"Mustang" — the author's serious drama with hint of a genre film will have as fans of prison stories, and fans of films about horses. It is very personal and deeply dramatic story of two characters-the loners who for various reasons find themselves in prison. The authors do not tend to put on display the tragedy of the events. The biggest part is hidden from eye, but all clear is of interest. In the film in so many words, so the focus is on emotions, attitudes and internal message. In addition to the external circumstances (the prison) the main characters are very similar in the state of mind. They understand each other like kindred souls are shackled with the same chain. The hard, but, despite various limitations, they strong continue their way. Every look is filled with drama, and each word sharpened the truth.

For a writer and Director ENT de Clermont-Tonnerre is a real debut in the great movie. Until she filmed a short film "Bunny" with a very similar concept, but there is already the woman prisoner, in the framework of the correctional program brought the rabbit.

If we talk about making General, it performed very well. Of course, in the picture there are some defects where the Director simply does not have lasted for some things, but it does not spoils the overall impression of viewing. Competent the atmosphere is very accurately conveys the inner state of the characters, their communication, pain and a deafening cry that cannot be heard, but it felt almost always and everywhere.

In the framework of entertainment is a very simple movie, where no prison drive and criminal action, but there is a profound drama that lifts this picture on a fairly high level of audience perception. For true fans of the good author, the movie is a is a wonderful pastime, and for all the rest of the film can be very boring and a waste of time.

PS As said one of their characters in the film, there are horses, which to break, and are those who can't.... That's about this says the film "Mustang". Pleasant viewing.

The artistic debut of a certain ENT de Clermont-Tonnerre (probably many know her by role in "the diving bell and the butterfly") under the name "Mustang" — strong drama, so to speak, by heart, but also with a large number of friends of the viewer rhythms. Based solely on personality Matthias Sonarda (and, of course, that the actor is held in the frame), the film tells the story of a Novel — the prisoner, emotionally destroyed his crime. He finds redemption by training a wild untamed Mustang. The idea is noble and if you believe the final die, such a program for the rehabilitation of prisoners do exist, but the Mustang is not should be able to beat them, from-for what all rolled into a little snotty melodrama about a man, "which was free even in jail."

The anger that boils inside of the Novel, not just to fade. Have problems with his daughter, frightening inmate, and now with a horse, which he is trusted — Mustang is the same as stubborn as himself the protagonist. Their first lesson runs incredibly bad. It seems that the novel is not can get along with animals. Of course, to the until the hero is not aware of his existential crisis, comes to the catharsis, and will start to associate yourself with horse emotionally.

The Mustang is filled with elements that are not developed as follows. In a sense, the scenario reflects the simmering energy of the characters (the Novel and his partner of Mustang). And from the point of view of implementation and scenery (the film was shot in an abandoned correctional facility), all events in General can be described by some modern "non-Western". And protagonist — alone novel is too poorly written. We know about this person (now and whom he was to contact prison) that clouds without irrational actions of the character. Even a link to the Mustang seems forced. To tame a wild animal — task light while Conerts trying to make his Novel as accurate as possible, the details applied to each other turns out a mess.

Drama brings the viewer revelations: it is too simple though and soulful film. In General, the narrative here is too soft, which penetrate into the roots of a real program of rehabilitation through communication with our smaller brethren do not work. Indeed, if the local thieves and behave like the intellectuals, then why do worry about their correction? The Mustang relies too much on these intrapersonal metamorphosis, which the rest of the items here is simply poorly developed. I want to draw Parallels with "Rider" Chloe Zhao — if the film is not started out before the Mustang, then the latter would have looked stunning especially when it is necessary to ask certain questions of masculinity. And as soon as the viewer show images of real prisoners whose life changed with the help of horses, realize what the potential of the Mustang missed.
