... And does it do not called.

In fact movie for Jarmusch a very personal and it's not that a similar story was with him in reality. Not at all. Just the eyes of bill Murray Jarmusch sees from Windows machine your world and he feels fiber of the soul of a famous actor.

The minor characters in the movie — like ordinary Americans, but not everyday at the same time. Have all the cockroaches in head and each reigns a huge void inside, and this vacuum is not the place of the hero Murray. Actually for his journey, no changes brings. So, just a distraction, bother "and suddenly do?!", or "how they are now doing, I wonder?"

In General, one-piece, though, and boring film, which is useful to look and interesting to discuss!

The film deserves your attention as soon as only be seen on the poster those who is the film crew.

Jim Jarmusch — has already become a cult Director. We must assume that many stars would honor to work with him, the appearance in a cameo role Moody Sharon stone, with which is not can cope strong the world of cinema.

The very manner of shooting, yeah and the script ending is very vague, pushes the film forward on the other. In principle, I am not would Will not take it so a film with this ending.

Well, of course the main character — bill Murray. Truly talented actor, a sad comedian. Charter to entertain us he moved to different genre, but I do not think forever. First there was "lost in translation", it is now "Broken flowers". A lot of the silent scenes, but they are not be filled with dialogues, they are so just over do not need supplements.

In my cinematic taste Jim Jarmusch is one of the most intriguing Directors of modern cinema. And not because it the movies are more questions than answers. All very simple. He he is the search. In finding yourself, your place in life and his mind is on the same questions asked by every little bit thinking person.

"Broken flowers" — the next a relaxed, leisurely story about the alone. Think so.

Not to say that for me, this film made a lasting impression. The same "Dead" somehow hooked and remained memory for a long time. In General, Jarmusch, who directed quite a few movies that stayed true to his style of narration. All very quiet and melancholic. I a movie like. It to sit in the restaurant or café and pretending to read the newspaper carefully to overhear the conversation at the next table. It seems to be no matter what there in them, who who looked askance at the office in the was wearing the boss's wife for the corporate or other Moore, but listen on other people's problems and distracted from their own. Remind: to eavesdrop, to spy and can't good.

And now for the debriefing.

The main role in the film played by bill Murray, who has already with a straight face, was pouring coffee in the unfinished "Coffee and cigarettes" and will play a role in the next project Jarmusch. With choice it is not mistaken, and hit the point. I to bill Murray are lots of love as to the actor and happy to watch films with his participation, but can not note that his last works like would it to say the least, monotonous. And don't get me wrong, he is a great comedic actor and capable more to recall the "And how's Bob?", perhaps one of his best roles in the genre. But his latest characters look very similar and Murray especially trying to change, but can it is required. He has found its new role in a serious film, although not without humor twist in the new quality looks more than decent. You can imagine that the aging actor from  the"difficulties of translation", on the leisure earn money doing computer business under the name don Johnston of "Broken flowers", and when his good mood he draws a red hat, growing a beard, took the name Steve zissou and goes to story of  the"Water of life". Like different stories, different Directors, and bill Murray is the same. But it is not cause rejection as some Chadov or Chadov, or how's call the domestic talents of the screen.

Male role of the second plan in the film played by Jeffrey Wright, who I remember game of the film "Shaft". In this case, Jarmusch applied the standard cinematic speed. In help calm doubting the main character, he gave active, confident in his humorous partner. Hero Jeffrey Wright — the neighbor of the main character, is working on three jobs, feeding five children, and in his spare time solves all riddles and is fond of detectives. According to he only friend Johnston, who sincerely tries to help to its rich neighbor to find not only his alleged son, but and its place in life.

The female role in not me impressed, for with the exception of the heroine Sharon stone and her "little" daughter Lolita. Oh, Sharon... it Was something in her eyes when she said goodbye to the Don, it boggles touching and alone she believe.

To watch or not to watch, of course up to you, but if you like "Dead" and"lost in translation" and you like quiet, slow movie, evoking thoughts about the fate of mankind and about my life, you advise. And I advise you to pour yourself a glass of Moet and Chandon (in the condition Bentley had already set in the garage) or Cabernet Sauvignon (in case of a Ford Focus under Windows), cut a few slices of cheese, put a movie in and 106 minutes forgotten about dishes.
