ESSAY TOPICS:   film analysis movie review Solaris
This is its Solaris. Solaris by Andrei Tarkovsky.
In 1960, Stanislaw Lem writes one of the greatest works of the twentieth century Solaris. In 1972, Andrei Tarkovsky filmed novel by Lem and Tarkovsky obzovet the fool and return to Poland.
I know what it was all over. Rewind to the beginning. These are memories of Chris or Solaris? Or Tarkovsky? I glance at the poster for the film, which shows the drooping face Donatas Banionis. It's really Chris or another mimoid, which will soon be absorbed by viscous ocean of Solaris? Trying to understand the world, standing outside our planet, we reserve the one unsolved problem that we still can not understand ourselves
plagued by questions and moments of epiphany.. Doubtful discoveries and hypotheses which have accumulated in a thick encyclopedias and works of the scientist who died decades ago. They are no longer useful. By pioneers and intrepid explorers Solyaristy regressed in their distant ancestors - gatherer of facts. Century struggle with the mystery of Solaris. Age of futile attempts to establish contact with a reasonable ocean planet orbiting two suns. Century enormous sacrifices, pay tribute to the silent altar Solaris.
Ocean Solaris does not want contact with us. Can you lend a hand, and the ocean hath ebbed from it - is probably the most fitting metaphor misunderstanding living planet and humans. We do not need other worlds. We need a mirror. The problem is that it is one-sided. We can not see Solaris. But Solaris is ...
'I have always complained about the film adaptation, which I have seen, until he had picked up one of them. " A screen adaptation of the director allows it to pass through their ideas and thoughts. If it does not, then it's just a naked retelling stories. Someone approves the first option. And someone / Stanislaw Lem - splashing saliva and stomps her foot. I hold no man's position. For me the main thing that the director carrying gag, not supplanted the meaning of the book. The problem is that in the film, Chris will decide the fate of Solyaristiki: Continue to research or write a report on the phasing station. Chris will solve the problem of man.
Tarkovsky relishes shots. Seaweed swaying in the water. Drops of warm summer rain that fills the empty cups left on the terrace. Children frolicking in the rays of the scorching sun, from which it is possible to hide except under a tree, whose branches, like the spokes of an umbrella, stretch out on the footage. Little House on the road, in which live the father and aunt of the protagonist. In short, the homeland. Motherland - that most closely Tarkovsky. The fact that he is ready to take forever. Can I exchange the house Chris in rivulets on the cold indifference of the cosmos Solaris?
Earth scenes are great. But probably the best episode I've seen in Solaris - is a 4-minute ride on the pilot Henri car. Transitional moment. A metaphor of flight to Chris Solaris. In Stanley Kubrick was a psychedelic trip through infinity. Tarkovsky -. Flyovers, tunnels and interchanges, shot in Tokyo
When cigar-shaped capsule with placed in it Chris (Donatas Banionis) reaches the station, Tarkovsky begins to conduct its main line. Solaris takes out cabinets Kelvin subconscious Snauta and Sartorius one skeleton: Dwarf, Hari and Something. Solaris phantoms projected visit the few inhabitants of the station and bring them to mind.
What it wants to say Solaris / Tarkovsky? That people have a conscience, a sense of guilt, which can easily manifest itself in a physical sense. In scenes where Snaut or Sartorius hide their guest by Kelvin (perhaps even from the viewer), this idea is very much observed.
What is his father's house, which they left in obedience to thirst for knowledge, which limitless and insatiable. The episode with Chris mom. Room. Objects and furniture covered with plastic - so we do not keep in mind the location of the books on the shelves, objects on the table, we can not always play one time or another in my head like a film. Very original course.
Mom ... Mom, I'm sorry ... Mom, come here.
Guests trying to remind us of who we are. Nowhere Gathering, Andrei Tarkovsky carries this idea through the adaptation of the way to the final. Terrible finale.
Of course, all this was done at the expense of lemovskoy idea. No asimmetriad and simmetriad, no two suns, around which revolves Solaris. None of Solaris. There is only dostoevschina where matters of repentance and redemption are above the problems of knowledge of extraterrestrial intelligence.
monkey took a stick in his hands, and killed another monkey became a man. Then the man conquered space. The man asked the question: 'How does it work?' - and I answered it. Accumulating knowledge about the structure of the universe. Solaris as Dave embryo against the background of the Earth from Space Odyssey, represents a barrier through which humanity is not yet ready to go until the answer to the main question currently. Simply put, if people can not understand ourselves, then to where they thinking ocean
Solaris Solaris Tarkovsky - is the inner world of anyone who can not be curbed as well as possible with the help of two miserable rods make contact with the thinking ocean. Solaris here, albeit unwittingly, serves another metaphor. Not even Solaris - an obstacle, leading to some sacred truth, and the people themselves, rather, their memories Solaris brings to neutrino matter. Pushing characters with surreal manifestations of their past, Solyaric a chance to rethink the past, let it go and start a new life. Life without guilt or remorse. Life, which will be ruled by love and peace.
Hold demons in their rooms, and Snaut Sartorius saw no solution to the problem in itself, but in annihilation. And Chris ... If you associate a dialogue with her mother Chris, increasing attachment to the Kelvin dead lover Hari and his return to Earth together, it is not difficult to guess which way the chosen protagonist.
I read a novel by Stanislaw Lem, and I have to compare. Tarkovsky took a great movie, where embodied human philosophy through the prism of science fiction. Many scenes from the movie literally cut into the head and, like a splinter, do not go there for a long time, and finally ending finishes. This Solaris by Andrei Tarkovsky.
