In terms of genre, this film is closest to a psychological thriller. There is incredible tension in almost every scene - almost the whole film you will almost physically feel the clouds gathering over the main character's head. Or is it in his head? You will figure it out as the narrative progresses.
The film will be most interesting to admirers of Dostoevsky's work, as it is a symbolic adaptation of Crime and Punishment. The names of the main characters do not coincide, does not match the time and place of the action, but everything in the film bears the imprint of the philosophy of Dostoyevsky.
The main thing is to look closely. An ordinary-looking shot may hide several "Easter eggs" which relate both to the film's plot and Fyodor Mikhailovich's works. In the end, the film draws us to the same conclusion as the novel, but in a symbolic form. The play of actors convincingly conveys the mood and atmosphere of the book, what stands alone Christian Bale, who became almost a skeleton. In fact, this movie is the best adaptation of Dostoevsky I've ever seen, even if it's done in a symbolic way.
All students should definitely watch it :). This movie will also appeal to people who want to think and to people who like quality suspense. Those who watch films for the action, and people who generally like easy and unstressful movies don't need to worry, though for the sake of curiosity and to broaden their cinematic horizons it is better to watch it.
For now I take my leave.
P.S. Who watched it. Write about what characters/passionate note :). nobody is forgotten. nothing is forgotten., typist, movie, cinema Write a comment Total comments: 2
