Yesterday I looked at another musical film "dreams" (with the English title of the film "Teen Spirit" is translated as "Teen spirit." Why is it so translated, our translators, but they know. Probably thought, Director other filmmakers don't know how to correctly name the movie.)

"Follow the dream" — this is a film about the girl is violet, who loves to sing. It still a minor, lives in England, some island, in short the province. Works part-time in a local restaurant, a waitress and singer. Wants to sing on the big stage and go to London. Against her mother her Hobbies are singing, my father was all sad in her life. To him in the island for the first time in many years comes to casting the coolest vocal competition for young talents. And she, of course, wants to be a part of it and pass the qualifying stage, go to London to win.

She meets a man (Vlad), which previously was an Opera singer. And he helps her prepare the vocal contest, she also self-taught and many vocal chips not know. Violet is the first few steps and gets into the semifinals, which already be held in London. There on her way to meet the difficulties that she must be able to overcome.

The main role in the film (the role of violet) played El fanning. El started making movies 4 years. On the moment it is only 21 year. Many viewers may be surprised to know that El fanning can sing and sang in the film itself. All the matter in that she sang in the school choir, and basic skills she had. "I always wanted to be a singer: dreamed since won't actress a pop star. I seems that each we have this little secret: we know how to sing or no, but we want to take a look at the microphone, go to stage and feel we look. So I always thought of myself as a singer" — the actress said in one interview. A few months El fanning singing with Marius De Freeze — music producer "Romeo + Juliet" and"Moulin Rouge" and etc.

In the film you can see how violet "zazvezdilsya". I think every singer was such. When something begins to happen, and the artist begins to believe that it's cool, it generally the most classy, talented and etc. Here and violet after arriving in the capital, getting the attention of the producers of the show, the other stars, I imagine that she will be able itself that she knows and understands. And even "sent" Vlad — man, she helped was around. This put into the threat of further participation in violet competition.

Personally, I liked the movie. When I watched it, I felt violet emotions, her feelings, joy and etc. I advise Everyone to watch this movie, you must like to singers need to watch, so as not to make such mistakes as the violet.

This project has already 18 producers. I in shock! As a simple film contained a number of producers? This project represents the kitchen of the TV show "the Voice. Children." About how from the province girl violet goes to London. About what's the movie? About that province always pure and rich in talent. Violet (played by El fanning) shows a simpleton who is tired of the surrounding domestics, which is the most just loves to sing. Violet is a Polish immigrant, which represents the entire hard-working Polish people. Film me it seemed boring due to the fact that it is all too easy.

I don't know the impact of projects like "Voice. Children", but the film is boring. If not constantly sounding music, I would definitely the hall fell asleep. I the film is not liked because of the large number of patterns. Again, the province, again, simple girls, again, geniuses — alcoholics. the Film is made at the provincial movie templates. In there no intrigue. I accuse the project in narrowness, in the predictability and in mediocrity.

18 producers not could make the project more interesting. London is gorgeous, everything is here. I this project reminded career of the singer Katy Perry. If you like to sing — sing as much as you want.

This film poses the question: "Why do we need such national competitions?" The film is very simple and predictable. I the film is not like.

Who would neither said, but Elle fanning — one of the main modern indie stars are well-established in a blue screen. Young, but very talented actress, has a very extensive filmography and creative range for their age. In"follow the dream", I think she gets the role, which is more suitable debut actress — the role of a young girl whose the voice of an angel leads her on international competition. All this causes the destruction of the tales of show business and modern history about the Cinderella that compared to other modern films about the breakdown of the skin over the world of the pop industry looks a little bit refined.

Violet — the girl, a native of distant Islands from the coast of Britain. It holds all the time or tuition, or with the help of the mother, or at work. Violet is very difficult to be in an endless cycle of study and work, causing the girl to peers seems distant. Her main hobby — music and dance alone. Special talent in violet a beautiful voice from a hidden world the less than a former Opera singer, Vlad decides to return to her love of music that girl said about yourself in talent Teen Spirit.

It is not surprising that inexperienced violet here gets the huge success of her performance — a breath of fresh air because of natural person among the illusions of the music industry. In their innocence young polka opposed to the gorgeous (and bad) girls, painted under the layers of makeup and costumes.

Naturally, such a plot is not can be fall. Violet is offended by the world of pop music. Soulless entertainment landscape can ruin any trying to show "follow the dream". Here there is a place like unbridled parties, seductive and contracts lying on the other side of the world creativity, however, this theme seems to be not gets the development. The dark side of the music business in a "dreams" are too childish and somehow innocent, yeah and it's hard to say what the credo of "main — be yourself" often dominates in real life. The script desperately not enough cruelty in those places where is dominated by weak morality. Of the effect of provocation not and because "the dream" there is chaste and naive.

While "the dream" is not very well structured. Sometimes the movie felt only a series of music videos, which are in the plot. Video thinking about which I love to remember the older generation, sold here full — "follow the dream" short, but too active. The songs rely only on the rhythm, and not the desire to tell a memorable story.

Quiet and contemplative indie drama is good, but unevenly. Emotionally affecting "a Star is born" or a spectacular breakdown covers like "VOX Suite" made with great reverence and creativity and "the dream" can only attract an audience in the form of young girls, fans of fanning and casual viewers, not familiar this optimistic celebration of life. The however, "follow the dream" made a touching and atypical "teen slag", which already dubbed this project foes. You cannot be so categorical: in "follow the dream" no nothing outstanding, but it still a strong entry in the filmography of the wonderful El fanning.
