He lived himself, but was a man of Mark Herman. He worked in that shooting as a director, sometimes wrote scripts, it happened that produced their few, and not the most popular movies. And suddenly he fell into his hands a novel by Irish writer John Boyne, called 'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas'. This novel is a masterpiece among the literary critics, so its film adaptation - it is solved. The book was published in the year 2006, and two years later the viewer could already see him filming. And as the book itself and all films were inclined to call a little masterpiece. Could hardly count on such a success, Mark Herman, but it is a fact, it happened, it happened. And 'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas' stubbornly kept on the Top250 KP, ranking in the first hundred of the best paintings of all time according to users of the resource of the movie.
Irishman John Boyne wrote sentimental and tragic story about the friendship of two young boys the time of the Second world war. The first of them - Bruno (Asa Butterfield) - the son of a high military rank in Nazi Germany named Ralph (David Thewlis). Soon her father is sent to command a concentration camp for Jews. Little Bruno goes there with his father, mother Elsa (Vera Farmiga) and her sister Gretel (Amber Beattie). Away from the big cities Bruno have no one to play, and he goes in search of mates. Fortunately, that while he was traveling, he saw a strange farm where people work all dressed in strange striped uniforms. With lust that is where Bruno find someone to have fun with, he comes to 'farm', surrounded by barbed wire and suddenly notices a boy in the 'pajamas' his age. They met, Bruno learns that a boy named Shmuel (Jack Scanlon), and they begin to make friends. Gradually the same during his carefree, wild notes, that is heating up in a family environment, that the father behaves aggressively, that the mother is constantly upset by something, and my sister is interested in the ideas of the Nazis. At the same time, Shmuel tells strange stories that are created within the 'farm' ...
These carefree eyes of Bruno, we are all well aware that all this is not no 'farm', but a real 'death factory'. We understand that all the atrocities Ralph turned himself into a ruthless monster who did not receive any friendship or even family, for the sake of well-being, though his sincere belief in the ideas of Nazism - it is a question, rather it is a social climber who only obeys his superiors, wishing to curry favor . We understand why it is so upset and why Elsa is increasingly taking place in the family scandals. Oh, she does exactly what something does not accept, but forced to reckon with the current fanatical foundations. But we do not understand why it is so keen fascism Gretel and we are there pockets of anger that I want to take her and shake as long as all this belief came from it, and then take that belief and burn, and then be scattered in the wind. But the more we know that faith is not burned, and burned those who in the opinion of the Third Reich were impious nations: Jews, Slavs, Gypsies ... blue eyes of Bruno, we remember with horror that went through those who lived in a 30- x-50-ies of the last century can not blame
Bruno in his nesmyshlonosti -. it is only a child, and it attracts the game on the street, my friends, it all interesting and sit in one place for the boy is very difficult. He still does not understand why it did not come to the grandmother, citing poor health ... It was the usual child's play, but one act, an act treacherous Bruno unlikely to forgive himself, or rather would be forgiven, when he grew up and realized that for 'farm' was not far from his home. For Asa Butterfield, who played Bruno film 'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas' has become a springboard to a great movie, and then he had to withdraw from Martin Scorsese 'time keepers' and 'Ender's Game' with Harrison Ford. But compared to the last film Asa Butterfield lost sensibility and childlike, which reigned in his character of 'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas'. While the role of Bruno is clearly the best for beginners movie star. David Thewlis has repeatedly demonstrated his character can be reconstructed in the character of the course of the film (for example, in 'total eclipse'), here he shows the same thing. From the habits and values ​​of his new Ralph gets really creepy that you even forget that before you an actor. Vera Farmiga was deservedly nominated for several film awards for best dramatic role. Honestly, I'm not thrilled with this actress, but in 'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas' she played a tragic role gorgeous. In Shmul, or rather Jack Scanlon, somehow I did not go to the quarry, like Asa Butterfield, though he played better than his team-mate. And about Amber Beattie, the estb Gretel ... Each have a poster on her wall with a swastika and Nazi slogans stuck to ...
Movies tragic and terrible movie. It is shown through the eyes of quite a child who does not understand what's going on around. At the end of the film I was born the question: who is to blame for the tragedy, or someone suffered God's punishment? In general, look to give yourself an answer, and show the film to their children, so they know from what our ancestors freed the world!
