John Carney — the Director is typical of whose work with know the first frame or synopsis. If there is good music at the same time, the long-suffering Dublin, genuine emotions, misunderstood creators — so the creation of the painting had a hand in Carney. Here and "sing Street" was absolutely in this spirit. With a sweet taste of 80s and new wave era.

Conor — a teenage boy living in Dublin along with his parents, brother and sister. The economic crisis struck, and Conor of the private school goes to school of the Christian Brothers sing Street. With its marginal mentors-the tyrants and other "happy" realities of the working area of Dublin in the 80s. However, in this grayness there is one beam light — a mysterious stranger, who every day stands at the house opposite. To get closer to her, Conor is in urgently assembles a team and prepares to shoot a music video. For a short period of time Connor becomes Cosmo, anoint himself a futurist, is experiencing a musical influence from the speakers of the "new romantics" Duran Duran to the pioneers of "merry melancholy" The Cure and personal life — from intoxicating love to disappointment back.

Of course, the film is filled with music for more than. All naively romantic narrative "sing Street" is under the soundtrack of the aforementioned Duran Duran, The Cure (in the works of the fictional group Sing Street is obvious the motives of these two legendary bands), and also Motorhead, The Jam, Daryl Hall & John Oates, Joe Jackson, M, Adam Levine. However, all movies Kearney music is the main character.

What the beauty of "sing Street," even among other films, John Carney, — it is very simple, understood and light but it is very atmospheric. There are no special drama or philosophy. But but it is very, shall we say, the "correct" ending, which is not negates an hour and a half of the narrative is up to him, "no oil" impression. And, contrary to popular reviews, this movie is not about love, not about a teenage difficulty of being (like the recently released "Good to be a wallflower" or legendary hotly me favourite "the Breakfast Club""), not about the torments of a choice or need of escape from the oppressive reality (as very cool, but unfortunately, narrowly known "Gypsy 83"). This film is about love music primarily.

It's amazing. John Carney, who directed the earlier absolutely boring, predictable, dull melodrama "once in the life" with mark Ruffalo and keira Knightley, have done literally the same thing, but in Irish scenery and with the young actors, a good half of which does debutants, beautiful film that can become a row with the best examples of youth melodramas of the 80s-90s.

1985. To live in Ireland very good. All more young people decide to give up on the ferry to neighboring island and to find happiness at London.

The main character lives in family, which all is not the most successful way. Parents closer tends to the divorce is over the family hanging mortgages and in order to save the young man transferred to school is cheaper. There it is perceived as not the best way, poison stringent requirements of the appearance among peers, appear willing wanton to go for face. There appears on the horizon like unattainable girl, with which however manages to find a common language and begins "quest to rescue the Princess of the castle".

The usual romantic film for young people, it would seem. But there is a caveat. And it was the time of the action.

The music scene of the ' 80s blooms smell. Musicians open for yourself synths. Comes a new sound. The kings of the pop charts become Duran Duran. Arise young ambitious group making a "sound future" and playing songs filled with "happy sad": Depeche Mode, Joy Division, The Jam, The Cure, Spandau Ballet and etc.

And here this culture creates a great context for the development of simple but a good script.

Of course, I'm here subjective. I just love this music. But looking at the development of the hero under the influence of the musical idols, I think of myself. The main character opens for itself new wave for the first time and colors bangs. When he opens for The Cure does the same bouffant as Robert Smith is clothed in Gothic cloak. And later digested all this background and discover whole the scene finds its style and begins to resemble something of a cross between Bryan ferry of Roxy Music and David Byrne of Talking Heads. And I remember a young green when wore wide pants watching clips decl or started angrily yelling at the first heard the song Linkin Park System of a Down. And he began to shape their sense of taste and your own unique style. After all people have to be something unique and unique.

Sing Street — this is a storehouse for the attentive person with the right background. A lot of references to one or other bands of that time and just a cultural reality.

But above all still infinitely sweet movie with simple but a good story in the spirit of the old melodramas, which sends warm greetings to the "Pretty in pink" and"the Breakfast Club".

Of 9 10

Incredibly nice and sweet nostalgic film with its warm and a pleasant feeling of mild boredom and a pleasant aftertaste. and subsequent perekachivanie classic new wave and Synthpop.

When the future Director of the film "On the edge", "Once" and"once in life" John Carney studied in he was one of those guys are ghosts floating in the school corridors and seem to be a gray mouse, in as in fact inside of them live a unique and extraordinary personality. As for most of these children, a real salvation for John Carney was the music — she gave him the meaning, direction and the ability to Express yourself. The Director came back to this period when I was looking for a plot for his new film. The idea is to tell about a lost young man who finds himself through music, it seemed Carney is very attractive and he began work on the script, which subsequently transformed to film "sing street" — an attractive mix of teen drama and a kind of romantic Comedy.

In the court of the eighties. Ireland is experiencing not the best times, but the family of the hero and even more so falling apart on part. The financial problems created by the upcoming breakup of parents are fundamentally changing his life and he's looking for a way to truly Express yourself. This method can become a music — that looks future, do not dwell on the past. In the film is John Carney's "sing Street" is not a story of love her story love music and the unrelenting desire to create and to experiment. Imagine that you write an autobiography and you say for each Chapter of your life you need to pick up the soundtrack. If the job seems to you insanely complex, then do not handle preview "sing Street" — for a picture can be assessed only one who is on life with music and understands the beauty its creation, as her contemplation. Not mention that in the new film by John Carney need not only to watch, but and listen to — good offer blissful material for last of the Director no absolutely no problems.

But "sing Street" — not only a love story to music and girl, still story of the thirst for freedom. The main character discards the unnecessary conventions that stand in the way it expression, or just not have a sense of themselves for themselves. Creativity becomes for him like a big eraser that rapidly erases fear and uncertainty. Therefore, "sing Street" will not only a great gift for those who loves music with all my heart and heart, but and can become a real anthem for non-conformists and mad dreamers. And finally, "sing Street" is just a good independent film, starring roles in which performed exclusively by young people, not have acting experience that can give odds to many eminent and experienced colleagues at the workshop. It is the charisma of the lead actors makes this film so unique is the anthem of youth and everything she brings — openness, desire to fight, to be better and to take risks.
