"Obsession" Movie Review Essay & Film Analysis

At first glance, the plot is simple. Even primitive. Matthew - a successful young financier. The other day - the wedding with sister Rebecca his boss. Even I bought the ring already. And now he is sitting in the restaurant with his bride at a meeting with business partners. Today, on the night he flies to China. This trip is very important for his career. But fate, as always, makes its own adjustments. Matthew goes to call in the machine - and in the next booth to hear the familiar voice. Is it Lisa? His beloved, who gone to his head, and had disappeared two years ago ..
stranger - or znakomka - slipping out of the restaurant, and follow her in front of the bride, Matthew is not solved. However, Matthew planted on the plane and go home, Rebecca does not know that in any China Matthew does not fly. Calling partners and said he was ill and will arrive later, he remains in the city. Forgetting everything, possessed the passion and intention in whatever was to find Lisa, Matthew, and does not imply that two years ago was the victim of virtuosic intrigue, and even now, every detail in it is provided with diabolical precision ...
general -That 'obsession' - a remake of the French 'Flats' with Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci in the lead roles. 'Apartment', in turn, is a remake of 'Obsession', taken already in the distant 1960th year. But do not compare these films. At least the name, we can conclude - they are different. The plot of 'Apartments' revolves around Lisa's apartment, 'Obsession' is this line - not the most important. And Matthew is far more obsessed with Lisa than Max in the French version. If there is love -. It is a passion
I do not like movies about love. Except, of course, 'The English Patient' (but they love - just one of the subplots) and 'Titanic' (show me one girl who watched 'Titanic' and crying at the end). But this film - one of my favorites. Not least because he stunningly filmed. Reception when the same effect is shown several times on behalf of the different characters, and only the last time when the picture is formed into a unified whole, we understand what happened in reality, it does not allow the viewer to relax. And very soon we realize that the story something quite different than it seemed at first glance ...
Hartnett, of course, ruled a ball. Then Diane Kruger has not played any 'Troy' or in 'National Treasure', and, consequently, the other stars in the film were not observed. It is he who takes the lion's share of screen time, and does it well. Matthew Lillard, it seems to me, in his repertoire: joker-joker and a loser. Very sorry for him in love and deluded hero. Kruger is also worthy of praise. But Rose Byrne - who's really happy. Her - believe. Just believe, that's all. Despite the fact that I was once again watching a movie - and once again feel a vague desire to strangle her character Alex ...
particular fad - soundtrack. In addition to good music written directly to the film composer Cliff Martinez, we see an excellent collection of songs - from Maybe Tomorrow Stereophonics group at the very beginning to the very remarkable The Scientist by Coldplay, for which we see the last frame. In this song just fell in love.
In addition, the film is simply beautiful. This particular concept and a special ability - remove the frame so that the breath away and I wanted to pause to admire them. Shooting exceptionally well, it attracts beautiful angles - and especially the music. And it is clear that no music written for filming - and filmed the music. As a result, when the screen you see a bright sunny day, when the light plays Snowflakes and confused in the golden hair Diane Kruger on wonderful background music - a real feel delight
only scene puncture -. Mobile phones. Why heroes, rather than call each other's cell and found, through calls up machines? But here it is worth remembering that, initially, the action took place in the 60s, where mobile phones have not yet made a strategic decision to invent. And because - close our eyes to this little miscalculation and forget about my words
And besides, why this film which I especially appreciate -. That's life. It - the cruel reality. Female friendship for centuries is designed so that your friend today with the most cordial smile to listen to your secrets, tomorrow you plunge a knife into the back of two fingers below the left shoulder blade. In this I am, alas, once again convinced by personal experience ... In general, the moral: girlfriends about love in detail to tell it is not necessary. And keep them away to the object of his passion - minuy us
P.S.! Finalochka at the airport made gorgeous. And let the main characters - just two young people in this big world, but the more valuable that they were able to find each other among billions of others ...
