White Squall

On the brink between Life and Death is born of man's character. In the autumn of 1960 sailing Brigantine "Albatross" under the leadership of captain Christopher Sheldon went into the circumnavigation. It would be almost a cruise, if passed in calm weather. But the boys finished on Board the "Albatross," education at Ocean Academy, knew how deceptive likes to pretend to be the ocean. They knew that in a storm ocean ceases to be boundless: the heavy waves around a small boat in the desire to crush it, and wherever you look — everywhere but the wall, a huge wall of water. They knew that in a storm ocean ceases to be transparent: turbid mud and tries to shut your mouth forever, so you can find peace somewhere at the bottom of this terrible beast. They knew that in a storm ocean ceases to be quiet: for his roar is not audible even own voice, escaping from his chest with the last death rattle... Not all members of the crew of the "Albatross" was destined to stay alive...

"White squall," — amazing film, it is possible to watch many times, and he does not get tired of it because he's a real, honest, he about real men, about the courage, the dignity, of friendship and loyalty. He only awakens the best in people. These are the boys asking the questions, who I mean, why am I live? On the ship Albatross they are looking for answers, seeing the world: bad good. They are all completely different, at first they it is difficult to get along together, but later they become a real team, loyal friends. Each of them was able to open in something about what is not even suspected: Gil overcome the fear of heights, Dean able to pass the exam, Frank realized that it — not him father he has real friends.

Whether to say that every time I cry watching "White squall"? He is truly touching, truly care about you are truly worried about characters. Jeff bridges in the role of captain Sheldon just great (really sorry for this one), it became the embodiment of masculinity and also an example for all. In its severity, the Frank stiffness is, at first, something repulsive, but if you think about it, you look closely, you can see how he refers to these guys, for your team. Here is there is a real feeling, and not exposed to the gusts of emotion that can be easily mistaken for sincerity.

The whole film is permeated with emotion that not surprising, because in the role of the narrator is one of the guys. Each scene has its own special meaning, but the last scene in court — it is the apotheosis, as it's hard to convey what I feel, looking at these images. Emotions erupted characters and you that it is impossible to Express.

Of course, I failed to send and what I felt, but not afraid — everyone will perceive everything seen on its own.

"But very good drama." — I thought, when the screen only showed the titles and I heard a nice ear melody and Sting.

A film about sailors. About sailors. About the youths who decided to a bold move — join the territory of the sea. A film about how the brave captain, grown and brought up with water, decided to take to itself on the Board of young fellows, with whom you can share all the beauty of the sea and teach the real courage!

"Squall" struck emotional! And it was taken in real events! Imagine how it live... I difficult.

I love to watch movies about sea, the oceans, about the water... me that's interesting, because I myself horror afraid of the water. I 19, I still don't know how to swim!

"We always meet with their fears..."(C)

Perhaps this is why I hard to imagine how it is dangerous — to be a sailor! For me this is akin to something high and I tip my hat to these hardy people!

Put 10 10

P. S. For those who in the sea! For those who didn't chicken out and not hilarious quit.

The film is not bad, but nothing more. Nothing new for I opened. Although, honestly, looking at the name of the Director, and for the cast, I was expecting more.

The film tells about the difficult relationship between the captain and his crew — several young men. Together they went to a trip around the world. In everything is turned and how it ended — see for yourself. I can only say that the film is a lot of psychology, drama, interesting characters. Overcoming difficulties, young children turn into real men. However, will survive as not all.

Jeff bridges in the role of captain excellent. Perhaps he — plus the main picture. From the rest of the actors I would single out Ryan Phillippe. He was pleasantly surprised.

Well, otherwise nothing new to wait. Not the best film by Ridley Scott.
