Indeed, black and white ribbons beginning of the century is still staggering kinomanov all over the world. Charlie Chaplin was never unique and the best comic of all time. The best picture of the vampire still consider В«NosferatuВ» Friedrich Murnau. В«MetropolisВ» Fritz Lang looks at one go. But on the black-and-white В«Sobachem HeartВ» or В«Andrew RubleveВ» and say no. It is not the color of salt, as neither of us would have tried to convince this colorful American blockbusters or juicy Asian paintings. On the contrary, a strict black and white palette is attached to any film attacked the very mysterious and charming В«Art hausnostiВ», while the color, makes the movie a little more close to a wide audience and further from the pure art.
Perhaps that is why В«MangaВ» Peter Hazizova and В«RaginВ» Kirill Serebrennikov, as shown in the film festival В«Russian Art HouseВ», are not as bold experiments of talented innovators, but rather, increasingly like the movies, which could well go to the cinema the country on equal terms with В«War of WorldsВ» and other В«married SmithВ», if the owners of cinemas would be a bit bold and patriotic.
For those who consider themselves to be young
Pochitateley comics, manga in our country is not much. Slightly more people, who at least once in the life of watching anime and left them quite satisfied. But all these rare in our region who appreciate Japanese culture combines advanced two things. First, they are usually young, and secondly, they are more aware of other fashion trends and directions: in music, and movies, and even in literature. It is for these В«young - those who feel youngВ» Peter Hazizov and withdrew his erotic black comedy.
It's actually very difficult to describe in one word of this film genre. It equally well and come to terms В«melodramaВ» or В«ThrillerВ».
Here intertwined and fantasy and honest, sometimes the hard realism.
are configured in a serious manner, subtly transmitted atmosphere loneliness of human megalopolis replaced without transitions purely situational hohmami typical sitcom. It unites the whole cocktail of unusually high quality for the domestic film picture (more than half of the film has been specially processed on a computer) and some neulovimaya klipovaya aesthetics. You will not find in the В«MangaВ» the same comic in its pure form, the Japanese themselves, the picture is almost never involved in the plot and characters of the type of cult Seylor Alukarda moon or you will not meet. Many of the young В«Russian JapaneseВ» out of the cinema razocharovanno pozhimaya shoulders, and not razglyadev, not realizing why the film was given just a name. And the creators are not aims to satisfy their demanding tastes. They play, to experiment, using modern techniques of comics and cartoons in kinokartine. В«In addition, I am very zabavlyaet literal translation of characters that denoteВ« manga В». В«ManВ» - the picture. В«GaВ» - as a hit. I think - this is about our cinema В»- frankly acknowledged Hazizov. This picture is clean zaunyvnogo denied moralizing, it is not a particularly delicate psychologism. But in abundance brought delight to the eyes and ears. A great number of visual as a whole, stylish interiors, beautiful (young!) Actors, high-quality special effects, it is unimaginable flying camera and of course the soundtrack.
AMBIENT, DUB, ELECTRO and other fashionable styles now fully manifested itself, creating the right mood, and preserving the special rhythm of the film.
In short, the meeting В«to odezhkeВ» movie bears all the hundred, but with regard to wire В«in mindВ» ...
Plot famously twisted naive and childish at the same time. There are three people whose fate prichudlivym intertwined. This is a young Kiwi oboltus (Jaroslav Zhalnin) capable in moments of danger becomes invisible, vulnerability, and at the same time flawed model Alice (Vasilisa Petina) and an unclear What refleksiruyuschy esthete Aliq (Peter Hazizov personally). One evening Kiwi vyglyadyvaet from the window of his house and saw the delicious beauty advertising shield, immediately falls in love with the memory. One evening, when business mother Alice ukatila somewhere once again for a couple of days, it is in the box probralsya an unknown man in motorcycle helmets, which does not need the money and property. One evening in a car to Alik podsela totally insane girl, which he willy-nilly had to bring to his home. Here's to you and tie. At first glance, quite unrelated to each other stories gradually spletayutsya together, although up to the finals and do not become something solid. It creates the impression that the authors originally conceived to remove three REALLY different stories, but at the last moment everything changed slightly carelessly scrambled to connect already footage material. Full of scenes that В«provisayutВ» and did not have a meaning, and logical load. The viewer suffers questions В«And what is invisible Kiwi?В» And В«Who is Alice choose something in the end?В», And the responses to them was not and will not be. Even polukriminalny friend Alika Brabus (Andrei Balashov), apparently the dog at any sevshy there disassembly, divorce and razrulivaniyu situations have not been able to make in the plot clear clarity. He simply took and drove away, not giving the history of the three urban dreamers attention. A final and do everything blurs the boundaries between sleep and yavyu, fantasy and reality, and this remains a sense of resentment, but at the same time, and a pleasant surprise.
