“Where is she when I need you? I opened the door, and on the doorstep instead of Mary Poppins who is worth? Pf .. Walt Disney.”
Yes, it’s just the company’s founder Walter Disney “Walt Disney Sompany”, creator of the first in the history of cinema sound, music and animated features, the man whose perseverance to be envied – 20 years to seek the right to fulfill the promise given to his daughters – to film “Miss Perfection” – Mary Poppins. And not only him, I admire the tenacity, stubbornness, yes, yes, stubborn Pamela Travers – 20 years, year after year, to deny and deny, that’s what it means to stem the Australian and English excerpt. It tells the story of this confrontation film directed by John Lee Hancock’s “Saving Mr. Banks.”
Writers Sue Smith and Kelly Marcel (it’s worth noting that this is also the acclaimed screenwriter already, but not yet released movie “50 shades of gray”) was created several storylines: the first I have voiced, the second line is somewhat deeper and rooted in the distant past Pamela Travers, is the past – childhood, where her name was Helen Lyndon Goff. What happens when the past intertwines with the present? And there is something called a miracle, when conventional becomes fabulous blooms when magic. The magic of cinema, which is impossible without music and without music Thomas Newman, who has not heard the soundtrack to 007: Coordinates Skayfol or Valley? That’s what I think.
Is it possible without the magic of the wizard? Or magician? When I first heard about this film, I have no doubt why it has identified the role of Mr. Disney – Tom Hanks, who if he is not? Pamela same personality so complex, multifaceted, seemingly neohvatna not for anyone except for the Mrs. Travers, and no, Emma Thompson coped brilliantly with this role. I want to mention the young star Annie Rose Buckley, played a small Helen Lyndon Goff, I hope this we do not say goodbye to her. “Palace and gallant knight to boot …” – Colin Farrell breathed into this film hope and belief in a bright future, he wants to believe, it is impossible not to love, they can not but admire, despite the sad fate of Mr. Travers, Mr. Banks forever saved Mary Poppins . Paul Giamatti … he makes any painting revival, in the same role he played even a minor but damn what a charming and insightful from a personal driver …
Why this film is not worth watching? If you expect a wonderful tale, easily and simply, this film is not for you. If you are expecting a documentary with an abundance of facts, this film is not for you. If you are expecting a story about Walter Disney or Mary Poppins, this film is not for you.
This is a real film, harsh, cruel, real, sometimes comic, sometimes with a hint of drama, it is really lively, actually like life itself.
Why is this movie worth seeing? A number of reasons favors this: boldly and cleverly constructed dialogues, original musical adaptation of the insert 1964, brilliant and inspired acting, magical duo of music and feelings finally the whole story – live, real, stretched by as much as 20 years, for a grand result premiere, the finale.
For all this, and I donated two o’clock aesthetic pleasure, for a push to the overview of all results and creative disputes prerikany Walter Disney and Mrs. Travers, with conflicting emotions and inspiration – THANKS! And …
