From that day when your mother will say love you, call the second witness ()
Even afraid to imagine how much lost world of the film industry, if Edward Norton returning from Japan's work not want to change his profession to acting. Well and because it still not have done, we have the honour to see those very role that he this Kinomir presented. Of course, you should start with it first (before him though there were two roles, but they were tiny) minor role in a Big movie, and in the legal Thriller "Primal fear".
Because it was his first, I did not expect from Edward any revelations, although guess the role will be played not anyhow — how. But that I saw... hell, it's really a talent! But everything order.

In the nineties, in USA was very popular genre of a judicial Thriller. That's when Hollywood gave the world such masterpieces of the genre, like "Customer" "Few good men". These films were known primarily for his acting work, so as they had to keep the audience's attention on himself, not having no advantage in the action scenes or beautiful scenery. They were alone, in the simple scenery of the courtroom, and were forced to show all, they are able. Scenes in such films as a rule, typically the detective, with certainly the emotional intensity in the final (which actually demonstrate the power of the actors).
In "Primal fear" the plot, though follows the basic cliches of the genre, all constantly surprises the viewer. Here, the story travels very evenly on the timing, never sagging never flying the speed of a bullet. And with each subsequent five-minute story reveals all new new mysteries. After 70 minutes, when it turns out that the character of Norton, Aaron suffers from multiple personality disorder (this is not a spoiler, on many drives to the film has the description about it is said. To the same not the most important revelation in the story part of the film, not be afraid) the film blends in an incredibly exciting psychological game of two actors. All stronger growing and results in the final in an incredibly emotional scene of the interrogation of Aaron.
I must say that the ending put me in shock. It was something. Hell, from the last few movies I have considered, even none give me so many powerful experiences in the final. Even knowing all the plot secrets and twists, when re-viewing the film on the contrary look still carefully, noticing not previously the visible parts. Well and, of course, again enjoying wonderful acting.
In General, acting together with the story — core, which holds the film. Richard Gere plays a beautiful and successful lawyer Martin Weil, which is taken for case the justification of 19-year-old boys in the murder of the Archbishop of the city. And although the role for Gere is quite familiar, he lost it is excellent. Laura Line is played not furniture, very clear and interesting character. The final interrogation scene with her participation was truly impressive. Not I expect from her this emotional tension — great dedication! Not mention McDormand, the wife of one of the Coen brothers. Here she is good-natured and faithful to a female neuroscientist. Almost all scene it is filled with some kindness. Already can't believe I saw this is a woman with serious selfishness and confidence was the Russian Embassy with the purpose to give Russian the drive with the secret intelligence of the CIA (burn After reading).

However, we'd like to stay on Edward Norton. If he is not, then I would never put the film that the score, which put. Yes, there's a great story, worthy of the quality of forensic Thriller. There is great acting. But without Norton, it would just good. He — diamond of this film, the catalyst for all the events. All frames it make you completely forget about the existence Line and McDormand, and even Gere. He replays of all. It transformation of the slight, diffident and stuttering Aaron in boorish, smug and aggressive Roja make another harder to cling to the screen to savor every phrase, every look Norton. I watched a movie in the original, without but, with Russian subtitles. And I assure You it's something. The film should look that way. Need to hear the voice that is Norton: stammering voice, slightly muffled tone... but already in the next second you can hear loud and clear, with a faster pronunciation of the voice... hell, if you close your eyes and include records of these votes, you may think that this is two different people! Norton is so believable in this role. Edward in the film when the transformation not just changing the look, the expression of the eyes and a disarming smile on the rude and boorish... he if changes the aura of your body and the viewer is literally body feels before it is a completely different person, with completely different views on life. These had a hell of a long time will remember.
The judicial atmosphere of a detective Thriller also works great local soundtrack by James Newton Howard. Ringtones style of slow jazz evoke memories of the old American detectives, in which the main characters went to black coats with big hats, with the cigars in mouth.
Primal fear — great forensic Thriller, with an interesting story and the divine acting components. This film can be reviewed endlessly, every time in first, enjoying the local actor's work. Have the first his role as Edward Norton proved to the world his acting talent. I'd recommend it to all people who love good stories and effervescent acting. From I'd add that the film is worth watching ONLY, I repeat, ONLY in the original. Otherwise you risk depriving yourself of half of those of emotions that I felt listening to the intonation of the characters. Because no you replace original remarks, and never not receive WHOLE the depth of the role of Edward Norton.
From me the highest score and place in personal collection:
10 of 10
