The plot of this film grew out of classic British dystopian "1984" Orwell. In the future, power will belong to the bureaucratic machine is closely adherent to the security apparatus (police, intelligence forces). One of its cogs is Sam Lauri, file clerk, which, despite the high position of his family, prefers the life of a simple worker. Every night, he sees vivid dreams, where in the image of Prince charming Sam saves a stranger from the monsters, but once he sees her in the building of his Ministry. Her name is Jill, she is trying to get the dungeons of her husband Archibald Buttle detained on error, for allegedly irregular repair of electrical appliances. On were really looking for Tuttle, but in the machine there is a misprint and in the end, Jill was left a widow. Moreover, their searches it throws a shadow on the Ministry, which in order to avoid further public decides to remove Jill. Learning about this, Sam hacking the database of the Ministry with the purpose to prevent the execution of the order.

Despite the traditional giliarovsky sur: a grotesque building, a ridiculous situation, desperately smiling people, the tape evokes the horror. At least watching "Brazil" clearly understand that everything I saw is not fantasy, but a future that will inevitably come, because it is the circuits are already clearly visible. In the giant corridors of bureaucratic organization pointless move thousands of people, who, holding under the mouse reams of paper, carry them from floor to floor.

There is a feeling that this whole cycle does not make sense, it seems that it is continuous movement, which supports the life of this colossus. If she thought for the second will cease to produce tons of paper, cease to produce instructions and guidance, it immediately will give tips. Therefore, people should straining all power, rushes back and forth, running without stopping to rest, fulfilling orders, only to everything continued to work, contrary to logic and common sense. The human body is similar to the worms that crawl along the stone guts of the monster that would to get his stomach where the creature will digest their soul, turning it into his servants — beings devoid of emotion, the purpose of which the Ministry bessmylennyh force.

Should stay on the main character. Sam attempts to help the widow would involve him in conflict with the bureaucratic system in the struggle which man has no no chance, cause respect to this character. Don't see it immaturity, after all, not matter what he deftly managed to work practically with any problem (boss he prays, because Sam can fend off any document) in the same situation repairmen he was powerless against them. rudeness.

Probably the reason is that by nature it is a dreamer, but such people are ill-suited to life. Before us is a rather ordinary person who, however, imagines himself a knight, starts a campaign for the glory of your beautiful ladies. But the reason Sam is invincible only in dreams, in reality its an attempt to help turns into a terrible disaster.

The tape is dominated by dark hues, whether it is the walls of the corridors or the building. All the atmosphere is oppressing people (for example: a huge reception in which the petitioner is literally lost), its purpose in that would indicate the insignificance of the individual before the invisible but comprehensive. People are being transported in close cars public transport as cattle, private cars are more like a wheelchair with a screwed motor. The whole world "Brazil" extremely clumsy nature in it killed, there is not a single tree or flower, on which the eyes could would be a break from the oppressive community. We look at a huge grave, which you dug yourself yourself.

Sam, you not can do this terrorism?
But I have a lunch...

World "Brazil" will seem to you unreal, crazy, ridiculous. Insane domination of bureaucracy, the cult of pointless and useless information, a world in which officials endlessly go on and people (like the hero of De Niro in the final), drowning in endless paperwork, dissolve in them, die, caught in the blades are indestructible giant bureaucratic machine, and even when the dream the man freely floating in the clouds grow everywhere endless walls and grid.

This movie makes fun of situations that should invoke fear, because "Brazil" — is our world, examined through a magnifying glass — the world of the grotesque and because showing your imperfections and vices so clearly.

Stunningly paradoxical reality presented in strict dark scenery with great company of actors — that that waiting for you in "Brazil" and if you interesting to look at the reality under angle — enjoy.

A talented artist, comedian, animator and Director Terry Gilliam has a crazy fantasy and imagination. Unusual ideas it displays his work. Each of his painting is famous for its colorful, absurd humor and an original plot. But this film stands out in his career, but also considered one of the major works of the 1980s. And although the tape fell into the service the history of its rental and installation of shrouded in scandal between the Director and studios, it didn't stop her to gain a true cult status among the audience.

The picture is one of the most expressive of dystopia in the history of world cinema. The author paints a society constrained total bureaucracy, the most showing an example of sharp political satire. Taking over the classic works of the genre, such as "1984" George Orwell, "brave new world" Aldous Huxley "We" Yevgeny Zamyatin, Terry Gilliam together with the well-known playwright Tom Stoppard created the screen is a striking piece of dystopian genre. The authors paint a bleak world where the system controls all the way up to the smallest detail. Fear of authority makes people puppets, working in the interests of the regime. Society is dependent on the papers that the topic is always relevant.

The directing style and handwriting Terry Gilliam many wildly annoying. But I think this work, its stylistic research and more findings look very relevant. If you can show the struggle with the authoritarian regime with the unusual side, so it has attracted interest from a picky audience, then this daring cinematic experiment as the best suited for this purpose.

In visual terms, the creators have given plenty of their many fantasies. General depressive vibe resonates with a bright world of dreams the main character. This interweaving of dream and reality, allows you to add the plot of the fantasy motifs. One battle with a samurai worth. Colorful costumes, fanciful scenery and cartoon characters, it is appropriate to look at this unusual film. Virtuoso camera work Roger Pratt brilliantly conveys the contradictory mood of the tape.

Jonathan Pryce is a famous actor never were despite an enthusiastic rating for his work this film, to make a successful career for him and failed. Sorry for him as for his participation in the project Gilliam he has clearly demonstrated his dramatic talent. To unfortunately the huge potential of so not has been implemented. And the role turned out great. Robert De Niro appeared in a small but a very memorable and funny role plumbing partisan. It is an interesting character turned out. Kim Greist with its interesting appearance and complex screen character, looks good in the role of the dream girl of the protagonist.

Brazil is one of the most unusual dystopia presented in the world cinema. Tragicomic drama, combining as serious, and absurd motives. A significant event in the film world, in many respects determined the development of the genre. Important when it is understood that this brand artwork that is not suitable for all. But the fans must watch.
