November 16 2005

For Russian cinema screens there is a new American comedy, "My best lover." Initially it was positioned as a therapeutic romantic comedy. Aurally perceived overly pretentious. But, looking at the list of actors involved in the film, think about it - and may indeed all true. In the movie involved: the magnificent Meryl Streep and Uma Thurman cult. Worked on the movie producers Jennifer and Suzanne Todd, Mark Gordon.

In addition, the budget comedy made $ 58 million, the music - only time-tested classics ....

A plot of the following. 37-year-old beauty, careerists, Rafi (Uma Thurman) throws love th husband. Her life came to a standstill? Not so fast! Comes to the aid psychologist Lisa (Meryl Streep). She writes Rafi right medicine: immediate plunge into the world's love interest, the first dating and experiments!

Rafi meets a young artist from Brooklyn, Dave Bloomberg (Bryan Greenberg), who instantly in love with her. He reaches for an adult seeking love and marriage, but Rafi is not averse to flirt with a man younger than herself, who does not yet give up and lie to women as deftly as her ex-husband. The heroine Uma Thurman just wants to get away from the recent problems and experiences.

The question is whether Rafi and David to save his love, or they stand on opposite banks and between them unbridgeable chasm? ...

"This is a love story of Romeo and Juliet, with only one difference: Juliet 37 years, and Romeo - 23" - says Uma Thurman.

"My best lover" - a film about what happens when people first fall in love and then realize how difficult for them to be together. The viewer gets an opportunity to take a fresh look at the difficulties of the profession of a psychologist: 50-year-old Lisa is able to give a brilliant, effective advice to their patients, but not in a position to help to understand the feelings of his own son ", - said director Ben Younger.

Uma Thurman: "I love romantic comedies. After reading the script, I realized it was just what I need now. Touching, in some cases even the sad story is imbued subtle humor. I just wanted to play in this film full of funny jokes. "

One of the funniest episodes in the film are the dialogues Rafi and Lisa at the time of psychological treatments.

For the recognition of American critics (the film came out in the national rental 28 October), Meryl Streep once again confirmed his reputation superprofessionalnoy actress, comedienne and talent. Tape begins with its heroine's inner conflict - on the one hand it is a great psychologist who wants to help his patient, on the other hand, as a mother - to help his son.

"My character as it is between two fires: on the one hand - Lisa, a psychologist, it's her job and she returns to his profession, loves his patients and trust, on the other side - Lisa's mother, who herself faced with problems in relationship with his own son. She does not perceive it as a grown man ready for a serious relationship "- says Meryl Streep.

As regards the role of Uma Thurman, then it was originally claimed another golivudskaya Star - Sandra Bullock. But, she demanded, almost to radically change the scenario - Ben Younger on it went. He simply refused the services of "congenial" Sandra, and a couple of weeks before filming, replacing it with "criminal murderer Bill" Uma Thurman. And, I suppose not lost ....
