"You can not dream ..." Movie Review Essay & Film Analysis

One of the best, if not the best, the Soviet film school. And the well-known children's director Ilya Frez allowed himself to go beyond the social, contrasting love not only tradition, but also the duty
However, the idea is not new and prompted by two classic works -. 'Romeo and Juliet', of course, is not obvious Turgenev's novel ' Fathers and Sons'. But then the classic, to verify its modernity.
first follows from the source Shcherbakova, where the main characters name is Roman and Julia. To the analogy was not wearing such a generalized and destructive, as in Shakespeare, the meaning of (the censors did not want to equate the Soviet society from the Middle Ages), Julia became Katya. Nevertheless ...
Generational line passed through the relationship of teacher Tatyana Nikolayevna and playboy doctor Misha. Miraculously, it was she who carries out the contrast between the generation and the generation of love separation. But not only.
paradox in the fact that the children's position in the film is shown, though not traditionalist, but the corresponding Soviet, and human morality. The position of the mother and the grandmother apparently contradicts it - lies and deception allegedly in the name of salvation, resplendent in his absurdity of the phrase 'such Cach you will have a million!' Finally, as the apotheosis of hypocrisy: 'It is a vicious family and vicious girl!'. Frez thus shows that, contrary to the stereotype, morality, and morality is more characteristic is young, not older generations.
Frez Reisman and continues the line of "If This Be Love? '. Hardly pressure censors, but more to show that times have changed, and the old reactionary views have not opened, but it is reactionary, the director shows otherwise, and school and parents. Teachers revealed only two - the director and remember Tatiana. But their psycho worked out perfectly.
directory name brings to mind the Stalinist type of teacher Raizman. True, the Soviet classic and made of them in nature, but rather gray, but an aggressive mass, overwhelming personality of the student. Even the disciples were to him a lot more interesting. But the director and the interest that was not reinforced concrete and vprone elastic, keeping its 'truth' as ​​a mode of action, mimicking a new reality. However, the slogan 'for the mortification of the flesh to the maturation of the soul' can even cause support. However, much more in her position is not edification, and not violence, and willingness to give up the authority and pressure in education. Oddly enough, the old lady, internally disapproving of love, even in high school (quite innocent, admittedly), is able to more objectively assess the reality. It is more like a character from a year earlier published pictures of Menshov 'Drawing' - a middle-aged teacher, able to maintain integrity, but also to understand the young too. However, here it has become much less charming. And the purpose of it declares not repressive ( 'what we'll see, nothing to do with it (transfer to another school) does not have' - it is veiled purpose of educational and remarkable response to the phrase. "And if this is the rare case ( this feeling?) - then they did not terrible 'at this point, the role of the evil finally goes to the Roman mother
thus, Frez departs from the institutional interpretation of despotism as a social phenomenon, going to a purely generational interpretation in the spirit of the eternal confrontation between fathers and.. children.
Especially ho Rosho noticeable on the fate of the class teacher Tatyana Nikolayevna, played by Helen Nightingale -. air, naive in its own way tragic, as before, but much earth and psychologically explainable If we continue the line '? And if it is love', then it's like have grown Jeanne Prokhorenko heroine, disappointed in his first love, also 'burdened' ideals of Russian literature ... Eternal heritage complex inner drama of a single mother and acquired complex-teacher mother. However, her family drama greater intelligence
That intelligence prevents personal happiness Tatiana (literary name ....) - Mike (Leonid Filatov) explained in a few sentences and play Elena Nightingale and the essence of her character 'As a doctor, I'm a hundred times Chekhov better, but otherwise deliver me from this comparison ',' One condition - you will be the most ordinary baba ... ',' it is not necessary to mold me into something beautiful ... ', etc. Painting and complements the story as Tatiana could become a redhead ... She did pordtalkivaet to the idea that it is not only in the literature, giving samples like Pushkin's Tatyana Larina, but also in personal experience, once 'tainted' by adults, to shout about immorality, while immorality rather peculiar to themselves, esteeming their experience (with the 'million Cach' and hundreds of 'fans', not a' one-woman man '', which declares Roma) for the truth and refuse to evaluate it as a negative. 'Spinster with a kitten' stays with her maiden maximalism and the inability to take mom opinion ... It is surprising that its compensation for their own failure is a positive start - lovers must realize that once could not be herself. The drama of the heroine that she could not give up the ideals of his youth and the literature in favor of life and the imperfection of reality ... And one can hardly blame her for that, because then we will have to abandon the ideals. And it's probably wrong ...
course, opposites to the class teacher become mother Vera (great role Lydia Fedoseeva-Shukshina) and grandmother (a rare negative role of the brilliant Tatiana Peltzer). 'A world without a loved one' - the usual condition of these women (in the words of the same Misha - the most common women). In another film, and on another occasion it was said even harsher: 'furious burghers'. However, caricature and parody here and does not smell. On the contrary, these female characters frighteningly authentic in their quest ... probably vent their complexes and inferiority. It is even possible to understand - by Irina Miroshnichenko against any woman feel jealousy (even if unfounded). Another thing is that they are not looking for love, and superiority, but because their inner psychological uncertainty is transformed into tactics latent (or direct) suppression. As an illustration of good episode in which a person arrogant mother Vera passes trying to say, 'Hello,' Katie. The instinct of the owner as a motive driven by his wife, mother and grandmother-mother-in (both in regard to test her husband, and in relation to grandson-son). No wonder Kate, feelings 'neblagorodstvo' sending Roma to Leningrad, tragic exclaims: 'It is the duty of man only knit!' And then the addition to his own words: 'Only love has the right to be encouraged!' Trying to challenge this truth Tatiana conquered disarming argument: 'How can you live without love?' Perhaps this is the main contradiction of the film -. Love and duty
Whatever it was, but the older generation does not look optimistic - any positive conditional form (Tatiana), nor of course the negative (Roman family). Optimism creators 'You can not dream' because a much more logical than pessimism Shcherbakova, because love must win ... at least in the movies. And happiness (as before) - is when you understand.
