The military conflict in the Middle East developed into uncontrollable use of the bacteriological and chemical weapon. Killing viruses and pathogens instantly extended worldwide, having caused almost absolute mortality. Units survived, but also these "lucky" should realize happened and to solve for themselves, whether they are ready to remain in private with other world. Three pairs – the old man scientist, are no time put the abilities to development of the killing infection which has destroyed the world, and his sick spouse; the girl fighting with approaching madness and her careless groom musician; thrown out on a life roadside the writer, desperately trying to hold the wife, – endure epidemic wave, but appear are not ready to new life.
The film was announced in 2008, and then for leading roles applied Olivia Tirlbi, Robert Pattinson and Dennis Hopper
The popular subject of a doomsday, survival in a global apocalypse, overcoming and revival of life played a malicious joke with the viewer – visitors of cinemas are ready to look as much as necessary at world destruction by asteroids, epidemics, global warming or thermonuclear bombs, are ready to empathize for years to a small group survived in the zombie invasion or endured invasion of aliens, but appear absolutely helpless before the back of such end of the world. Run from walking, fights with newcomers, a survival after accidents in дистриктах and communes it is healthy, but it is destiny of heroes. And how during the moment when the world falls, the simple people still yesterday thinking of the future concert, the dispatched summaries in search of the new work, bought new foam for a bath and suddenly appeared in emptiness feel? The director and screenwriter Brian Horiuti looked at a doomsday other eyes.
As scenery for demonstration of apocalyptic America founders chose streets of Detroit enduring unlucky days of the most depressive and socially degrading city of the United States
Having on hands the budget in pity even for Russia 1,3 million dollars, "The Day After Tomorrow", "Epidemic" or «2012» you will not remove, therefore all admirers of colourful special effects and being remembered death should suffer – the suspense of «One milliard share» is forced by cutting of news plots, disturbing sounds of a siren, announcements and comments on television and radio. Die in the film much, but it is modest, without theatrical gestures, the last wishes and usually off-screen. But from it it is even more terrible – a deadly suspension, which in air should be only slightly more than one milliard share to kill the person, it is really ruthless, terrible and incorruptible.
Founders of the film believe that an apocalypse – at all time of heroes. In live Horiuti leaves people not so obvious: three pairs show the different generations, the different life priorities, the different relation to the events and differently find a place for a step forward. Someone clings to the last hope, someone aspires to finish rather terrible cargo of responsibility, someone simply lives each new minute. In it, perhaps, there is the truth, "realness" if this word is pertinent in the story about hypothetical development of history of mankind. Certainly, we would like, that in case of world cataclysm we were headed by clever, courageous, skillful people, but, most likely, the fate will dispose exactly so – simple people with the problems, the unresolved relations, the skeletons in a case and absolutely unsuitable for construction of the new world will survive.
So depressive, hopeless and fully distributors were frightened of an apocalyptic look even, in the USA the film left very limited hire. Even more dissatisfied there were critics and not numerous audience – the film, you see drives in melancholy and marks time. Yes, the picture abounds with flashbacks and has fragmentary chronology, but it "Share" and repeats life – three intertwining histories are similar to someone’s memoirs, variegated, but emotional. Besides, the film collected the fine cast which let is not shining, but in any case interesting – at Frank Landzhella, Rosario Douson and Theresa Palmer’s game to look simply pleasantly always.
