"Solaris" Movie Review Essay & Film Analysis

ESSAY TOPICS:   film analysis movie review Solaris
Solaris', 1972, by Andrei Tarkovsky - a film adaptation of the novel by science fiction that was written not ignorant of Stanislaw Lem in the 1960th year. Actually, it should be noted that a major fraction of Fame Lema just brought this book, but the adaptation of its overriding product creator was not quite satisfied. While the explanation for this is, it is reasoned and logical, since to consider it from the point of view of the writer: Andrei Tarkovsky filmed is not a product of Stanislav inspiration, but rather a reunion of the primary ideas of the Polish writer with ideas of Fyodor Dostoevsky, which he has displayed through the letter in his immortal work 'Crime and Punishment '. And most importantly, with such judgments is difficult to argue after watching the movie
"Solaris" Tarkovsky -. A slow, rather boring in a variety of moments tape, which differs in many respects from the printed original. I do not want and will not represent every detail differences, as any film in the first place - an independent work of art. I would like to just touch on a couple of features that relate directly to the picture, but at the same time somehow come into contact with the book. So, for the sake of reducing the formation of pseudo-informative and scientific terms, Tarkovsky with Friedrich Gorenstein little 'redraw' the text of the original, greatly reducing this same reservoir but concentrating it, in fact, in the same time slot the tape, namely at the beginning. Thus some confusion books on all pages which in different batch volumes were 'scattered' theory, concepts and laws, was eliminated fairly elegant way, inherent genius Andrei Arsenijevic, who is clearly in his manner did not want to 'load' the audience with all sorts of concepts and facts printed creations, instead of focusing on his favorite subject of human nature. But this is not traced the best piece of tape, and it was previously affected, boredom me. Yes, this item is not rare for the films of Tarkovsky, but here it has been especially clear in view of the fact that the story itself is from a something illusory, something half-real. This is the story of human relationships where one of the characters in nature and man is not. But then what is it, since no living creature? And who is the man himself, who once cast off from himself sincerely human? On such existential matters narrative construction, which in periods as time designation of a particular subject in order to give the viewer switches to a themed twist, and becomes dull, boring and bezynformativnym in greater his constituents that Andrew Arsenijevic and not typical. .. that's why in this film, pay attention to it: it is there it is quite noticeable that one might even say, roughly in relation to the viewer
But does this affect the overall perception of 'Solaris' No.
'Solaris' perceived IME continuously to the key, which requires it to recognize producer. This unhurried movie that talks on interesting topics that raised more Lem. But here, it is in the film, thanks to some work, Andrei Tarkovsky was able to qualitatively weave thoughts of the book about the nature of human emotions, with his clearly personal thoughts of repentance before the family and, above all, his father. The fact that the director himself in his childhood was left without a male hand of a kindred, and possibly through the prism of this film, it is like Raskolnikov in Dostoevsky, repents of his egomania some. The film's protagonist, Chris (Donatas Banionis), long stays in La Sonnambula feelings and emotions, trying to find forgiveness not only in terms of the relationship with the family, but just people who dear to him. Renouncing the principles and selfish motives, the protagonist seeks forgiveness in Hari (Natalya Bondarchuk), that something is not something real, essential - only a projection of his memoirs, which he still nurtures a sense, first of all, guilt, that creates lust begging forgiveness. However, the essence presents itself, and ultimately understand the value of it is direct, present his own life takes precedence. The value of real moments appears in full light, which is like the light of stars from the sky is always a message from the past, why other desires of the hero can not be run, in spite of their strength ... Is that, again, again, refer to the full of secrets and the mysteries of the ocean of Solaris, which even gives the false images of reality, but brings true calm the soul, at least, protagonist picture
'Solaris' -. beautiful, entertaining his thoughts reel of film, which is replete with multiple symbols and metaphors, characteristic T arkovskomu. Here he gave himself fully at ease in addressing the viewer a variety of different patterns and why the film is quite complex to understand. But at the same time and immensely beautiful, though the special effects to any comparison with the "Space Odyssey" by Stanley Kubrick, for example, do not go, although a fantastic tape Americans at that time had already been four years, Tarkovsky obviously does not care about it, going to this genre to a completely different, so to say, hips. More philosophical, more multilevel and pretentious, but for the same reason and highly artistic. Water as an experience of something new and unusual to life in 'The Steamroller and the Violin', the water as the rescue in "Ivan's Childhood", water as a cleansing in 'Andrei Rublev' and water as an eternally dead and eternally living space creation, that is the enemy and the other here in 'Solaris' - Andrei Tarkovsky uses not only the your favorite image as a way of communication and the interaction with the audience, just here the metaphor masters especially clearly in view masks the very planet on which the action takes place. Through everyday for himself, for his films, the things the director represents the essence of man as a being that is always first and foremost sees evil, not even trying to see the good. Not realizing that the space of the universe - not a conglomerate of our language, people can not connect with any other race, can not be brought before other creatures. This reflection, which lie on the surface of the picture, and who are already providing with interest to watch it and watch the development of actions, and why it would be desirable to approve that this tape - something with which should be familiar to the person who does not matter at what level interacts with film most importantly, he gets pleasure from it that this film gives full with unusual for everyday life, the direction of the brain.
