KinoFresher - big disappointment
• KinoFresher - big disappointment
Oh, those American movies about the company and their childhood friends reunited: seemingly filmed a lot of them, but each time a new scanned film evokes a feeling of mild nostalgia. Basically, what is happening on the screen to call very much enjoyable it is impossible, because such stories inevitably entail a demonstration of resentment and frustration.
In the film, Lawrence Kasdan "big disappointment" (Big Chill) 1983 seven fellow classmates at the University of Michigan are going to the funeral of eight - Alex, committed suicide at an unknown reason. The late was a girl named Chloe (Meg Tilly) - young and strange, and even it is not known why Alex decided on that. Almost all the characters succeed in professional terms, but in his personal life, as it often happens, many of them are not going smoothly - just reason to speculate, to try to correct old mistakes and remember the past.
The couple Sarah and Gerold Cooper (Glenn Close and Kevin Kline) first learned about Alex's suicide, which he committed in their guest house. Sam (Tom Berenger) - the star of the TV screen, it has long been in love with a married housewife Karen (JoBeth Williams). Wheeler-journalist Michael (Jeff Goldblum) is looking for ways to start their own business, Meg (Mary Kay Place) - a lawyer in real estate - is not married and dreams of children, and Nick (William Hurt) - former radio host and a Vietnam veteran.
The film, unlike many other films of the genre, "a meeting of old friends," as has been said, is not cheery - it is due to the reason that the meeting itself. All remember Alex, what he expected from life, Sarah suffers because once met him, but the worst thing - everyone understands that as a friend and a man Alex died for all of them for a long time, as, probably, and they to each other. All live in different states, each has its own worries and problems, but everything in life happened not quite the way we would like. As corny as it sounds, is not it usually the case.
to shoot the film in the same way as some other bands, in which the characters are going after years of oblivion: they lived for a few days together, to communicating, they were in their images. And in the role of the deceased Alex starred Kevin Costner, all scenes with the participation of which, however, was cut.
The soundtrack directed by Lawrence Kasdan (incidentally, the writer of the fifth and sixth episodes of "Star Wars" and the movie "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark") collected from hits of the sixties, that after the film began to turn all radios. Based on the same plot of personal experiences Kezdana.
More, perhaps, nothing to add. For those who love melancholic films of the eighties, in addition to the meetings of old friends, it is a must to view.
