Never thought about life, goals, the dream, yeah and what is the link in we job? And maybe it's time to Wake up and think about things? Not everyone can understand our picture of the world, maybe not everything is ready, but try, think, think. "The millionaire of slums" — light level path to our knowledge. Mistakenly believe that this is a film about the person who was able to be achieved after going through the difficulties and experiences. It is something more, life history, life we are you that picture of the world that will open your eyes much of than you even didn't know existed.

How can we offer the latest movies? Intrigue, good setting, high — interesting plot. But here deep in the development and thoughts work, a kind of philosophical thread that is around us, have not found. Surprisingly, in this picture you can find much more described just above. Why the choice fell on "the Millionaire of slums"? Can really — destiny...

If to tell about the plot of this film, then talk about the movie itself, but is not just. This film must be understood. In it's got soul, great script and storyline, allowing you to tell the main — our lives.

Banal, it would seem that the game is in the project "Who wants to be a millionaire" resulted in a sentimental story about the life of the protagonist, who managed to go from the poverty, to the execution of the cherished American dream. On interview the police Jamal tells the sad story of his life: the adventures experienced along with brother skirmishes with local gangs, their tragic love. Each Chapter is a personal story gave him a way answers to questions of the quiz. Each case of the life of the protagonist allows to understand much of about than you thought about than sorry and experienced, which is not understand.

Surely, you are wondering what exactly we can tell the movie? Show the truth, reveal to life — as all hard, you say. But have to give credit to the filmmakers, they do not afraid to open the viewers eyes to the modern world, a world of cruel and severe. Yes, removing a tattered screen with a boring system, we saw a real life she was hiding. Poverty, lawlessness and impunity that how we think is far behind us, away from the so-called "the illusion of a prosperous world."

Take a look at India — where do the excesses and lawlessness. The government, television, trying to protect from this "horror" at this palming instead of illusory prosperity of Western countries, where supposedly in order. And all sharply turn to the American dream, only to mistakenly forgetting about that makes people go to such lewdness — those imposed on television the desire to the enrichment of the money, the American dream and the treacherous government.

It makes us to be distracted from more pressing the to change to their real interests, the path to our dreams. "The millionaire of slums" makes us to Wake up and understand the truth. The great deception we are forced to believe the government and TV. Survive well only people capable of to solve this problem. And the sad story of the life of the protagonist — proof.

This is a brilliant movie with equally brilliant production and study of the atmosphere of the picture. A first-class Director's work, where every frame, every scene make you beauty in the backrest and think about myself: "I believe in this...". Think about it with the other hand, see may — is it really the fate of all the change?

8 Academy awards, national recognition, awards various awards and festivals, rave reviews from the most demanding critics...
"The millionaire of slums" has become a phenomenon of 2008. Indian coloring and softening "sobriety" really "English" Director Danny Boyle — here he recipe for such a successful cocktail party.

Indeed, the film and its creators have something to praise
First, it is of course the story itself (it would seem — all simply nowhere, fate, coincidence, love, in the end... But as "wrapped" — something!)

Second, this stunning camera work (shooting slums,the Taj Mahal, great close-UPS), the third is actors... How they positive, right words no: Dev a Patel — just an example for imitation, even, and utterly loyal, it seems that million needs to win only a man, just because it is no other Latishka. Thought more beautiful women than Ashwaria Paradise in India it is impossible to find, but I was wrong — Frida Pinto is so good and so wonderful smile, not to describe. Even the brother of Jamal — the in the end, it turned out good, justice and he won here so to say finally — children and play especially not necessary, but all very charming.

It seems to be everything is fine, even sickly, if you want.
But I'm not feeling that it is not the most commercial project for the history of cinema,
everything is so right that the "sincerity" on which fiercely all hint, it seems a terrible fake.

Forgive me millions(and I think it is so much poklonnikov at this film), but I think Danny Boyle wanted to be a millionaire filming this film.

I will not argue: the film is very good, but is not masterpiece not the best film of 2008.

8 from 10.
