"DOWNTON ABBEY" — incredibly atmospheric classical drama, which takes place in England of the twentieth century. The picture is interesting and quite amusing. But, of course, the problem is not surprisingly, this side project...

As usual I will lay all the details and the points...

1. Script

As I already mentioned, the action of the plot develops in the ancestral estate of Downton in England somewhere in the late 20-ies of the twentieth century. With visit intends to be king of great Britain with wife. To the highest level, all as always fuss and worry. But someone started an attempt on the king... to be honest, about 20-25 minutes from power of very well. In we tell about the intrigues, the fights that take place in the limits of the Abbey. Reveal details of the lives of all those present in the estate. And all this happens irony and sarcasm.

The result is a very interesting and very funny story, and also plenty of living and honest. Even so, I say... In her visibly even the slightest faults. Just ideal development plot element from and before that can be said about the characters...

This film is making a huge mistake — he is counting on that will date and characters. What people coming in the movie already know the characteristics of the characters. So here they do not develop... practically nothing. Some are presented only in passing, and some just not develop. Personally, I can form opinions about two or three characters max, t to only so many more or less clearly spelled out. I realize this was calculation. The calculation of the fans of the series. But still have to make the usual audience at least a little delving into what is happening; pay attention to the background, to make flashbacks I. etc. 

In the result:

The plot was very entertaining, with an interesting concept and overall pretty fun. To the same and a touching finale. But here are the heroes of the picture in detail does not presented. Tape immediately jumps from place in careers. As soon she started, once you are presented a lot of different names, surnames and titles all rolled into some confusion. Well, that for a while. But still had to develop the characters more details for all, not to focus solely on the audience of the show.

2. Acting

I'm not going to dwell on this, t in all well played. I can only distinguish between those who made me a greater impression. Over, Hugh the Bonneville as always great. Can be here he plays a key role, but even so, able to stand out.

But most impressive to me was Maggie Smith. She is quite charismatic and sarcastic heroine Violet Crowley. Each frame with it — is amazing. In mostly, of course, funny and very funny, but sometimes pathetic.

Well... perhaps all.

But again — all play like you need this film. All laid it shows.

3. Atmosphere + Soundtrack

Just great! This one of the most atmospheric films of the year. It is one that can you imagine how personally, if you already are there. The family estate, butlers, courtiers, parades, receptions, evening dresses, suits — it is shown. Conveys the English aristocracy of the twentieth century. It is made me believe in this story. To the same entourage were still soundtrack. John Lunn worked enough tube and pleasant music, which without doubt fits this film.

And the result: this is almost not the best part of the project, so if not the best.


"DOWNTON ABBEY" — one of the best atmospheric bands of the year. A real gift for fans of the series. I even be said it's a perfectly crafted sequel. Perfectly written plot without the obvious problems and flaws, with irony and sarcastic humor. Atmospheric soundtrack and other actors also played their at the formation of the final opinion. But still, there is one huge problem... the Characters do not develop the words in any way. Casual viewers they are altogether unknown and incomprehensible. Who is why why — there is no explanation... at least the film. Still, almost all the characters do not changed the timing for the exception was a pair.

Fans of the series have looking forward to the premiere, so no sense to say that they should look. The rest I advise you to think about, but note that as the film if he is very good. And more you probably not disappoint.

I love this series. Love and admired — actors, costumes, scenery, Highclere castle and its interiors, plot, drama. Music!

That brought us to the feature film?

Of course, the opportunity to return to the walls of the Abbey, and learn how case so loved Crawley.

The plot is based on the visit of the king of great Britain and his wife in Downton. Not going to retell the story, better to tell what new.

Voice. Me inside out don't have turned out, when my favorite characters talking other people, different voices. Physically cringe from senile samkange Mrs. Patmore and the Dowager Countess, from the icy distant voices Mary. For do and not used. Dubbing actors channel Home handled it much better.

To change the tone of the narrative. If the series — it's a historical drama, rich in authenticity and laced with a little humor, then the feature-length film was there. Yes, movie series have different laws. But subtle English humor has become a gross parody of himself. Take scene priplyasyvaniya Molesley in the shop. He was eccentric, but had a sense of self-esteem. Not need outright clowning.

Speaking of the strange behavior of the characters.

Why the actors are almost other characters? That began with Thomas barrow? Where the handsome man with good posture and a smug grin? Why he is ridiculous jerks, rude count Grantom and Mary's, not calculates the moves? It is not like that Thomas, whom I know. Questions will remain without response.

Other pain — the honourable violet and Isobel transformed in elderly friends and gossip. You didn't irritate it rural "poking"?

Tom. I refuse to believe Tom Branson could my mouth to say something resembling "Yes, they are stupid and arrogant" in the address family. Put this gem on the shelf "misunderstandings".

Mr. Carson is charming in these carrots on your garden. And how about a tremor in the hands, which he left the post. Just forget? OK.

Stop Peschici trivia, go to the community.

The plot is not very interesting. Have several of the characters personal conflict, which they quickly overcome.

Mini-stories are. Well, you still nice to fans.

The first half suffers from an atypical shooting hands, which is just annoying. But in General, the picture as always the highest level. Here you train field all the beauty of the castle. About the costumes, the imagery, the atmosphere — silent. Otherwise not waiting, because it is a business card series. Tale!

As an independent film — probably not. The series gives the viewer to enjoy the English stiffness, the same movie — the page itself makes fun of black stairs.

Well, tutorial "How to host the king and stay alive in your right mind". Anyone that closer.

I have long doubted to go or none movie. Uncomfortable sessions, not too nice feedback. The impression that nothing I don't miss it if wait quality and will watch a movie on the couch under a blanket. But then I realized that I will be sorry if you miss the opportunity to see your favorite heroes on the big screen.

I have watched the series several times. The first three season — so do not count can. And this film is filmed for me like me. Those who have not seen anything in the series it is not understand not rated. The Director does not aims to introduce the characters situation in a whole. So you liked the movie you need to know the inhabitants of the Abbey and love them. the Only way.

For me, this was a two-hour euphoria. Grandma Crowley and Isabel was in charge of humor the movie, finally gave in earrings all heroes who don't got happiness in your TV series. The poor molesley with a clever look came into an absurd situation, Mr. Carson always knew how much silver cleaned will need to lunch and the ingenious Mr. Bates had ready a plan rid noise and put the servants of Downton in the most favorable light.

The owners of the estates also hold a high reputation. Mary takes on all trouble preparation for the highest visit, the newly minted Marchioness Edith as always find about than to suffer even on the fashionable ball, That it fits not only a circle of the family, but even among princes and kings. Grandma is plotting another affair, and Isabel is trying to hold her warlike ardor.

And all in the atmosphere of balls, receptions, outfits, gourmet snacks and everything for six seasons, was famous for the series "the Abbey Downton".

Overall, it is really more like a Christmas special than a feature film. But meet old friends so great. I got two hours of fun.

This, of course, not a dozen. But for a sense of nostalgia and past achievements...
