The film "Cape fear," Martin Scorsese has really impressed me. Accidentally saw it started , I already do not able to break away from the viewing. With first seconds pumping music sets the tone throughout the film, the most plunged in his audience.

The plot is the story of a prisoner rapist max Cady (Robert De Niro), who spent in prison for 14 years the fault of his lawyer Sam Bowden (nick Nolte). After the release of kedI plans to take revenge on the lawyer and his entire family that we see the film. The plot is very unpredictable and the film holds the viewer in suspense up to the very end.

Don't tell about a brilliant game of actors. In the first place, it certainly Robert De Niro, who played your hero "villain felon". Max kedI — not only embittered, hard, and rolled criminal, but and a subtle psychologist, who knows weaknesses of people and eager to make his revenge more long drawn-out and tense. He lost yourself in jail turned into the spiritually developed personality, in contrast his lawyer, who are mired in everyday life. Frankly, the whole movie I was on side of kedI. Of course, I want to mention a game Juliette Lewis, who played 15-year-old daughter of a lawyer.

"Cape fear" — very high quality Thriller: interesting and unpredictable plot + good music + acting + the genius of the Director. It is the movie, which cuts into memory stays for a long time. He definitely worth it to spend on him 128 moments of my life.

At first wasn't interesting, reminded me of the film 62 years (although this is not a film-a remake of the, and another adaptation of the novel). But the last third of the film very pleased. Interesting conversations about the role of fear in human life, and about the impunity of intent to commit atrocity.

Good acting — De Niro and Juliette Lewis. For the appearance of Robert Mitchum, who played max Cady in the film, the original, here acted as a Prosecutor, once plus a few points. Especially unusual to see him in the beginning of the movie for with a lawyer. They say, and here he pursues the lawyer, even in film-remake. Such a strange irony that I saw for myself.

Music such that the whole movie even more, forcing the atmosphere of a Thriller. Even in the time of the parade disturbing notes covers the entire festive orchestra.

The operator worked wonders in water scenes. Very impressed with the rotation of the camera in a circle, when the boat in General have made the movement easier. The spray is also great.

I film 62 years liked more, but this film is also much higher than average. Perhaps if I watched it first, then would like do not exclude. In any case, almost all differences in the story made the film even better.

As a result: after the first third of the film wanted to put 3 then 6 and finally 8.

Even a small amount of a good fear — a modest little thing on the faceless General background. No, R. De Niro, of course, tried on glory. And appearance, mimic — impressive, no doubt. But... Get Used To It. And... Boring. Especially if you do not look for the first time. Although, I suppose, hardly someone even initially there were doubts as to what the story ends — everything is so trite.

Yes, once was demonstrated the weakness of the system. But why it was done? A statement of fact or call to change? Unclear.

Again our attention is offered a selection of colorful illustrations, combined (or if you prefer, which can be combined) under the common name (title): "What I was a fool!" Here you phenomenally stupid (sorry, no other word to choose) Secretary, received on my opinion, a great lesson on the rest of my life, and, most importantly, the daughter of the main character (the scene in theater class — do something). That in this is bad, you ask? Say, convincingly too! Only answer that all we have seen not once. Nothing new. Anything that remember a time and forever continue to be associated exclusively with this particular film and only him.

Dominance nonsense (and most mediocre) on the screen is just annoying, making it difficult to concentrate on main: the ideology of the hero of R. De Niro. Its motivation, objectives and etc. What is: only revenge or something more? Alas, nothing here. And in both directions: neither you clear position, which could not not to recognize or quality debunking such. No-th-th. Demagoguery — separately, actions — separately. Boring.

It is impossible to love a film just because it not bad (and I exactly and believe good — because too grotesque, implausible (one scene of the beating that is)) was played by a wonderful actor. And even pleasantly surprised me. D. lang (hardly not the most realistic character is presented, so to speak, on the appropriate level) he is in nothing is changing. The picture loses ideologically. Morality on the level of "we never forget this nightmare" I personally do not satisfied. It is not level. And maniacs now have no surprise. Well and then the meaning in this film?
