I would like to warn, if You have not read this work of Boris Viana previously familiar with creativity of Michel Gondry, it is better go for different movie. Yesterday from cinema the middle of the movie there were two girls, sitting to the right of me. In General, many of the audience left in bewilderment: "What happened? What I just now looked?"

I came from hall a very strange feeling which was not previously experienced. In the first place, it was euphoria. Finally filmed my favorite novel, and my favorite Director! And I waited and enjoyed this moment. I like zavorozhennaya watched "the Foam of days", the first time I didn't want perceptivity in movie friend.

Second, my brain soaked Gondry embodied in life ideas Viana. After I thought that now any object will grow legs and he runs away, what tap appears acne and etc. 

Michel Gondry has done a fine job with directing, it show all because I was unveiled, reading "the Foam of days".

But of course, there is one on my opinion a serious drawback. It is the main characters. In the novel, Knee-length — young blond with a baby's smile. Dyuris, unfortunately it's not young and not blonde. Chloe is also a young girl with scarlet lips and dark brown hair. No, I love Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris. They just do not quite fit. I understand, Gondry gained in its a picture of some of the most famous and popular young actors of France. Who were pleased of the actors, is Omar si. With the role of Nicolas, he has done.

But not looking at this is the movie I loved it. I pleasure the seconds spent in the room. Vian and Gondry — genius.

This picture sent me on an unexpected reflections. About eternal, end, too. Why unexpected? Yes all because of the annotations. Deceived fool, again. Yeah and the book fool not read... In the first half of the film I quite smiling, thought: "the Perfect end to my day!". After over, I with glass eyes out of theater, thinking about the death. Well so, my narodoslawsky melancholy. And now just the film.

The filing of this painting — it's an artistic mess, a creative storm, a kind of nonsense. In General, Arthouse, according to my opinion. Accordingly, this category is not will be like (with me in the room were a few couples, half dropped out in 40 minutes after the start). Next, on the story idea — the decay and decomposition of life, and a little bit of happiness in her. Sad, funny, and more... sad. The visual side — great! Music — great! Actors — great! Well, it is in a nutshell.

And in General, what do I think about "the Foam of days", the greener becomes my review. First, on the emotions the sensation was neutral, too incomprehensible, strange, sad. But starting to analyze, to remember, realize what a wonderful figurative way, we introduced. How many colorful allusions and metaphors in this little cardboard-plastic-metal foil world fit. Literally every frame radiates caustic, satirical epithets. And it's really cool! I 'm glad so ended the day!

Still no one book not gave me an ardent desire to see her adaptation. But apparently, the feeling arose only I once for half a century the French writer-garde was honored to be translated into the language of film only three times. In 2013, a last attempt was made by the compatriot Boris Viana Michelle Godri. Imagine someone else, who could hold the role quite difficult. For only such unusual in their perception, non-partner Bjork, Godri would be able to convey the atmosphere of the same incredible commonplace book "Foam of days".

Story to the horror is simple and not intricate. A young man, Colin (Romain Dyuris) falls in love with the girl dreams Chloe (Audrey Tautou), they here with your friends (Omar Sy, Gad Elmaleh and other) days and night, while Chloe not is seized by the disease in the form of nymphs, water lilies that prorostaet have her breast. Such vivid detail the author gave the symptoms and signs of tuberculosis. So gradually, the Comedy spills over into the tragedy, although not particularly sympathetic to the fate of the protagonists. Surely this is related that 20-year-old youth represent 40-year-old ladies ' man and eternal "Ameripure". But is this story do not the plot twists and the bends, and the style of the metaphorical world in which the characters inhabit. Colin awakening first thing in the order to cut the eyelids. And what? Well, ever mows people. In the world of "Foam" is fine.

To compare the two works, it is the authorship of Viana and Godri not is so as the Director tried to maintain the maximum accuracy of the details, but sometimes gag pasted, but time and place. And that is if you consider two previous adaptation, then there is already pay attention to a big difference between them. In 1968, French "Foam" by Charles Belmont came out devoid of all excess of a surreal world, told Boris vian. And in 2001, from the original remained only the cross-cutting thematic line, so as a Japanese author Go Riju decided to bring in its "Chloe" elements of ethnic culture.

So until on the background of their predecessors Godri wins with a large margin in points for that used creativity and let exaggerated, artificial special effects, but they gave the painting that the necessary juiciness that are so important when the perception of something else. Watching the film, there is a feeling that you're a hero hunter S. Thompson: here are you going to the red convertible, washed down with a couple of ecstasy pills ether and the world is beginning to surprise you on every step. And in the trunk a suitcase full of the kind of "good".

But if atmosphere an exposure of style, all happened not successfully, meaning — at the very least. The essence of the story was lost for all sham sets: for long legs dancing "thing" for flights the clouds, in penacostal and police leather jumpsuits. The first hour movie captures, takes for him in this unreality, and you open mouth, as a small child, all struggling to touch. But it ("something") becomes further and further from you have not reach. The meaning slips away and is lost. To unfortunately, to create some more or less coherent picture to watch this film without the preliminary reading of the source is not necessary.

And so well as the bright colors in the beginning of the tape losing its intensity to the end, go out and rotten characters heroes. Decorative performances completely overshadow any attempts of the actors to get your character to the surface of this bubbling and foamy grotesque Gigi. And Godri knew that happen. That is why he is invited to the composition of stars of the first magnitude in France who would be able without but to leave because of his previously established reputation.

Perhaps for those who haven't know of the creativity of these two authors, Michel Godri in particular (do not take into account collapsed "the Green hornet"), this film seems too artsy and avant-garde. All because in the already have clear boundaries history the Director has made an excess art hauskasti. But if you want to forget your serious realities and visit for a while in a futuristic plane, it "welcome, please".
