Beautiful and realistic picture. The Director is very well kept balance of drama and Comedy. A film about life, love.
The film deals with a very important life issue, over which rarely think — many people have jobs than their true, innate callings. And choosing such work, because it is easier, so is reliable in life. In the result of this choice there is a dissatisfaction, an inner imbalance. The only thing that survive — love.
Started watching it, it is very difficult to stop. It is difficult to break out of a dynamic and captivating storyline, from a slim romantic moments of the film, from that is — Chicago's — jazz... for game of actors. In this role De Niro is difficult to imagine,... is not subject to all talent! Each film with him — is a classic of world cinema. It is not just a name, and De Nero — a sign of quality.
John McNaughton gained fame immediately after the release shocked many of the film "Henry: portrait of a serial killer" (1986) and was taken to a note by Martin Scorsese, decided to support one of the producers of the next movie of the Director. For support of the project was invited favorite actor Scorsese Robert De Niro and as a partner he was taken by bill Murray, who previously played for in clay, speaking on here in an unusual way is hard, but just mafia.
The story of the friendship phlegmatic and courteous police photographer Wayne Dobie (De Niro), for this reason called irony colleagues Mad Dog, and gangster Frank Milo (Murray), develops first in the story of rivalry over a woman, and then the drama of the characters in both of the hero pose as if turned inside out role.
Exceptionally flexible, and well-mannered, Wayne, and even aggravated sexual complex after a failed relationship with a wife satisfies their spiritual requests are not so much work, as in off-duty passion for artistic photography. In turn, Frank every thing is certainly analyzing with a personal therapist, immoderate creative ambitions implements in night clubs, trying himself on stage the role of a comic-talker.
After Wayne accidentally saves the life of Frank, they become chums. Brought up on the laws of the criminal world, Milo chooses to take Wayne back and sends it to the girl Glori. Practicing personal debt of the owner, Glori, in turn, itself is calculated for the debts of his brother. The week spent with a leggy beauty "tete-a-tete under one blanket", saves Wayne from rigidities and mental discomfort. To point of no return "the leased premises" Wayne already reckless love Glori does not want to concede under any conditions...
Unlike the discouraging cruelty "Henry-killer" this film is designed in Comedy-romantic, but sometimes frankly bizarre manner. In addition, all the acting (even the second plan) so thoroughly built that remind the outputs of the beneficiaries. Therefore, in viewing the greatest pleasure will go to those spectators, who above all appreciate a well-told story, compelling and recognizable characters.
Fans De Niro is recommended to pay attention on two key issues. The actor here was only the second time in his career will sing on the screen. And first time (and 50 years of age) to engage in front of camera love. It sex-somersaults with Uma Thurman can easily decorate something (nobody compiled) movie-the anthology under the conditional name "the clumsy charm of Vice".
McNaughton in a further a couple of times tried to stake in the Comedy genre, but all the time not been in the topic. Here he made full use of carte Blanche, making in all respects a high-quality film, interesting biased, so and unsophisticated audience. On surprisingly, the film has collected inappropriately a few spectators. American critics, however, have found that a very specific explanation: the film was completed a list released one after the other paintings, where to borrow women.
Worse, the mortgage for the Uma Thurman was the lowest: Pretty woman (1990) Julia Roberts gave in rental 3000 bucks in week "Honeymoon in Las Vegas" (1992) for Sarah Jessica Parker was offered from 65 thousands of dollars, and for demi Moore in "Indecent proposal" (1993) and more — a million. Here and it turns out that the authors only late with this project, but in a sense much.
