Rarely off the detectives, and be found among these good — is a great success. This film is like to the given number.

The film was shot in the style of Agatha Christie. Up to the very end, we lead the maze versions, allowing you to determine how all was really in the next moment to change your assumption. The maze on so confused that the answer to the last moments of the film, which is extremely rare to find in modern cinema. The picture makes us don't just watch, but and to think with the main character, empathize with him, feel it that he is.

It is also worth noting the work of the operator, decorators and costumers. The atmosphere of postwar England passed just fine, the viewer is completely immersed in the period of time.

Conclusion: the Film will be very "tasty" for lovers of mystery stories of the old model, where the head have to not work in order for the walls to break, and to think.

If Sherlock Holmes is associated with the London, miss Marple — with the English province, inspector Rebus, the investigation leads to the Edinburgh, then inspector Morse is inseparable from the University town of Oxford. What to say: contemporary film adaptation of the British detective has added to the ranks of fans of Arthur Conan Doyle and other British writers crime novel. Some innovations in the creatively recycled investigations of crimes has propelled the popularity of modernized image of the same Sherlock is up to unprecedented heights. Fans to carry bag with a volume of the detective stories excitedly began to argue about a new interpretation of classical works, divided into the most ardent opponents and loyal fans of the modern adaptations of British detective, but as there may be, is to admit one thing: this movie has entered in fashion. Entered so that the fans began to demand the next portion of the adventure of English detectives. Benedict Cumberbatch was intrigued by the new antics of Holmes, but gave way to the fifth power, and he is not in a hurry to get back to Baker street. Chunky Belgian with a neat mustache Hercule Poirot is already tired of thirteen years is the body of David Suchet, a new and young yet themselves not found, although seeks to this.

If American TV rules psychos, killers, drug lords, bikers, and the bootleggers, the UK famous movies about Abbey energetic, enterprising old lady with the eternally pursed lips. But if list add detective story, such generosity is not give up on any connoisseurs of vintage TV series or fans of the crime genre. So who will give the fresh blood of moviegoers, eager to witness the etude in crimson tones to plain English? The answer is simple: Dexter. Colin Dexter. As was not only the Creator of Hannibal Lecter conspired to tell about the ascent of his literary hero. The idea is to tell you how does the establishment of the inspector Morse of the same series, not allowed to sleep and its creators. The TV series "Inspector Morse", to which made the once hand he Danny Boyle, have long acquired a cult status among myself home. But untouched niche: the young years of the famous detective. And here, finally, was thrown a touchstone in the TV movie endeavour, subsequently served as a pilot of a new toothy television series, known from under the name of "Young Morse".

Raindrops drumming on the windshield of the car, wading in the bumpy forest road. "Wipers" is not handle it, but through the jet falling from heaven water the driver is able to see the female silhouette among the trees. Man with a camera waiting for someone to the door of the mansion. Two man playing game of backgammon. As connected all these people? Dark brown with high cheekbones and sparse sideburns, a face reminiscent of the hero of Paul Bettany of"a beautiful mind" comes to service in police station in Oxford immediately gets into the investigative team. On the yard in 1965. England grieves in connection with death of Winston Churchill, but campus shaken by another event: fifteen-year-old student of one of the colleges found dead. Awkward Oxford "nerd" to present his version of events, but he quickly find opponents, hung on juice the label of arrogant and insolent wiseacre. In a result of the growing displeasure of the authorities, the intellectual snob removed from business and new crimes continue to excite the neighborhood.

Getting rid of the burden of the past and start a new plot turn, the creators of "Inspector Morse" gracefully and energetically rebuilt not only when the time of action, but and approach the process of investigation, demonstrating a fresh and original take on the legend of the British police. Yes, it is same the person, let and younger thirty years old, but in fact — this is a new character. The film "endeavour" revealed to the world a vivid, memorable character, and although this guy is still not adept in matters of investigation, to land in the Shoe it not too easy. Of course, in the plot of the film lies unsolved mystery: the locked room and about the keys will fail. Viewers not hurry up with conclusions: it is visionary creators will take on the wrong direction in the first place. Of course, the detective has developed in the classic shape it is in Britain and, probably, it would be a sin the British time from the time is not return to criminal subject. Albion and indeed the promised land for detectives seeking to uncover the purely English murder. The writers do not began to go on a beaten path: new times demand that the locked room had several exits, but not only — to look for the room you need in a whole block of similar houses. So that the murder of the English — Yes, but too not that clean.

However, outside Oxford appears even leisurely — today without the steady stream of buses and not English hurrying pedestrians. Plates in the gramophone, a gleaming metal "Jaguar", mug of cider in the student pub, rooms with the cabinets, stuffed to the brim with books with rich roots, houses of brown brick with tiled roofs, among them solemnly exalted by divine fingers spires of Oxford University. And of course, the obligatory English five-o-clock — five o'clock tea. The film does not out the limits of the campus, but not mean we are expecting a tough and a sad sight. It turns out that the concentration of defects — not only countries with a low standard of living. Highbrow society keeps the walls of their houses with manicured gardens a lot of secrets. Even though the characters and drink traditional tea and walk along the walls of the prestigious University, we learn that in prudish England can happen even those horrors. Here the entourage of the 60's is not just decorative frame actions, and creates a new meaning, exposing the company with all the complexes, neuroses, fears, vices and other nefarious things behind the part of court ceremonies and dinner parties.

Itself himself plot outline follows the genre — exemplary of the classic detective. So, here is important details, edging, artsy curls. As whatever was confusing things, disclose miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, all well, the formula we have long been known. The creators of the endeavour has improved this formula, adding ingredients that are used in modern the kitchen, with the taste of food is not changed, here's the finish became more spicy and memorable. It also interesting to see how the hero is leading the investigation, not having to the aid of a computer, mobile communication and other modern means, without which, alas, is impossible now to build the plot of any detective. Morse uses a file Cabinet in the truest sense of the word, and will not send the request at the Internet, it calls from the red telephone booths, and lacks the smartphone from his coat the graceful movement, goes on a black "Jaguar" in the narrow streets and not to drive on the highways to  Ferrari. The strength of this film is not the abundance of blood on the screen constant voltage waiting for the next cruel antics of crazed perverts and maniacs, not in overwhelming sometimes frame the grimaces of madness. The strength of her in the intellectual puzzle of a crossword puzzle by solving which we know only the initial letter of the word, lifts the veil of secrecy. And to think the keys have been to ourselves, but they are worth it.
