The plot is not disclosed nor a dialog is not considered acting, no, although the chance to assess no due to the General Anapanasati of the film. The feeling that a group of friends gathered in the evening under a beer sketched on the knee movie on 20 minutes, then decided to stretch illogical pauses, latency of the camera on training and decent same replica different words. The movie the graduate level of the first course, not stood nor the Green book nor with the Government or with a Favorite or even with a Star is born, it is unclear for what reasons it included in a nomination for the Oscar. The theme of the oppression of black people exaggerated the whole movie, but the facts are practically not see, the characters simply telling each other about their miserable share mnogomernogo times, it was much more likely looking to episodes. And then sit on the kitchen two black complain to each other:

- Me, brother, just released from prison, served two year hijack, but I did even drive not know, but I had a grass, and time for drug possession more than for stealing.

And where is the logic??? Have him "was just grass" — so the injustice and what discrimination? Or and the other sitting two adult black

- All white we have stolen, they steal all the time, I don't know one white, who would never was stolen. And what I also know how to Rob.

Shorter shown such a United black community, which lives together and happily until the evil white (stories of heroes) does not spoil the whole raspberries. It is clear that the story is, but here in this film everything looks like empty talk, and the oppression of black people in principle the injustice of a particular situation.

Based on the eponymous short story, 1974 by James Baldwin, the film has attracted the attention of an unexpected nominations on Oscar. Probably the main nomination, on which was the dream directed by Barry Jenkins — for best adapted screenplay, the film is not received. However, Regina king, black actress snatched the figurine from the Duo of "Mistress" with my opinion unfairly. This speaking softly.

The theme of Oscar and victories the categories of black representatives movie with every year, all is sharper. Before each new ceremony we remember the story with the victory of "Moonlight" and the preceding scandal with alleged discrimination against black actors, not fall in the final short-list for one of delivery. Not would make this, but it seems the academics are thus trying to smooth the conflict, because of which the ceremony with every year more like a farce.

Speaking of the movie, need to pay tribute to our exhibitors — story, as myself story very close to the Russian public. The film is not has reached no. in any rental, even a limited — avid fans looking for it on the Internet, and finding not get to my opinion, adequately meet.

More like the sitcom, the film does not show any of the birth of the Blues, no some other deep story. It just lying on the surface, the story of two young people living in different sides of the armored glass of the room for meetings, prisons of Tennessee. The dialogues do not develop quickly, so as a result, no what not developing. The scenes not related, it seems that inserted movie only because they were the story of James Baldwin, but on the screen they are not found a proper application. By the way, the author wrote it as Paris, a long time is not come in America, he, as a gay man, fought for the racial discrimination in America example of Martin Luther king. I was not able to read story, maybe he is much better than the movie. So usual.

One of the advantages will highlight the beautiful close-UPS of the main parties film — Tish and Fonni, masterfully captured by cameraman James Lactona. And also a cameo appearance in the frame a few minutes, Dave Franco, as a friend and Fonni mad COP EDA Screen. Perhaps all. The film is not leaves behind virtually no feelings, but it means only one thing — the film is not cut to the live. I hope You have more luck.

New York city early 1970-ies. Cute couple Tish and Alonso "Fonni" familiar with childhood, that's going to get married, the for this is a good reason — the girl is pregnant. This news native Tish take much more optimistic than the religious mother and sisters Fonni, but the main problem is waiting for lovers to come. Policeman a racist to arrest a guy, false charges of rape Puerto Rican Victoria, ignoring a lot of arguments in his defense. The only chance for the salvation of Fonni — go Puerto Rico speak with the victim, to find out why it is accused of the crime is his.

Novel of famous writer and fighter human rights James Baldwin, written in 1974, initially it seemed more than your current as of never, material for the Director Barry Jenkins, whose controversial for many "Moonlight" won the "Oscar" for the best film. The book of Baldwin, which he wrote in Europe, as America did not could be his own house, shrill and a ruthless syllable was charged to the United States as false and comfortless state, intolerant to people of other races and tried to convey that the animal hunted in the state, which the white man to feel in their skin is almost impossible. It is likely, that kind of honesty, courage and anger were motivated by the fact that the writer had nothing to lose and did he at a safe distance, but they said you have the courage and the strength to recreate the spirit Limonova along with message certainly not enough.

Although the script follows the book pretty neat events, directing the emphasis is too biased in a purely melodramatic way. What Jenkins good at it, so to tell what Tish from Fonni charming, beautiful and innocent — in the frame a lot of poetry, confessions of love and exploring the evening in new York under the perfect soundtrack. Here only Baldwin Tish is a litmus test, accurately absorbing and responds everything that happens around that convey fear, love, tenderness, anger, reflections on how to survive in the circumstances and to preserve human quality. Jenkins depicts Tish  & Fonni decorative, to cloying sweet and terribly one-dimensional pair, containing up to 80% of the action on the flashbacks and the scenes where these two lovebirds are kissing mashkautsan, reducing the drama of the characters to the eyes of Bambi and raised eyebrows — their function in the story limited.

Endless sentimentality, learn to well, quite stringy language, very quickly begins to tire, because of situations conversations want these revelations, the anger power, allows you to experience what it's like — to be a person of another race in America. But this topic Jenkins definitely gags, constantly simplifying the phrase, quenching violent conflict and smoothing the characters. It as if afraid to declare problems in the top of his voice, passing the state of a blacked-out frame, designed to create an oppressive atmosphere, and a pair of replicas in the spirit of "Dude, I saw terrible things, and they were so terrible that I was very scared". On this background, the game is Regina king, who plays the small role of dedicated mother Tish looks really bright, pushing the protagonists somewhere in the third plan. A key scene of the conversation with Victoria is the most lively episode, although the image of this woman came out faded, and the scene very much I do not enough. Trying to exaggerate in the final, Jenkins does not reach the desired effect, because at the seeming optimism of Baldwin, the writer clearly gave to understand that even if black opens one door, closes another always. But most importantly, this book really was important to film right now, since Baldwin already then clearly explained why racism continues to flourish riotous color and why a majority of ordinary African Americans in eyes are considered criminals. Jenkins also took darkly emasculated and cloying melodrama about how ugly racist COP Porush happiness nice and clean couple. As the difference.
