This is the third full-fledged film Director originally from Denmark Joachim Trier. It the next picture was a deep drama, filmed in cold, but a warm atmosphere. The film is shot in an interesting and unusual style that has been adopted by the Director. Trier immerses the viewer in a painful, human story full of one great tragedy that fell on all members of the same family.

We see three men of the family: father and two sons. They lost the woman: mother and wife. She was an interesting person, doing images of war reporting. Her son was asked to find interesting with her personal photos, and this event father and two sons together. Before us the life story of three men, as everyone deals with grief and the pain of loss. Suddenly the youngest son turns out a shocking secret about her mother's death...

I remember this movie for several reasons. First, the directing is good. Joachim Trier takes a deep, psychological drama and knows what he wants. The viewer is in for a painful history and drama of the lives of ordinary people. Particularly impressed by the story of the younger son. Film Director shows clear, plausible, in to close to real-life, something real. Second, as I have said cold atmosphere and the style of the painting pleased. Movie looked in some kind of abstraction, in a hypnotic state. It was fun.

Thirdly, the acting is pleasing to the eye. The male roles were played by Gabriel Byrne, Jesse Eisenberg and Devin Druid. Great, so profound was the acting. The main role of the hero of the entire history of the mysterious mother the photographer went to French actress Isabelle Huppert. That touches it, then it was the heart of this film, and all scenes with her are especially sensitive and will captivate the viewer's attention.

Some of the highlights of this film was unexpected, violent, overwhelming emotions. And again, this was this idea of the Director that the movie tore the viewer from the inside and left a trail. This film is deeper than it seems on first glance. Story of not only the loss of a loved one, all deeper larger than think.

"Louder than bombs" — cool, family drama from Trier, 2015. This film will be interesting to fans of this genre, a connoisseur of European cinema and to fans of the inimitable Isabelle Huppert. The movie was honored a nomination for the Palme d'or that emphasizes its value. Personally, I this film is appreciated and treat it positively. Thank you!

In the framework of the Cannes film festival 2015 participation in the struggle for the main prize has received a film "Louder than bombs", directed by Joachim Trier. The film tells about the life of a family after the death of his mother. She was engaged in military photography. Died in a car accident. From each family member has their own vision of this tragedy, but they are covered by a General haze of confusion, sorrow and pain.

From the first minutes of the film noticeable the excellent work on the scenario, the hand to which made myself Director. The dialogue is very subtly and unobtrusively introduce the viewer into the story, labeling the protagonists. Despite that Isabel is a character around which the action unfolds, it appears only in flashbacks and it is not so much screen time.

With her we learn through the memories of loved ones, family, with the diaries, gradually folding in the head of the part of the story of brave women who dedicated their lives to art and humanity. Make the viewer close to the secret to the secret of the death of Isabel.

If you think of the film schematically, we can draw two parallel arrows. One of them — present, which the story unfolds. Here and adolescent torments of the younger son, and family issues elder, and attempts of the father to have an affair after the incident. Second hand — this is the story of Isabel. Her thoughts about family, work, goals in life and, most importantly, the right choice.

As an outline of the movie is duality, so and the main character is not could the lifetime to ask yourself one direction vector. Family and work often co-exist in a man in this woman is not found reconciliation. Isabel has set a high bar and there there. She used to achieve the best result. In family life her one man, and at working — the other. And they never violate the boundaries of their "universes".

And it is not history of the two hares. It on the correct choice, which is not exist. Taking one thing we think true to the opposite option. And in the context of this question the cause of death, Isabel felt subconsciously and needs the explanation.

At the end of the film, the characters stand for something, rethink it all. Begin to look differently at the world. They become available those knowledge that was previously hidden behind the prism of perception. They can think of those things that were for them unreachable.

And most valuable to the viewer after viewing felt the same. I think Joachim Trier's turned out to achieve this.

The film "Louder than bombs" is a tragedy for the family, in which happened to a woman, mother and wife, dedicated his life not family and service of humanity. Her mission — convey the world through photos of those horrible things happen hot spots. Husband left his career as an actor despite what he had good prospects thanks to its"cute" appearance, and began raising two sons. In a result, men used to live without wife and mother. Yes, they were proud of it. When it back home, they wanted to remain with them forever. But they are managed to keep her in your heart and in your life. It felt Isabel. All that she had to see and experience in the hot spots are so devastating to her that she never could see. She wanted to go home — in the family, but it it is made redundant. Go through the whole accumulated pain of humanity in lonely Isabel are not able ended other.

From this fact and begins the film. It's been 3 years after her death. The eldest son of John lives separately, have had a wife and child. The youngest son of the Conrad is a student in high school, he creepy introvert — in the typical school loser, but not at home along with the father. Father Jean teaches in the school of Conrad.

Psychologically, subtly, interesting and, most importantly, without idealism is shown as shown memory and love these three men to the deceased wife and mother. Conrad falls in love with the girl who read to a literature lesson, a small lyrical excerpt, which sparked pleasant memories of mother. John accidentally met in the hospital, his ex-girlfriend Erin, have whose mother is dying from cancer. They met 3 years ago that killed Isabelle. Surging memories of time and a common tragedy unwittingly joins them, and as a result of John's having an affair with Erin. Jean has an affair with teacher Conrad, looks very similar to the Isabel. The heroes of the film — ordinary people with all peculiar to them;feelings which are called weaknesses. As a rule movies idealize love and other moral values, putting us for the edification of the vices of the characters. In this film, there and the share of moralizing that makes it present, not a twisted reflection of human feelings in the tragedy that knows this family.

Don't tell about the cons of the film. For each , but I personally do not had the disclosure of the relationships of the characters in the period when Isabel was alive. He is reflected only by some journal thoughts Isabel about their returns from the mission:"... Yes, they want you were nearby. Here more... you they are needed."

And another point I lowered the rating to the film for the game Jesse Eisenberg in the role of the elder son. All other actors were much more expressive in their roles.