Actors play that they should play. Zhalnin - young, bezbashenny that hides ranimuyu soul for napusknoy brutality. Petina - dumb as a cork, it is not capable of understanding or in itself, nor in the life of plain girl. Elena Medvedev, fulfilling the role of mother Alice, a typical self-confident business vumen, which has enough time on the case and the image, but not enough for her daughter. Kiwi's friend, played by Philippe Osadchuk - rustic, good values of a new generation of media. There are only the author of the picture that looks like something a young, fashionable, Russian Alena Woody and Balashov, played В«bratkaВ» so perfectly and not karikaturno that his hero looks very good, despite some of its irrelevance.
No, В«MangouВ» can not be described as a bright stupid dummy, very much in the thin observation ironic reference to the lives of modern youth. Having seen this movie, smiled his stupidity and pozhalev of its own blunders and mistakes, tineydzhery and really learn about themselves in images В«invisible manВ» Kiwi and В«girl coversВ» Alice. But the film is not social. In В«MangaВ» is lazy reasoning zazhatogo intellectual Alika (the В«safe dose of fearВ» or animals В«without any frustratsyВ»), but the whole philosophy is sketchy and mimoletna. The film does not pretend to understand the depths of consciousness and does not give the viewer responses to recent questions. And is it possible to claim something edakogo from comedy? Even В«Art hausnoyВ»?
This is a beautiful film. This is a good movie. Absolutely not napryagayuschee and is a positive. Japanese manga and drawn otsnyataya Russian В«MangaВ» - this is certainly not the same, but both devilishly stylish, fashionable and just a hell for those who are В«young or feels youngВ».
Exodus doctor Ragina
After viewing pictures В«RaginВ» it seems that the film was made not on grounds of specific novel В«The Chamber number 6В», but rather on the grounds of all Chekhov as a whole. What is in this regard, the picture is akin to В«unfinished piece for mechanical pianoВ». He shot on the original script, written by playwright Michael Ugarovym with the participation of Dmitry Zverkova and the producer. The scenes, characters or scenes from a variety of short stories of Anton Pavlovich, and scattered here and there. And so, all well and good to fit just divu daeshsya. And almost impossible to separate the idea classics, from the ideas of people to adapt it works under the requirements of the cinema, but the most important thing that does not want to do. There is no point pick inconsistencies with the original, because the spirit of the times and chehovskoe vision actually transferred creators В«RaginaВ» as it is impossible to precisely and accurately. History was a whole, strong and, alas, so sad and despair.
Russia, the beginning of the twentieth century, a small provincial town. Dr. Andrew E. Ragin (Alexei Guskov) serves as the main doctor in county hospital. He nemolod, alone, nelyudim, nelyubim and likes to read at night, interrupting only to have a beer or a glass of vodka. And once he popadaetsya curious medical report: trendy Viennese psychiatrist Gimmelsdorf (Julian Veygend) demonstrates his method of treatment of psychosis. It is a special approach to the insane in which the doctor himself if included in the state of insanity, the laws of the world takes a patient and then with him out of the В«river nonsenseВ», denying delusion umalishennogo clash with reality. Picture in the Vienna clinic stand the sight of Russian doctor. For the first time, it seemed to him that he was passionate about his profession. Therefore Ragin soon decide to apply the methods of doctor Gimmelsdorfa in the hospital.
To the great misfortune Andrew ГҐГ†Г‰ГЌГЏГ—Г‰ГћГЃ each of his attempts to heal the sick through the European technique suffers a complete collapse.
