I will not write about the plot of the film, because the gist of it appears only in the end, and all going to this resembles a strange set of scenes — "pieces of the puzzle" — from the life of a tax agent in the performance of will Smith.

The film has two great qualities that every good is in itself myself, but together provide a powerful effect. First, the plot of "touches" literally with the first frame, drawing pictures, disturbing consciousness and forcing to "think out" what is happening in the frame. Second, almost up to the end of the film it is unclear what also generally happens, and the ending gives one answer on all questions.

In this film resembles "Maps, money, two trunk" and"Fight club", although the plot is quite far from the movies.

The only negative of the picture where I can not put the maximum score is a kind of tightness formed in the second half of the film, — love line was too long (at least according to than other "pieces of the puzzle" about we are given literally nuggets of information).

The film is heavy (and consequently watch it need the mood), but long emotional impact.

I will say that me this the film made a huge impression! He showed me what is a man a real man! Who is able to do good and to live for other people. Showed proving that everyone can be better! The film drew my look at such a say like simple but really need in this world of truth! Made me think about my mistakes, my perform actions actions to seek what makes us human beings: love, compassion, understanding, and compassion for people are not friends or relatives so that need our help. Because if this is not going to do I, you, we do not will do who!

And the conclusion of this is that whatever we were now bad or good or the eyes of others that would not to do not hurt other people, we can always become better to say, to do good. And that would not saying good always rewarded and everyone should understand that people should be treated so you want you belonged.

I am 21 year I sat cried to the end of the movie can be said as a child. Although some say that a man may cry for a man, or inside when she is not one, or even openly but to be not who is not seen.

An unusual love story in which love — a sacrificial force.

The second joint work of Director Gabriele Muccino and actor will Smith after the painting "In the pursuit of happiness", which is not almost inferior to the first. So well on the film worked as a minimum of 30 people working on"Pursuit..." that itself itself hints at the similarity of the paintings, and say that it really is. In the picture is clearly different camera work (in "Pursuit..." is much more professional operator), but a similar idea: the man is committed, no matter no matter what purpose, do not important for a, the aims to make you and the world is better. But still, it's review the film "Seven lives" (incidentally the original title of the film "seven pounds" that refers to the name of one of the works of William Shakespeare, in which a cunning Jewish moneylender Shylock, in the terms of the promissory notes has the right to cut a pound of flesh from the body of the Venetian merchant Antonio if he did not return the debt in time).

The tape has a clever plot, and the only reason I will write a few words about the development in the film. According to the course of events in the movie there are new characters that are somehow connected protagonist — Ben Thomas. Sometimes in film there are so called flashforward, which tell us about the preceding events. Ben travels in search of the people, for the people who may help.

Will Smith on a couple Rosario Dawson created a very sentimental love couple.

Will Smith again proves stupid crowd that it is not only muscled superhero, saving the world, he's talent, actor with a big letter A. the will is a real sympathy and empathy with the part of the audience. Yes not could it be otherwise, the good guy Smith plays.

From the film is a deep idea — the idea of finding the meaning of life. Once I get a chance to change your Outlook on life, to change himself. peace and to use it, you need to use this not only the situation in which was the main character. And Muccino not ruining such a potential, on the contrary, gives it its depth, its own flavor.

"This script I just "the tower broke" — spoken out after reading the script will Smith, I share it opinion. I watched this movie not once, but will tell you after the second viewing the film is perceived even better.

The film is truly worthwhile, even more necessary than standing.
