How was the movie? — you ask. the Film is good, but in the course of its 3/4-x like a very expensive advertising beer Ginness. He is bad. And a good story that is not fictional and the more valuable (if such circumstances were fictional writer, then to look would be worth absolutely). The storyline alone, she harmonious and consistent, the Director does not distracted particular, confuses the viewer and not fools his head with puzzles for that in the end to pull the rabbit out of the hat and thereby be discouraged. All very clear and clear. Despite the militant atheism of one of the main characters prevail, all well, Christian forgiveness and humility. It gives the film its feasibility. Yes, Yes, forgiveness, kindness and gentleness — here to which brings us movie. but negative side — is that this home his idea is poorly expressed, the artistic techniques that were used by the author, small and inexpressive. The actress, who played Philomena is a clever, strong-willed woman.

Because of these qualities the image of a meek, simple-minded girls (and then women) in the film succeeded. Therefore, in the result the question "what we pocherpnut by watching this movie" can be answered: just what do not spent it time action or immoral fantasy and thus the share received by per-filth in our minds and souls not increased. After the movie, feeling the same as and after reading a story in the newspaper on the same issue. In the film proposed a moral question, it is not calling your imagination in the dal not concerned about the conscience, not offers to determine what evil, and which is good. In this fault.

In General, after reading all of the previous comments to view, I expect the film something with this expectation went through 3/4 of the film, and only the last 20 minutes the Director of "woke up" and started this movie, but not having to start over.

From the very first frame, "Philomena" I instantly described it yourself as a "a very English movie", and it's strange even for me the description does not wanted to get out of my head. Well, well, let it remains. It to the extreme nice and elegant film about two completely different people: pragmatic smart journalist Martin Sixsmith, who was fired from BBC, "the little Irish lady" Philomena, simple and not very educated woman. Being very young, she got pregnant, and her father, not wanting to contemplate such a shame, gave his daughter in the monastery, where the birth. Ardent and stubborn Catholic, the nuns of the Abbey, with the beginning taught each girl how to Philomena that they are terrible sinners and they deserve it all your suffering. Each young mother is forced to work for the most difficult work in this "abode of God" and allowed to own children hour day. And then came the moment when Philomena took her baby, it and many other children gave for adoption to Americans.

Fifty years poor Philomena tired to keep all the secret finally told his daughter about this, one turn to Martin. First, do not very inspired by this idea, he warming to this story and sincerely trying to help to find the son Philomena. It was fun to watch how they act together: a deeply-religious and very friendly older woman, a loving unsophisticated novels about interclass love and a little snide agnostic Sixsmith, interested in Russian history and graduated from Oxford, where Philomena then it was called "Oxbridge". But for me, this history is not about it. For me this film is primarily about love between parents and children the ambiguity of things. Philomena, loving her son's boundless love, which half a century tried to find her own father, who refused daughters voluntarily, literally threw her out of his life. The son Philomena, the whole life is trying to return to her his half-sister of the same of the monastery, which is not even asked his biological mother. Nuns with cold hearts, believers in a merciful Lord, but not showing any mercy, in contrast with filomeni, is also a believer and until the last believe that did sin, but good affable even to the chef-Mexican maids "one on one million". The bride of Christ is not want to forgive the young girl for that naturally people Philomena, who managed to forgive the unnatural selected child from mother. Blind faith has destroyed many lives, but that faith I think that helped Filomena to endure and persevere through what it happened. Because forgiveness is — this exemption is not only forgive, but and forgiving.

Such movies usually do not become massively popular: there is no many fights, special effects and handsome with the cover page, but the film is nominated on"Oscar" does not in vain. Brilliant game Judi Dench and Steve Coogan, an interesting story with a surprise ending and great shooting.

This is an amazing movie! Going down trodden path, Director Stephen Frears was able to fill every minute of the picture of pain and despair, a discourse on the broken fates and lost forever-time that would a real challenge for a sentimental viewer. But no! Instead, the film is just full of incredible lightness, as if a story does not give such sad sides. Dosedependent interwoven here with English humour and subtle irony, and the main conclusion is presented as unobtrusive as possible.

Judi Dench — Philomena — and its companion — Steve Coogan — greater than harmonious acting Duo. They perfectly coped with their roles, showing the differences of their characters in the extent of infusing the characters with comical and touching.

As well-matched music, whose author is one of my favorite film composers — Alexander Depla. Two melodies heard in "Philomena" to still hear me head.

To tapes based on real events, a special relationship, because not just someone's fantasy or flight of fancy, and a real human life. This story cannot be seen simply as another word about forgiveness is — it is that behind him. View, and You'll understand.
