Religious and philosophical film is a parable about that the don't ask, but is only the beginning, how to throat a lump and soul envelops immense melancholy..

This movie just watch that moment when you think those who do this infinite Universe. Notice it is your disappearance? Born to do you some assigned to you a purpose or your life's not mean? Whether you go through? Is there It or this is just a hoax? Whether to believe Him reckless? True His covenants? What is our life - the way which we wander in the dark, the darkness of anger, greed and cruelty, or way to the end of which will see the light of Hope just passing through the trials of life bravely and without hesitation in the that He gives us the Grace?

The way of Grace or the Path of Nonresistance: what you.

This film will suit everyone, but not any time, and the moment you know what really ready to plunge in the abyss of the Unknown and the beyond.

In truth, when the movie Terrence Malick (the time I unknown filmmaker) "the Tree of life" became the winner of the Palme d'or at the Cannes film festival last, I take it an event quite negatively, since initially predicted the top prize is "Melancholy" by Lars von Trier. In the time I caught in the decision of the jury of the Cannes film festival a manifestation of extreme weakness of will and desires to serve their American counterparts. Events that gave rise to doubt in objectivity of the jury all know so I won't sound. I realize judge the film only after its viewing, but after the above event the "Tree of life" for me has become a symbol of the impiety of the film; the defeat of the "Melancholy" much spoiled my attitude as the film festival and his conqueror. For a long time I simply ignored this movie, but curiosity still took to the best of me. I decided to view. And here my first acquaintance with the work of Terrence Malick took place, and I'm ready to share my impressions.

I confess: I'm no exaggeration, was gone is stunned! Now I realize a Terrence Malick movie at earned a Golden palm, and blame themselves for the bias is that I felt it. I would put a monument to the Director only one an attempt to Express in a film the entire complexity the depth of the relationship of nature, man and God. The work of the Malik can be compared with an attempt to know the structure of the entire universe. You could even say that  the"Tree of life" — this is not all the universe is preserved in a 2-hour tape, in the view of Malik. However, as I thought the movie was somewhat not proven, but hope this lack will be addressed in the 6-hour version that Malick promised to release in the near future.

In addition to the brilliant ideas of the "Tree of life" boasts the most beautiful terrestrial and cosmic landscapes and also great acting brad pitt (in this year, obviously played on his Oscar), Jessica Chastain and Sean Penn.

And how the result: "Tree of life" is a true masterwork, whose value is difficult to Express in the numeric rating, but if required by the rules of writing reviews,

After watching "Tree of life", which this year received the Golden palm in Cannes, I left in deep confusion.

Impressions three:

1. Very nice.

2. Very corny, and again.

3. Really boring.

Let's go order.

Visually the film is certainly very interesting. Beautiful nature, beautiful unexpected views, impressive space graphics, underwater photography... However, Terrence Malick's other would be a strange to expect, because its movies have always been famous for the beautiful picture. In  the"Tree of life" accompanied by a picture and well-chosen music. Not can say that it's "my" repertoire (Brahms, sour Cream and etc.), but still pick this is not necessary.

But the picture — it's just a picture. Beautiful pictures under melodious music we show on the discovery channel, and in documentaries from the BBC. What is in the movie is it?

The story?.. In the generally accepted sense of the word, there is no plot. Have a family — dad, mom, three sons. Some hint of the death of one of the sons 19 years. Conflict relations of family members, interspersed with idyllic scenes. There are grown-up son, who all remembers / living in itself again.

And the voice — the boy, mother, of the father, which says something profound and at the same time boring like, "the Love — this is important in life", "If God is cruel, then why he believe?", "In each of the us fight father and mother" and etc.

With each of these thoughts could be accepted if she was presented with "head" (in plain text over the frame), and was born in the head of the viewer in the result of understanding the artistic image. But a regret not going on. "Smart" voice and beautiful images are separate, and we have every time to make an effort to understand what we show not to which we speak truisms to which we show that family.

About the family. In principle, the film is clear: through the life of one family to show the life of man in General, which, as the world tree, grows through the millennia and seeks to something "on the other side of life". The task is akin to the one that suddenly decided Tarkovsky in the Mirror. He talked about their highly individual problems, shared their secret, and the result so that the audience asked him: where are you know about my life? how did you guess? Talking about the personal, Tarkovsky spoke about the space. Have Malik the result was neither nor CoE: it up to the example of one family to tell about all mankind, but this family is not made real, concrete, convex. Have it all lost to beautiful and the truisms, and a generalization like climbing out all the holes that life itself, which it tries to sing, it becomes dead, like comes in frame.

And here the huge gap that separates Malick from Tarkovsky (which, incidentally, is coming a good half of the movie). Sharkovshina in again have been fruitless, because copy external methods are not leads to the depth of the inside, on which Tarkovsky all build.

And in disbelief, I still because pokorova the audience, who came in your legitimate day off to look at brad pitt, ate this film on cheers! No sound for the entire movie! Before they, apparently, realized that they "join the high art".

However, two a phrase from the audience we hear.

When on the screen for about five minutes leaping dinosaurs, and then we have shown a meteorite falling into the ocean, vote for our back admiringly said: "Now the dinosaurs will die!".

And at the end of the session one of the spectators said to his companion: "Computer graphics is gorgeous! Just like from me."

I hope Andrew Arsenievich not turned into the coffin of the at these words. Too much honor it would be Terrence Malik.
