Good neighbor unlikely. I'm sealing up a monument in the genre, but if someone will be able to see this directorial debut Qasr farahani, then have all chance for a time he will leave a mark in your memory. In the first place, thanks to an interesting story, which albeit not directed in the best possible way, but able to hook.

In the film take place three story line — the main action, in which two teenagers as they say "for fun" decided to conduct his experiment on the elderly neighbor, then the memories in the past the neighbor, played by James Caan, and the epilogue — the hearing, which occurs after all these events, but know tell me what exactly what happened.

All these three times, scattered parts, but the closer time moves to its end, the view a more about this whole story in General. From the disadvantage is the periodic "freeze" scenario, unnecessary scenes, dialogues. Yes, some places have the film a good atmosphere and stress, often in observing the house of our main character.

The final film is a little disappointing, if we consider the film in the context of the Thriller genre, because after an hour of suspense, the film removes the mask and shows itself in another way. Turned a cautionary story of how curiosity intrusion in private life can cause a tragedy. The however, the film is very far from worth status good as the way and idea.

An elderly recluse Harold Greyni selected two teenagers in as they of the experiment, the purpose of which is to force nothing suspecting a person to believe that it in the house is haunted by writing to set hidden camera a natural reaction to this "poltergeist". Greyni brought before the audience a sort of demon in the guise of a man, with concentrated anger, irritability and tension which comes from each actions, words or facial expressions. B combined with how Harold described one of the teen, the cruelty of his life is not should cause no doubt.

Despite what is the debut feature film of Kasra farahani, note the coherent, thought-out direction with psychological well-placed accents. In addition to the trivial of history and quality of suspense also, this film is gradually revealed as a very intelligible part of the semantic depth and distinctly formulated with the point of view of morality.

The story is partly presented in mockumentary style with the inevitable presence of a few insipid scenes empty prattle, only required to create the spirit of an Amateur documentary. However, all this is here in reasonable and pseudodocumentaries on surprisingly annoying.

Already in the beginning of the film the viewer is given to understand that the line "documentary" footage is of some historical tragedy. Who is the victim of this tragedy, and what happened — in this construction, the main intrigue of the whole picture. However, it is not only this intrigue is of interest here. The film gains depth when the inner world hero Kaan gradually exposed through his associative flashbacks. The grief sends his thoughts, not fear. Farahani thus draws the viewer's attention on how "alien soul — dark". How prejudice can be destructive.

We must highlight the excellent James Caan. This the role — one best I saw his performance. The psychology of this painting at all successful and verified the direction, not had such weight, if the Director was an actor of the caliber of Kaan. And someone else I not that it is difficult, I just not want to present to him. It perfect for such a complex, multi-faceted and therefore very real character. More accurately pick an actor was almost impossible.

The work of a little-known Iranian Director personally, I belong to masterpiece. I'll explain why. First, we deal with highly relevant to the history of the entertainment the youth of today with using the latest information technology. Two of a young man, well versed in fashion stuff of modern civilization, found out that over people from time to time make experiments related to identify the specific psychological qualities in the change in the usual conditions of existence. It turns out that if a man out routine, then it is possible to learn a lot... And here are our heroes decided to try it. In for their pilot study they chose a strange in the vision of others, sullen, surly neighbor, recluse, recluse. Purchased equipment, installed security cameras at him in house and — forward. The experiment began. It would seem the guys "innocently" having fun, breaking all the conceivable laws that protect the right to privacy. But the game has gone too far, and stated in the experiment was to be like a dangerous event. Perhaps this story could be trite ending. But all the zest of that the ending is not trivial. And the audience, he at least will surprise.

Second, a very thoughtful scenario. Thirdly, the manner of deployment of the plot allows to relate the film to the category of a good Thriller. The game James Caan believe with the first minute. It so well accustomed to the role of aging, no one has not need a lone man in the street, victim of the experiments computerized youth.

Film and instructive to everything else. Maybe he will make you think even the younger generation. The film showed the consequences of the invasion in one's privacy.
