This is one of the most of those nedoocenili movies on IMDb, which for some reason is not found a place even in Top 250. I admit, I'm surprised.

This movie is about the near future. Fictional future, which is based not some scientific or technical achievement, and aggravated problems of our time. The film is the truth. It is not Hollywood, where in many of these films every frame trying to make the most spectacular and breathtaking, making it loses its naturalness and acquires movie are fake.

The whole film breathes with reality. All natural really. The world on the other side of the screen is not embellished or blackened, it is not shown through the prism of an idea, someone's opinion, views on reality. For based on the problems of humanity, the "Golden billion" and the"third world". It is not another horror story about the sudden, appearing from nowhere the end of the world. This film is like the call of modern civilization: "People look at who do you have become!" Infertility — it is an allegory, a collective sense of our problems, meaning imminent death.

"This world is gone mad" — such a slogan would fit perfectly to the film. Women are screaming hysterically about the absurd gender equity, which in principle violates the harmony of the society. All stronger drawn into proizvodstvennoy, politics, our lovely ladies forget about that needs to raise a replacement. One child family — not output. Of course, all sorts of life situations happen, but afraid of what this phenomenon is massively. I no want to insult, it the problem of our time. In this way the number will decrease in geometrical progression. Infertility — this pollution. Infertility — that all the large-scale migration processes. Infertility — that the confusion in the minds of people wanting to live all the time better (after all, they are already living well, in fact). Here a simple example: the riots in Greece. Why are people living on manual the unemployment component 700 Euro month, out on the street to break Windows and flip cars? These miserable people are restricted to their personal problems.

All raelno: terrorist organizations, injustice over migrant stabbed to the death of 18-year-old boy, the clutter of cities and nature. Yes, all and will. In the worst case. It is not pessimism, but a reality.

Yes, in the world there are a lot of good, what you do not was before. But problem can not disappear.

Now, about the technical side of the film. All was fulfilled on the highest level. There are no pathetic special effects, but but what a camera work! What is a six-minute scene of the siege of the rebels. Just gorgeous, no words! Watching events and so real hear the bustling noise decaying cities, shootings, bullets whizzing by his head when the walls shake from the explosions when the earth trembles under a mass of iron technology, from the indignation of the people, the breath of the crowd, overwhelmed by the atrocity. All this is feel, feel, and not just see. A riot of people who have nothing to lose, why we see the fierce faces of the desperate, ready without the shade of mercy to bite into you the neck when you sitting in the cabin of the car dead, like in a tin can, vzhavshis in a chair soaked with sweat, or run around you crazy, where are almost hope to rescue. Here is — the digital part. More and not necessary. It turned out just perfectly.

A rare film focusing on actual problems. It is not "the day after tomorrow" where the Sochi in pursuit of beauty and the drive came up with impossible things. It is not "equilibrium", where the question was raised, does not associated with a reality. "The child human" — here is the reality!

The film is not have quite a bit. A bit of sensuality to scream.

This movie deserves a place at least in the first hundred Top list on IMDb, it I entire confidence declare. What well, any idea how my own, subjectively.

Another reflection on the theme of dystopian future on our planet, brought to catharsis, in deathbed delirium destroying humanity. Another talented Director — Alfonso cuarón, the brilliant composition here and Clive Owen and Julianne Moore and the incomparable Michael Caine in a new role.

videos primarily to the fact that considering the tiny cut in a few weeks past the average person 27 years of the twenty-first century. He sees the world is wallowing in the darkness every day the community loses the remnants of his humanity, instead of uniting in the face of common danger and the threat of extinction, the country turned against each other, fueling the racial war and living the principle of "man — the wolf." By the way, the very cause of zero population growth movie and explained, although guess not difficult.

So or otherwise, the way our hero runs through the quiet and calm, although there is the same as the troubled and the world around the streets of the metropolis, it leaves the city, and the landscape alternate with the beauty of nature, on first glance does not marred, the green shines through the glass and always wet in the British climate the asphalt glitters nice soft blue-gray color. He can travel through refugee camps and persecuted by the new laws, immigrants, finds friends and enemies in every home that give him a shelter. But all the way he share with young girl, black and good, although at times rather rustic and bold, in whose hands, or rather in the womb lies the mystery, or at least a chance to saving it peace and all human kind.

Gangs, groups, troops and mercenaries slip as background picture of the travels of this couple. The original scenes with animals, of which there are many, good that they emit some coziness is in these frames with their presence. And finally, the climax, the triumph of unarmed innocence over dehumanizing rage.

Totals is simple, although the picture conceals many mysteries. This is a thoughtful and a sad movie, sometimes very heavy, which it is advisable to look formed a certain attitude to the content of the word humanity... In it all, painting is a hymn, or maybe a Requiem to the concept of humanity.

The society died. Nominally, it still exists, but end not distant: no children, hope. Most people shared on the various factions and gladly destroy each other. For other humane state invented ampoules for euthanasia, their aggressive advertising promises easy and pleasant death. Yeah and particularly seek somewhere nowhere.. Unemployment and chaos reign in this world. Thousands of refugees systematically destroyed, only what I dared to wish for a better life. And on the background of what is happening the entire world is mourning the death of one person — who was born last...

Here's response the question is, why humanity is not able to have children — because it is not dignity. Why is it (humanity) must, if human life is nothing worth?? Where are touched by the baby and through the second allowed the machine gun fire in the defenseless people? So it's society is doomed, as all those in the past, mired in defects forgotten of morality and humanity.

This is a film-warning that is waiting for us, if we will continue the same game: the war, aggressive against other people will contaminate all around their garbage, and your body plastic food. In this case, it can be with us.. Although we know that any dystopia we will not be intimidated, all would like goes.

But the film look interesting, despite what he is too "American": with a hero, a liberator with a square jaw and sad story past ; with limit bucket of bullets on a minute narration and a mountain of corpses in every frame. Oh, and happy end end.
