Upside Down

Very long time the two planets are attracted to each other, and on both planets people live, for each of the planets has its own gravity. On the top the world is wealth and prosperity. It created the Corporation, out of the depths of the second planet and instead of offering electricity unaffordable for the poor inhabitants of the planet lower price. The movement of people between the planets is tightly controlled. In the center of events between two people: she's a girl from a wealthy family from the upper world, he — a simple man from the lower world, and they love each other. And then there's the secret of bee pollen, which is produced simultaneously on both planets and has incredible properties.

Mysterious star system in the two of the planet, blatantly spit on the laws of physics, Einstein's theory and the inviolability of the universe in General, adjacent each friend. Life in them runs its course, and living in one world there is a place among the inhabitants of the other. Obviously, it eventually turned into a very interesting stage of development of the theory of elites, turning the top of the world in the glittering stronghold of the bourgeois aristocracy, and the bottom sinking in the smoke from factory chimneys and black oil rain. And so it happened one day that Adam of the lower world and Eden of the top loved each other, but as usually happens in such stories, they are not meant to be together and in a tragic case they lost each other it would seem forever. As time passed, the guy from the bottom of the world grew, the paint on his beloved bike already have long peeled off, but dreams time is not power and Adam kept hope...

In principle, more to talk about the plot of "Parallel worlds" is not necessary, in order not to drown this text pink nonsense is not less pink bees, in fact, the perpetrators of that it still gets its development. Speaking in the role the second feature of the trial of Juan Diego Solanas, having in its portfolio the prestigious award for the remarkable short film "the Man without a head" (it is an allusion to the marks), this film, besides totally inappropriate in this case, but irresistibly pop-up in memory "Beginning", is associated with "Changing the reality" George Nolfi — romantic melodrama under the mask is a fantastic material. But if the creation of a melodramatic Thriller based on the story by Philip K. dick all were quite reasonable, the emergence of visionary romance about a pure and naive love in the days when Directors used to compete in entertainment pretentiousness of their multimillion-dollar projects, does not look something that is unexpected, but rather geeky and from being automatically attracts attention.

Romantic stories, so as not to be treacherous now prekinuti booming, but something morally decaying modernity, have to hide behind something impudent in its frankness and from actual humor or to hang a couple of problems of different age characteristics. And in this regard, "Parallel worlds" almost prokidyvaya themselves gliding along the subtle vanilla the verge of falling into corny was absurd, but reliable balancing due to cultivated Solanesol in each frame conceptualism surreal landscape. An absurd world that is quite acceptable already because not trying to argue with the possibility of faith in the events in principle, forces the viewer to break his neck from the paradox of the coexistence of two worlds and that's what sometimes holds the interest of occurring. In the same time, a situation not associated with a clash of matters, trivial and full of conventions, because Salanoa not exist any obstacles for feelings justified/unjustified suspicion of human nature.

Sounds absolutely incredible, but out of chaos is not clear on the holding of fancy Solanos in the result is born albeit not order, but phenomenon. "Parallel worlds", being the film is more about him than about her acting the epitome of the sort of ephemeral Muse, whose constant and meaningful presence is not necessarily, be history of incredible world, which there are those laws which we wander in the gray mass of life. And let shaggy romanticism Jim Sturgess and blonde ethereal Kirsten dunst, hovering on the background of the lunar disk, create a fairy tale for persons of uncertain age, who are called "dreamers" in the vast Universe of the hearts of viewers there is little room for the creation of Solanas. And not because the dreamers now extinct as view and because "Parallel worlds" incredible for the real way of life, morally and too simple in its internal content. Few people believe them or admire the Frank naivete and belief in a good that has long been lost its meaning among the surrogate substitutes for love stories. Would be rather noticeable once the lights of the metropolis over the poor district of dirty blocks, the joke about the toilet and perhaps the most unusual on-screen dance in recent years. Solanos to flirt with tenderness forgets to convey to the viewer what a star may have each, it's not able to believe it.

Start with that movie I liked it. Interesting and unusual plot, funny beginning. And if the first half of the audience delved in the device of parallel worlds that look like a mirror image of each other, then began the usual love story with the winning the hearts of beautiful women. It was the conquest because of Eden and Adam spun again, because that it was a long time ago in childhood, she said, to unfortunately, due to injury forgotten.

It was fun to watch how people from different worlds to communicate. See each other from above downwards, transmit (for the most part throw or use special equipment, convenient for both parties) items at this breathe the same air and does not differ — is that look at some things under different angle. And another police car that had chased Adam reminded me of the Soviet penny. I suggested that the shooting took place in some Latvia or Lithuania and there are cars can go.

Pink bees, flying pancakes, huge and grim, the Corporation Transworld — the only place that connects two parallel worlds. Remember how the heroes escaped Pro woods, recalled the first part of "Twilight." Only here they are not just ran with insane speed, and jumped fluttered. And also a love scene (in the bounds of decency), when the lovers hovered in the arms of each other on weight.

I immediately realized one thing — the theme of seeking halves is relevant always and everywhere, even on other planets. Maybe this is one of the laws of life?

If Eden, as a young, met Adam, then after ten years Kirsten dunst looks natural. Otherwise, to my great regret, I would say the actress is a bit older. By the way, it would be nice if the male role was played by Tobey Maguire, was would be restored duet of two actors, which received worldwide acclaim as this happened with "Dear change" Kate Winslet and Leonardo Di at a news conference. Jim Sturgess a fine job with the role, remember it smile — permanent, when he saw his beloved. With the actor I know little, after watching got a list of the crew team, and surprised earlier I watched "One day" with his participation, but here's why it absolutely not learned.

Disappointed by the finale. He seemed too predictable, many details are lost. For example, as Eden appeared in the world of Adam when he not expect to see. Message of pregnancy, backed up by clarifying, "we will be the twins" was never topic — if the heroes finally come together, and the viewer saw a happy ending to what are the details? And generally, the technical side such a difficult process as a transition to world in the second part is lost, leaving room for love line. To fortunately, about us this was revealed to the main character in the beginning of the film. No cheating. Noteworthy is a new, original story, filming, special effects, and love line — just a Supplement to this large background.

From the first minutes of the soul of the tale came. Strong introduction, the launch titles really cute outlined. That tape removed in blue colors are very eye pleased. Atmospheric movie. All designed in the right character.

When it came to view not know that it starred Kirsten Duns and happy was it to see, suitable for her role. She has something unique. Wonderful, graced and without this wonderful tape.

The young man who performed the role of Adam in the age of reason, is very nice.

With regards to the notion, the story was surprised. First time encountered a story. Unusual, exciting, romantic, well rendered, well executed by the actors, delightfully crafted by the writers.

I had a nice time for viewing. Of love to transcend any obstacle. This is a tale of the heart, with a wonderful ending. A delightful tale of sincere feelings. Worth attention and high evaluation.
