After reading a couple of years ago small size, but very exciting for the contents of the detective story by Sebastian Japrisot "Trap for Cinderella", I began to look for her. the film adaptation. But, to my disappointment, nothing is found, in addition to information about French film, filmed in the distant 1965.

I have to say, the book almost from the first pages took me whole and not let up to the very end. Interesting story, cleverly twisted plot, throwing the main character — not the victims, not the criminals and unpredictable finale. Just do not say from the very beginning, divined the intent of the author! To the last pages of the book to speculate about who on really girl, surviving with fire, it is impossible.

But not going to retell the content of the story, and will go directly to the film. So, in 2013 to the screens out the new film by British filmmaker Iain Softley on the famous works by S. Japrisot with the same name. The expectations were many, but not to say that this adaptation has granted them in full, though, General and did not disappoint.

Don't know why, but I expected to see something similar to the drama the style of "Noir" filled with the atmosphere of France of the 60's. the last century, however, Softley decided to the letters are not follow the source and safely moved the action of the picture in our time, to the same France — in England. Hard to say, have benefited from this movie, or lost, but perhaps the Director was counting on a specific audience, so I decided not to bother. However, all the main the main events take place in France, obviously adds to the charm of this movie.

Actually, the above — is little I don't quite satisfied British film adaptation. In the rest Softly tried to keep the main storyline and very carefully treated in literature. Endless questions, suspicions, fragments of memories, embedded in the picture is black-and-white flashes, forcing the viewer to wrestle with, who on actually surviving heroine — Up or Mi. Here would like to say a few words about the game young Actresses, the performers of the main roles, Tuppence Middleton and Alexandra roach. They played their roles very well, but not surprised. Perhaps because the atmosphere of the 60's. this is quite unusual and causing a couple of girls associated a very contradictory and complex relationships, would look more appropriate in the modern scenery all looks kind of corny. On my opinion, roach (To) is clearly not enough specificity, bitchiness, some internal force or protest if you want, it is the same pushed her on such a cruel step — love hate, as you know... On the background of the game Middleton (Mi) looks more convincing.

By the way, the final picture is not corresponds to the end of the book that to the end keeps the intrigue. Especially liked the last scene of the movie the heroine, after long and painful soul-searching comes in sea to swim. I think if someone the audience for the time was still doubt "XY XY", then they have vanished like the smoke.

From the moment I read the novel by Sebastian Japrisot "Trap for Cinderella," much time has passed. All I wanted to see the French film adaptation in 1965, but I am a film and unable to find. And during another fruitless search, I came across information about that Iain Softley took on the screen adaptation of the novel. Joy bounds now, after two years of waiting, the film finally released on screens (though only at British Isles).

Micky (Tuppence Middleton) — a photographer, she is active, bright and cheerful girl who lives in London. To (Alexandra roach) — quiet Bank employee in her life is little notable events. Accidental meeting friends from childhood forever change their life. Girls go to Villa in France, where they spent their childhood, but there is a tragedy. At the time of a terrible fire Miki receives significant burns and injuries in the result of which he loses his memory. She does not remember anything, not even his name. And Micky Lee she really?

Softly moved the time of action of 60's today and place in England France. However, the picture looks like when the action takes place in France, it seems that in the 60-s all and it would look same. In the movie changed some names and facts, but with small changes, in my opinion, the actions of the characters in some situations have become more logical than in the book. Perfectly shows the friendship of two girls growing into jealousy and envy, ending with scars and amnesia. I also very satisfied with the cast from the main characters to the secondary characters. Mickey and Until this movie such as I was presented in reading. In "Trap" nice music, what is very important for diving in the atmosphere of the film.

I recommend to all lovers of intricate stories and surprise endings. I hope in a short time the film comes to the Russian audience.