Even one Austrian, one repeating the experience of the treatment of women suffering from an imaginary gada, zasevshego in the womb, Ragin did not seek to have, but the patient baba bitterly exclaims: В«No. There is nothing left of me. One shit! В»Mad, prikinuvshegosya dead, Andrew Efimych morit hunger becauseВ« the dead do not eat В». He oret, dribble, dergaetsya, but not willing to go out of his unconscious state. Attempting to seduce four decades В«boyВ» burly nurse Saney (Zoya Buriak) looks funny, but also does not give the desired result. When to limit the application of Austrian methodology Ragin does go on all four sides of an adequate number of the inhabitants of the House of 6 Gromov (Alexander Galibin), who suffers В«onlyВ» from delusions of persecution. But he is not going away. And it is not healed. A hospital in the snake polzut rumors sumasshestvii of the doctor who is not engaged in anything more than immersion in a foreign delirium. Yes, and local authorities much more interested in the young and promising Dr. Eugene Feodorovich Hobotove (Dmitry Mulyar), prefer to В«treatВ» sick threats and a wild В«rotationally punitiveВ» machine Rash.
film is not for nothing is called В«RaginВ», rather than В«Chamber of number 6В». This picture is not the fate of the sick, and not even on the patient in Russia. Of course, these topics are covered, the main issue of this work becomes В«Why do with Andrew Efimycha nothing goes?В». What is the reason that wild injustice when a person sincerely wants to help people in the dark brodyaschim own chimeras, as a result of himself immersed in the sweet besplotnye moroki? And so whether it is good Ragin, or he (the habit of all Russian intellectuals) can only talk, but can not plainly do nothing? Perhaps his problem is that, and thought that he had his little, but in their place among strangers read excerpts from the book, once he did not see the focus of many stupidity of their actions (prischemit door finger that is something to prove psihu, which lechish, but what?) and whether it's true, the number he neugoden neither officials nor the ordinary workers and the hospital even mad Gromov able to spread his love of grain doubt? And it can cause even the universal ruin, the indifference, a Russian provincial banality, finally? Many questions, but none of them do not have a clear and explicit answer. Just like Chekhov. Ragin still makes his choice, and remains (dies?) Happy passing alternately all forms of madness of their patients. His soul is hidden from the bustle of life is somewhere in the distant Vienna Opera, the buffet, where there are so many delicious and no cake. The body and the cause of his abandoned and left, but the payoff is for schizophrenic paradise, this extreme form of metaphysical outcome. But then we, the audience, because we do not want to ward number 6, in spite of the fact that В«even to drink, though not to drink the same thing to dieВ»! Or maybe ...
one word - В«Madness this very ordinary person - there is a fee for our historyВ».
course, affected by the fact that many of the people who worked on the painting, the theater people rather than the movie, but it merely adds to the film atmospheric and does not cause rejection. All the actors on the height, none played little role. Everything, absolutely everything played so well, obviously - no Topotuna, guard Nikitki or opera stars Raisky picture would lose a lot. Honestly, I was struck by Guskov, which had previously been known only to me on the same plane roles of heroes and villains. In В«RagineВ» he was able to fully develop their potential serious theatrical actor. Provided and Alexander Galibin, accurately captured the image of В«speaker of psihushkiВ». And I can not voshititsya Zoey Buryak, diligence by a secondary character has become a symbol of something good, big, tender in Russia, and is able to give any prigolubit В«for PigletВ».
is also worth noting that the В«RaginВ» - this is the first experience of joint production in Russia and Austria.
The painting artists employed the two countries. The shooting took place in Yaroslavl, Pereslavl, St. Petersburg, as well as in Vienna.
This is very good screen classics, despite all the innovations and special treatments. Well, let all the characters except for the very Ragina, doctors Hobotova, Gromova, paramedic Sergei Sergeyevich, maids Daryushki crazy tailor Moyseyki and guard Nikitki, invented scenario, even if action moved from 1892 to 1904, even rethink and greatly supplemented by various developments history of life itself Ragina. The main idea remained. And its goal (dostuchatsya to the modern viewer) is making a movie. Of course, this picture clearly can be described as standing, excellent film.
