In recent years, we saw a lot of movies that directly or indirectly touch on the subject of racism. Most films of this direction is rather monotonous. The plot is as follows: unlike oppressed, but sometimes it shows the world that worthy of the world accepts it. Picture, which will be discussed today stood out among the similar.

The "green book" directed by Peter Farrelly tells the audience the story of two friends: don Shirley (was Maharshal Ali) and his driver Tony Vallelonga on the nickname "Chatterbox" (Viggo Mortensen). This story is based on real events. Events occurred in USA 1962. Famous pianist don Shirley hires a driver, so that he was accompanied by his tour the southern States. With a Tony Villiage issued "Green book" — this guide which indicated a safe place for African American travelers who decided to visit the South countries.

The main characters don't quite similar other. Don Shirley — the great pianist, African American, living in wealth and luxury. Tony — a simple bouncer of Italian-American origin in a nightclub, living in a normal house with a large family, wife and two children. Despite such differences in the characters long journey has United them.

In my opinion, the theme of racism in this picture can be called a key. For us we are used to racism is manifested only to black people, but in root so. The Director was able to show that to harass and humiliate every. Stereotypes have every country, every nation and we have stopped to notice how we use them in our daily lives. And heroes of the "Green book" were able to experience it on yourself. They in the country, but at the same time feel strange.? It mean I wasn't black enough, and white enough. Tell me, Tony, who I am?!? — exclaims don, Shirley.

The "green book" is perfect for young and older viewers. This wonderful intelligent Comedy that will lift you mood and make you smile in a cold winter day.

Have a good day nice view.

Director Peter Farrelly shows in the world first — this is Dr. Shirley, rich, talented and well educated musician. Second — this is Tony "Chatterbox", a simple bouncer of the restaurant, driver very good "eater" of hot dogs. This two completely different worlds. And between them the thin line of racism, which is relevant in the 21st century.

But changing, when these worlds begin to converge. Both character start to change, look at the world the other side. Tony "Chatterbox" — a simple person who enjoys and gets a thrill from even that just picked up a stone that fell from the counter of the small shop. What he needs, except of course, the money that he will receive the trip? He learning good manners, is formed and begins to write letters. But it — he begins to look differently on people outside depends on what color human skin. It is not in appearance, we understand what people in reality, the inner peace.

It would seem that can change in such a rich and successful man as Dr. Shirley? Have him a colorful life, which seems on first glance. It is a lonely man, have no family and no simple human happiness, contrast Tony. But at the same time — this is a very strong and brave person who specifically goes to tour the Southern States, where people are not much like it — person with a different skin color. And, of course, Tony was inspired by this brave man who tried to change people.

In the end, both have not got just what they wanted initially, and something more — the friendship of two completely different people and a simple human happiness. And happiness of the common man in the things, from a simple eating chicken wings and ending with jazz in the usual bar game piano.

Hats off to Director Peter Farrelly for a beautiful film about human friendship and, of course, in the film. Listening to her, you are completely immersed in the era of 60-ies of America.

The green book definitely has a chance to get an Oscar for "Best screenplay" and"Best editing". Vigo Mortensen — a great actor, whom I knew the great role of Aragorn in the Lord of the rings. But after almost 20 years, it be that having nominated for an Oscar for the best actor.

Ali was maherali — here and words need is and a talented actor, which the Oscar for the best male role is quite likely to the Oscar for the best male role of the second plan.

I recommend to view this film without all the exception. Now to unfortunately, very little.

Greet the sixties and the South with Don Shirley and Tony Vallelonga in this wonderful adventure.

"The green book" might be another road movie on real events, which might not happen. But here all differently.

Before us is sharp and modern male movie about true friendship, pervasive racism and class inequality.

The "green book" — it's almost like "1+1" with a change of a ratio of skin color and situation in society characters.

Ali was maherali shows us aristocratic and fastidious pianist who really wants to there can be less hypocrisy and the plastic smiles in the face of black talent.

And Viggo Mortensen in film — this is a simple and honest man of the Bronx, successfully found work after closed favorite nightclub, where he was a bouncer. The journey these characters are quite ambitious, funny and incredibly interesting.

A "Green book" specifies the path to the racist minefield under the name of the South U.S. 60.

Look at the contrast of subtlety and simplicity are always fun, fact that the the screen is going so elusive in many modern works, but required in on-screen duets a thing as the chemistry between the actors.

I can really see how between the two, at first, not very bronikowski each other people, there is sympathy. Yes, it is the plot of any road movie. But here you will see the real story, full of incidents, interesting situations and southern flavour.
