I learned about this movie, when I decided to go to cinema the horror. On the time had only. Know I a thousand times regretted went to this movie. It is not a horror, perhaps a second-rate Thriller.

But about all order:

The story takes place near a certain Leon, played by Aaron Poole, after his mother's death, her inheritance, including the house, goes to the protagonist, but early knows something the walls of the house...

After 20 minutes of the film, I realized wasted time. Except one situation, I did not scared not has caused no emotion. The film does not dynamic not awesome, not "exciting" consciousness. Perhaps those for whom it like, say what I like movies with blood and meat, because such this product is no. But I realize this film was meant as a psychological I definitely like such, for example "Lights". Here is a psychological film. I understand that the film the same low-budget and turn the Director does not could. But my opinion events, and Director to make a good film for any money that in my opinion, Rodrigo Gudino not out, and last 10 minutes of the film just explained the whole movie from the start to the end. Question. Why do the rest of the hour?

I believe that "Will" absolutely not horror not will touch the viewer. But this is my personal opinion, so I ask forgiveness from those who liked the movie, but as you know, the taste and color of comrades there.

You know, it is surprising abstract. She does not match, because the film absolutely about other. Yes, the dealer came to the house, which inherits from his deceased mother. And then it must be important: It is rarely visited her and almost spoke. The mother in zdravstvuyet son was so alone this loneliness made her seek solace in the environment is absolutely abnormal religious fanatics.

The atmosphere is there due to the fact that knows the essence of a character. It is difficult to understand how such a number of roles(except on TV). One character and no one else. The main character's mother does not even appears in the memories.. only in two episodes-on photos and in a coffin. All. We deliberately show visitor, it is closed the door and does not destroy the overall mood to this time created by the author. Unknown to this it is to understand and to feel alone, I ran the hero of the film and alone in he has doomed a loved one. And the fact that this close person have not to return, only adds to the thick paint in without so heavy and hopeless atmosphere. And "Gothika introduced in film it for thickening paints. The hero of the film cries out help in night, but it please do not call he remains ALONE with their distressing thoughts and fears... it seems that they materialists and soon brought him literally insanity.

The author of the final is still has shown itself in an employee of the security services, whether sneer, whether to show the hope for single, the Lee's funeral these expectations... each must understand for himself. Almost all have seen here a trivial Ghost story, but not so. This film about more. Good movie. Not drop your loved ones, do not thatitis family and all good will come back to you many times. I hard to find the reason I could put a low rating to this film. It is not tightened.

"Testament" — intimate, mystical Thriller by canadian Director of Mexican origin Rodrigo Gudino. In the past year, the film was presented in Cannes and has received numerous positive ratings. In her bought USA Europe. Have us as hobnob in such cases, the film was released only in limited release.

Despite the simple not too original story, "Testament" is filled with serious reflections on the theme of confrontation between divine faith and atheism. To the same is made with love genre traditions and has a deep and dark mystical atmosphere, what is of special interest to fans of such movies.

A young man on behalf of Leon arrives at the house of his deceased mother, which is not saw childhood, which it is linked very complicated relationship. With every minute of your stay in the house, Leon all more clearly feels the whole its strangeness and soon realizes that one or like can still dwell in him...

In fact, the whole movie — the study "universe" of the old mansion. Quite a long time the audience will be involved in the journey its rooms, stairways, ceremonial, attics and basements. We have to enjoy the exquisite home interior, vintage, carved panels and whimsical elements in its environment. But in addition, almost immediately, through a variety of strange objects, menacing figures and statues, filled with mystical symbolism, dolls and paintings, through the play of light and shadow in we will gradually penetrate disturbing and gloomy atmosphere of this place. With time, the voltage will rise, the strangeness will become the sinister outlines of hostility and faith, to which the mother of Leon so strongly cruelly called — will have to pass a test...

But not expect the final will give an answer on all questions. Something like expected to auteur cinema, will be frame this "understatement", without doubt, only adds to the picture appeal.

On the other hand, there anything would be a "new word" in the genre or to produce a truly vivid impression and to leave a special mark in memory. All too right and exactly, without any "insolence", conservative, and because a bit bland on taste.

It is difficult to recommend "Will". Chances are that the film may disappoint. And that would appreciate the film one desire may not be enough. You need to be patient and to have the appropriate mood. In this movie important all the nuances of the performances. Watch "one eye" just not worth it.
