If you think about it, the task of any science-fiction — using a metaphorical expression to pay attention to modern problems of society. So, with the release of the iconic "X-Men" in screens the TV was released a huge number of films and TV series about people with superhuman abilities who are forced to hide from ordinary people, because don't willing to accept them as they is that is clearly a reference to the problem of discrimination against minorities. One of the last works of this format became a sci-Fi Thriller "the Others".

synopsis Little girl Chloe lives with Pope the old house in the one of the suburbs of Los Angeles. On first glance, they would seem like a normal family, but their home is entirely boarded up, the Windows covered with duct tape, and from the Pope always on the lookout for a loaded gun. Chloe wants to get out of the house to play with other children in the Park and, most importantly, to get ice cream from the nearest ice cream truck. But the Pope strictly forbade her to do so, explaining to her that in this world she was in mortal danger. But one day a girl violates the prohibition of...

acting Despite that one of the actors involved in the film, it is possible to allocate, perhaps, only Emile Hirsch and Bruce Dern, in General, the acting made a positive impression. Hirsch played the role of a young father, is ready to go almost any action, even completely restrict his daughter from the outside world, if only not to allow even the slightest danger of her life. Bruce Dern in the unexpected role was grandfather of Chloe, which the fact is the antithesis of the father and Vice versa, trying to urge the girl not hide declare your existence, not stint and power. Well and finally, it is possible to allocate lexi Kolker in the role of Chloe, who is just beginning to learn about the world, even without realizing your place in it.

Directing a Joint project of Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein became a real hit on the last year's film festival in Toronto the reason the presentation of the material. A film on the fact was a mixture of "Cloverfield, 10" and TV series "Heroes" with an admixture of narrative techniques in the style of Christopher Nolan. There are no epic chase or a marvel of pathos. All events we see the point of view of the protagonist, whose the vision of the world confined to the old dilapidated house and his father's stories about the horrors that happen behind the walls. Of course my curiosity takes over and the girl goes out. Initially innocent encounter with a perfectly normal world suddenly turns into the struggle for bottom, where the characters are forced to use their extraordinary abilities to prevent a catastrophe. And it is unusual demonstration of these abilities ensure the success of the film.

Script in addition to directing the filing of the success of the film was due to its plot. The film almost entirely takes place in an old deserted house in the suburbs of Los Angeles where there are 7-year-old Chloe with his father. She never left at home, she is the world restricts the stories of the father, the desire to become a mother and buy ice cream from the owner of the van, which she secretly watches from the Windows of the house. In same time, Chloe begins to notice for the ability to manage people when she first neighbor forces girl to bring her ice cream, a policeman to put the gun down, and dad to sleep on blue. It soon becomes clear that Chloe her dad are different or"abnormal" people with supernormal abilities, and that some are out of law to be total destruction. Of course, such a policy of the government met stiff resistance from the other, headed by the girl's mother, caught in the time in captivity. And now Chloe found out about all this, to save the mother and to continue the struggle for right to their existence.

Summary "Other" — of course, the movie is very unusual. But it  - triviality has led to an increased interest and subsequent success of the film. Then we have seen before, here filed under a completely different perspective, allowing the interest intensifies, and the desire to learn what all over, increases. Therefore, connoisseurs of really smart science fiction this film is recommended to viewing.

Like that its basis is unlikely to have seen other horizons rather than getting into the TV releases, turned out quite acceptable sight, let and deprived honed commercial sheen, fans of science fiction can find a lot of details that do not exist in wide rentals.

Father and daughter sit at yourself the house, often mentioning in the context of the dialogues about their differences from others, but the main subject is revealed gradually with the development of the story that sijiwae viewers have screen as minimum of the next plot turn. After some time of "closed" in four walls the history of the gradually emerging over the outside the home, and extends outside the range of interaction of the main characters with other actors.

Over time, "Other" develop into action-Packed fiction of superhuman abilities, and let this theme already has repeatedly been raised in other independent projects, this film leaves a positive impression integrity throughout history and no sagging. Ideas of creativity there are plenty, not going to mention the details, but the authors it is quite acceptable the embodiment given in output a good result, which for a half hour of screen time not have become a minute is boring to watch.

Of course, you can pick the level of work of artists and professionals interesting, but do not forget the names of the Directors who at the great fishing in his career was so if you fan fiction, then this movie is not have to deliver frustration, when condition your expectations the film will be quite fair and reasonable.

Me at this movie is not was all soul. Some of the moves seemed excessive, somewhere sweet, somewhere not a measure of pathos. However, the overall impression of the film at least were very positive.

Is in the United States still able to create paintings not focusing on technology. I'm surprised the elaboration of certain scenes. It's about being a fantastic Thriller, and the super-technological solutions were shot in the interiors of a house and more than on a modest budget. Then how hard the creators stretched the reality, combining the narratives with the technical capacity is respected. It turns out that a careful study of does not require massive special effects — the psychological content and meaning. With this set can be safely taken even for topics such as "X-Men".

I must say also a few words about the film. This is really a unique mix, made up of  the"X-Men" and"Firestarter". There a girl with psychic powers, fragmented family and aggressive external environment. It will provide a sweet for the America the topic of family unity in a positive light.

However, in the band can be seen many strange things. So hysterical child look at least strange. In relations with the father she overly aggressive, it seems that the creators have some difficulty in dealing with children. The child's behavior is presented as something spontaneous, dangerous, not amenable to reasonable control...

And claim to be heroes of the people to really build their line exclusively by using violence. Yes, they had to defend themselves, but how aggressive their work on against the people who are completely loyal. Like the sharp the tape Freaks (Freaks — lane English). in fully justified. It turns out that in this bleak dystopia not bad good. There's bad and bad. And this deserves a separate analysis. Exactly such a big-budget superhero Saga isn't seen.

But these are controversial points and raise the boiling point, are of interest to the film
