Not often, I have a desire to write a review for many thanks to the moderators of the resource to stop at me this desire.

But, by this film, I couldn't pass in silence. It seems the translators of the rent in Russia used in our time to and do not burden themselves with at least a superficial viewing of the film to understand why the bear "infinite" and"polar", and all white.

Well, Yes okay! I look to the long Ruffalo — his first (and only) directorial debut, "Sympathy for Delicious" (by the way, also Hello translators perevodchik it as "Compassion for beautiful") struck me, I did not expect from him to this movie!

After watching this "quiet masterpiece" the interest in him as to the actor I'm a little subsided, was more like to see him directorial works. The film is about the father of the family suffering from mental illness returned to my interest Ruffalo-actor! To this film I thought acting best way to transfer the personality of a mentally ill person — Dustin Hoffman "rain Man".

When I look at Ruffalo not voluntarily Recalling Hoffman, although the characters are quite different, but what unites them is one — the genius of the game! There are so many examples of failed attempts of actors of different kinds log-in the image of a crazy person.

The main point to which pay attention — is that the actor is overacting, people suffering from such disorders... they are more normal, natural than they are trying to present to screen.

Ruffalo — this is the "very clever" look and believe he's crazy! He is very normal and natural your way! Neither a single false facial wrinkles on the face or a single superfluous gesture! Bravo, mark!

A writer's job is also worthy of attention, Maya Forbes testing in a role of the Director in the first time took no chances and scored a lot of trump cards in sleeves, it as a proven winning scenario lines — children, family, interracial marriage, difficult financial situation, so and great humor, irony, kindness and sincerity.

Very accurately convey the spirit of time 70-ies of the United States, all parts fit filigree. The moment that the woman must be the Director besides the writer so much attention in the film pays the car — accurate finding for to emphasize the masculine nature of the protagonist personally, I'm pleasantly captivating.

In the end, a brilliant film and certainly the best role of Mark Ruffalo!

P. S. All write on that the film piece, brilliant, wonderful, but ten't put Here... you Ruffalo the top ten!

Imagine that once you Wake up and realize  — special man to resolve any task. Suddenly in your head there are dozens of ambitious plans, and an endless stream of ideas that revolves in your brain may stop unless the physical death. You be incredibly creative, active and talkative, and all backed up by an insane feeling of euphoria and energy, which would be enough for ten. You can't sleep practically need of — your body and mind are now able to all. But it takes some time, and puts the opposite state of deep depression, in which even the preparation of a simple Breakfast becomes for you an impossible task, and your mind is still recently gave the greatest idea, now not able to understand even a children's book with pictures. Such is the reality of people suffering bipolar disorder — the main characteristics of this disease are mood swings from euphoria to depression that put the human psyche incredible stress. Producer and screenwriter Maya Forbes was familiar with bipolar disorder hearsay because they suffered her father. After some thought, Forbes came to the conclusion that in his debut in as the Director wants to tell you about a troubled childhood with mad father. So was born the movie "Infinitely polar bear", a story about a mentally sick man who does not can even take care of myself, but forced to look after two young daughters.

In the late seventies and early eighties, where the events of the film, bipolar disorder else it was called "manic-depressive" and was little studied even by professionals, not mention of the awareness of ordinary citizens. In this difficult time the main character tries to learn to coexist with peace and a and his story is told not in medical terms, a simple human language that is understandable even to those who thinks mental illness is the invention of the spoiled West. Maya Forbes not is the first Director who chose to story of mental illness approach, in which the Comedy takes precedence over the drama. It just recently made Director David Owen Russell in his film "My boy — crazy", whose protagonist also suffered from bipolar disorder. But despite that the approach Forbes is not completely exclusive, he still seems fresh. The comic elements help to take a new look at the suffering of the mentally ill and their relatives, and also able to reach the viewer is better than the film, where the main character would have talked about the side effects of lithium sitting in a depressing room at the psychiatric hospital. What the Director has left the main character alone with children, leads to a curious thought, is and tragic and comic at the same time — any person suffering from serious problems with mentality, reminds forever lost child who needs a helping hand in everyday life.

However, despite all Comedy is some of bipolar disorder, you need to remember that is a serious disease, often becoming fatal, therefore, to Maya Forbes it was very important to find the right balance between Comedy and tragedy. It picture is easy, but not afraid sometimes to be serious and tries to reveal for you a world unfamiliar to the ordinary person. In this talented and intelligent man with good education and from decent families do not able to resist, even in the simplest work. And once he can decide to rush in lake. Here just no no reason. And even the greatest amount of love can not enough to maintain relations with the person that on the verge of madness, then on the verge of utter stupefaction of the senses and emotions. In the end, Maya Forbes drew is quite adorable, but a sad portrait of a family faced with an incurable disease, with which you can only learn to live.

Another film from "globe marathon".

the Plot.

The film tells the story of the hero of Cameron, who after the break with the family tries to restore the relationship. All would any Cameron — sick. From his manic-depressive psychosis or simply put mood swings, drastic changes in the behavior so on. His wife Maggie is trying to support two daughters while he is from  nothing to serious "treatment." In the end, it comes to that Maggie need to finish my studies in another city, and she decides to leave the kids with dad.

About the film.

The film is dramatic. It shows human life in a state of disease, which with side nothing serious not shown. However, this is also able to demolish a family. But for me, the film turned out to be quite ironic. Cameron's relationship with their children resemble more the relationship between peers. He just have to teach the parent the "basics" with the beginning, yelling and bickering with children. I laughed. In the first place, he says that each family has its own "psychosis".

The protagonist reflects how should not behave father. At the time of watching this film well begin to understand why sometimes kids are embarrassed by their parents... But they love them, but trying to go home with his friends and they are not particularly to hallow.

In this case, we see that that the children look smarter and more Mature than his father and understand more than their father. Maybe this is due to the fact that they interact more with the world of normal people, and maybe something else.


mark Ruffalo was pleasantly surprised. He played a really bright character, which not even the need to explain some details of the past. Image full and memorable.

Zoe Saldana played his wife — the actress has always been the role of strong and independent women, so it's just nice to see her sometimes not superheroine militants, and in the role of an ordinary housewife.

Overall it was a good movie, so I recommend to view and put
