Is Retirement Coaching for You?
Culture Thursdays: Beginning today, a wide strip rolling "Love in the City - 2" was a good opportunity to talk about another love affair, be very short.
So, this time, our trio departed from the great trip in the pure love going to Thailand - to daddy dentist that happened that kind minioligarhom-epicurean. Along the way they are I stop at a Buddhist monastery, performing for wild Thais as a center of family planning - any barren couple, applied to the handle of Gdan'sk pagan idol sostrogaet desired offspring in the first night. Our friends in the overall fit for some reason, too, climbed to ensure the fertility of his own loins, and then, of course, immediately begin to suffer a severe form of age-old male phobia "and suddenly she flies!".
As a result of death razobizhennye companion slams the door back to Moscow and appeared lyso-orange Valentin Bedrosovich Bodhisattva announces its highest will - now who had, and he ate only the first offspring obzavedetsya dragged her friend to the bed and the other two will take a pause in the reproduction of ten years.
You like, ok? Not sick yet? Me neither.
No, really, to my genuine surprise, the domestic comedy film "Love in the City - 2", to watch where I brought it oppressive professional Fate, was not something that would be good - you will be here with such a good script! - But tolerable. Went not a falcon, but not a stake. Here at least, all frankly - cheesy teen comedy with the obligatory recent tit-pisechnoy issues, which the filmmakers usually announce, using a steady euphemism "We wanted to make a romantic comedy about love." From the host of such domestic kinourodtsev second "Love ..." distinguished except some professional (curtsey in the direction of American education - the director Marius Weisberg graduated from California's film school), and even some elusive substance.
It is best to grasp it and made the same Weisberg, in an interview who said something like --
say, all Russia's commercial film directors removed from the face of chronic ulcer during the exacerbation, and yet his film to love.
Love truly, then he received lively and popular. Charges of the first tape "Love in the City" held at the box very well, and, actually, and this has ensured the franchise, his words like a bear this out.
And then I thought. The film, then, by and large, built from start to finish, from the name to the title-cut of proven templates. Nothing new - I do not say "important" - it does not and can not be, it's just another blocked already not sparkling variety of Hollywood romkomov. Design, collected from a model set of spare parts.
And I am ready to believe that the director really liked this golem, although only he knows what he is worth it.
But his work is such that he eventually got paid for it. But why these prefabricated panel-audience films like?
And here it is harder to answer.
But it seems to me important. Note - at the beginning of zero for success (commercial included) sought a matter of domestic films. But every one of these films were, firstly, the "internal use" solely about us and for us, and secondly - tried to speak about serious things. Remember - "Brat-2", "Antikiller", "oligarch", rolling the phenomenon of "Boomer", but the same "Watch", in the end. It is with such films and launched the notorious "revival of the national cinema."
And in what it ultimately led?
We take a list of commercially successful films of last year. Who do we have at least a conditional degree paid off at the box office? "Love-Carrot 2", "Vacation strict regime," "The Bride at any price", "Love in the City," "The Best Movie 2" on the brink - "The Taming of the Shrew. All. Eloquent list, is not it?
All who believe in encouraging trend "to talk about their importance and" collapsed with a crash.
It seems the same "King," grossed a third of the budget, and last week has earned the only remaining screen exactly 150 rubles.
And the thing is, in my opinion, is not that the audience we have retarded and not wanting to "soul work". Unfortunately, very quickly became clear that our filmmakers simply tell us nothing. Just nothing, you know? They can only simulate profundity and simulate emotions. All of these "kings", "dudes" and "Inhabited Island" - exactly the same collected with a cool head soulless golems that "Love in the big city." The difference is only in one - a silly comedy does not require the viewer nothing but money for the ticket, the same few notes, they compete more on your empathy. People on the most part not very clever, but now they smell wonderful.
And they somehow did not really like the situation when they climb, not only in my pocket, but in the soul, giggling with his fist over Fryer eared.
Comrades, filmmakers, do not blame the domestic audience! He honestly and fairly long tried to love. But, over and over again in response to receiving only an imitation of feelings, finally despaired, and prefer honest contractual relationship. I'm money, you give me - a half hour if not fun, but fun. Came, ïîðæàë came out, I forgot - parted mutually satisfied. Under this scheme, every now and will be built - look at the plans of almost all of our film companies, there are entirely romkomy.
All right, all right. That's only a name similar to the short-lived or non-committal attitude usually very discordant.
