"Alive": on the brink of life and death

September 21 2006

Premiere screening of the film director Alexander Veledinsky "Alive" went on quite expected sold out. Cinema "Pushkin" was packed to bursting, regardless of the weekday, Tuesday, and very expensive tickets. Before playing Veledinsky introduced viewers to all the actors and a few dozen crew encountered applause - as a kind of advance for not yet seen the film.

He apologized for the fact that in the premiere of the film contains profanity and has pledged that in the rolling version of these words will be changed. How unspeakably pleased as adherents of decency, quiet for the morality of citizens and lovers of nenormativa, lean back comfortably in anticipation of diving into the most, that neither is the depth of "the great and mighty."

In general, the expectations from the movie not been deceived. That I was not about nenormativ, which was not so much and I must say, quite to the point. Please forgive me zealots of morality, but to me, as someone well imagine the realities of war - it is difficult to imagine that got in serious trouble guys reconnaissance politely asked the head - it has not left their cover or evacuate? In such situations, dialogues are more than an energetic and extremely expressive words. From this perspective, the battle scenes look quite convincing and realistic.

Although not a film about the war and not even on the psychology of post-war syndrome. The film is about balancing between life and death - or rather, about a forty ordeal souls of fallen soldiers. On the eternal questions of life and death, love and betrayal. To my great joy, against all expectations of the director is not rolled into a detailed description of the "wrong side" of war and life at the front than the sins of the notorious "9 rota".

All these episodes are shown in a restrained, somewhat detached manner, then only white enhances confidence. Some, in my view, quite recognizable quotes from the "Brother-2" is quite appropriate and logical to lay the body of the story. The work of the fraternal duo Chadov produces such a good impression that at some point was tempted to cry out to the auditorium "Believe!".

And it is not just my opinion, since aftepati club "Alex Alco Hall" many came to the brothers and gave credit to the credibility they have created images.

Talked about the movie is hardly necessary, I will note one thing - the picture is certainly a success and will likely become a noticeable phenomenon in modern Russian cinema ...

Nikolai Nevsky.
