Excellent movie did Peter wear, very masterfully delivered with quite an original plot. The direct opposite of the stupid reality show, because it's bad — observe other people. The hero of the film specially raised for the sake of the show, he lives a normal life, an ordinary man, only his know worldwide and he not know.

And here once enlightenment comes, and you start to fight for his freedom happiness. The hero is completely empathize when he struggling your life the sea, already tears welling as it amazing footage, thanks to brilliant camera work. If it would reality, could only sympathize with the person living in this world.

The main role is played he Jim Carrey, and he did not being a comedian, and as a great dramatic actor, he played above and beyond. Jim has embraced in his image, recreating his very realistic, so the movie is not looks stupid and funny. Pleased with ed Harris, it was a little bit, but the final monologue, I think many will remember. Also curious to have a look at the game Natasha Macelhone, it is a pity a little.

Brilliant film, really impressed me, I watched with great pleasure, all the conditions of the genre are met, maybe even there are flaws, but obviously they not affect the rating of the picture. The soundtrack seems simple, but many songs are catchy, everything is fine interconnects, in the end it turns out the atmosphere is stronger realistic. Very strong movie, there are over what to think, just a masterpiece!

Wonder how I this movie isn't looked before. In childhood, even high school, not knowing the existence of this film, I he also sometimes fantasized that my house wherever I have cameras. And my life shows how the series, every day one of the series. And happy when something interesting happened, they say, that are on what to see. But in for a moment I laughed to myself realizing the absurdity of my thoughts... But that's probably not only I have had these thoughts, someone else thought about this decided to make a film which has caused in me only positive emotions. The original(at the moment) idea and good execution. Jim Carrey us showed (and then another show) that he is not just a comedian, and a real actor. Where , played by Jim Carrey, there he is the main star of the film, it is impossible to push aside on the second plan. Have me the creeps ran through the skin when he sitting a sailboat got "the photo" Sylvia, here is where he wanted to freedom of love. Watching the film I thought:is it possible to do it in the real world, the more our time than 1998 more technological possibilities for such a show. It's difficult to answer. I can tell you what the film is really commendable, for the original story, for a good game of actors and the Director. But still, something this film is not enough to become a cult

Absolutely brilliant movie, with all sides. To really, not even know what to take in review, because to waste time on obvious stuff like "the lovely antics of Jim Carrey" is not even want. And I want to talk philosophically to spread about, so to say, the idea of the tree.

Christof, the Creator of the show — surely the Creator and God of this small, but cozy world. He feels Truman an affectionate father, how to your work, your personal Adam, but, like Yahweh, he suffers from various weaknesses and anger, which translates into test the pain falling on share creations.

World, lovingly crafted for the Truman — is it Paradise. The place where there is no evil, because to false also intertwined with the very Foundation of existence, that has become unconditional good and the very Foundation. No unpredictability, no crimes, no mistakes, and the pain — all sterile and calibrated, as the clock mechanism, and in the family quarrel you will demonstrate a new brand of cocoa without any wasting time on unnecessary advertising. Very convenient.

In the world Truman — is the world each person, it is the sum of all our fears and problems, which, like a huge bubble (even the pavilion show symbolized in the shape of the bubble), keep us convenient the usual position, suggesting a sovereign horror for all change. This our personal secluded place, quiet and calm, the limits of which — frightening Nothingness, the Abyss. It is Heaven.

But with the time comes when you need to leave the formed heaven, not despite all fear of change, and step to a frightening emptiness. A symbol of these changes in heaven Truman-Adam speaks to Sylvia eve, prompted by the Serpent-Tempter — Freedom. It breaks partly habitual and sustainable world, and through the formed crack Truman absorb the fruit of the forbidden tree, calling into question everything around him, revealing its hitherto closed eyes.

6. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and it is pleased to eyes coveted because gives knowledge; and took of its fruit and ate; and gave also to her husband, and he ate. 

7. And opened the eyes of both of them, and they knew that they were naked, and they sewed Fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

We all you need to make your personal symbolic Samoshyna of Paradise. The outcome of the convenient familiar, stable world, right there, in the Unknown. Living in the bubble pavilion, it is impossible to know ourselves and the world around, it is impossible to reach the fragile border separating the world of foreign and the inner peace, to reach the eternal transformation of energy, curbing and telling God the Father farewell, you can begin to create your world, your private Show.

And all it had to push the door with the inscription "Exit".
