We rarely meet death on the screen in the center of the story, many say that he did not meet.

No one, absolutely no one can imagine what will be the death of you in the form of Brad Pitt . After this try to say that you would not want to meet his end ... But if without jokes, Brad, who after roles in film Legends of the Fall, Seven and Interview with the Vampire was awarded the title of sex symbol, in each of these roles plays a deeply dramatic characters that and attract women. Here - he plays the real mystery and mystique. For comparison, at the beginning of the film shows the man, in whom I will dwell Death while he was still alive - he is the complete opposite of the image of Joe: open, cheerful, smiling. When it appears on the scene Joe Black - we marvel at the sudden change. He is silent, mysterious, and only does that look to you to stop, as if waiting. what are you going to say.

Anthony Hopkins - for the umpteenth time shows on the screen the image of a strong and confident person. Bill Parrish - a man who has achieved everything he has created a huge campaign and remain an honest man. That is why the death of as a conductor chose it. Bill caring and loving father wants the best for her beauty-daughters. He did not even particularly surprised when death suddenly appears on his doorstep - he subconsciously waiting for this ...

He also has a lot of debate going on with Joe, and although death is as old as the world, Bill Parrish, in many ways it looks smarter and better understand the world.

Claire Forlani -! Very sensual female form. Susan Parrish - Bill's favorite daughter, is evident from the very beginning of the film, when he wants her own true love, and then, when he invites her to dance. And then she meets Joe - there is no doubt that the actors met while. Stress and feelings between Joe and Susan could almost feel it.

course, minus the film, I think its duration -. 3:00 it's still too much to melodrama. But as I mentioned it is a feature film by Martin Brest - the duration of this helps us to better understand the motives of the characters, the reasons for their actions, and it all allows us to fully accept the final picture. Here he was very dramatic and really beautiful.
