to go to sacrifice for his beloved daughter.
Directing For Ben Zeitlin, "beasts of the Southern wild" — this is the debut in feature films I. can say a very very successful. The painting belongs to the genre of fantastic realism, so the audience familiar with this genre over the film recall the work of such legendary Directors with a world name as Terrence Malick, Emir Kusturica and Andrei Tarkovsky. In viewing time viewers should disconnect your brain, because that you will see, can produce a dual impression. The thing that the Director has successfully shown us the world through the eyes of six year old child, but however, Zeitlin a very unusual way has managed to weave in the picture of fantastic ideas imminent end of the world, judging by the scenes from the giant prehistoric animals.
Script After watching I dismantled the wild curiosity and the desire to read the play Lucy Alibar, according to the grounds of which was script is cleared itself film. The movie will impress the audience with the originality of the story. The action takes place somewhere in Louisiana on the island of the Bathtub, which practically abandoned, T. C. it will be called water. The main character and her father live in absolutely terrible conditions, and it is unclear how they all manage to survive. The main character Halpape, confident that all the universe is interrelated, I'm sure it is my fault that the world is ending. To not hurt close to her people Hashpipe trying to fix.
Summary "beasts of the Southern wild" — is one better and the most striking works of 2012 and perhaps the best ambitious project of Sundance. The plot takes you in another space and time after watching you unlikely will face former world eyes.
